Hello, I’m Michael Sliwinski, founder of Nozbe - to-do app for modern teams. I write about productivity, #NoOffice, #iPadOnly and I believe that work is not a place you go to, it’s a thing you do.

Michael Sliwinski

Let’s talk about your team’s productivity!

I’m the founder of Nozbe and Nozbe Teams - to-do apps for busy professionals and teams, which I’ve been running for the last 13 years. I’m also a writer (#iPadOnly and #NoOffice) and serial podcaster.

With the launch of Nozbe Teams I’m all about “team productivity”. Basically:

I help small teams do great things by working in a truly modern way.

My team is all-remote and we all work from our “home offices” (just like the one pictured above) while delivering two global apps with more than 700,000 users worldwide.

    😎 🎬 Drink water. Just listen to Cristiano Ronaldo!

    Friday, July 9, 2021

    Sugared drinks are a big part of our pop culture. They have all the marketing money in the world and they try to sell us on the idea that drinking sugar-bubbly drinks 🥤 is good for us.
