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.

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 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.

This site is in: English (this), Spanish and Polish

I post stuff mostly here in English, but I do sometimes write or do interviews in Polish or do webinars or public speaking in Spanish. I also speak German, for the record.

BTW, this is my new site, which I just launched. My previous site is here: Sliwinski.com.

Also - this site is free and open source. Copy anything you want, just credit me back, thanks!

    What I’m thankful for this year
