Hi there!

I’m an Internet entrepreneur who founded Minimalister and several other tech companies. What I do best is to bring together great people to build ambitious products that solve important problems.

I publish short blog posts here on diverse topics (which I am not very proud of) and share movie and book reviews on my IMDB and Goodreads accounts. I have published some of my backpacking stories on my Instagram. And I travel quite much.

You can connect with me via traditional EmailLinkedIn, TwitterFacebook, and AngelList. My email is jijo at minimalister dot com. Feel free to reach out.

Enough about me. Here’s something that might be useful for you. Some stuff I use and recommend to my geeky friends (productivity apps mostly):

  • Things 3 as calendar, to-do list and planner. Because I’m a lazy person and I like to keep very little things in my head.
  • Bose QC35Brain.fm to avoid distraction at work.
  • Streaks because it’s a cute little app to help form new habits. Also because I believe in the power of habit.
  • Trello for organising my work, and team collaboration.
  • Slack Fleep for team communication.
  • DeskTime for time tracking at work.
  • Audible because I’m a big fan of audio books.
  • Casts app for listening to podcasts.
  • HeadSpace app to meditate.
  • AutoSleep to automatically track my sleep using Apple watch. Works like magic.
  • Pocket App for saving lengthy articles that I come across while working.
  • Bear App to write.

In case if you’re wondering – yes, I am a productivity enthusiast and use all the above mentioned almost religiously. It gets shit done.

 

Thank you for dropping by. Have a good one!
