Hi there! We are Mark, Christina (and Marvin). We have been married to each other for more than 10 years and married to Marvin since 2017. Marvin is our baby and we pour a ton of love, sweat and tears into him so he can grow up to be the best version of himself.
Give people the right tools to be productive and fight procrastination so they can close the gap between who they are and who they want to be.
Hey there! I am Christina and I am a master procrastinator.
In 2014 I started an e-commerce business, and very quickly I was overwhelmed by the mountain of tasks that had to get done. I tried a couple of to-do apps to help me get my act together, but none of them felt right. So I decided to build a tool that worked for me.
While my new tool helped me feel more organized, I still procrastinated with getting the work done. So I did what I always do when I have a problem: I googled it all day long. I read everything I could find on procrastination and started to talk to lots of other procrastinators. The more I researched, the more I saw the absolute trail of misery procrastination and low productivity leaves in its wake: lost dreams, unachieved goals, anxiety, stress, self-hatred, utter hopelessness, and depression. Something needs to be done!
From then on I made it my mission to try and help as many people as possible to be effective in their life. I started to add features to my tool, incorporating scientific theories about procrastination and productivity that I had learned about. The vision for Amazing Marvin was born — a tool that not only lets you store your tasks but actually helps you get them done.
In late 2017 Marvin was finally released to the world. But there is so much more that can be done to make Marvin even more helpful. I hope you will join me in this journey to fight back against a terrible affliction that is preventing millions of people from living up to their potential.
