With increasing numbers of North Shore residents work from home, but finding themselves isolated and unproductive, WorkTable Marblehead, founded by Mike Rozinsky and Patrick Donegan, offers workers a beautiful, inviting collaborative environment from which to work. ‘Our goal was to establish a place where the community can come together, naturally network, collaborate and get stuff done. Since we opened in June, the interest, connections, creativity and productivity is palpable and with members like Paul Michaels and events like these we are realizing our goal.”
LifehackrDiet In The News
Marblehead startups hope to transform office life. The Marblehead startups, WorkTable and Lifehackrdiet.com, put a different spin on the trend, but their goal is the same: changing the way people work, for the better.
“Together, LifehackrDiet.com and WorkTable Marblehead, offer a modern day alternative for office workers to being chained to your desk, which even if you work from home, means too much sitting, which can lead to obesity, high blood pressure, diabetes, and depression,” Michaels said. “With a few simple changes, people can be more active, healthier and more productive — which is what the LifehackrDiet.com is all about.”
