Timesheets.com was founded in the heart of the Silicon Valley in 2004 by the Cal Poly educated, independently business savvy, Joel Slatis. His coder, Anthony Galano, and web developer, Forest Walz, have worked with Joel since its inception and, while the company has grown since then, this same group of guys manages the development and maintenance of the software.
Joel’s insight into small business, Anthony’s obsession with elegant code, and Forest’s exceptional eye for beauty enabled them to create an intuitive time tracking software which is powerful enough to suit the needs of the growing business. Today, their software is valued by thousands of the nation’s hardest-working small business owners. Stretching over Canada, the US, and several other countries worldwide, Timesheets.com serves businesses ranging in size from 1 to 500 employees, with the majority being small companies with under 100 employees.
Peggy Emch came into the mix a little later contributing her writing and problem solving skills. She writes much of the text you read on the website, launched the blog in 2009, and is often the voice you hear when you call in for tech support. She can walk you through just about any of your calculation woes as she graduated with a degree in mathematics. Aside from working at Timesheets.com, Peggy spends about a tenth of her time playing music, another tenth writing blogs, another tenth snowboarding (in the winters), a third of the time she spends sleeping, and just less than a fifth of her day she’s just messing around. Based on these calculations, can you figure out how many hours per week she works?
