I first met TJ Muehleman at ThePort Network. TJ was running the engineering team, and I immediately respected his ability to cross between the technical and business worlds.

Not long after I started PlacePunch, TJ launched his own startup, We&Co, with a mission for helping the service industry.

TJ was kind enough to share the We&Co story with me and talk about how after many years, their company evolved into Standard Code. It’s a really incredible story of how TJ and his co-founder persevered for years with no salaries, hung around long enough to find a problem they could solve, and turned it into a growing business.
