"Joy, Inc." and "Chief Joy Officer" author Richard Sheridan is also the CEO, chief storyteller and co-founder of Menlo Innovations. When Sheridan decided to start his own company, he and his partners decided that the company’s purpose would be to bring joy to the world through software, and to teach this method to others. Sheridan was featured on the cover of Forbes magazine in 2003, sharing his “hire yourself” story with the world.

Menlo has gone on to win the Alfred P. Sloan award for Business Excellence in Workplace Flexibility for eight straight years and has earned five revenue awards from Inc. magazine. Sheridan spends the majority of his time sharing the Menlo Way through teaching classes, leading tours, speaking at conferences and mentoring entrepreneurs in the community and sharing joy.
