What are you reading?

The Franz Bakery Innovator from 1970!

In 1970, Wes Smith single-handedly brought computerized systems to Franz Bakery’s accounting department (receivable, payable, payroll, and route accounting). Who was Wes Smith? My Grampa!

Keeping Your To-Do’s Straight

I’ve found that to-do lists are different for everyone. Some people are creative, others are analytical, and a few fall right in the middle using either physical or digital checklists during different seasons of life.
