Not Your Typical Friday But I'll Take It.

Jim Murray · Fridays, for me at least, are basically 'figure out next week' days. · But this Friday is a little different. I'm off to Oakville for a meeting with a client to discuss something that's as rare as hen's teeth in this business, which is their upcoming (in 2018) 100th anniversary ...
