Jim Kendall: The final Labor Day. Probably
Sep 1, 2019 1:00 AM
After 15 years, 735 columns (counting this one) and a tad more than 367,000 words about small businesses and the entrepreneurs who built and now manage them, it's appropriate, as my current editor Rich Klicki says, to make Labor Day weekend the last of my Daily Herald small business columns.
Jim Kendall: There's something about being an entrepreneur
Aug 25, 2019 1:00 AM
