Co-owner and cre­ative di­rec­tor of the Win­nipeg­based video mar­ket­ing agency Coele­ment “I’m read­ing an in­ter­est­ing one right now, an old bi­og­ra­phy on Ben­jamin Franklin, called The True Ben­jamin Franklin by SSyd­ney Ge­orge Fisher. It was writ­ten in the late 1800s, so it has an older writ­ing style, but it’s still quite easy to digest. Franklin was such a re­mark­able man. He had just two years of for­mal ed­u­ca­tion, be­tween the ages of 8 and 10, yet he still had all th­ese amaz­ing ac­com­plish­ments.”
