On April 1, 1991, in a land far, far close to this one - two floors up, actually - Sherman & Co. was born. No clients. No employees. No shoes. (Not strong in math, I still found it to be a good equation: No employees+no clients = no shoes.)
We now begin our 19th year. Hmmm, that would mean I was 21 when I founded the company. (Again, why the scoffing?) Now, a whole floor, not just a spare room, with art work (some original), oriental rugs (copies, sadly, not originals), glass-block windows, dozens of plants that survive my infamous "tough love" gardening methods, computers (nine, I think, but I've lost count - but if that's right, it would be eight more than 1991, and some are laptops and all are networked), and - a big drum roll - the Internet and e-mail and - a REALLY big drum roll - clients!
Gone is the gooey-paper fax machine, the computer with the black screen with green lettering, the answering machine, the non-digital camera, the printer that was a size that matched its price (huge), and the Rolodex file.

Save the date: April 1, 2011, when we have a party celebrating the completion of our 20th year. Dress code? Shoes optional.
