In 1971, Sandra Kurtzig was a 24-year-old working wife, thinking of starting a family and looking for a job she could do at home. With 2 years' experience selling computer time-sharing and some knowledge of programming, she started her own business helping small- to mid-size companies streamline their manufacturing and accounting operations. Starting with $2,000 and working in a spare bedroom, Kurtzig built ASK Computer Systems into the fastest-growing software company in the United States, with clients including Eastmen Kodak, Hughes Aircraft, and Emerson Electric. In 1981, Kurtzig became the first woman to take a high-tech company public, bringing off a successful public offering in the midst of a Wall Street slump. In this book she shares the business knowledge, resourcefulness, and will to win that made her impressive success possible.

Ms. Kurtzig
My name is Michael L. Brody. I am written you not on behalf of your book; but on the behalf of genealogical interest. My grandfather was Morris Brody. I strongly believe we are
related?!? I am familiar of your father (Barney) and his history? Concerning his "adventures" through Omaha, Chicago and California. I also would relate a history of our mutual grandfather? You possibly have two half-siblings, originating in Detroit? please contact me at earliest convenience.
Yours respectfully
Mike Brody
