Born in 1933, Kenneth Vernon Crane grew up on a farm in New Jersey sharing one bathroom with eight siblings. He learned early in life to be self-reliant, and he took to heart his pop’s platitudes that featured plainspoken advice such as “Plan your work, then work your plan,” and “There are no problems in life, only challenges.”
When working out his plan to serve in the military in order to gain a college education under the GI Bill and make a life with his high school sweetheart, he could only imagine where his cocky attitude and enthusiasm for embracing challenges would take him. He went on to become a public accountant and a tax expert licensed by the IRS, building a clientele of distinguished lawyers, doctors, and CEOs, along with dairy farmers and regular folks. Against all odds this man-wife team ended up multimillionaires.
In Memoirs, Crane looks back at his extraordinary life with candor and characteristic humor, providing an amalgamation of personal philosophies and practical advice culled from a long life well lived. His fascinating story shows how enthusiasm, ingenuity, and the willingness to turn each “Ken-undrum” into a challenge can bring happiness along with success in life.
