Growing up in Arvin, California, a modest town of 21,000 about 100 miles north of Los Angeles, Elia Quintana remembers driving past the hundreds of oil fields that dot the arid hills of nearby Bakersfield, their beams and heads bobbing like giraffes at a waterhole.

It took less than two weeks on the job as Catania Oils’ new financial controller for Mike Coutu to identify the one glaring weakness in the company’s process-efficiency efforts—other than using old plastic sight tubes to gauge Catania’s massive vats of olive and vegetable oils by eye, that is. “You could tell just by looking […]

While honoring each client’s confidentiality, Gerald B. Goldberg has anecdotes aplenty about the issues a household may face should the most fiscally savvy member die or become incapacitated by age, illness or injury.
