Jay B. Myers is an entrepreneur, author, mentor, and the former Founder/CEO of Interactive Solutions, Inc. (ISI), a firm that specializes in videoconferencing, distance learning, telemedicine and audio-visual sales and support. With a background in sales, and a heart for entrepreneurship, Jay and his team grew ISI to a $25 million company before selling it in 2018. Since then, Jay has spent his time mentoring other entrepreneurs about the ins and outs of business ownership. Jay will be releasing his third book, Rounding Third and Heading for Home, this spring.
Rounding Third and Heading for Home shares the many components that go into the sale of your business from someone who has actually gone through it. You’ll learn:
"I ordered the third book in the Jay Myers trilogy of business and life lessons, and it did not disappoint! An enjoyable read from a seasoned CEO."
Jay uses his story to illustrate some of the most important lessons that entrepreneurs and business owners/leaders need to understand, such as how to not just grow your business, but add value and prepare your company for the sale, ways to strengthen your corporate culture and brand equity, how to know when your business is ready to be sold, how to position your company during the process of the sale, and even some very specific tactics that could make and/or save you a lot of money in the end.
"Jay Myers’ Rounding Third and Heading for Home is an end-to-end inside look at the life cycle of a modern business through the eyes of the man who built it, ran it, and sold it. Read the book, invite Jay to speak to your group and you will have the benefit of a real MBA for which he did the time and paid the tuition."
Reading about another entrepreneur who has the same outlook has given me greater self-confidence in my own plans. There are many questions that business people have when imagining the future of their companies, and it’s reassuring to hear the story of someone who recently passed the major corporate milestones.
I found it hard to put down and truly enjoyed it. I had to laugh at so many similar experiences that you talked about. For instance, I self-financed my start up and banks didn’t want to talk to me…After a few years of profitability and success, I stopped taking their calls.
I especially found your succession plan with Jordan and the M&A process fascinating.
Bottom line, this book is a must read for any young entrepreneur or existing business owner. There are lots of valuable nuggets that can be taken!
[Rounding Third and Heading for Home] was a wonderful read. I found it thought-provoking and insightful.
See and hear more from Jay at these events!
