Starting a business is easy. Growing a successful business: not so much. The statistics are grim: less than 20% of the businesses started each year survive their 5th anniversary.
Jay Myers, founder of Interactive Solutions, Inc. in Memphis, Tennessee is one such survivor. Jay has built a company that, by tapping into the demand for high-tech video conferencing and communication equipment, continues to grow even beyond the 10 year anniversary. Finding the way, however, wasn't easy.
Facing cash flow problems, a partnership divorce, and even an embezzling employee, there were many days that Jay thought he was going to end up just another statistic. Actually, he did: Interactive Solutions, Inc. is part of an elite club that has made the INC 500- INC magazine's list of America's fastest-growing private companies-twice.
Jay shares his lessons on how he did it in "Keep Swinging" a story of overcoming adversity and achieving small business success.
You can order Keep Swinging in paperback or as an e-book for your iPad, Nook and Kindle.
…the heartfelt candor with which Jay allows us into his personal path, thoughts, and feelings that compels and inspires others to maintain their own path… makes this a great read.
