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.
