Praise

“Clay Mathile dives into educating entrepreneurs with the same energy he used to build a billion-dollar brand from the ground up. This is a book of lessons learned through living.”
—Steven Bertoni, Associate Editor, Forbes

“Run Your Business, Don’t Let It Run You gives you the road map for ‘working on your business, not in it’ and for turning your big dreams into reality. And you don't have to do it alone.”
—Anita Campbell, Publisher, Small Business Trends

“Using Aileron’s System of Professional Management, we went from 65 employees to 205 employees. As the heavy construction industry grew by less than 5 percent over the past five years, Kelchner Inc. has grown by 95 percent. This book can help you grow your business and become more profitable!”
—Todd Kelchner, CEO, Kelchner, Inc.
