Infusionsoft Co-founders Help Small Business Owners Stop the Madness with Debut of Book

Small Business Software Entrepreneurs Clate Mask, Scott Martineau Share Lessons Learned, Practical Tips in Conquer the Chaos: How to Grow a Successful Small Business Without Going Crazy, Available Today

Gilbert, Ariz. (June 8, 2010) - In the next 12 months 600,000 new small businesses will be created. By the end of the year, half of them will have shut their doors forever. In answer to this startling statistic, Clate Mask and Scott Martineau, co-founders of Infusionsoft wrote their first book to help every business owner and aspiring entrepreneur get control of their business and their life. In Conquer the Chaos: How to Grow a Successful Small Business without Going Crazy (Wiley & Sons) Mask and Martineau explain the six strategies to find your freedom, grow your business and achieve your purpose. Conquer the Chaos, now available online and in stores, is ranked #1 on Amazon in the entrepreneurship book category, and ranked as a Top-100 book.

Written by business owners, for business owners, Conquer the Chaos enables entrepreneurs to reevaluate their lives, revitalize their companies, and realize the freedom and success that their hard work deserves. It's for the parent who has missed one too many little league games and the entrepreneur who feels buried by their business.

Mask and Martineau offer lessons learned anyone running a small business today will recognize. The strategies offered by Conquer the Chaos allow readers to:

  • Balance work, family, and emotional and physical health
  • Grow your business without being consumed by it
  • Cultivate a realistic and disciplined optimism
  • Finally get organized so your business can grow
  • Fix the follow-up breakdowns that hamper your business growth
  • Liberate yourself from busywork through automation

As co-founders of Infusionsoft, the leading provider of email marketing 2.0 software for small businesses, Mask and Martineau have made a career out of helping small businesses grow having worked with thousands of entrepreneurs.

"Despite the recent recession - or perhaps because of it - there has been an epic shift in people diving into entrepreneurship," says Clate Mask, CEO, co-founder of Infusionsoft. We are in the Entrepreneurial Revolution and like all revolutions, there will be massive casualties. We're not okay with that. It's the reason why Scott and I wrote Conquer the Chaos."

In Conquer the Chaos, Mask and Martineau share their experiences of building a business from the ground up, downloading their experiences of starting a business into one brutally honest narrative revealing the early days of their own chaos when they could barely make payroll, lived on pizza and lived with families that rarely saw them. Their stories will ring true with business owners and aspiring entrepreneurs everywhere.

"Whether you're a business owner or an aspiring entrepreneur, chaos will creep in after you've started the business," says Martineau. "And for us, just like most others, you have to be intentional in getting past it. This book was born out of our own journey in chaos, as well as the tens of thousands of experiences we've had working with small businesses. Through our own experience and the experiences of our customers, we overcame the chaos. Clate and I are living examples of that."
