In this CNBC.com web-only video interview with Tyler Mathisen, CEO Dad creator Tom Stern says his comic strip character is "obsessed with running his family like a business" and a "composite of every work-obsessed pompous blowhard that I've ever met."

Stern, author of the new book "CEO Dad: How to Avoid Getting Fired By Your Family," also joins Tyler on CNBC's High Net Worth on Sunday, April 22 at 8PM and 11PM ET.

CNBC has an agreement with Stern to air 5 one-minute vignettes of "CEO Dad" in the coming months.
