263 — Jay Steinfeld

Podcast Summary:

Jay started as a Founder in his garage. Jay took orders on his cell phone while traveling around. Jay worked hard to build Blinds.com to the powerhouse it is today. I’ve been reading Jay’s pieces on Inc.com for awhile. I truly appreciate his practical wisdom, commitment to improvement and his continuous focus on people. It was a treat for me to have an opportunity to interview such an American business icon. I think you’ll appreciate hearing him speak about:

  • How the death of his wife impacted him personally, helped shape his approach to leadership, and helped craft the culture of Blinds.com
  • Why Home Depot bought Blinds.com
  • The four values that drive the success of Blinds.com

Here’s my favorite quote from the interview: “Stop thinking about yourself and start thinking about other people and make them the best they can be.”
