You will often hear the COMPUTER EXPLORERS corporate team encourage franchisees to visit one another. We believe it’s vital to business to observe and learn from peers and those that are more experienced.

Everyone on the COMPUTER EXPLORERS team is extremely passionate about our business and anxious to learn more so decided to follow our own advice and visit the Blinds.Com Complex.

I first heard of Blinds.Com, CEO Jay Steinfeld via the Website Not All CEOs Are Jerks His business Blinds.Com is the industry leader in  online window covering sales. I personally met Jay at a local Houston TweetUp and immediately recognized he is a strong leader and started following via social media. This year alone Jay has received the following recognitions: American Marketing Association’s Marketer of the Year, National Call Center of the Year and most recently the Houston Business Journal ranked Blinds.Com as one of the best places to work!

Jay’s blog “No-Nonsense Boss” is a must read. His September post about core values convinced me I needed to visit his complex with my team. Jay says he has two core values: Improve Continuously and Experiment Without Fear. He believes the success of his business comes from “the drive to want to improve, and in the process, tinker with things, fail, and ultimately find better ways…It’s not about the destination; it’s about the process.”

Jay was a gracious host and we left with new ideas and renewed passion to grow COMPUTER EXPLORERS. We are anxious to “Experiment Without Fear.”
