Are you listening to the BlindMatrix Podcast?
Running a successful business in the Blinds Industry is no easy task. Thousands of people around the world have built successful Blinds, Curtains, Shutters and Awnings business that now employ hundreds of thousands of people.
What is the BlindMatrix Podcast?
We at BlindMatrix decided to start the podcast to inspire such people from around the world working in the industry. If you are reading this, we mean you!!
We believe that passion is a crucial ingredient to building any successful business, community and industry. Through the podcast interviews we share inspiring stories from the people that make the industry what it is today. We introduce listeners to various speakers, shining a light on businesses, products and services, how the speakers got into the industry, their successes and challenges, what motivates them to stay positive along the way and how they feel about the future.
Why Tune In?
Stories are a vital social currency, helping to bring people together and build community. Last year has been a challenging year for all of us, as individuals and as business owners. We must all look for ways to stay positive, hopeful and motivated as we move into the future.
Running a business is a tricky and challenging endeavor. Not everyone will have time to make their own mistakes and learn from them. We hope that business owners and their employees can benefit from the stories shared in The BlindMatrix Podcast episodes.
