What would it be like to go to work every day and feel inspired, have fun, feel free to experiment and fail, and look forward to evolving? This is the type of consciousness that my guest today intentionally created for himself and for his team. You’re listening to Jewish Money Matters, I’m Yael Trusch, welcome to the Show.
I have Jay Steinfeld, Founder and CEO of Blinds.com with me. We talk about his new book that just came out last week, Lead from the Core: The 4 Principles for Profit and Prosperity. What are those 4 principles? How do they apply in business and life? Jay built the largest window blinds retailer in the world and later sold the company to Home Depot. What he built was much more than an online blinds retailer, as you’ll soon discover. He led humans, he grew humans, and in the process grew himself. What were some of the pivotal and challenging moments of this journey? What did he learn as a child about money and business? The personal challenge that led Jay to get crystal clear and committed to the 4 principles he will share with you today.
Jay remained as Blinds.com CEO after he sold it, and later joined The Home Depot Online Leadership Team. After stepping away from these roles in early 2020, he teaches entrepreneurship at Rice University’s Jones Graduate School of Business and has increased his involvement on numerous private company boards and serves as a director of the public company Masonite (NYSE: DOOR). He also supports numerous charities.
Jay is an Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year and has earned a Lifetime Achievement Award from the Houston Technology Center. Active as an industry speaker on topics including corporate culture, core values, how to scale a start-up, and disruption, he has more than 100 published articles and writes a column for Inc.com.
