A Risk Worth Taking – Meet New Blinds.commer Kris

r July 18, 2013 | B Uncategorized

One of our newest marketing team members, Kris, shares her perspective about what it’s like to become a part of the Blinds.com family. My first day at Blinds.com I was a little worried. Why?

I was nervous I’d end up having to quote Gob Bluth (“I’ve made a huge mistake”) if things didn’t turn out well. I can honestly say that it didn’t take long for…
