An Interview With Dean Matthews of 1-800 BLINDS

1-800 BLINDS provides customers with a wide range of blinds, shutters, and other window furnishings, and is based in Leumeah, NSW. Managing Director Dean Matthews has been in the industry for 11 years, and has experience working with both large and small businesses. Today, he sat down to talk with us about how he got his start.
Mr. Matthews, could you tell us a bit about how you prepared for your career in the industry?
The obvious answer would be business studies. The less obvious answer is that the skills were picked up along the way throughout my working career. Each time I worked in a business, I could never look at it as just a job. I immersed myself into every business I ever worked for, and had to know everything about it. I was never one to watch the clock and would quite often be the first person there, and the last to leave.
Do you think your education and experience have played different roles in your training?
It would be fair to say I learned as much or if not more from the businesses I worked in that were poorly run. Business studies for the most part helped me understand the clerical side of the business, as well as the importance of planning and monitoring the health of the business.
Has there been anyone who has helped you out along the way?
Yes, I have had some wonderful mentors over the years who have run very successful businesses.
Awesome! Are there any particular statements you recall that helped inspire you?
I still remember a sheet metal worker in his sixties telling me, “Get out of here while you’re still young, or you will end up like me stuck here forever.” I laughed then, but I now realise it was a turning point for me.
