Duffified Live: Rick Steele of SelectBlinds

Read more

An encounter in Long Beach, CA brought Chef Brian Duffy and Rick Steele together for what would be a friendship that has been around for the last 8 years.

Rick Steele is a self-made man of many things. He is an American entrepreneur and Founder and CMO of Selectblinds, LLC, an online e-tailer of independently branded window fashions. In 2016, his company, SelectBlinds.com, became the first retailer to stop selling corded custom window covering products, leading industry efforts to change manufacturer safety standards and prevent the deaths and injuries that result annually from children who become entangled in window covering cords. He is also a business speaker, philanthropist, and author of business and children’s books.

Today’s conversation talks about his latest accomplishment, a World Marathon Finisher. Yes, Rick has just finished seven marathons in seven days on seven continents. This title is a massive one for Rick who believes that “the brain lies to you.” The brain said “I was done” yet I just did five more push-ups.

Rick’s vision is one of the great things but the most important thing to him is his family, the ability to maintain a great home life, and a stable positive environment. That’s put Rick and his family in a great place and you can feel his pride when he speaks about his family!

Ecommerce & Startups with Select Blinds Founder Rick Steele | BBB 077

Read more

Rick Steele is the founder and chief marketing officer of Select Blinds, an online retailer specializing in the very best in window fashion. His company was one of the very first blinds retailers to go totally cordless in their designs, and within 10 years of launching they were able to grow revenue to over $65 million. Rick is also an expert on Internet traffic and conversion rates and believes that it’s essential to face adversity if you want true personal and professional growth.

In this episode, Rick discusses how he went from selling Beanie Babies to selling blinds, elaborates on his decision to take a risk and invest in cordless blinds, and explains why he believes nothing good ever comes from being comfortable.

The Finer Details of This Episode:

  • What are some elements of ecommerce that we take for granted today that were much harder to pull off when Rick was starting out?
  • The reason Rick chose to specialize in blinds rather than other retail products.
  • Why Rick decided to sell his products and only his products through his website early on.
  • The series of events that led to Rick appearing on Extreme Home Makeovers.
  • The vital reason Select Blinds invested so much time and effort into creating cordless products and why Rick is okay with the growth it cost them.
  • How Select Blinds got creative when it came down to competing with Amazon.
  • Rick relates Select Blinds’ misadventures in outsourcing and what lessons he took away from that experience.
  • Why Rick has an entire series of marathons lined up for the coming year.


“Everything kinda originated out of my one-bedroom house, and we’re now sixteen years into this game selling blinds.”

“You have to create your own social proof.”

“Truly it’s about the social proof it creates, and as marketers it’s up to us to create that.”

“That’s all business is, that’s all marketing is: it’s solving a problem.”

“Only outsource to automation and products that you know will make your life better.”

“Everything that’s happened to me in my life has come through adversity.”
