From “Signs” to “Blinds” – Everything Starts With An Idea. Founder Mike Doran And A Friend Brainstormed Designer’s Choice Into Existence To Better Help His Business Networking International (BNI) Chapter Members Succeed.
From "Signs" To "Blinds"
Everything starts with an idea. While sitting in a BNI (Business Networking International) meeting, founder Mike Doran looked at his fellow chapter members, and realized the sign company he was working for was not a good fit for the businesses of the BNI referral partners in the group. He began daydreaming about the potential businesses he could start to help his partners succeed.
Less than a month later his friend Joe suggested a plantation shutters, shades and blinds business. They sat in a Statesboro, Georgia restaurant for hours, brainstorming, and under the roof of that eatery, Designer’s Choice Shutters, LLC (DCS) was born.
You know the old joke: Johnny was in line when God handed out “brains” but thought he said “trains” and missed his. Well, it seems Mike thought God said, “Signs” but maybe it was “Blinds” and he should listen.
Mike’s art school education will now transform colors in a room rather than on a sign, and he will now being using his problem-solving skills to bring design solutions to his customers in their homes, rather than in an office.
