5: Breaking FREE From Corporate America | Channing Preston | Budget Blinds Salem

Be Inspired | Do Good:

Channing Preston is a self-proclaimed non-conformist/misfit that just started his entrepreneurial journey.

His travels through the corporate world, helped him realize that the larger the business, the weaker the connection of his performance to his compensation.  It left him depressed and unmotivated.

Now, as a co-owner of Budget Blinds Salem, Channing is more motivated and rewarded when he does well.  After all, nobody is just going to send him a paycheck.  He’s providing the Roanoke Valley with the best window treatment products at really good prices.  It’s not the sexiest business, but he enjoys providing his clients with stylish alternatives to the dreaded white horizontal wood or mini-blind.
