Today I’m telling you a funny story about a whole couch saga! BUT, there are actually several business lessons that came from an experience I had buying a couch off Facebook marketplace. I shared about it on Instagram and people were so invested that I decided to bring it to you as a podcast episode! I hope you enjoy this wild story and learn how not to do business!
