Gretchen Hansen on The Mentor Files Podcast with Monica Royer

When Gretchen Hansen spotted two pink chairs in the back of a vintage shop, she immediately had that “I found it” feeling. But when she couldn't find a way to make them work in her space, she enlisted the help of her friend, an interior decorator, by sending her a few quick pictures. Her friend had the perfect solution to make them fit in the space. Gretchen immediately thought: what if I was able to bring this amazing remote decorating experience to everybody?
