In this episode, we take a step away from real estate investing to talk about something a little different, furniture. This episode covers the idea of furniture services, supply chain dynamics, and changing consumer tastes and preferences.

Our guest is Sam Selby, Director of Business Development at Fernish. Fernish is a premium furniture service that offers monthly payment options. But this isn't your parents' rent-to-own, it's part of the larger trend of the sharing economy.
