    Love this series, and LOVE this business! I’m dying to know – what wallpaper did she use in her office, and are those droopy tulip arrangements real or faux?

  2. Liz {What Dress Code?}

    Such an inspiring interview — Martha really took what she wanted to do and forced it to be her reality, and you can tell all the hard work along the way paid off!

    Mandy is seriously one of the coolest, nicest, most amazing-est people EVER! Great interview!

    Her office is beautiful! I love how honest she was as well. My favorites: “I’ve learned (and am still learning) to be very selective with who I associate myself with.” and “Comparison is the thief of all joy.”

  5. Ame

    AMAZING. I am fairly newish to “Waiting on Martha” but holy smokes was this a fantastic Behind the Biz. And her office? SO PINNABLE.

  6. Shell B Cheri

    What a GREAT interview. I have been feeling slightly overwhelmed & discouraged about my own path this week & I needed to read this. LOVE THIS: Comparison is the thief of all joy. My god, there has never been a truer statement.

    GREAT interview! Her story is such an inspiration and her style is incredible!

  8. Lili

    she is amazing, to say the least!

    Maybe my favorite Behind the Biz so far! Mandy seems hardworking, humble, and I always appreciate it when people admit that it’s not a piece of cake to do what they do (helps w/ not comparing yourself to others too harshly).

    I particularly liked her section on organization, taking Monday as a preparation day (David Kadavy calls this Prefrontal Monday) and mono-tasking.

    1. Erin @ CO.IN Design

      I have to agree! Reading “That it was going to be the hardest thing I’ve ever done. I’ve never worked so hard or lost so much sleep as I have this last year. That being said, it’s also the most rewarding.” was like a giant head-nod “YES!”. The first year of business is incredibly difficult but there is no reward as sweet as making it through and feeling the confidence of all the lessons learned as you forge ahead.

      Great interview!

  10. Elaine

    Wonderful advice and I’m completely, utterly, absolutely, in love w/ her office!

  11. FripperyVintage

    Great interview love how frank she is! I agree about how competitive women are, I think we should try to help and inspire each other and their is room for everyone!

  12. Allyson Conklin

    This couldn’t live up to Mandy’s life mantra of “living a beautiful everyday” any more! Thanks to Meg for spotlighting Waiting On Martha. You look gorg, Mandy! xo

    Woooow. Love the black furniture over the traditional white. Goes so well with everything- the drooping pink tulips, the lucite desk chair, that crazy (Jonathan Adler?) white multi-headed piece. Coveting everything.

    Love this post! So interesting to hear what Mandy has been through with launching her business – and so similar to a lot of what I have been through. I’m totally with her on there’s enough business to go around and we need to support one another.

    I hope this next year brings even more success!
