If you are an aspiring businesswoman or are someone who enjoys learning through the screen, this article is for you. TV shows have had quite the bad reputation. Everyone says Netflix and Chill is a waste of time. However, I disagree, I think as long as you are learning something from it, you aren’t wasting your time. The truth is there are many shows you can watch as an entrepreneur. Shows are the best way to work and not feel like you are working. It’s also important to note that something can be learned at all times. Just look for ways to learn more and knowledge will be provided. Look beyond the storyline and you will find a lot of lessons. There are a lot of shows all entrepreneurs should watch, ready to find out our top 5? Here is how you can Netflix, Chill, and Learn.
Let’s start with one of my all-time favorite shows All entrepreneurs Should Watch
1. Gossip Girl
If you are a millennial you have probably watched Gossip Girl, and then rewatched it. The show just has a way of dragging you in, it has an amazing cast and the most dramatic of storylines. But beyond the drama and high-schoolness of this show are many lessons to be learned. Gossip Girl teaches one to be persistent, confident, and believe in the best of outcomes. Moreover, most of the people on the show are running a business, Chuck Bass, Eleanor Waldorf, Rufus Humphrey, etc. Chuck consistently shows the necessity of taking a risk in businesses. Eleanor demonstrates that sometimes you need to change your thought process and adapt to the new generation. Rufus showcases that sometimes you do need contacts to make it big. Overall, there are many business lessons to learn, and their vocab is fascinating.
Although this show only lasted one season, it is one of the bests in the field of business. Based on the book with the same name, written by Sophia Amoruso, Girlboss is based on a true story with a little-added dramatics. Through the show, the journey of Sophia is shown as she becomes an entrepreneur and starts running the infamous Nasty Gal. Her journey is amazing, you see her hitting rock bottom and then starting up with a great idea. You see her passion towards what she does and willingness to do better. I think all female entrepreneurs will somewhat relate to Sophia and her struggles as well as her success. Sophia is now running the Girlboss brand, which obviously we all love.
Younger isn’t exactly about running a business but shows the most important parts of it. So yes, it is definitely one of the shows entrepreneurs should watch. Focused on Liza, Younger speaks about a woman who is 40 but wants to return to the corporate world after 15 years and fakes being a 26-year-old. This show is not just incredibly funny, it focuses on a lot of very important topics like the LGBTQ+ community and women being judged by their age. The most amazing part of this show is learning about marketing. Especially because it’s set in the current generation, there’s a lot of social media marketing lessons. Overall, it’s amazing to see different women tackle business situations and work professionally. A lot of sisterhood shown in this show, we just gotta love it.
4. The Royals
A show that ended in cliffhangers, I can assure you, you will be mad when at the end of Season 4 you realize there isn’t a season 5. But don’t let this stop you from watching this funny, dramatic, and amusing show. The Royals is a fictional show which is a parody of the royal life of Britain. Even though there aren’t any “entrepreneurs” except maybe Princess Eleanor, this show demonstrates a good lot about branding. It shows the necessity to have contact, create a network, the importance of keeping composure and they also have a lot on PR and social media marketing. Honestly, a great show if you want to learn a little more about branding, and definitely one of the shows all entrepreneurs should watch.
5. The Bold Type
If you are looking for a show that tackles important issues of the current generation and is based in the corporate world, then The Bold Type is for you. Created and inspired by the former editor-in-chief of Cosmopolitan, The Bold Type is a show about 3 girls figuring out their lives and careers. This is yet another show that teaches a lot about social media marketing. Kat, the social media head in the show, is also an inspiration for anyone trying to get a promotion. The show overall shows the different needs of businesses to transform, new investors coming in, opening opportunities to millennials, and obviously the importance of networking and events. If there is one show I emphasize on, it is this one. This is one of the shows all entrepreneurs should watch.
Anyway beauties, this is it for now. If you know any other shows all entrepreneurs should watch don’t forget to let us know in the comments below. Also, here is a post that will make you want to watch Younger even more.
