Need something to watch this weekend?
Here is my list of top 10 movies for entrepreneurs.
Our brain needs to relax and process ideas for you to come up with the best solution to your challenges. I have compiled a list of films that are business related in one way or the other so your entrepreneurial brain can keep on working in the background. We have also compiled a list of documentaries we think are highly relevant to watch. I will send the top 10 documentaries to watch next week.
|10. Boiler Room
The film is based on The Wolf of Wall Streets (Jordan Belfort) cunning way of selling petty stocks to rich people.
|9. Wall Street (1987)
It’s a classic! How far are you willing to go to make money? The film is full of excellent quotes like “Greed is Good.” Enjoy
An action-thriller about a writer who takes an experimental drug that allows him to use 100 percent of his mind.
|7. The Social Network (2010)
This film is a great story of the worlds newest “accidental” billionaire Mark Zuckenberg.

|3.Jerry Maguire (1997)
Jerry Maguire gets fired and starts his own company. We see him go from having everything to having much less and its great how this part of the film shows how some entrepreneurial journeys begin. That is how I got started as an entrepreneur!
|2. The Bucket List (2007)
There is something about beginning with the end in mind. Have you made a list of the things you want to do before you die? Are you living each day as it was your last and dreaming like you would live forever? Maybe after seeing this film you will sit down and write your “bucket list” just like I did?
|1. The Pursuit of Happyness
This rags to riches story is based on a true story and portrays a young fathers struggle to become a stockbroker in San Fransisco. You should watch this film because its a true lesson in never ever giving up and to keep your eyes and motivation in line with the overall goal. Without goals, dreams and a plan you are likely to fail.
