Where am I?
In StartupTalky you can ask and answer questions and share your experience with others!
Rightly explained below by Himani. I would like to add a few names in the list, that are not exactly entrepreneurial, but still gives us hopes and confidence.
- Erin Brockovich: This movie is based on Hinkley disaster, which is the case of biggest lawsuit in law history. It is not directly related to entrepreneurship. (There is a misconception that entrepreneurship means business or startup only). You can be an entrepreneur in a job also.
In this movie, Erin is broke as hell, as she has 3 children to take care of, without husband or any financial support. But, she doesn't loose her shit and continues to find job, get the job and put all her sweat, blood, mind, days and nights, to understand the case. She doesn't every possible thing to win justice for affected people of Hinkley.
This movie teaches us 2 things:
- If you are confident about yourself, you can always right up, no matter how hard you hit the rock bottom. Real winners are those who rise from the scratch.
- You should have a purpose behind everything. Purpose becomes your motivation. In this movie, Erin had 2 purposes -
- To earn bread and butter for her family and raise healthy and educated children.
- To bring justice to the people of Hinkley, who had already lost their loved ones due to disaster.
- Thank you for smoking: This movie will teach you selling skills. You can learn to sell any product by getting an inspiration from this movie, which is based on saving ciggerate industry, by proving why it shouldn't be stopped.
There are many more movies, that you can watch. If you come across any movie on entrepreneurship that is not listed in this or Himani's answer, please comment here. I would like to expand my list and learn more.
