I like shows where people are on the grind. Don’t get me wrong. I love to watch a Friends rerun for the twentieth time. The familiarity warms me up like a cup of cocoa.
But then there are shows that fire me up—get me going. Shows that I play in the background as I prepare the house for a day of work. By the time I sit at my desk, I am ready to go.
I identify with what the characters are going through, and enjoy the hijinks as I watch the ups and downs that inevitably accompany being an entrepreneur.
They’re fun. And even more, they’re educational.
