This particular documentary is all about mindset as well. "The Secret" focusses on the New Thought claim. Which basically states that everything you want or need can be achieved by believing in, repeatedly thinking about and staying positive towards the desired outcome. Both da Vinci and Einstein reputedly used this technique during their lives. Definitely worth trying, right?

Fyre is definitely an example about how you should NOT run your business. That being said, there are lessons to be learned if you pay attention. If you have the product or idea to back it up, some good old bluffing and a kick-ass marketing campaign can help you launch your business or brand to new heights.

Fast-fashion is fun and easy for consumers. Most people have a go-to store or webshop that changes it offer almost every week. A lot of consumers actually buy cheap T-shirts or skirts every single weekt too. But they don't know what the impact of their buying behavior is having on the people making their clothing.

Key lesson here is that it's 2019 and that if you're planning on starting a brand that's not ecological, ethical and durable, you'd better quit while you're ahead.

Why is 'Get Hard', starring Will Ferrel and Kevin Hart in this list? Quite simple. Running a business means tons of hard work and dedication. But a lot of entrepreneurs tend to forget to take a few steps back from time to time. Which is really helpful to get a better perspective on certain challenges. Trust me.

So take a step back and relax for the next 1h 40 mins and have a good laugh. You will feel relaxed and ready to get back at it.
