Top 10 Movies For Entrepreneurs

Top 10 Movies For Entrepreneurs
For detailed notes and links to everything mentioned in this video, visit

If you’d ask my friends to go and watch movies with me, they’d tell you one thing. Sixty percent of the time, I walk out of the movie. I literally get up and walk out of the movie. I don’t know anyone that walks out of movies more than I do, because I don’t like to waste my time watching a movie without a point to it, and you can’t keep my attention. To me, watching a movie is like reading a book for two hours. Give me a message! Move me! Tap into my emotions! I want to FEEL it.

The movies listed below are ones I would never walk out on. They are worth your time, and if you’re an entrepreneur, each of them has a message for you.

#10: The Social Network — 1:42

#9: House of Cards 3:26

#8: GoodFellas – 5:31

#7: The Pursuit of Happyness – 6:54

    Finding Dora! I know don’t judge me lol! She has a goal to find her parents in a huge ocean where there is sharks and all kind of animals that can eat you so she was risking her life. She didn’t use her handicap as an excuse but instead improvise and found out her way to help her remember things. We can do the same by turning our weaknesses into strengths.

    Lol, I’ve seen The Godfather I, II, & III (I watch at least one of the movies at least once a year). Seen Rocky also, and The Social Network, Goodfellas, and House of Cards (which is like my 2nd favorite show, right behind Game of Thrones which should be on this list. Tyrion Lannister, Petyr Baelish, Lord Varys. it has some stand up entrepreneurial characters

    I first saw The Godfather (I, II, & III) when I was in 5th Grade and it changed my entire mindset. I stopped being a child at that point in my life and began work towards one goal, building a legitimate business empire that is profitable and adds value and brings about socio-economic development for my country (Nigeria). Would love to discuss my progress so far with you if you want.
    If The Godfather taught me anything, it’s that crime is a small man’s game, you want to be a top dog, you have to be legitimate. I mean people think the third movie is the worst, but they do not understand Michael Corleone reached god-level in society (sadly he lost Mary). Anyway, I will get the other movies I haven’t seen. Great list btw. I suggest you check out Game of Thrones also.

    Nice vid. My personal favorite of all time is the Rocky series I just love all the Rocky movies. Also with knowing the background about Sly Stalone how he lived when he wrote the first script makes it even more awesome for me. One movie I want suggest wasn’t out when you recorded your vid. But I highly recommend watching the “The Founder” It’s about Ray Kroc and how he turned MC Donalds from a small Diner into a million Dollar company. It’s nice to watch and I think every entrepreneur or those who want to become one can learn something from it.
