Greetings C.E.O. Entourage,
If you are reading this post, it is obvious to us that you are ready to surround your life with Entrepreneurship! Although as of late, TV has been flooded with Reality TV Shows, that are great if you need a laugh and release from the intensity of handling your business, we want to show you that TV can be both entertaining and helpful to your destiny as an entrepreneur. These shows will inspire you, teach you great lessons, and give you insight as you can probably most definitely relate to their situations.
As we get further and further into the school semester, we will discuss some of these shows and episodes as a group, to gain increased perspective.
