Movies that will bring out the Entrepreneur in You during Quarantine

by | May 4, 2020

If you are finding it hard to spend this quarantine, then one of the many ways to make it productive can be an idea of watching Movies.

The primary purpose of movies is, of course, to entertain. While films are predominately created for entertainment purposes, it would be a mistake to reject their ‘world-changing’ potential. Movies can have an impact far more significant than first imagined.

Movies can be compelling. Movies companies put a lot of effort and money to make sure that the viewers enjoy the movie the best. They can influence an audience to a great extent. Why wouldn’t so? People started to adopt black cats from shelters after the premiere of the movie Black Panther. In some shelters, there were no black cats left at all. Before, people were less interested in animals with such a color because of different superstitions. You have probably heard that a black cat might bring you bad luck if it crosses your path. Moreover, black cats were considered to be the incarnation of the devil and faithful servants of witches.

But films don’t always bring positive change in the mentality of people. So you should know if the movie you are watching bringing good inside you or the opposite.

Good movies help you to know the world through multiple perspectives. They will inspire you to become a better version of yourself. Though it takes a few hours to watch a movie, it can have a life-changing impact on you, consciously or unconsciously. 

If you aim to own a business or run a company, the movies below will help you to develop your mindset towards entrepreneurship. 

1.The Wolf of Wall Street:

This movie isn’t a generic biopic of prominent, respectable person but is based on a true story on a stockbroker named Jordan Belfort. Its a rollercoaster ride that takes Jordan from nobody to a rich man. He is smart, bold, risk-taking, badass, has a chill-out attitude, has practical leadership skills which made a synergistic effect over a team of two hundred and fifty. The movie also shows that some incidents or people in our life might show us a completely new different direction which may be positive or negative like in the cinema Mathew guided Belfort how to earn more money, how to deal with the customers. This leaded a significant change in Belfort’s personality.

2. Guru

Either you love Bollywood, or you don’t like the ‘drama-song-action’ of Bollywood movies, this movie is a must to watch.

The movie is a brilliant reflection of the life of the man who started the Reliance empire, Dhirubhai Ambani. Although the makers of the never openly claimed that the cinematic venture was a Dhirubhai’s story, the audience and critics who saw the film could scrutinize Dhirubhai Ambani’s rise being portrayed on the silver screen. Mani Ratnam’s directorial ingenuity makes the movie appealing, especially if you’re an innovative soul seeking to start your venture. You will get some insight into what entrepreneurship meant in the 1950s! It is the best Bollywood movie on business that you should watch.

3.The Social Network

Let me tell you a fact: Facebook is just 16 years old, much younger than many of us. Mark Zuckerberg, the 33-year-old founder and CEO of Facebook, has a net worth of $74 billion and counting. He’s the fifth-richest person in the world, according to Bloomberg’s Billionaires Index. So, you should definitely check this movie to observe the journey of Facebook.

It was no surprise that The Social Network was a blockbuster when it was released in 2010. After all, everyone wanted to see how Mark Zuckerberg became transformed from a Harvard student to launching the most popular social media network in the world.
Why watch it? Never mind if this was overdramatized. The film gives viewers a better understanding of how to make a startup succeed by exhibiting such qualities as being flexible and resilient. Every time you watch this movie, it will motivate you to be a better entrepreneur.

4. Becoming Warren Buffett

With a net worth of over $60 billion, Warren Buffett is considered the most successful entrepreneur. An enormous amount of invaluable knowledge is offered up in Becoming Warren Buffett, from which we can extract essential life lessons from the humble billionaire, his family, and his peers.

The legendary investor still lives in a modest home in Omaha and drives himself to the office every morning to manage Berkshire Hathaway. This documentary chronicles Buffett’s evolution into one of the wealthiest and most respected men in the world. The film takes us on a journey in which we see how the legendary investor started as an ambitious, numbers-obsessed boy from Nebraska and ended up becoming one of the richest and most respected men in the world.

5. The Founder

In this retelling of the founding father of McDonald’s, Ray Kroc is a businessman who cashes in on a restaurant with a new style of food delivery—hamburgers made in 30 seconds, not 30 minutes. Kroc is relentless in his pursuit of building the world’s greatest fast food empire, and his path to greatness doesn’t come without troubles. With endless ideas and determination, Kroc cements the McDonald’s name in history as one of the most fabulous franchise restaurants of all time.

Why it’s one of the best entrepreneur movies: Building an empire isn’t easy—especially when you’re challenging the status quo. “The Founder” explores the side of the business that requires persistence unknown to many, but will surely inspire entrepreneurs that are determined to create “the next big thing.”
