#124: 9 Movies Every Entrepreneur Should Watch

November 09, 2014

Inspired by a Facebook post and the upcoming holidays, Travis and I go off on a tangent this week from regular business topics to discuss some movies that were critical in shaping our worldview as entrepreneurs. It’s interesting to see old movies with a different lens now, so let us know in the comments what movies that have been impactful for you.

 

Topics Discussed:

  • Updates from Travis: Responsive design
  • Updates from Terry: Leather laptop sleeve and spinoff brand
  • “There is no spoon.”
  • “You are not your fucking khakis.”
  • “I’m gonna need those TPS reports.”
  • “You forget what you want to remember, and remember what you want to forget.”
  • “Without sense of self no paper, pedigree, or credentials can make you legit.”
  • “To be a gangster was to own the world.”
  • “Hope is a good thing, maybe the best of things, and no good thing ever dies.”
  • “You’re gonna eat lightnin’ and you’re gonna crap thunder!”
  • “There’s a 95 pound Chinese man with a 160 million dollars behind this door.”

  • Hey Terry, The laptop sleeve business sounds interesting. Thought you might like to see a few similar reference points (other than the big guys like TOMS):

    http://www.ethnotekbags.com/
    http://mohinders.com/

    Both are more about the sourcing but are good examples of products with a purpose that people can support.
    Good luck.

    • Thanks Fred, one thing I also realized this week after talking to some previous guests that had KS projects is that the product needs to stand alone on itself not just with a cool story, so need to work on that some more too. Cheers!
