Is there such a thing as TV shows for entrepreneurs? As a busy entrepreneur, you probably don’t have a Friends marathon as a priority (no hate intended, we love Friends). Truth is between work, family, trying to have a social life and maybe even making it to the gym, time is limited for Netflix, HBO, Amazon Prime or whatever it is that you use to watch your favorite series.
