I am not an entrepreneur, nor do I have the desire of being one; however, I find the show to be very interesting from a creative and human interest perspective.
Listening to season one while I was working on perfecting my own pashion and craft made me inspired. To hear about those who have been successful in their field and not to hear just the positives but to hear what they did when times got hard and discouraging. Loved how it isn't just some guy talking, they inject music and comments that help you get the big picture of the story that is being told. I can't wait to hear more! It shows that if you are passionate about your craft or your skill to keep going and you never know where it will lead!
