It doesn’t matter whether you’re starting to go back to an office or not, right now, you’re probably watching a lot more streaming programming.

We’ve curated a shortlist of 4 new(ish) shows you can stream to your TV or computer that focus on inspiring entrepreneurial stories, motivational messages, and uplifting content that every entrepreneur should add to their watch list now.
Self Made: Inspired by the Life of Madam C.J. Walker
Netflix’s limited series, ‘Self Made’, inspired by the story of Madam C.J. Walker is a doozy, plus there’s a fun bit of drama too. In just four episodes, you’ll be introduced to the world’s first black millionaire, and you’ll walk away moved. ‘Self Made’ tells a beautiful story of how Walker overcame gender bias, racial disparities, business rivalries, low self-esteem, heartbreak, and disappointments to bring her vision into reality during tough times.
Margaret Atwood: A Word After A Word After A Word is Power
This documentary on Hulu shows Margaret Atwood, famed author of ‘The Handmaid’s Tale’, using the power of storytelling to highlight how powerful words truly are. Her attention to detail and a drive to be a great writer instead of a famous one have put her on the map. You too can learn from her skills and her story in ‘Margaret Atwood’. You’ll definitely take away a new perspective on storytelling.
