If you’ve not see JOY yet, you may want to see it before reading this as there are more than a couple of spoilers here.
It’s New Year’s Day and I just got in from seeing the matinee of JOY with my family. As an entrepreneur who has spent much of the last week thinking about how 2016 is going to look for our personal lives and our business, this movie inspired me in so many ways. The movie was inspired by the life of Joy Mangano, inventor of the “miracle” mop. Her life story is a true rags to riches story of a woman who had to hit rock bottom before having success that most will only dream of.
The movie is more than inspiring however. There are quite a few lessons to be learned, and this article serves as a way to further engrain those lessons into my own mind as much as it does as a way that I hope I can encourage other entrepreneurs.
