When working on a new business idea, there’s a lot to be done and we know it’s hard to pull yourself away. But it’s important to give yourself a break every now and again to recharge otherwise you risk burning out.
Our best advice for these times of rest is a good documentary.. Whilst technically ‘off the clock’ you’ll still gain a lot of great information to help you on your journey, but you can switch off for a while and let someone else do all the thinking – win win!
To help, here are our top picks of documentaries for any entrepreneur…
