The heart of Episode 102, titled Evergreen, is all about struggles. There are struggles over Pop's death, land and family business. Over money. Over relationships. And that's just the tip of the iceberg. Struggle, of course, can be a large part of business and entrepreneurship as well. Here are the lessons I took from this episode:
Lesson #1: Making Money Ain't Everything.
Lesson #2: Broke? Entrepreneurship Can Fix It.
Lesson #3: Don't Let Your Small Business Make You Small Minded.
Lesson #4: Find the Right Place.
Lesson #5: Don't Tell an Entrepreneur What to Do.
I've included my twitter thoughts for the #PopCultureClass lessons from Season 1, Episode 102 of Queen Sugar below. You can also check them out on Storify.
My favorite lesson is the first one - "making money ain't everything." It reminds me of a time when I was making a lot of money but every unhappy in what I was doing. The day that I quit that particular job, I was the happiest (and most poor) I had ever been as a working professional.
