I have just finished watching the 3 episodes of 2 Broke Girls and I have to say I like the way the two girls portray their roles.
Kat Dennings who play Max (picture above) is, I think, the brave one (friendship status). Since she has been fending for herself for a while, she manages to defend both her and Caroline with all the bad stuff coming their way. You can consider it as a ‘elder sister’ type. The only thing about Max is that she is not confident about her skill – which is making ‘fabulous’ cupcakes!
Beth Behrs (picture above) on the other hand is the business PR / lead for their cupcake venture. Since she has graduated from a business degree, she had been the one coming up with ideas on how they can sell their cupcakes and make it mainstream.
The show is funny. I like the way Max would make a comment about people and attack with her sarcasm. It’s witty. As for Caroline, her looks give out that she might be dumb but actually she is not . She is full of ideas and is very determined that her plans / ideas can be achieved – one step at a time.
In one of the episodes, Caroline mentioned about having a vision board. I think I need to have one too so that I can see (visually) what do I or we want to achieve. Seeing it makes you more determined that you can achieve it.
They have made baby steps on how they can establish the business – one of them is printing out business cards with Max as the baker / owner of course.
For me, I have ‘kind of’ put myself out there by logging in to websites that assist freelance writers in securing a job. I am thankful that for the past few years that I have signed up, I have had good returns from these websites. I hope that when we do settle in the Philippines for good, I will still be able to continue with this so that I do not have to go back to the workforce – I can earn money while being with my family as well.
Of course, I cannot just depend on my online writing biz (If I plan to do it full-time), I also need to find another one… for both me and my husband. We are still thinking about different business ventures that we can get our hands on and hopefully, by the time we are all packed up, the business will materialise.
I am confident that we will be able to find one. The Philippines has a big heart for small-time entrepreneurs. I know we will be able to find something that fits us. It is better to do or have a business that is close to your heart right? Rather than taking in a business that you only love halfheartedly.
Funny that I get to learn about business more by watching this TV show. I hope they are getting good reviews from the management so that they can still have probably 2-3 seasons more? *fingers crossed*
