The Godfather (movie)

Why watch it? For a moment, forget the fact that this is a movie about organized crime. Instead, learn how Michael Corleone (Al Pacino) took a small family business and transformed it into one of the most powerful and influential families in the country. The Godfather perfectly illustrates what it take to get the top, and how to remain there.

Beer Wars (movie)

Why watch it? It’s challenging to succeed when jumping into an established market. However, educating your audience on how much better your product is than the competition is a valuable lesson we learned from Beer Wars.
