Aspiring entrepreneurs should definitely have a go at this series for it provides an insightful glimpse of the challenges that exist in the realm of start-ups. The show begins with an ambitious Dal-mi aspiring to be the next Steve Jobs. She mistakes Do-san, the introverted owner of a failing company, as her first love despite Do-san having no clue who she is. Despite this, he capitalises on this opportunity to begin a startup with her.
This in itself is an invaluable lesson — capitalise on any given opportunity, as Do-san has done so, albeit slightly unethically. He spotted how Dal-mi’s drive could propel his own ambitions and desires and utilised it under the guise of a former lover. He best exemplifies the phrase ‘fake it until you make it’, working his way through the many obstacles with Dal-mi.
Dal-mi herself is also an inspiration for struggling entrepreneurs, for despite lacking a formal college education, she exudes confidence and grace in her interactions and expressions. Her belief in her own capabilities drives her pursuit of success and courage to achieve.
- Make the best of any given situation. There are always opportunities to be found
- Believe in yourself. It may sound cliche but self-confidence will give you the push that you need to succeed
