Max: You took money from a homeless man?
Caroline: I prefer to think of Bob near the bridge as our first investor. -2 Broke Girls
Tonight is the season 2 premiere of 2 Broke Girls on CBS. The hit show starring Kat Dennings and Beth Behrs as two waitresses/entrepreneurs from very different sides of the tracks was last season’s sleeper hit and now it is anchoring the Monday night lineup. We left off watching these two budding entrepreneurs pitching their cupcake business to Martha Stewart….in a bathroom. Cupcakes aren’t the most original idea, but last season provided a ton of business lessons any entrepreneur would appreciate it.
At the end of every episode a dollar total is shown as the girls save for their dream, which requires a startup fund of $250,000. Sometimes their total goes up (and sometimes down) by a few hundred bucks or so each episode. The last we saw it was at $927. Even with the girls working various jobs, to make that kind of money we are looking at at least 10 seasons. ”I think we will see a jump (in the total),” star Kat Dennings said to the Toronto Sun. ”There has to be a jump. Something has to happen with that, whether it’s this season, or four years from now, knock on wood. But something has to happen because they’re driven.”
With so many women starting their own companies right now we thought it would be fun to look at lessons we can learn from these two girls, even though they are broke.
