Lemonade the Movie: A Free, Must-Watch Documentary To Inspire You.

If you haven’t already seen, or possibly haven’t even heard of, Lemonade the Movie, you need to go watch it ASAP. I watched it online last week for free and was terrifically inspired by the 35 minute film. It is about what people who were once paid to be creative for a living do when they’re laid off – it was great. Way too often I hear people complain about the fact that they hate their job or their boss, yet they stay in the very place that drives them crazy for years and years. Well, most of the people featured in this documentary got laid off from jobs they actually liked…and used it as a catalyst to discover things they enjoy even more. It’s about 16 advertising professionals who lost their jobs and found their calling, encouraging people to listen to that little voice inside their head that asks, “What if?”. This same little voice plagued me for years in the corporate world before I finally had enough and just said “enough” – and walked out the door without a backup plan. And I haven’t looked back since. Sure, sometimes things are tight and sometimes they are going really well…but I work for myself, doing something I enjoy, and there is still food on my table and a roof over my head. What more could a person ask for? Well, the people in this film are doing practical things that they love and making it work. It should be a “must-see” for everyone as a reminder that you don’t have to stay in a job you hate – you have other options if you start brainstorming a bit. Take a look at the trailer for the film:

I absolutely love hearing stories of people doing something different with their life than they were “used” to doing…and succeeding. So this was a great reminder that no matter what happens in life, you DO have other choices. When life gives you lemons, make lemonade. And even if you like the lemons you have, what else could you be doing that may be even better? Watch Lemonade the Movie over at Hulu.com and be inspired by these stories.

    Not sure what you are clicking, but the link that says “Watch Lemonade the Movie over at Hulu.com” goes directly to the entire film.

  5. […] Lemonade: A Free, Must-Watch Documentary to Inspire You [via My Two Dollars and Hulu] ““ Ever been laid off? These people have. Instead of letting it crush them, they took some chances ““ and with the support of their families, friends, and children that depended on them, they built lives worth living. It’s funny, it’s entertaining, and it’s absolutely gripping. I watched it on my break at the office one night and I immediately knew I’d be sharing it here. Hit the link to watch the trailer and then follow through to Hulu to watch the full 40ish-minute documentary. It’s well worth your time. […]

    really well made movie but i couldn’t get beyond the fact that none of the people profiled seem to be making any money in their new vocations.
