New year, new goals, more movies.
What is it about?
Best friends Mia and Mel (Tiffany Haddish and Rose Byrne) are living their best lives running their own cosmetics company they’ve built from the ground up. Unfortunately, they’re in over their heads financially, and the prospect of a big buyout offer from a notorious titan of the cosmetics industry Claire Luna (Salma Hayek) proves too tempting to pass up, putting Mel and Mia’s lifelong friendship in jeopardy. The beauty business is about to get ugly. LIKE A BOSS also stars Billy Porter, Jennifer Coolidge, Ari Graynor, Natasha Rothwell, Jessica St. Clair and Karan Soni.
What did we learn from it? Well lets all overthink this shit together.
BEST FRIENDS ARE BAD ASS
Having that ride or die in your life is essential. That person that you will do anything for, that you will always be there for, and that person you can share ideas with is a part of life that we all should be blessed with. Having a friend that is everything is a right of passage.
Mia and Mel are BFFs and they aren’t afraid to tell it like it is. We should all be blessed to have a friend that’s going to do the fun thing, the hard thing, and the crazy thing with us.
Also someone who is gonna tell us not to dance when we can’t. That’s friendship.
RUNNING A BUSINESS ISN’T EASY
We all have business ideas and running a business isn’t easy. Even when everyone thinks you are doing great, the truth is behind the scenes it could be more.
When you own a business, you never stop working. EVER. People tell you to take time off, but you can’t. Your business always needs you.
But you have to also pay attention to every detail. And even when you are you may miss something and the next thing you know your business isn’t as successful as you thought it would be.
MAKE SURE TO READ THE SMALL PRINT
Bitches be crazy. You can’t trust anyone.
When you sign a contract – hell when you sign anything – read the fine print. You don’t want anyone to own your ass and you sure as fuck don’t want anyone taking your ideas for their own.
Be sure to read EVERYTHING.
LET PEOPLE HAVE THEIR TRAGIC MOMENT
Bad shit happens to people. Let them have their moment. Let them experience their tragedy. Not everything is about you. Let people have their moment.
SOMETIMES YOU GOTTA PLAY DIRTY
I know, I know – fight fair and shit.
But sometimes in life you can’t fight fair. Sometimes you have to fight dirty. People aren’t always going to be kind. People aren’t always going to be on the up and up. Now I’m not suggesting violence – no. But sometimes a bitch is gonna have to fight dirty and there ain’t nothing wrong with fighting for what is yours.
