Celebrate the Weekend With 10 New Things to Stream on Netflix and More
Is there anything better than a summer weekend? We think not. If you’re looking for something to help you relax from a high-intensity week prior, may we suggest a movie marathon? Grab a bowl of popcorn, plop on the couch and choose from these 10 shows and movies worth checking out this weekend.
1. Orange Is the New Black: IT’S BACK! IT’S BACK! Season four of possibly-the-most-talked-about Netflix show lands today, and we’re going to spend all weekend zooming through it. The new season looks like it’s gonna be chock full of new prisoners, trouble for Piper and the return of Alex. We’ll talk more on Monday. (Photo via Netflix)
2. Married: We all know married life isn’t easy. But this FX comedy is out to prove that there can be humor in married misery. Watch it for very, very funny appearances from Jenny Slate, hilarious gags and relatable moments — even for singles. (Photo via FX)
FILMS THAT HIT YOUR FUNNY BONE
3. Whiskey Tango Foxtrot: Give us Tina Fey and we’re on board, no questions asked. Luckily, her movie — also starring Margot Robbie, Martin Freeman and Alfred Molina — is full of plenty of the dry humor Fey is famous for. (Photo via Paramount)
4. Ghostbusters: Celebrate the imminent release of the all-woman Ghostbusters with a re-watch of the 1984 original. Do we even have to say it? You know who you’re going to call. (Photo via Columbia Pictures)
TV SHOWS THAT ARE RIPE FOR BINGE-ING
5. Grey’s Anatomy: Find your person and celebrate all 12 seasons of Grey’s Anatomy, now that it’s finally available on Netflix. Relive the drama, unwarranted deaths and Doctor McDreamy-ness with a weekend-long binge. (Photo via ABC)
6. 30 for 30: OJ Made in America: OJ Simpson has been everywhere on TV lately. The newest appearance is in the epic seven-part documentary from ESPN. This all-encompassing series follows Simpson from his childhood to murder trial and is a fascinating, in-depth look at the man behind the media circus. (Photo via ESPN Films)
FLICKS FOR PEEPS WITH MERYL STREEP FEVER
7. The Giver: There are several reasons to watch The Giver. You could watch it because you read the book or maybe because you like dystopian story lines. The reason we’re watching it? Meryl Streep. She (as always) gives a powerful performance as the Chief Elder, along with other members of the star-studded cast: Jeff Bridges, Katie Holmes and Taylor Swift. (Photo via ASIS Productions)
8. Heartburn: Throw it back to old school Meryl Streep when she played Rachel (a fictionalized version of Nora Ephron) opposite Jack Nicholson. The very funny, heart-breaking film about a messy public divorce is equal parts sentimental, fury-driven and hysterical. (Photo via Paramount)
MOVIES THAT PROVE WHAT HAPPENS IN EUROPE…
9. Midnight in Paris: One of our personal favorite movies of all time just landed on Hulu. Owen Wilson stars as a man visiting Paris, who is magically transported back to the 1920s every night at midnight. The movie is charming, surreal and will make you want to get on the next plane to Paris. (Photo via Sony Pictures)
10. Remember: Christopher Plummer (Captain Von Trapp from The Sound of Music) stars as an Auschwitz survivor who goes on a rampage to avenge his family’s deaths. The movie is a powerful thriller and reminder that the pain of the Holocaust still lingers. (Photo via A24)

It can be intimidating to step out on your own and build a business from the ground up. As part of our collaboration with Office Depot, we're talking with Selfmade alum and solopreneur Colette Lawrence, the faith-based motivator and relationship builder behind The M.E.E. Movement, about ways in which women in business can find success.
B + C: How did you know M.E.E. Movement was your business to start?
The M.E.E Movement represents motivation, empowerment, and encouragement for women. It is what represents me. I did not know at first that it was my business to start, but then the thought of monetizing what I loved came to me. It scared me, however. I registered the business in July 2020 and have been slowly building my wings since.
B + C: What's one strategy that's helped you start your business?
Thinking through and researching what the requirements are to start my business, and then asking questions of people who are in the business. Not all advice worked; however, it helped me to figure out what I needed to do and not to do.
B + C: Did you always know life coaching would be your entrepreneurial path?
(Smiles) No, I did not. I 'stumbled" on it. I knew that people were always coming to me for advice and I found that I loved having conversations with them, especially with women, young and old.
B + C: What was your most valuable takeaway from Selfmade?
My most valuable takeaway was the first day of training: Get out of your own way. There were a lot of great moments and important takeaways from every presenter. However, getting out of my own way, pushing past doubts, was for me my most valuable takeaway. Doing something that I had never done before took courage. If I do not focus on what is happening with me mentally then I cannot deliver to my clients successfully.
B + C: What's one piece of advice you would give to female entrepreneurs on the brink of starting?
Get out of your head. You have something to offer. You have what you need to succeed so go ahead and do it.
B + C: How do you stay motivated?
I stay motivated by listening to music and listening to motivational speakers, and sometimes someone will just reach out and talk about the impact that I made in their life. That adds the extra juice or sauce I need to pummel through the day.
B + C: What's your best organizational tip?
Keep a diary and journal. It's the best way for me to keep organized and it also provides a source motivation as I record not only my "losses" but my wins as well.
B + C: Who inspires you in the entrepreneurial space?
Shirley Toliver – She motivates and empowers and makes me always want to show up.
B + C: What has receiving the Office Depot scholarship to Selfmade done to help you start or grow your business?
The scholarship was a blessing in that all the areas that were covered offered valuable information that I needed, from social media to HR. As a new business owner, I needed to know this to increase my own personal awareness in what it takes to run a successful business. The candidness of the presenters made it easy to see myself in their shoes and helped me to realize that I can also get there.
