Queue Up These 5 Shows Immediately When You Finish Stranger Things
YOU GUYS. PLEASE SAY YOU BINGED THROUGH STRANGER THINGS AS QUICKLY AS WE DID. We started it for Winona Ryder and stayed when things started getting really, really creepy. We promise no spoilers here, but if you watched all the episodes in one fell swoop and are looking for something to fill the show void, we’ve got five more shows that are just as spooky, nostalgic and full of plot twists. See you on the other side.
We’re not saying that you should be ashamed of yourself if you watched all of Stranger Things without seeing Twin Peaks, but we’re not saying that you shouldn’t hide that fact from everybody you know and watch both seasons of the cult classic immediately. It’s got all of the stuff Stranger Things thrived on: creepy vibes, hidden secrets and a town that’s much weirder than it seems on first glance. You can stream it from Netflix, Hulu and Amazon.

IF YOU LIKE TRIBUTE SHOWS, WATCH AMAZING STORIES
One of the best things about Stranger Things were the homages it consistently paid to the shows that came before it. Stephen Spielberg did a similar-styled show for NBC in the ’80s that paid tribute to the sci-fi and horror genres. Watch it for your daily dose of creepy-crawlies, now on NBC. (Photo via NBC)
IF YOU LIKE POTENTIAL ALIEN MONSTERS, WATCH OUTER LIMITS
That terrifying, faceless creature that nobody seems to know what it is has been widely rumored to be an alien. If you’re a fan of all things extraterrestrial, binge through The Outer Limits — an old-school exploration of what happens when creatures from beyond land on Earth. Watch it now from Hulu and Amazon.

IF YOU LIKE TOWN DRAMAS, WATCH WAYWARD PINES
When two former FBI agents go missing, a secret service agent sets out to find them in the small Idaho town. (Sound familiar?) It’s a character-driven, creepy drama with plenty of twists, secrets and more questions than answers. You can stream it now from Hulu and Amazon. (Photo via Fox)
IF YOU LIKE CREEPY COMMUNITY SECRETS, WATCH CARNIVALE
The townspeople of Stranger Things are adept at covering things up. Just pretend the town is a traveling carnival and you’ll get the vibes of the eerie Carnivale. You can watch both seasons now from HBO and Amazon. (Photo via HBO)

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.
