Just watched this, and I think it’s one of the best documentaries I’ve ever seen.
It’s abut a dutch designer who wants to create a mobile phone that is created using fair labour and sustainable environmental practices.
For me, one of the most important parts was when the main guy who set up and ran this company, basically hit a wall and had to seek medical help.
This is actually very common for CEOs in startup organisations, but we hardly hear anything about it. The loneliness and stress you have when you are driving a business, doing everything from top to bottom is really really underappreciated. Some people can do it, but many can’t.
You basically just burn out. And I’m saying this because of course, I’ve experienced this myself.
It was also interesting to hear how when you create a business, it becomes something you can’t stop. You have customers who want products and services, you have contracts with employees and suppliers and all sorts of others, that you can’t just end. You can’t just stand up one day, say “I don’t want to do this anymore” and walk out.
Anyway, it’s interesting, enjoy.
