Would you watch a show what makes light of raising funds to start your business as a broke, young woman in an expensive city? CBS thought you would, which is why you can find the new comedy 2 Broke Girls on every Monday night. YFE admittedy had no idea what this show was about until a post on The Grindstone highlighted a CBS story of a real life “broke girl.”
The show follows “two young women waitressing at a greasy spoon diner who strike up an unlikely friendship in the hopes of launching a successful business – if only they can raise the cash.” Check out the contrast between the real deal and the fictional characters in this short video of a woman who transitioned out of being a waitress to growing her cupcake business out of Brooklyn.
Check out this clip from the show where the broke girls Max and Caroline attend a cupcake baking class to hone in on their skills. Do you think the cattiness of the two businesses interacting is true to life, or in your experience have your competitors been more willing to help and collaborate on projects with you?
