I would like to share with you a list of films I watched and showed me that persisting in a dream and putting it into practice can be difficult but that in the end it can bring incredible results. This is a good list for those times when you are thinking about giving up and compare yourself to some big name saying you are not going to get there.

Believe me: they've been through this too!

So without further ado let's start:

After an investment failed by capitalist Peter Gregory (Christopher Evan Welch), Richard seems destined to remain in his mediocre job at the company, founded by megalomaniac Gavin Belson (Matt Ross). When Mônica (Amanda Crew), Gregory's chief operating officer, and Jared (Zach Woods), executive, realize the value of the algorithm created by Richard, a bidding dispute arises between Belson and Gregory, and Richard is in the middle.
