The Netflix Password Problem and why you should invest yourself.
Streaming services are dominating our entertainment industry. If you aren’t streaming, you are probably living under a rock. Netflix led the way with this, putting BlockBuster out of business when they first came out. The company changed their policy and doesn't allow users to share their password anymore.
Netflix is only teaching a lesson that needs to be taught to others for a long time. You can’t rely on others for everything. Yes it builds a strong sense of connection which is needed in order for one to grow, but you also have to carry your own weight.
I still have my mother’s Netflix and I’m assuming I’ll be signed out any day now. Honestly, Netflix’s suggestions on movies have gone down over the past few years. Including their selection on Netflix original shows. Either this or I really haven’t felt the need to watch TV like that. Netflix obviously has been doing this to protect their revenue stream and allow them to maximize their profits with every single customer.
But it does teach a valuable lesson. Relying on others means you are subject to their decisions, limitations, and potentially missing out on rooms you should be in. Again, you should rely on the right people and control the environment you decide to place yourself in. But you should be able to carry your own weight.
Yes, you have to go grab your own Netflix account, but also go invest in yourself too. A newsletter is a great start for this. A small investment that makes a big impact. And guess what? It’s cheaper than Netflix.
