Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: Not yet rated
Kids say: Not yet rated

This is a sneakily good reality show that teens will enjoy; there's enough drama inherent in the entrepreneurs' journeys that the ups and downs don't seem manufactured by reality show producers. By and large, everyone on Born for Business is kind-hearted and even keeled. Unlike shows like Shark Tank which only offer a snapshot into running a business, the show follows the CEOs over a longer period of time and gives a more complete picture of what it's really like. The four main characters talk very openly about their experience with disability, but it's only part of their story. They are shown to be full humans with flaws and virtues, not just people with disabilities. Teens who don't know anyone with these four disabilities will likely learn about how they can affect a person, but also what is possible to achieve while having these disabilities.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
