“Quiet in the house” is what I declare weekly when The Profit begins, I need to hear a pin drop so I can sponge up all that Marcus Lemonis is about to offer me. Never before have I been so obsessed, so on key with what someone is saying. Perhaps it is because the business model that Marcus Lemonis the 100% IN Charge PROFIT touts is what I firmly believe in as well: People and Product, Process as each is embedded in the other. Sitting in bed last night, as I am recovering from massive surgery, I set out to tweet as I do often to my favorite Business person in the world: Marcus Lemonis. Until now, there has been no ROI on those tweets. Things were going to change this evening and well, come along for the ride. Wait… You don’t know who Marcus Lemonis is or The Profit? The Profit is a show where Marcus Lemonis offers chosen businesses that are struggling an education, his expertise and some financial capital in order to ‘try again’ but he is 100% in charge. Businesses are carefully chosen, studied and not every business takes his offer. IMO, Every small business needs a Marcus Lemonis ‘THE PROFIT‘ education before they reopen their doors or even attempt to create anything new. Profit from business education with The Profit and let’s lavishly live life out loud.
Profit from business education with The Profit
Every piece (people, product, process) depends on the other and how better to learn what business is about than to tune in weekly to The Profit and learn. Education is key to consumerism, but education is essential to those undertaking small businesses that can grow if they take into consideration: People, Product and Process, before taking on a business. You don’t just offer up franchises, or buy new products to offer, you need to know your numbers, your potential and your strengths and weaknesses before you trudge forward. You need a Marcus Lemonis to come on in and educate, demonstrate, and reboot the business.
Watching a few episodes of The Profit might open your eyes up to where you are erring, potential financial issues in your business or even how to make a few more dollars a week which is all positive baby steps. You might even see that people who are working for you are in the wrong positions, move them around to where they belong to get the best possible ROI. Marcus will challenge you to THINK and rethink what you are doing so YOU succeed.
What we forget as business owners is the real world, as we are so sucked into what we are doing we lose sight of reality. Just because someone was hired to do a job, does not mean that is their best placement, they might have a stronger skill set than you knew, but being tied into the business you only push on them for that job. You might be tossing money out the door or offering things you can not possibly supply, it ALL Matters and Marcus KNOWS. Imagine if Marcus Lemonis broke down real life to high school students who then transitioned to colleges or opened businesses. People, product and process might just be viewed differently and business might be set up right the first time?
Last night the updates on a few of the businesses Marcus is working with made me happy as progress is happening, albeit he really needs THE PARTNER to get in there and support him quickly so there are no more opening day surprises like at Shuler’s BBQ. Shuler’s BBQ is one place I feel could be a destination, as it would be a place as a Travel Blogger I would SEEK out with my family for that Southern Feeling.
While my favorite episode was not part of the updates this week, here’s a great story for you to look up on line. One of the best in THE PROFIT series IMO was THE PROFIT. Coincidental or not, this is a Pittsburgh Based Business and wow what a mess. The owners just truly were lost and I still am not sure they are getting what they are supposed to do after seeing they had not even visited her son in Chicago as he FRANCHISED. Do you understand how franchising works? Do you understand the potential income? The potential headaches and how BRANDING Fits in? So much to consider.
Have you ever wanted to expand your product line, add in flavors, new pieces, new equipment but wondered what the margins would be? Honestly, watch one show and you will begin understanding business, beyond what school teaches you as this is real life being cleaned up and the education while hard knocks for the owner is the best way to learn because they are in the process with Marcus Lemonis who is 100% IN CHARGE.
Want to understand why NOT to just add in a flavor? Mr. Green Tea understands how and why and seeing the son step up, buckle down and put his business where his mouth was running off to was a great reality check and so amazing. The score in this show was ONE Handle at 16 Handles. Well played, great process and love the end result that is there so far… the potential to grow on is huge, can’t wait for more updates.
So now you know my favorite show and I wanted to provide you with my exciting night recap. There’s nothing like that person that captures life, and remolds it so that it can be as it should be and not as it is. People, Product and Process create the way and Marcus Lemonis will help you profit from business by learning through his expertise on The Profit, so you too can lavishly live life out loud.
