Marcus Lemonis: "I'm Shocked by the Fact 
They Don't Know the Numbers'
Inc. Magazine

Many American entrepreneurs have been watching Marcus Lemonis, "The PROFIT" on CNBC these past three years. During this TRUE reality show, Marcus invests in small and lower middle market businesses, and proceeds to turn them around, and helps drive growth.

Over these three years, Marcus repeats several key phrases- "People Process Product", "I am 100% in charge" and of course, our favorite- "You've GOT to know your numbers!"

Marcus presented twice during the Inc. 5000 Conference; Shelly and Brett were able to get a conversation with him after a session. They discussed kids, Omaha and where to find great off the rack sport coats!
