Have you ever heard of a show called, “The Profit?” This is my new addiction. Marcus Lemonis, a billionaire goes to business, most, which are million dollars companies, that are failing. First off, you wonder how can a company making millions be failing? Some of these companies would be in that group of not making enough to pay benefits for the employees, if you saw the show, you would understand. Some of the employees were working unpaid for a couple of weeks when the employer comes up short in the paying of general expenses. Most of the time it seems like sloppy business practices, and control is a big issue he is always dealing with. It is going back to my thing about how no one can do everything. I can raise my hand to all of it. However, I am learning from Marcus as he helps these million dollars companies get back on track. Of course, a few refuse to give up the control, and he has to walk away.
What I learned yesterday was to focus on one thing. A person who I have been working with me said the same thing, I did not listen, so now I am.
The word of the day is FOCUS. A main purpose or interest; direction, a clear vision.
The Profit is a reality show on CNBC. Marcus Lemonis offers to help struggling business with capital.
