Marcus Lemonis (‘The Profit’) Credits Family For Lifelong Work Ethic

The Profit returns tonight (CNBC, 10 pm et/pt), as Marcus Lemonis brings his business and collaborative savvy to struggling companies. Whether it’s as the CEO of Camping World or rescuing Crumbs Bake Shop out of bankruptcy, Lemonis is a very busy and determined individual.

“Crumbs is a big risk for me,” said Lemonis during an interview at the NBC Television Critics Association Press tour in July. “But if I’m right, then some of the companies that were on our show have a true, legitimate chance to be millionaires. If it works. That’s a gamble that I feel I have to take.”

Personal drive, along with a consistent work ethic are one of the many factors on one’s pathway to success. Riches and luxuries were handed to Lemonis on a silver platter, but instead he learned how to earn his keep thanks to common sense parenting.

In the video below, Marcus Lemons how his work ethic was positively shaped by his family:
