Outside of sports I don’t watch much TV. I’m still bitter about my near fanatical devotion to ABC’s Lost (I tuned in every. single. week. For that finale? Don’t get me started…)
But I am a big fan of CNBC’s “The Profit”. For those of you who haven’t seen it – The Profit is a show about Marcus Lemonis – an entrepreneur who steps in to save small businesses that are about to go under and turns them around, firstly by investing money in the company (that solves some of the short term problems) and becoming a partner, and secondly by focusing on everything within the business that he can improve. Typically these businesses need more than just financial help.
