On Wednesday, May 3, CNBC’s TV show The Profit and Comcast Business are going to celebrate the popular TV show The Profit and also the spirit of small business and entrepreneurship in Seattle.
This is an opportunity to network with and hear from entrepreneurs and businesspeople about the challenges, joys, and opportunities of small business.
And if you’re interested, here’s your chance to say why your business should be featured on The Profit.
On the show, Marcus Lemonis, chairman and CEO of Camping World and Good Sam Enterprises, turns businesses around. He has invested nearly $50 million of his own money in the companies featured on the series. Lemonis makes an offer to businesses that’s impossible to refuse, his cash for a piece of the business and a percentage of the profits. And once inside a company, he’ll do almost anything to save the business and make himself a profit, even if it means firing the president, promoting the secretary or doing the work himself.
