Hi Mr. Marcus Lemonis,

I appreciate you have an extremely busy schedule.I’m in the process of pre-launching a series of automotive products. Just to make myself clear this is a start-up…I have plans to create a National brand, then take it International. I’m in the process of build a new brand, new websites, etc.

I have watched your program the Profit and I absolutely agree with your comments of trust and honesty. Having said that I would appreciate the opportunity to have a conversation with you.

I welcome your communication anytime.

Mr. Lemonis, I have a successful antique and gold and silver store in N.J.. my reason for contacting you is this. Yesterday, I had a very interesting conversation with one of my clients. While we wre talking, he tells me that his property sits on a 50 million gallons of spring water and do I have any ideas. My answer was yes, After doing some research , I walked away realizing there’s a global water shortage, and there seems to be serious and growing concerns that in the next 5 or 6 years there could be a serious shortage.

Dear Mr. Lemonis,
I am writing in for my daughter who could use help with her business. She is an artist who paints on glass such as mugs, wine glass, plates, anything on glass. She has her own designs or can make whatever a person would like. She is very talented at what she does but needs help marketing. If this can be done she woulds like information on her venture.

Be well and thank you

Dear Mr. Lemonis, I started my business in 11-2012. We manufacture Gourmet Jerky Treats for pets. All work is done by myself and 2 partners in my home. Currently we are using Cabelas commercial dehydrators, but our production is limited by space and size of dehydrators, and they only reach 158 degrees F. Our dehydration times go up to 30+ hours. Then we need to bake in the oven at a higher temp to make sure there is no bacterial growth. We are at a catch 22. Expand to another facility, invest in industrial deydrators, hire employees (which we don’t… Read more »

Mr. Lemonis, congratulations on a great show. I have an idea for a break away show that capitalizes on existing companies that could be expanded upon by opening in other markets or franchising. They don’t need capital to survive or grow, they just need to see their potential. I have 2 such companies for you to look at and they are both extremely successful, they just need to see that you can provide the guidance. I promise you, no, challenge you to just look at this idea and 2 companies to make a decision. This is a whole other market… Read more »

Dear Mr. Lemonis, In 1997, I designed, with a copyright, 3-D die-cut horse greeting cards for a fundraiser. Additional grazing rights were needed for a herd of half-starved mustangs that have roots from The Civil War. Six-packs of cards were successfully sold to my local Hallmark Store, galleries, other retail outlets, and the mustangs are doing very well to this day. A college counselor has encouraged me to start selling these cards again to personally make a profit. Although greeting cards are not as popular, because of email, my unique cards still sit on mantels with photos that fit inside.… Read more »

Mr. Lemonis

I’m the owner of a carpet cleaning company, for over 27 years. Five (5) years ago I had an idea for a new way of cleaning and have a patent on this product. I also have a large contract to install my new way of cleaning across the country. My way of cleaning also KILLS GERMS ON ANY Surface.
I’m in need of the funds to start installing the product. I can explain it in person of by phone. Oh and this has never been done before.

Thank You
Jaime Martinez

I have an incredible Idea for an invetion but with no money its just an idea. I WOULD LIKE TO SUCCEED IN A BUSINESS INSTEAD OF GETTING IN AND FIXING IT LATER. My invention has unbelievable marketability from babies to Seniors. I have looked into acquiring a patten for such an invention and I have done a patten search and nothing came back so my invention is definitely doable and extremely PROFITable…:)

We were doing very well until 2009 when we lost our major clients as per the impact of the recession. We serviced Light Industrial warehouses (Loading/Unloading, Assembly line) on a per hour or flat Rate basis. The business could be very profitable if properly managed, We are now in need of exposure via outside salespersons. We have access to over 250 prospective temporary workers,and… Read more »
