    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. More demand and climate changes seems to be one of the problems. Moreover, As we speak , there are major water company’s, oil company’s and alike looking to buy or lease or right to purchase tracks of land with water. As both you and I know, water is the only commodity that sustains all life on the planet. What I need is direction in terms of I.e. bottleing or leasing. If my due dilagance and my source for water is viable. I’m prepared to do put up part of the venture capital. I’m a advent fan of your show. You teach me not only what I need to know, you also remindi me of some of the basic principles of staying on my game and keeping my eye on the prize. If there some interest in pursuing this matter. I would appreciate and welcome a opportunity to any ideas you may have. Good luck with the Profit. Two Thumbs Up . Much success. Regards, S. M.

    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

    Mr. Marcus Lemonis, I am 55. I would appreciate the opportunity to speak to you directly in reference to my business and circumstances. I’m originally from the Panhandle of Florida, called the “Redneck Riviera”- Ft. Walton Beach/Destin, FL. I grew up there from 1960-1978. Then I moved to Miami, FL for college. My senior year 1976 my father passed away. I came from a catholic, Italian, military family and our family was as well a known family in Ft.Walton Bch, FL. because of my father. There was never cursing, drugs or alcohol in my up bringing. I rebelled for many years. I am the only member of my family to earn a college degree. I have a 28 yr old son, 26 & 24 yr old daughters with 1 granddaughter from my son. Please, this information is personal directly to you.

    I have owned since 2008 ATEC HOSPITALITY, a hotel (in-room) directory and concierge directory business based in Orlando, FL. With the turn in our economy this business is successful again. Over the last year, Uniguest who merged with US Hospitality, 2 national in-room directory providers have contracted with Hilton hotels nationwide, offering them free computers for their business centers in hotel lobbies in exchange for being their guest directory providers. I have 3 year contracts with automatic renewal clause unless given a written notice 90 days prior to the end of the 3rd year.

    Another issue I’m dealing with his bad hires of sales reps over the last 3-4 months.

    I am asking of you the opportunity to speak to you directly to explain in depth my circumstances. Would you give me a few minutes of your time.

    Thank you,

    M.Soave

    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 have the funds for) or stay in my house and oh so slowly grow the business.

    It’s important for us to give back to the community. We had our local high school web design and development class build our website for class credit & final exams. All our food trimmings & excess jerky are donated to the local animal shelters. We also are active in their fundraisers.

    Cooper’s Way All Natural Jerky Treats for Pets is currently available in over 30 stores in the Chicago area. We are licensed to sell in IL, WI, MI & PN. We would like to be nationwide to provide a product that isn’t available.

    Are you able to guide us? If not, is there someone you could refer us to?

    Thank you for your consideration.

    Sincerely,
    Vicki Price CEO

  10. Anthony Gorrell Says:

    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 for your show to look at, create opportunity for people as the show does and MAKE MORE PROFIT. I just ask for you to look at the 2 businesses and then decide, by the way the don’t know about my request. Thank you, Anthony Gorrell

  14. JOHN JACKSON Says:

    DEAR MR.LEMONIS I HAD STARTED A CLOTHING LINE 15yrs AGO CALLED PRIMAL INSTINCTS. THE LINE OF CLOTHING WAS ATHLETIC WEAR FOR WOMEN. THE LOGO FOR MY BRAND WAS TWO LIONESS PRESSING UP A BARBELL. THE INTENTION FOR THIS IDEA WAS TO GET WOMEN TO TAKE PRIDE IN THERE IN THEIR PHYSIQUE. I STARTED OUT IN CHICAGO AND DID OKAY BUT ONLY DURING THE SUMMER MONTHS. I WAS FORCED TO MOVE BACK EAST TO HELP MY SICK AUNT WHO RAISED ME BECAUSE MY MOM DIED WHEN I WAS 6 AND MY FATHER WAS NEVER A PART OF MY LIFE. FASHION HAS BEEN A PART OF MY WHOLE LIFE IT’S A PART OF MY DNA. I HAD MODELED ON AND OFF DURING MY YOUNGER DAYS AS WELL AS PUTTING TOGETHER A LINE OF SWIMSUIT CALENDERS. THE FIRST CALENDER THAT I DID WAS CALLED BLOWN AWAY LADIES OF THE WINDY CITY THE SECOND ONE WAS CALLED DAIRYLAND DOLLS I BELIEVED THAT THESE WERE VERY GOOD CATCH PHRASES AND I RECEIEVED PLENTY OF POSITIVE FEEDBACK BUT COULD NOT GET ANYONE TO INVEST IN MY IDEAS AND HAD TO SHELF THEM TO FIND A REGULAR JOB. I AM AN ENTREPRENEUR BY NATURE AND GOD’S WILL. I HAVE SERVED THIS GREAT COUNTRY OF OURS AS A SOLDIER IN THE US ARMY HONORABLY. ALTHOUGH I HAVE WORKED ALL MY LIFE I AM UNEMPLOYED NOW AND TIMES ARE ROUGH I BELIEVE IN MYSELF AND MY DREAMS. I DON’T WANT A HANDOUT JUST A OPPORTUNITY. I AM 110 PERCENT POSITIVE IF GIVEN THE BACKING THAT I CAN BE EXTREMELY SUCCESSFUL AND BE ABLE TO PROVIDE FOR MYSELF MY FAMILY AND IN TURN HELP AS MANY PEOPLE AS I CAN REACH THERE GOALS AND ACHIEVE THERE DREAMS. THANK YOU SINCERELY JOHN JACKSON

    Dear Mr. Lemonis, I have tried to start my own company STAR (save teens at risk)
    My program help kids who have opted out of foster care and are basically on the streets. With no education and no family these kids are doomed to fail. in the community that we live in there are no programs to help them grow. I need your help to get a building for them to come to for all aspects of there teen years to adult years. college application, resume building,interview skills,teen pregnancy,gang involvement,respect for others and the utmost respect for themselves. Once they are of age they are put in harms way to survive on the streets, creating the news that we watch on television everyday. I want your help because i don’t our children being treated like they are in a third world country, most of them haven’t even see the snow. sad but true. I want to take them places that they can only imagine and i believe with your help we can do this. god bless you i look forward to hearing from you soon.

  18. Sally Florence Says:

    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. I would like your help and partnership. Please let me send you a couple of six-packs of cards.
    Happy Trails,
    Sally Florence

    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…:)

    Dear Mr Lemonis, you are God sent for small businesses in difficulty. This note is a follow up on a previous application we filed with you on line. We are running a small family Staffing agency. 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 our goals is to reach over 500.
    We have contacted you via the on line Application but we did no receive any answer. Please help. lpierre79@hotmail.com Respectfully, Ludin Pierre

    Mr. Profit we have a family business, located in Washington DC it is a Pharmacy that has gone from doing well, to not doing so well. It is located in an area where we should be successful but with poor management and with a key owner not letting go of the past we are on the brink of closing our doors forever. Prior to my husbands brief illness and I feel before his illness the business started defaulting on its bills and have never been able to catch up we are in a historic area where I have tried to turn the business around with some of my retirement money but it appears we have a black hole that drains every bite of the monies I pump into this business. Due to our failure to meet some of the demands for service we have lost very valuable customers. We are on a sinking ship I feel with the know how and the right guidance we could turn this business around and expand what we have into a very successful business. Please help us you would be a blessing I am praying for to save our business.
    Respectfully,
