PRESS RELEASE · Chicago IL, USA ·
Marcus Lemonis, investor, businessman and longtime host of CNBC’s The Profit, announced today the launch of his unconventional podcast distributed by Wondery, One Hundred Percent with Marcus Lemonis. The new show is a mix of a masterclass, a cocktail party, and a Sunday drive all wrapped up into 30 minutes with a goal to reveal the secrets to success to listeners. The podcast, produced by Nancy Glass’s Glass Entertainment Group and hosted by Marcus Lemonis, premieres on Wondery+ June 16th, giving subscribers one week early access, before expanding to Apple Podcasts, Amazon Music, Spotify and wherever podcasts are available starting June 23rd.
Incorporating his core values family, community, character and ethics, as well as his vast experience with helping small business owners, Marcus teamed up with some of his friends to provide valuable advice to a broader audience in an entertaining and unique way. Through his unique and very personal process, he uses his ability to identify both problems and solutions to help others. For years, he has transformed the trajectory of businesses and the lives of its founders.
“I’ve always focused on people, process and product, and while ‘One Hundred Percent’ remains true to this motto, I wanted to create a podcast that allows business and mentorship to be fun and unfiltered,” says Marcus Lemonis. “We hear stories from some amazing business owners across the country and also some amazing notable entrepreneurs who we all know and love. And I’m thrilled to partner with Wondery to bring this podcast to life for all to listen, enjoy and hopefully learn something along the way.”
In each episode, listeners will meet the most exciting generation of business owners, including Charles Barkley, Gayle King, Kristen Bell, Howie Mandell, and many of the innovative ventures coming to and disrupting the market. They also talk about something these successful entrepreneurs rarely reveal, the secret of taking their business to the next level. Marcus and the guest will also introduce small business owners into the conversation to further explore that question and provide guidance. He talks to CEOs, entrepreneurs, inventors and all kinds of new leaders in the only way he knows how, it gets personal.
