Why The TV Show “The Profit” Is The Worst Show On TV

theprofit

If you haven’t heard about the runaway hit show “The Profit” on CNBC then you must have been living off planet for the last 12 months.

The show stars business tycoon Marcus Lemonis who travels around America investing in struggling small businesses and then waving his magic wand and poof! the businesses seem to magically become successful.

It actually is pretty friggin awesome.

But here is why I say that “The Profit” is the worst show on TV.

I’m a busy person, I have a wife and 6 kids, I run my own internet company, I write and direct movies, and to relax I watch a little TV on the weeknights. You know, brainless shows that allow me to unwind and ponder the mysteries of the universe.

That is until I discovered this new little aforementioned show “The Profit”. My life has never been the same since.

And so Marcus Lemonis, I ask you:

How dare you make a television show that makes me tear up like a baby way more often than I am comfortable with? I personally don’t like crying but I admittedly am a sympathetic cryer when people have something amazing happen to them. I can’t stand the raw emotion.

Do you know how hard it is to hide the tears welling up in my eyes from my wife so she doesn’t make fun of me? Is that what you wanted when you made this show? Would you please be a little more sensitive (pun intended) to how that is affecting me?

Secondly, mentally at 9pm or 10pm at night I am not prepared for a television show that will inspire and motivate me to want to get up immediately and figure out how to make my business (and every business) more profitable. At that hour, I’m trying to wind down and your show has the opposite effect. It’s like eating a whole key lime pie after you already had a half dozen cupcakes. Oh and guess what? The teary eyes add to my exhaustion so you tire me and motivate me at the same time. What’s up with that?

But that isn’t the worst part. How dare you create a show that gets my wheels turning so badly that I lie in bed at night and scheme about all of the ways I can fix this struggling diner that I ate at earlier in the day?

I toss and turn. Should I ask them about their Process? Should I tell them where their Product needs to improve? How much could I increase their profits just by making changes X, Y, Z? Should I talk to each employee (their People) and see what they think about the company? Should I approach the owners and make an offer? What would Marcus do? I’m trying to sleep man!

Have you no respect for a person’s physical and mental health? I’ve got enough on my plate with my online business that helps digital marketing agencies and marketers build amazing SEO backlink profiles and yet after watching your show religiously I find myself thinking about fixing every brick and mortar business I visit.

Why can’t I walk into a business and stop myself from thinking, “I could be like Marcus Lemonis. He’s the most amazing business person I have ever seen. He would want me to invest in this gym that has no customers…”? I hold you responsible.

I don’t know what can be done. I don’t know how I’m going to sleep at night.

Maybe I will just go back to watching “regular” business reality shows that teach me that blowing up beaver dams in the forest and wearing camo to the office is all part of a good day’s work. Now that is night time TV.

Now I know you’re saying, “why don’t you just DVR the show and watch it in the morning?” Oh yeah, that’s a good idea, start off the day getting possessed by the idea of fixing someone else’s business. I think I would be really productive that day.

All I can say to you Mr. Lemonis is, thank goodness for the off season, when I can actually stay focused on my own business and get some work done.

Worst. Show. Ever.

Seriously though, it’s really good.

Now…what time does 19 Kids and Counting come on? (I’m asking for my wife, I swear.)

3 Reasons Why You Shouldn’t Start An Online Business From Scratch


I was doing some key phrase research with Google’s keyword planner the other day and was intrigued to see the huge number of people searching on Google how to start an online business. That phrase, “how to start a business” gets over 40,000 searches a month by itself, while “how to make money online” was also over 40k searches.

It’s great to see the entrepreneurial spirit alive and well. The sad truth about starting a business is that 80% of small businesses fail, and they fail quickly. Or people see just how much money it costs to actually start up a business and decide it is not worth the risk.

Starting an online business is a little different because you don’t have all of the overhead and real estate costs associated with brick and mortar businesses. That makes the barrier to entry smaller. But whether you are trying to learn how to start an online business or a brick and mortar company there is something you need to know that will get you to profitability faster than you ever thought possible.

One of the accidental revelations that came from me buying and selling websites over the last 7+ years was learning why you should never start a business from scratch, especially an online business.

1. Let someone else do all of the initial work for you
The ramp up stage of running a successful online business can be both daunted and demotivating. Especially if one of your main strategies is SEO as getting to the top of the search engines takes time. You can take advantage of someone else’s demotivation as they have waited through that ramp up time and buy when they are on the brink of success.

This works because people are not as emotionally attached to a website because they are so cheap and easy to get set up. So you swoop in and offer them a sum of money to buy the online business from them when they had most likely given up on ever making anything from the website. Now you can take it over and take the business to the next level much more quickly than starting from scratch.

2. Take advantage of disheartened owners
I helped a friend do this exact thing. He wanted to start an SEO consulting agency. He was good at SEO but knew that trying to get a new website ranked in that category would take years. So he did exactly what I described. He went out and found 3 or 4 SEO consulting websites that had been around for at least a year and contacted them all. Sure enough he found 2 that were willing to sell at a steep discount. So he made a deal with one of them and bought a SEO consultant website from the disheartened owner for under $500.

I helped him take the site over and apply SEO knowledge to the website and it quickly moved up in the rankings. Now he makes thousands of dollars every month consulting. Can you imagine being able to walk into a business that is primed to make money right now?

3. Going After A Proven Model
Another reason that this strategy is so awesome is that you can pick any industry. You can choose an industry that you know is very lucrative. For example, let’s say you want to be a realtor. You know there are thousands of other realtors out there right now that you are competing with.

That also means there are many realtors who have decided the competition is too much and they are moving on to other things. These realtors have all done the work building and promoting a website. So you as a brand new realtor can sneak in and snatch up a disheartened realtor’s website and then be in business in no time. There is no reason to sit through ramp up time on any business.

If you want to know how to start an online business this is how you do it. Buy your way in but the key is to buy low. I once bought an online business for $500 and within 9 months sold it for $150,000. All I had to do was fix up the site and do some awesome SEO and I was rocking and rolling in a couple of weeks. I have repeated this same model many times and had the same result many times selling 14 internet businesses over a 5 year span.

Just bought another website

Many people ask me if I have retired from website flipping. In fact I saw a forum thread over at Warrior Forum where people were asking what had happened to me.

It is true that I took a year off from website flipping to pursue my dream of being a filmmaker. But my movie has long been released and is out on dvd so I am ready to get back into the mix of finding undervalued websites, fixing them up and then when the revenue is kicking, selling them for great profits.

I found a website that was on the verge of being really good and the guy needed the money so he sold to me. I can’t reveal all of the details now but I was thinking about doing a members only thing where I let you look over my shoulder and see how I work with the website from inception to sale.

I’m still not sure if that is what I want to do but I will see if enough people tell me they would be interested in something like that.

Anyway, in answer to all of the questions of whether or not I still flip websites or just sell training on how to do it, yes I do still flip.

Buy A Website or Start One From Scratch?

A couple of years ago Google hit websites really hard that had done a lot of SEO. This caused many websites in almost every industry to drop from the rankings and websites that hadn’t done a lot of SEO to rise to the top of the rankings.

This created an interesting paradox in the SEO world. Should you try to work to recover the rankings you worked so hard to get and now have lost? Or should you give up on a site and start a new one where you can control exactly how much SEO has been done on a site?

I was recently looking at one of the website marketplaces at a site that was ranking #1 for a phrase that was the biggest phrase in this website’s niche. I was impressed at the ranking because the website seemed pretty simple. As I looked at the details of the site I realized the site was only 4 months old.

4 months old? So what Google is telling us is you can start a brand new website and within a few months get to #1 for a top tier key phrase?

Now before you go out and start 10 new websites I have a word of warning. We have no idea what this website owner did to get that site to #1. They may be employing some serious black hat technique that will get them banned. But it may be worth a test to start a new website and see what kind of dent you can make in the rankings in the first few months.

It could be that since so many sites were penalized you just don’t have a lot of competition in the different niches.

I still prefer to buy a website than to build one from scratch but I probably will build one soon to see how it goes.

Why you should be your own boss…

One of my favorite things to do when I don’t feel like working on internet marketing stuff is to work on what I affectionately call “Bourne Training”. The Jason Bourne movies are in my top 10 of all time favorite movies.

So today my two brothers and I went to a neighbors house who has a shooting range in his basement and got our Bourne on.

Check me out in action:

The music is actually music made for the trailer of my movie Inspired Guns.
