Here's Why You Should Study Tycoons

Before you can attempt something truly big, you will need the courage.
Before you can have the courage, you will need the knowledge.

Do you have what it takes to succeed at the tycoon level?

Here are three reasons why any serious entrepreneur needs to study tycoons:

- Tycoons are creative problem-solvers. While most people give up on their goals after hitting an obstacle or having a set-back, tycoons almost always find a way to get the deal done and keep their momentum rolling forward. Where there's a will there's most certainly a way.

- They are unstoppable. They are real life "Terminators." Friedrich Nietzsche is famous for having written about the "will to power," which he believed to be the primary driving force in humans. Specifically, it's the ambition and drive for achievement, recognition, and the highest possible position in life. Tycoons tend to be the best examples of people with this type of drive.

- And last but not least, they are builders. They build companies, edifices, and empires. The best ones leave behind a legacy as well.

Marcus Meets Murchison-Hume

In 2008 Max Kater founded Los Angeles-based Murchison-Hume a maker of non-toxic cleaning products. She was motivated by a desire to make cleaning products which her son wouldn't be allergic to.

As is normally the case with companies appearing on The Profit, Murchison-Hume is in crisis. The main reason for this is that Max creates products for herself not her market. Her husband, Peter, who has a day job is subsidizing the business with his income.

Shortly after arriving at the company Marcus mentions that he finds the brand name an odd choice for a cleaning product line. It really does sound like a law firm. Continue reading

Marcus Saves Chicago's Honest Foods

This was a very good episode if you're more into the business lessons than the drama.

Background

The Honest Foods catering company was launched in 1997 with three thousand dollars by Tad Devlin. Tad just has a natural flair for cooking and his food looks mouth-wateringly tasty. Honest Foods then grew into a company serving the film and television production business in Chicago.  In recent months the its sales have dropped 30% and Tad is deeply worried. Hence the call to Marcus. Unfortunately the reason for the drop is never looked into nor explained. It would have been interesting to know why this is the case.
