Can Marcus bridge the divide between father and son and bring their business back from the brink?

Ummæli

  • 9:38 cool

  • 7:15 fd

  • what a mentor wow

  • 17:51 I didnt know jimmy fallon was in the business

  • 1.5 million for 45% is great deal. He looked out for them. Keeps the majority for Steve the 3rd and he teaches him the important stuff. This was a great deal on all Sides.

  • I love it when Marcus said,"You need to go to a different church".

  • He glad marcus there

  • Nice Video

  • Can any one give an update on the current state of the business. ??

    • Still in business

  • At 90% fail rate, other than for T.V., why in the world would you invest??? I love this show, but there are too many faulty small businesses out there to start your chances at a 90% fail rate....Just saying, no hate. Still love the show

  • Why kind of major should I have in college to work and have expertise in this kind of work? ( not the furniture, but the economics/finances/running the business)

    • accounting, business management, economics.

  • Increíble el programa y la magia de arreglar negocios con orden y responsabilidad, me fascino. Felicitaciones 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻❤️

  • Lol literally a half aas chair

  • 35:00 This is the hardest thing a lot of parents failed to say. Most kids could have been a lot better if they can hear the negative and the positive side from their parents.

  • How are they now with this f. corona virus?

  • this show is amazing that initial showroom seems a lost opportunity it was very outdated it should have an openconcept where you can see the workshop in the back the whole styles need to catch up with trends working closely with the interior design sector make it more affordable for the mid-range market and move things in the warehouse to become more digitised regarding logistics and work in progress etc

  • I love this man (I am a man)

  • Marcus can read a business and the people so well, no wonder he accumulated a large fortune. You don't need a business class if you are watching this series.

  • Marcus has mastered people management skills. It really is brilliant to watch.

  • I like the authenticity of Marcus...such a great human with high IQ and EQ

  • Machine saves money, increases margin

  • $1700 for a chair? Cmon..

    • @Rich Racing I agree with you, I get we pay the design but if you do the cost of the materials and handwork that chair doesnt cost more than $100 to make.. the design costs are too much... I put a pretty good $300 chair beside that $1700 one and I bet most of people cant see the difference because there aint any .. so.. $1400 for the "design"? again... Cmon.... Cheers!

    • For the custom designer that isn't that much. Think luxury furniture. There almost handmaking the furniture, so its not out of line.

  • Very Smart Decisions for the Grafton Company i respect that they are a company that has hung in there for 3 Generations yet they are wrong for not keeping up with todays technology I’m a retired woodworker with ove 20 professional years in the Industry yet although the old machinery was built to last todays machines have been improved and can do the job better And faster As well as increase profits quite a bit over the old ways its almost like telling people not to use power tools and that hand tools are the best way to do everything no thats just plain Stupid sure hand tools can get the job done but a power tool will do that much faster and probably more precise in the long run ! I liked the improvements that were made in the video yet I believe Grafton can do better in their production of the furniture With some more modernization and upgrades and in reality make happier Employees and more profit margins for everyone while gaining more Quality Control and a better environment for all the Employees and owners

  • 600,000 mortgage on a building you were in for 50 years

  • 9:44 - Dwight K. Schrute in the house.

    • assistant to the assistant production manager

  • Look at Marcus,' face in the beginning his reaction LoL

  • Wonderful episode! Thanks for posting it. Marcus is the coolest.

  • Wow!!! Great job to everyone at Grafton Furniture! And Marcus, you’re a game changer, and more importantly a LIFE SAVER! This show is “AWESOME!”

  • Those prices for that furniture is crazy it lolks like stuff at levin

  • How many workers are illegal

  • O cara entendi de tdo q isso

  • Stevie’s really cute

  • What happened at the Dallas meeting?

  • Perhaps a retail avenue these furniture people should pursue is office furniture. I have seen cheap industrial garbage chairs, desks and cubicle walls get sold in huge orders at $10,000+ per set, and that was years ago. Sell the top executives premium furniture, but have a line of cubicle sets that sell for less than the big industrial brands, if that is profitable enough.

  • I've seen about ten episodes of this show and I always think that when ML gives these speeches to the employees they are all thinking the same thing: "More work for us with no increase in pay. More money for the bosses."

    • They're thinking a business that was in the brink of failure can hopefully survive and we'll continue to have jobs.

  • Shock and smile people...shock and smile

  • No safety glassses

  • Product. Process. People.....then Profits 💯👌 I'd like to see the businesses say 5 years after he has invested.

  • some of these owners act like they are so good but they really dont have any idea on alot of simple stuff.. very surprising and scary! But if Marcus invested $1.5m for 45%, and they had a mortgage of $1mil, and he spent $700k on renovations, machinery etc... where does the working capital come from?

  • I wonder why the fail rate is so high on 3rd generation businesses 🤔

  • What should I study if I want to do that job?

  • This family seems like such nice people especially the dad. Great episode so far.

  • This family seems like such nice people especially the dad. Great episode so far.

  • 6:54: “This is our Bible.” “Well you need to go to a different church.” 🤣

  • For anyone watching this, visit GraftonFurniture.com to see their progress.

  • First time that I've heard of this show 2018. It rocks, I really love it! Great incentive too! Shoot 45% of the business, hish!!

    • This is a great show and Marcus is awesome

  • So it seems that marcus always want full control of the business but no responsibility. being that he is 45 percent means that he is off the hook if things go wrong. reminds me of when paul helps that restaurant by backing it but only drains the business for his profit. Great job Marcus for being the best hustler and shark

    • If things go wrong, he's responsible for 45% of it, you dolt.

    • "Off the hook if things go wrong" What does that even mean? He invested in a business for 45% ownership meaning he has great incentive to see it succeed. This is one of the most ignorant comments coming from someone with no business experience that I've ever seen.

  • Check out Graton's portfolio on their website.. they're doing amazing work!

  • I like how the kid is rocking a yellow dot tee-shirt now.

    • Best shirt ever 😍😎

    • great kid.

  • Always get a kick out of Americans yakking about the "uniquely American Dream". As if every other country's citizens don't have the same economic goals and dreams. The US has no monopoly on success stories. Or opportunities. That is one ugly mural.

    • jim gunn I think they mean that the grandfather was a first generation migrant who wanted to pursue the american dream

  • I teared up at 19:05.

  • Absolutely one great story 👍🏼

  • He says this is our Bible and Marcus says "Then you need to go to a different church." Lol

  • I hope they have amazing success.

  • What kind of coat is that Mracus Lemonis is wearing when the show first comes on with the theme song

  • no

  • Everything was going great..... then they showed that hideous mural :D

  • no table or chairs in the lunchroom, disingenuous caring about the employees...

  • guardians of tge galxy

  • His wife looks like she's been through the mill.

  • the best episode so far

  • min 19 ... lots of emotion! america is all the world... america unida

  • Amazing!

  • Personally i would want to see more about the financial revival and less of family drama....

    • Yes I agree, also the information about company value is missing in all the episodes that I saw, we can't tell if asking for 45% share of the company is fair or not.

  • Then Trump saw this episode and got them all deported... The End.

    • Philosopher if you are not native you get to go out here, this land is for reall americans. Natives

    • The Philosopher hahahhahahah

    • I would be a little , just a little bit worried from someone spreading out my country national security into the world and bluffing me all the time without achieving one single promise of his campaign than being worried about a worker paid close to nothing to do a job that a homeless american won't agree to do it... And yeah, one more thing, you should get a dictionary and search for the word "Joke"

  • are you married?

  • 6:02 wife chawing her gum like a cow. I f'n hate people who chew with their mouth open.

    • Hate is a strong word

  • Everything was awesome until that grafitti..

    • The graffiti will encourage them to work with him. :)

    • Paulo To be honest, I thought it seemed a little inappropriate myself. Even though it was nicely done.

    • You didn't like it? I thought it was pretty good. Although some small things (the son's face looks more angular or hispanic than it is, lol), in general I think the message is bold and the style compliments it.

  • I love how Marcus works with people. More business men should be like him.

    • I love how Marcus works with people. More people should be like him. ftfy

  • Looks like this video has the wrong thumbnail. Love the show, though!

    • Sara Guerard oh yeah!😂😂

  • marcus lemonis for president

    • President of your business. . .

    • Being a politician proves profitable.

    • He's not an American born citizen 😢😢

    • Ivan Dz yes!!! Without a doubt !

  • Is this all scripted? Nabil Alnazir Ahmed

  • Thank you for uploading full episodes. Smart move.

  • Lol AT&T definitely paid to have their backup service shown and mentioned .

  • Stevie with the red hair is cute!

  • I have never seen Joes that empty in my life.

    • Marcus probably rented out the whole restaurant to film at 6 am or something.

    • Jacob Weil the

  • Marcus has such a strong ability to sense exactly what is happening in our emotions and communicate it effectively.

    • Just watching these episdoes teaches me so much!

  • So scripted
