One Hundred Percent with Marcus Lemonis is a little bit of a masterclass, a cocktail party and a Sunday drive all wrapped up into 30 minutes with an audience invited to listen in.
Marcus values family, community, character and ethics and helps small business owners who need his guidance and investment. His process is very personal and provides valuable insight through his ability to identify both problems and solutions. For years he has transformed the trajectory of businesses and the lives of its founders. Listeners will get to enjoy fun and unfiltered conversations centered around mentoring entrepreneurs. The entrepreneurs that Marcus invites onto the show are creating products or services that will impact the world for the better.
In each episode, listeners will meet the most exciting generation of business owners, including Charles Barkley, Kathy Ireland, Al Roker and Nicole Miller, and all the innovative ventures coming to and disrupting the market. Marcus talks to CEOs, entrepreneurs, inventors and all kinds of new leaders in the only way he knows how, it gets personal. They also talk about something successful people rarely reveal, what they need to take their success to the next level. Marcus and the guest explore that question in an effort to solve that puzzle.
Tozuda with Andre Reed
Head injuries seemed to follow entrepreneur Jesse Garcia like a bad habit, earning her the nickname “Tozuda”, or “hard head” in Spanish. Playing through a head injury during a softball game left her with post-concussive symptoms that lasted months. That’s why she created a helmet-attaching device that signals when the wearer has been hit hard enough to be checked for a concussion. Marcus saw the game-changing potential of her invention and called up Hall of Fame wide receiver Andre Reed to help Jesse understand how she can break barriers in the boardroom and get organizations interested in her product.
Run Gum with Jillian Michaels
90% of Americans are hooked on the same drug – caffeine! That’s why two-time Olympic athlete Nick Symmonds spent years downing trendy energy drinks that ultimately left his stomach feeling over-carbonated and uncomfortable. Looking for a burst of energy without the side effects, he teamed up with his coach to create an energy gum as a bite-size solution to his problem. Marcus taps in celebrity personal trainer and fellow entrepreneur Jillian Michaels to help give Nick the advice he needs to grow his business’ success to Olympic proportions.
21 Seeds with Caroline Manzo & Patty McCord
Marcus saw Kat Hantas as a woman with a mission. She wanted to switch from wine to blanco tequila for health and weight loss, but everything on store shelves was just too harsh for her. She set out to make a smooth, feminine, fruit-infused tequila for herself, but her bootleg operation turned into a thriving business called 21 Seeds. With fans like Jessica Alba, Naomi Watts, and Katie Couric, the tequila is a hit with the girls. But the temperature gets a little caliente when Marcus teams up with Real Housewife Caroline Manzo and Netflix exec Patty McCord to challenge Kat on why she’s letting an entire gender of consumers slip through her fingers.
The Farmer’s Dog With Kristen Bell
The loss of Marcus’s beloved cocker spaniel led him to seek out the entrepreneurs behind The Farmers Dog. Jonathan and Brett aren’t farmers but they realized farm dogs are mostly fed scraps of human food...real food and those dogs are thriving. In people food we obsess over preservatives and GMOs, so why are so many of us willing to feed our pups brown processed mystery balls? Many people including the hilarious actress Kristen Bell aren’t willing to settle and were thrilled to discover this home cooked fresh pet food. Kristin joins Marcus and The Farmers Dog on the pod. Together this team of pet lovers form a plan to save a beloved animal shelter that was forced to close its doggie doors during Covid.
GaBBY Bows with Gayle King
Five year old Gabby Goodwin was OVER it! Every day she left for school with her hair adorably braided in barrettes. When she got home the barrettes were gone and so was her patience. Now at 14, she’s got a patented barrette and a black hair care Empire. Marcus had to meet this business prodigy so he invited the incomparable Gayle King on the podcast. Gayle is so blown away by this young entrepreneur making it in an adult world, she’s asks to invest some of her own money!
Eat Clean Bro with Charles Barkley
Marcus loves a good comeback story and this is it. Jamie was a 26 year old body-builder and a talented cook but he was spiraling from family issues and a career that had flatlined. So he gave himself one year to be a success or be gone. Fast forward to today and Jamie’s company Eat Clean Bro is doing 17 million dollars in sales, delivering perfectly clean and balanced meals to front doors across America. But this podcast isn’t called 50%. Marcus sees the potential in Jamie to double those numbers and invites basketball legend and entrepreneur Charles Barkley on. The talk gets pretty personal about family, loss, and letting go to move forward.

Cliche in a podcast!
Pure pablum. Quasi-expert. This is the first losing game Wondery has pitched.
Great spin on an entrepreneurial show. Loved these recent episodes.
