Celebrity Apprentice's Marcus Lemonis on RawONE, Eating Disorders, and Secret to Success

Marcus Lemonis is a man of many talents. In addition to his status as a self-made millionaire, the entrepreneur and philanthropist has taken turns on multiple reality TV shows, including Secret Millionaire, Celebrity Apprentice and the soon-to-air The Big Fix. Basically, he serves as a business turnaround expert who can swoop in and help save struggling companies.

Due to a weight problem and struggles with an eating disorder in his youth, Lemonis is a die-hard healthy eating enthusiast, and a large part of his investments are geared toward companies that deal in fresh, natural foods. Most recently, he became a 50 percent partner in RawONE Foods, a South Florida-based, family-owned snack manufacturer. We spoke to Lemonis on his new acquisition, his CNBC show and the secret to his success.
