In this video, Marcus Lemonis pulls back the curtain on some of the darkest details of his life. Filmed during a recent event sponsored by The UPS Store® and Entrepreneur, the businessman and host of CNBC’s The Profit did so not to gain sympathy. Instead, he says transparency is one of the keys to success in business.

Why? It’s all about trust.
