Marcus Lemonis has been practicing good leadership principles since before he reached his teens. At the age of 12, he had his own lawn business—with 10 kids on his payroll.

Now he invests his own money to help small businesses. As a star of two CNBC reality shows, he couples his monetary investment with hands-on advice.

“Life is not—and business is not—just about business. Life is really about people. It’s about establishing relationships that truly make a difference,” he says. Marcus uses the following three guidelines when searching for the right people for the right jobs.

  1. It is not just critical to have the right people—you have to have them in the right roles as well.
  1. It’s important to create an “enabling” environment for your employees to ensure they can perform at their best for your company. Having the right people in place isn’t going to lead to success if they’re in an environment where they’re made to feel like failures.
  1. In any business, you have to have the right people and it’s not just about their character, it’s about their training and having the right passion, skills and the moral compass you need.
