Famous for his stint as the owner of the NBA team Dallas Mavericks, Mark Cuban is an American entrepreneur and serial investor. Once a Bartender in Dallas, he is the same person who holds the The Guinness Book Record for making the largest single ecommerce transaction. A born entrepreneur, Mark inherited his entrepreneurial genes from his grandfather and, since his childhood, has been a master at deal making. At the early age of 12, he sold ’Garbage Bags’ to save money for the shoes that he wanted to buy for himself.
Mark Cuban rose to fame when, in 1999, he sold his startup Audionet (later known as Broadcast.com), a live commentary broadcasting website, to Yahoo for $5.6Bn and, in the year 2000, bought the Dallas Mavericks. Mark pretty much single handedly led the marketing campaign of his team and also made changes in the culture and management that evolved Mavericks into a team that won the NBA title in 2011.
With a net worth in the neighbourhood of $2.7Bn, this billionaire surely knows how to enjoy the money he has earned working hard and likes to live his life BIG. At present, he besides managing the Mavericks and being the chairman and CEO of AXS TV, also appears as a serial investor on the show ‘Shark Tank’.
Here are a few quotes Mark shares from his life experiences:
It’s not in the dreaming, it’s in the doing.
