(Note: A similar post originally appeared as part of our podcast launch announcement. To enable everyone to find Mark Cuban’s show notes, I’ve decided to include a separate post here as well.)
Mark sold his first company at age 29, his second one at age 39 for $5.7 Billion, he is the outspoken owner of Dallas Mavericks, he owns Magnolia Pictures, and is the star of ABC’s Shark Tank.
In this episode, Mark shares some stories that are not widely known. We really get into what makes Mark tick and why he is different than a lot of other entrepreneurs. He has some controversial opinions as you might imagine, but it’s in this controversy that you’ll be able to learn how he’s winning at what he calls the ultimate sport: business.
You either want to win, or you don’t want to win. Business is the ultimate sport.
