On an episode of ABC’s FABLife (unfortunately, they are no longer on the air), multi-millionaire Mark Cuban pays a visit and reveals his top 5 business tips that can help you become a success…a possible millionaire! The Shark Tank judge also shares his views on raising his kids to be “grateful” and not “entitled jerks.”
Check out some excerpts/paraphrases from the interview:
When asked about his (5) business tips on becoming a mogul and building a brand:
“You gotta find something you love to do and be great at it – because no one wants to go to work and hate their job.”
“It’s never a straight line…you gotta grind.”
“You gotta be able to sell…sales cures all.”
“Be nice…people think being successful is all about being grouchy or telling people what to do. In reality, nice helps.”
“Reduce the stress of those people around you.”
When asked about the biggest lessons he wants his kids (Cuban is the father of 3) to learn from him:
“I don’t want them being entitled jerks. I am the luckiest guy in the world and I don’t want them having a sense of entitlement. I want them to have to earn what they get. I want them to respect and feel grateful for what they have. I don’t want them to think that there is anybody above them or below them…really just trying to get them to be nice, real people.”
