Mark Cuban on How To Negotiate A Deal

If you know my name, then you certainly, know Mark Cuban, a fellow Shark Tank investor and the current owner of the Dallas Mavericks. Mark broke into entrepreneurship at age 12 when he started selling trash bags of all things, and hasn’t slowed down since.

After graduating college and getting fired from his first company, Mark created MicroSolutions, a computer consulting service. He went on to sell MicroSolutions, and then created - a streaming audio internet service, which he also sold. He now lives in Dallas with his wife and three children.

I sat down with Mark to talk about:

  • His background in business
  • Lessons he’s learned along the way
  • Where he sees the future of business headed. 

He also shares advice on negotiating with buyers and athletes, and touches on his experience as the owner of the Dallas Mavericks. This Power Talk is packed with value for anyone looking to head into business!
