Mark Cuban's Game
What would you say to someone interested in purchasing a team?
Make sure you recognize that the team always belongs to the city and the fans -- you are only the trustee.
I've heard rumors about the Chicago Cubs -- are you considering purchasing them or any other sports team?
I'm always interested in iconic teams or teams from my hometown, but it's a "nice to do," not a "have to do."In your journey from post-college bartender to billionaire, what has influenced you the most, and to what do you attribute your success? Learning that I loved the sport of business -- that I loved to compete and if I focused on things I loved to do, whether it was technology, programming, marketing, sports, whatever I really enjoyed, then I never felt like I was working. It's always something that I wanted to do, not wanted to get away from. As an Ayn Rand enthusiast, I heard you were inspired by The Fountainhead. ... How has the book influenced your business philosophy? [It's helped me] recognize that how others feel about you is irrelevant -- that most people are drawn to the common middle ground, but being the one standing away from the pack is a good thing, not a problem. Do you feel you were blessed with a mind for business? I think I have been blessed with the ability to learn and the thirst to learn as much as I can. Any words on Sharesleuth.com, one of your latest ventures, which has been described as an exercise in making online journalism financially viable? It's working. We publish based on when we find a story worth publishing. This approach has allowed us to do the depth of research and analysis that also provides an edge in picking stocks ... the combination has been great. I still have the same positions as documented on the Web site. I haven't traded a share, which is always a good sign.
