Mark Cuban’s net worth is $4.5 billion. The self-made billionaire ventured into the world of entrepreneurship at age 12 by selling garbage to his neighbors.

Cuban, 63, now runs a huge business empire covering sports to entertainment. He is the sole owner of NBA’s Dallas Mavericks, which is currently valued at over $2.45 billion. He bought the team for $280 million in 2000, leading it to win the 2011 NBA Championship.

Cuban's public personality grew after he became part of a hit reality show Shark Tank from Season 2. Cuban reportedly pockets around $50,000 per episode by making appearances in the show. On the other hand, he has also invested over $1.9 million in various Shark Tank's business pitches.

Broadcast.com, which is no longer around, was an Internet radio company responsible for launching his billionaire status. In 1999, Cuban, along with his partner Todd Wagner, sold Broadcast.com to Yahoo for $5.7 billion. 

Cuban also owns about $1 billion worth of Amazon  (AMZN) - Get Amazon.com, Inc. Report stock. A big fan of cryptocurrency, he is often seen promoting Dogecoin on his social media.
