Mark Cuban is said to have had a remarkable ability of selling even as a child. This later helped him establish diverse businesses and succeed in every enterprise equally well. Though he began his career in a modest manner, he later went on to establish businesses in diverse fields such as software, film distribution, investing in social startup companies and owning the NBA basketball team – Dallas Mavericks.

Mark Cuban is popular for his verbose personality and voicing out his unrestricted opinion both on and off camera. This has got him into trouble a number of times. He is an ardent fan of the Russian-American novelist Ayn Rand and has mentioned that reading the book ‘The Fountainhead’ allowed him to think as an individual, take risks towards success and responsibility for failures.

Childhood & Early Life
Mark Cuban was born on 31 July 1958 to Norton Cuban and Shirley in Pittsburg, Pennsylvania. His father worked at a car upholstery shop.
As a child, he attended the Mount Lebanon High School at Pennsylvania. Even at a young age he managed to earn money through part time jobs.
After his schooling Mark Cuban enrolled into the University of Pittsburg. However, after a year he transferred into Indiana University in Bloomington and in 1981 graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration.
Mark Cuban had a flair for business and even while studying at the Indiana University he had engaged himself in a variety of businesses like managing a pub, chain letters and instructing dance.
In 1982, after graduation, he moved to Texas and began working as a bartender. He later went on to work as a salesperson of a personal computer software retailer chain named Your Business Software, in Dallas. Mark Cuban was fired from work within a year.
At this point he founded a computer software consulting service called MicroSolutions. His previous experience in this field gave him the knowledge and skills required to initiate the business. He started with the assembling of systems and reselling computer software. In 1990, he managed to sell the company to CompuServe Information Service in a multi million deal.
In 1995, he along with Todd Wagner, an alumnus of Indiana University, began the Audionet—an internet radio company. The idea for this business came from their combined interest in listening to Indiana Hoosier college basket games online. Audionet was named Broadcast.com in 1998. In 1999, Broadcast.com assisted in the launch of the maiden live streamed Victoria’s Secret fashion show. The company was acquired by Yahoo! the same year.
Post the deal, Mark Cuban invested his wealth in diverse businesses. In 2000, he purchased the NBA team Dallas Mavericks. The team had been suffering from poor management decisions and low morale but once Mark Cuban became the owner he took initiative to boost the spirit of his players. The team went on to perform well and in 2006 made it to the finals of the NBA. Subsequently the team won the NBA title in 2011.
Mark Cuban along with partner Todd Wagner founded a media group named 2929 Entertainment, in 2003. 2929 co-produced a renewed version of the television show ‘Star Search’ that year. The same year the partners purchased Landmark Theatres – the largest movie theatre chain in USA, and film the distributor Magnolia Pictures.
