Whether you know him from the fact he owns a lifetime ticket with American Airlines, owns an NBA team, or from SharkTank, the billionaire Mike Cuban knows how to run businesses, and here are 24 Mark Cuban quotes that every business owner needs to hear:
In the past, people used to tell me to shut up a bit. But what I believe is to put out your opinion and let everyone else react. If I’m wrong, I’m wrong. 2. I still work hard to know my business. I’m continuously looking for ways to improve all my companies, and I’m always selling. Always. 3. Effort is measured by setting goals and getting results. 4. If you can’t admit a failure, you’re not an entrepreneur. You are not a good business person. There’s nothing brilliant about what you are doing. 5. It is so much easier to be nice, to be respectful, to put yourself in your customers’ shoes and try to understand how you might help them before they ask for help, than it is to try to mend a broken customer relationship. 6. One of the most underrated skills in business right now is being nice. 7. In business, to be a success, you only have to be right once. 8. With every effort, I learned a lot. With every mistake, I learned what not to do. 9. What I’ve learned in these 11 years is you just got to stay focused and believe in yourself and trust your own ability and judgment. 10. What makes a good salesperson? Let me be clear that it’s not the person who can talk someone into anything. It’s not the hustler who is a smooth talker. The best salespeople are the ones who put themselves in their customer’s shoes and provide a solution that makes the customer happy. 11. If you’re prepared and you know what it takes, it’s not a risk. You just have to figure out how to get there. There is always a way to get there. 12. I was poor as f*ck living on the floor and I had already won. It has nothing to do with money. If you can wake up in the morning with a smile on your face, excited about the day, and say ‘you know what? I’m going to get it done today! I’m going to do something I love to do’, then you have won. 13. It’s not about money or connections. It’s the willingness to outwork and outlearn everyone. 14. Learn to sell. In business, you’re always selling – to your prospects, investors, and employees. To be the best salesperson put yourself in the shoes of the person to whom you are selling. Don’t sell your product. Solve their problem. 15. The only thing any entrepreneur, salesperson or anyone in any position can control is their effort. 16. In my opinion, right now, there’s way too much hype on the technologies and not enough attention to the real businesses behind them. 17. Every no gets me closer to a yes. 18. What I’ve learned is that if you really want to be successful at something, you’ll find that you put the time in. You won’t just ask somebody if it’s a good idea, you’ll go figure out if it’s a good idea. 19. Know how your company will make money and how you will make sales. 20. I wouldn’t be where I am now if I didn’t fail—a lot. The good, the bad—it’s all part of the success equation. 21. Creating opportunities means looking where others are not. 22. One thing we can all control is effort. Put in the time to become an expert in whatever you’re doing. It will give you an advantage because most people don’t do this. 23. Doesn’t matter if the glass is half-empty or half-full. All that matters is that you are the one pouring the water.
