Mark Cuban

Mark CubanBillionaire Mark Cuban is in his second full season as one of The Sharks. He is the owner of the Dallas Mavericks and invests in companies, both on and off ABC’s Shark Tank TV Show. Mark Cuban has launched several companies including Broadcast.com (originally known as Audionet), a company that I enjoyed using in the nineties. He later launched the successful television network, HDnet.

Engaging Mark Cuban

Most surprising about Billionaire Mark Cuban is his willingness to engage challenges from people who he has nothing to gain. If I had one question to ask him, it would be why he gives them the time. In my opinion, he is doing it for sport. Another possibility is he likes beating up people who he thinks are bullies.

Season four has Cuban even more unforgiving than ever, attacking entrepreneurs he believes are intentionally deceive The Sharks. As you may know, Season three showed one of the biggest battles with ScotteVest CEO, Scott Jordan. The real battle lit up after the first showing of his Shark Tank episode and continued into the blogs and Twitter.

Each investor shows unique characteristics. Mark Cuban is very intense and expressive. Yet, I believe his investments are not based on emotion, even when he is willing to pay whatever it takes, outbidding the other Sharks. Ultimately, it appears he is using the strategy to build his personal brand, the same purpose I believe he maintains a personal blog.

Coming soon is Mark Cuban’s Shark Tank Investment record. See what companies he invested in, if they passed due diligence and what is the current status of the company.

    I HAVE A PRODUCT THAT WILL REVOLUTIONIZE UNDER WATER SCUBA DIVING/SNORKELING. IF YOU HAVE EVER BEEN SNORKELING BEFORE, YOU CAN ONLY STAY DOWN ON THE BOTTOM UNTIL YOU RUN OUT OF AIR, CORRECT? WELL, I HAVE INVENTED AN ITEM TO KEEP YOU ON THE BOTTOM ALL DAY. I HAVE USED MY PRODUCT FOR 14 HOURS TO GO SHARKS TOOTH HUNTING AND HAD A BLAST DOING IT BECAUSE I DIDNT HAVE TO COME UP FOR AIR THE WHOLE ENTIRE TIME. I LIVE IN STEINHATCHEE, FLORIDA AND I AM A COMMERICAL GROUPER FISHERMAN. THIS PRODUCT WOULD BE GREAT FOR EVERYONE OF ALL AGES, CHILDREN INCLUDED AND NOT TO MENTION EVERY BOAT OWNER, SWIMMER WORLD WIDE, SCALLOPING, SCRAPING THE BOTTOM OF YOUR BOAT, OR IF YOUR ROPE IS IN THE WHEEL. ALSO, JUST A FUN FILLED DAY EXPLORING THE BOTTOM OF THE OCEAN AND REEFS. YOU CAN USE IT TO THE DEPTH OF 15 FEET UNDER WATER AND POSSIBLY MORE. MY PRODUCT COMES WITH ITS VERY OWN DIVE FLAG THAT IS DIRECTLY ABOVE THE USER AT THE TOP OF THE WATER. PLEASE CALL ME AT 850-371-0444, 727-470-3647, OR EMAIL ME. I REALLY NEED HELP PATENTING THIS ITEM. I DO APPRECIATE YOU TAKING THE TIME TO READ THIS AND WANTED TO SAY THANKS ALOT AND I CANT WAIT TO HEAR FROM YOU VERY SOON IN THE NEAR FUTURE.

    REGARDS,

    Mr. Cuban, I love shark tank and have been debating how you as an investor get your capital back out and how do you make a profit? How long does it generally take to recoup your funds in the successful ventures? Do your take a certain percentage of profits each year until the capital is paid? Do you sell the shares back to the majority stakeholder once a certain valuation is reached? Do you expect the company to sell out to a larger firm or take the company public? Just curious how this works. Thanks.

    Mark, while I find you entertaining in the show, I get so offended when you pull antics like you did with Verbalizeit. What percentage of entrepeneurs actually get a shot on the show? This is their big chance, and while it may just be a fun competition for you, it’s serious business for these people. To make them offers and attach ultimatums like “don’t wait for other offers, answer me now or I’m out” shows a side of you that disappoints me tremendously. Try to remember why you’re there…..

    I have a product I believe you may be interested in , hopefully buying if it appeals to you.
    it’s for the love of the sport called ”FOOTBALL”. it’s for all the coaches to use in this type sport
    and very possible other sports. I came up with this concept while watching a greenbay game .bret and mike was getting a play ready. very simple. can sell to all fans of all sports, anything that makes the sport more interesting the fans will buy, use, display and this can be the newest item ever for a long time, easy to use . I really would like for you to please out of your busy schedule of business
    to give me this one chance of opportunity to interest you in what I have to present to you sir. thank you.

  9. Hello Mark,
    (on ST you said you prefer “Mark”)

    Subj: High Demand Utility Patented Product, Single Payer – US Gov., pays investor(s) $100Mil to $200Mil gross Profit, per year.

    I have a fully issued Utility Patent, for a product that has been in high demand for many decades. It is badly needed and at the projected price-point, the public will consider it the bargain of a century. What the product does has long been dismissed by millions as having insurmountable obstacles (virtually impossible). However, while working on a project in 2008 +-, it was discovered that this impossibility had expired, and had apparently gone unnoticed. The Patent was assembled by a top intellectual property law firm representing multinational clients such as IBM, Proctor & Gamble and more.

    The product has 3 available Phases. Investor(s)’ payout is commensurate with investor(s)’ Phase commitment. Commitment to Phase 1 pays $100Mil per year gross Profit. Commitment to Phase 2 pays additional $100Mil per year gross Profit, and makes long range revenue from Phase 3 available to investor(s), which is projected to be in the $Billions, and also expected to require no additional capital investment.

    Phase 1 functions much like a key does, in a door lock, and is not dependent on subsequent Phases.

    The societal benefit and national repair that will result from this product will far outweigh the monetary rewards. You will be incredibly proud to be a part of it, and long remembered as much more than a billionaire.

    TIME and GUARANTEE:
    Feel free to arrange for me to first meet with an able associate whom you trust, and will keep content confidential. As a guarantee his/her time will not be wasted, I will bring $1000 in money orders, with the beneficiary blank. If either of the following TIME and PERFORMANCE markers fail, you may do with the $1,000 money orders as you wish (i.e. favorite charity, lunch for the Mav’s, etc.).

    1 (first) Minute to 5 minutes: Associate will recognize that a) the product exists in Utility Patented form, b) the product IS one that has long been in high demand, c) the product (Phase 1), if implemented, can produce the $100M – $200M payouts I mention above.

    – success of those first few minutes should earn me 20 to 30 (or so) more minutes, to give an overview of how Phase 1 works. –

    20 to 30 Minutes: I will give Associate an overview of how Phase 1 works and how it is implemented.

    Assuming the product/patent is acceptable, then Associate will presumably pass that opinion on to you, and assuming a meeting with you, I will explain Phase 1 in more detail. Please respect that I wish not to discuss Phases 2 and 3 with anyone who is not contract signed and committed to Phase 1. I will say though, I’d bet that you would consider your involvement in Phase 1 to be far and away your greatest achievement (children aside), and your involvement in Phases 2 & 3 would even be many, many times greater than that of Phase 1.

    So in summary – 1st Minute – does not involve your time and comes with a $1,000 Guarantee. This is a no loose proposition.

    Mark, on Shark Tank I believe I’ve seen the kinds of things that appear to move you. With that in mind, I am certain that you will be amazed at what this product can produce, and that you will very much want to be a part of it.
