MBA1918 Must Read: How to Win at the Sport of Business by Mark Cuban

Why do some entrepreneurs win, while others…just don’t?

If you ask reality TV star and Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban, the short answer is hustle — even though so many other factors are outside your control.

Today, we review Cuban’s book, How to Win at the Sport of Business. Packed with actionable, down-to-Earth advice, this book leaves no doubt as to how Cuban rose from modest means to serious wealth: through sheer hustle, and never letting go of a small business owner’s mindset.

Even as a multi-billionaire, Cuban plays exactly the same game we all play — just at a bigger scale. The book’s lessons apply just as well to a Mom & Pop store or software startup as they would to a global conglomerate. 

Adapted from a series of blog posts, this book is straightforward, personal, and (most importantly) useful. Hear our takeaways: Click Play!
