My advice to those starting out is keep asking yourself if you should be an entrepreneur. If you slowly find yourself disliking the corporate world, go start your own business. Get a real estate license or some other license where you work for an organization yet you are your own boss.
The only thing I didn't like about the book was it read like a blog. But then again, that's what Mark intended it to be - a compilation of blogs.
Overall, it was great!
It's not a traditional book, but rather a collection of blog posts written by Mark on his advice for attaining success. I really enjoyed his style of writing and I liked hearing the story from his perspective.
What I really enjoyed was hearing about the POS car he drove, the two cheap polyester suits he owned, and when he first started how he slept on a couch or floor in an apartment with a bunch of other dudes. Not sure why, but this part really resonated with me. 😉Mark wasn't born into wealth and earned everything he has by working his tail off amongst the other lessons he shares.
The end of the book gives Mark's twelve mantras for success as follows:
1 - Time is More Valuable than Money
2- Commit Random Acts of Kindness
3 - No Balls, No Babies
4 - Work Hard, Play Hard
5 - Don't Let Fear be a Roadblock
6 - Expect the Unexpected, and Always be Ready
7 - It's Okay to Yell and be Yelled at
8 - Everyone gets Down: The Key is How Soon You get Back Up
9 - It's not Whether the Glass is Half Empty or Half Full, it's Who is Pouring the Water
10 - It's Not the Dreaming, it's in the Doing
11 - Pigs get Fat, Hogs get Slaughtered
12 - You Only Have to be Right Once!
The book was published in November of 2011. It is but 73 pages but has great content. Amazon has 876 ratings for a score of 4.5. Goodreads has 3,284 ratings for a 4.02 with 247 reviews. While I'm not in 100% agreement with Mark on some of his thoughts and ideas, there's certainly enough value here to give it a strong rating and recommend it. Now, onto the other books from the sharks on my bookshelf!
There is plenty of good lines you can take from this book. My favorite is "You only have to be right ONCE" I also enjoy Marks personal side he brings to the book. He uses lots of references to his young self such as when he brings up the multiple jobs he's had and his experiences with them.
This is a short review but Mark Cuban is the goat! Read this book if you want motivation!!
This is a well written, fast-paced, well-priced memoir. I only wish I could read all of it. 80% of the Kindle edition is formatted vertically, with letters and words going from top to bottom. I don't know if Cuban or his publisher are trying to be clever by using verticle layout to emphasize the important life principles, but it's so hard to read this vertically it's not worth the trouble. I give up. Sorry this didn't work out. Cute layout = Fail.
