"There Are No Shortcut To Success" Mark Cuban by MiguelKingII(m): 9:59am On Sep 27, 2017
You remember Mark Cuban the guy that started his business with $20 bill and now worth's billions of dollars

This is what he has to say about been successful....

Entrepreneur Mark Cuban started with just a few $20 bills in his pocket.

At age 23, he graduated from Indiana University and set off for Texas "with $60, hole in my floorboard, case of oil in the trunk & a floor to sleep on in Dallas," he tweeted in July.

By age 32, the entrepreneur had already earned his first million: He had sold his first company, MicroSolutions, to CompuServe for $6 million.

Less than 10 years later, he sold his second company, Broadcast.com, to Yahoo for $5.6 billion and became a self-made billionaire.

Cuban has some tips for those looking to build wealth, including what not to do. "Don't pursue any get-rich quick schemes", he wrote on his blog in 2008: "There are no shortcuts. NONE."

He continues: "The less money you have, the more likely someone will come at you with some scheme. … Please ignore them. Always remember this: If a deal is a great deal, they aren't going to share it with you."

Cuban doesn't broadcast his deals and he suggests being skeptical of anyone who does. "I keep them all to myself," he writes. "If the person selling the deal was so smart, they would be rich beyond rich rather than trolling the streets looking to turn you into a sucker.

"There are no shortcuts."
