25 Awesome Mark Cuban Quotes From #BSIcuban

I've had two heroes in my life. During my childhood it was Michael Jordan for obvious reasons. I wanted to be in the NBA more than anything in the world. But with a 5'8" frame, the odds were stacked heavily against me.

As an adult and serial entrepreneur I'm not ashamed to say that Mark Cuban is my hero. Today, I had the pleasure of attending a live interview of Mark Cuban, presented by the folkes at Blue Sky Innovative. During this incredibly inspiring interview, Mark Cuban said something that was monumental to me,"Business is a sport". Holy Sh#t! He is so right. I grind it out everyday fighting off the competition and constantly making strategic moves. In addition to that eye-opening quote, Mark said about 24 other things that were so important that I rushed to write this post so I could to share them with you.
