How to Win at the Sport of Business

How To Win at The Sport Of Business is Mark Cuban’s book in which he chronicles his life experiences in business and sports. It starts with Mark Cuban’s story, how he started as a salesman at Your Business Software and started a company called MicroSolutions after getting fired. Later parts of the book focus on the lessons he learned along the way and his advice to entrepreneurs. Here are some quotes from the book:

  • In business, to be a success, you only have to be right once.
  • Before I do any of the many things that I get asked to do, I have one simple question I ask myself. When I’m 90, will I smile when I think back, or will I frown and regret not having done it?
  • Pay up for people in your core competencies. Get the best. Outside the core competencies, hire people that fit your culture but are cheap.
  • The worst evaluator of talent is a player trying to evaluate himself.
  • How wisely you use your time will have far more impact on your life and success than any amount of money.

Overall, it’s a short e-book with useful advice.
