Mark Cuban (born July 31, 1958) is an American billionaire entrepreneur, television personality, and media owner whose net worth is estimated at $ 4.3 billion, according to Forbes, and is ranked No. 177 on the 2020 Forbes 400 list. He is the owner of the Dallas Mavericks professional basketball team of the National Basketball Association (NBA), co-owner of 2929 Entertainment and president of AXS TV. He is also a major "shark" investor in the ABC television series Shark Tank.
Mark Cuban is an avid reader (as are fellow billionaires Bill Gates and Warren Buffett). In fact, Cuban said that his curiosity and constant learning were the keys to his business success.
But Cuban said one book especially stands out for helping him focus on his monetary goals early in his career: "Cashing in on the American Dream: How to Retire at 35.
A 1988 book by Paul Terhorst, an accountant and later author, details how he was able to retire at age 35. The premise of the book is that "if you could save up to $ 1 million and live as a student, you could retire." - Cuban told CNN Money in 2017. Terhorst prescribed spending no more than $ 50 a day (equivalent to about $ 110 today).
After reading it, Cuban decided to save everything he could.

Mark Cuban said on August 16, 2021 that he owns less than $ 500 in Dogecoin, despite being a big proponent of the cryptocurrency.
The billionaire investor announced his Dogecoin holdings on Twitter in response to a user who asked him if he had more Dogecoin or Bitcoin in his portfolio.
As early as March, Cuban's professional basketball team, the Dallas Mavericks, became the first NBA team to accept Dogecoin for tickets and merchandise. Cuban also announced last week to CNBC that the organization will be offering special prices for those who pay with Dogecoin during the Mavericks' summer sale.
"The Mavs have what we sold in merch," said Cuban. "Personally, I have DOGE worth $ 494."
"Any one else notice how the BTC Maxis that scream and yell about possible regulation are the ones holding their breath for BTC ETFs approvals and want heavily regulated funds and pensions to buy as much BTC as they can?" @mcuban Mark Cuban Twitter account.
Today, Cuban is worth more than $ 4 billion and is the star of the ABC Shark Tank show and invests in industries ranging from robotics, solar panels to healthy biscuits.
Mark Cuban lives in Preston Hollow, a very wealthy neighborhood in Dallas, Texas. Other famous residents of the famous city include former President George W. Bush and professional golfer Jordan Spieth. You can even meet a gang of Dallas cowboys that live there from time to time.
Cuba's single-family home is fit for a billionaire. Built in 1997, the 23,676 square foot mansion covers 7 acres and has ten bedrooms and 16 bathrooms. It is valued at an astonishing $ 19 million and covers a huge chunk of the block it is in. He paid $ 17.6 million in 1999.
As you enter the gates, there is a multi-car garage on the right-hand side. It looks more like a house - not a garage too much! The main house is surrounded by a large driveway with a fountain in the center.
The backyard is HUGE - from the big tennis court to the pool and pool house, there's no shortage of play time and space for Mark's kids. In the back yard there is also a guest house in the right corner of the property. Again, this looks more like a normal house than a guest house.
The interior of the house is quite mysterious. What we do know is that immediately after purchasing it, he installed a state-of-the-art audio system. We also know that the house has a wine cellar and 5 bars. Sounds like a hell of a party!
Oh yeah, and his home office. It's a little messy … well, super messy.
Mark Cuban House Laguna Beach
On December 21, 2018, Mark Cuban deposited the whopping sum of $ 19,000,000 on a sprawling mansion in Laguna Beach, California. Located in the exclusive coastal community of Montage Residences, the home is very modern yet so comfortable.
The views of the Pacific Ocean, the walls that open to the porch (chic way of saying Badass Patio) and all the tech you can think of are just the start. All residences have the luxury of shared facilities, which include a personal concierge.
The 7,867 square foot home has 6 bedrooms and 10 bathrooms, all with top notch artwork and brightly colored paintings that I would bet the Cubans got rid of.
The Cuban was born on July 31, 1958 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. The Cuban had a middle-class childhood. His father Norton spent almost half a century working in an auto upholstery workshop. His grandfather, Morris Chobanisky, emigrated from Russia and fed his family by selling goods in the back of the truck. As of September 2021, Mark Cuban is 63 years old.

Cuban met Tiffany Cuban in 1997 in the gym. At the time, she was a 27-year-old advertising professional. While they faced many scheduling conflicts, their relationship worked. Tiffany reportedly said she was very patient with him because Cubans just can't "turn him off".
Mark Cuban became a billionaire by investing in technology, but for all his experience, it's his kids who keep him up to date on the pros and cons of the latest apps. Cuba's eldest daughter Alexis Sofia is 13 and, like many of her age, loves TikTok. She now has over 400,000 subscribers with videos of her dancing to popular songs. But Alexis Sofia's most popular videos include Cuban, having fun participating in next-gen tech by dancing to the songs.
Cuban also learned just how “intellectually stimulating” the Minecraft video game can be from his 11-year-old son Jake, according to CNBC.
