Mark Cuban, the “Shark” in Shark Tank, had a giggly time with us while he told us about one of his investments coming out in Walmart later this year: Lipstixx, a lip balm company that changes flavor when you kiss someone.
But when Cuban does business, it’s all about email. “I’ve literally invested $ 4 million in people I’ve never met,” he says while explaining his process of investing in people via email as long as they can prove themselves to him, also via email, by answering his tough as nails questions on their business models.
It may be all about virtual communication for Mark Cuban when it comes to business, but it’s definitely about face time when he is on the basketball court. Cuban has been fined over $ 100,000 by the NBA for various misconducts surrounding the game. “I’m just a fan,” he told us, so we had a little fun and suggested something to help him stay in his seat: duct tape. It’s certainly cheaper than those fines. Take a look.
