Since the age of 12, Mark has been an entrepreneur. Selling garbage bags door to door, the seed was planted early on for what would eventually become long-term success. After graduating from Indiana University - where he briefly owned the most popular bar in town - Mark moved to Dallas. After a dispute with an employer who wanted him to clean instead of closing an important sale, Mark created MicroSolutions, a computer consulting service. He went on to sell MicroSolutions in 1990 to CompuServe. In 1995, Mark and long-time friend Todd Wagner came up with an internet based solution to not being able to listen to Hoosiers games out in Texas. That solution was Broadcast.com - streaming audio over the internet. In just four short years, Broadcast.com (then Audionet) would be sold to Yahoo for $5.6 billion dollars. In addition to the Mavs, Mark is chairman and CEO of AXS tv, one of ABC's "Sharks" on the hit show Shark Tank, and an investor in an ever-growing portfolio of businesses. He lives in Dallas with wife Tiffany, daughters Alexis and Alyssa, and son Jake.
Fun Side Facts: Mark Cuban is a notably successful entrepreneur and investor known, in part, from his role on the hit ABC show, Shark Tank. Since his acquisition of the Dallas Mavericks in 2000, he has overseen the Mavs competing in the NBA Finals for the first time in franchise history in 2006 - and becoming NBA World Champions in 2011. They are currently listed as one of Forbes' most valuable sports franchises.

"The important thing is not being afraid to take a chance. Remember, the greatest failure is to not try. Once you find something you love to do, be the best at doing it."
It was all about taking control of her life. So Debbi Fields, a young mother with no business experience, opened her first cookie store in Palo Alto, California in 1977. They told her she was crazy. No business could survive just selling cookies. Humble beginnings launched Mrs. Fields® into a worldwide celebrity and made her company the premier chain of cookie and baked goods stores. To extend her vision, Mrs. Fields® began franchising in 1990... It's now the rarest of franchise opportunities.
Headstrong determination. A dynamic personality. A sincere concern for people. They all played a role in Debbi Fields' success. But quality, more than anything, accounts for Mrs. Fields® ' worldwide acceptance. The mission has always been to create the highest quality product possible - every time. That commitment has yielded products like no others, that consumers just can't get enough of.

George Foreman is an unlikely hero in business or sports. As former heavyweight champion of the world, Foreman returned to professional boxing after a ten-year retirement with the idea of regaining his lost crown. In doing so, "he also dealt a crashing blow to conventional wisdom which insisted that middle-aged men had no business pursuing world heavyweight (titles) and instead ought to play with their grandchildren," noted Ebony's Hans J. Massaquoi. Foreman also spent over a decade promoting Meineke Car Care Centers and grew the business to over 1000 franchises. He has now successfully launched a line of environmentally safe cleaning products, exclusive line of personal care products, a prescription shoe for diabetics to prevent amputations, a restaurant franchise called UFood Grille, 10 books, and the list continues to build.
Since the early 1990s, Foreman had found his talent for salesmanship, and by the end of the decade, he was making millions and millions off of his appearances in infomercials being his personable self marketing the George Foreman Lean Mean Grilling Machine. To date, more than 100 million of the units have been sold internationally.
