NYSL Promotions Presents Another Reason to Admire Mark Cuban

We at NYSL Promotions are big fans of Mark Cuban, and enjoy watching his antics on Shark Tank whenever we get the chance. However, we couldn’t help but wonder: why does he do it? He has a net worth of over $2.5 billion, and among other lucrative ventures he owns the Dallas Mavericks. So since he’s not doing it for the money, why is he?

Recently in a podcast interview with Bloomberg’s Barry Ritholtz, Cuban explained his attraction to the popular television show. “Shark Tank sends a message, right? I do Shark Tank – the deals are good and I enjoy it – but to me, the importance of doing Shark Tank is more sending the message that the American Dream is alive and well.”

Cuban continued to expand on this idea by saying: “There’s no other platform – whether it’s in school, whether it’s on television – there’s absolutely no other platform where you can go out and reach kids, families, and entrepreneurs, and encourage them, support them, train them, really fire them up, and give them some guidance to go ahead and really start that business.”

Cuban realized the greater impact that his presence on the show made after he put in a guest appearance in season two. He said that he got a number of emails from fans of the show saying that children were learning business basics from watching, and it was then that he realized that Shark Tank presented an opportunity for him to share his passion for business on an international scale.

We at NYSL Promotions applaud Mark Cuban for his efforts to help other business owners succeed, and wish him continued prosperity.
