"Don't ask for help," says billionaire Mark Cuban, owner of the Dallas Mavericks.
The "Shark Tank" star spoke at the iCONIC conference in Chicago on Tuesday to discuss his very particular brand of entrepreneurial audacity, giving audience members three tips for new business owners.
No. 1: Sales
"Sales cures all," Cuban said. "There has never been a business that has succeeded without sales."
No. 2: Just do it already
"The second thing is, this will be kind of counterintuitive, but don't ask for help. I think one of the things that is challenging new companies right now is that they want a mentor. They want a tutor. Get out there. Ready. Fire. Aim. Go."
Getting off the couch and going to work is key, he said, a little more colorfully.
