Mark Cuban: Here’s How You Get Rich (In 9 Steps)
Tech billionaire Mark Cuban is known for being the awesome owner of the NBA’s Dallas Mavericks. He’s also known for making deals on ABC’s hit series “Shark Tank.”
In this interview with Vanity Fair, Cuban draws on these past experiences and breaks down exactly how you get rich in nine clear steps.
And even though Cuban’s worth a cool $3.3B, according to Forbes, the Mavs owner still routinely comes up with ideas for money-making schemes on his very active Twitter.
IMHO The easiest money right now for anyone 14 or older is digging in to be an expert in @Amazon Alexa and @GoogleHomeworld and every compatible device.
Then I would offer to consult and configure the apartment and homes of everyone I know and everyone they know.

Amazon announced in December the company had sold “tens of millions” of devices over the holidays, powered by smart voice assistant, Alexa.
A month later, Google then announced it had sold “more than one Google Home device every second since Google Home Mini started shipping in October.”
It’s ideas like these that helped Cuban build his billion-dollar fortune from $60, the bulk of which came from building—then selling—two technology businesses.

His secret? Learning technology on his own time. At the time, Cuban was selling software at a Dallas store called Your Business Software.
“Every night I would take home a different software manual, and I would read them,” he writes on his blog. “Every night I would read some after getting home, no matter how late.”

Facebook VP Julie Zhuo: This Is The Fastest Way To Get Promoted
It’s the million-dollar question: How do you get promoted so you get that pay raise? And how do you move up the ranks quickly?
Facebook VP of Product Design Julie Zhuo knows a thing or two about that. After graduating from Stanford University, Zhuo interned at Facebook, worked her way up and became a manager at 25.
In her new book, “The Making of a Manager: What to Do When Everyone Looks to You,” in which she shares professional advice she wishes she’d received earlier in her career.
Ten years in, Zhuo is now a top Silicon Valley executive. What’s the best way to advance quickly? Well, here’s what she told CNBC in a recent interview.
Share your goals….
“My advice for how to get your manager to notice you is to be really explicit about what your goals are. What do you care about? Where do you see yourself in three years? What are the skills that you want to learn and grow?”
Speak it into existence…
“Tell your manager, ‘Hey, I’d like to get promoted. What do you think it takes for me?’ What do you think are my gaps? What are the skills that I need to grow, to get better and to be able to take that pay raise or be able to perform at the next level?”
“Think about where you’d like to be in three years or five years. Then try boiling it down. So, if you want to get [somewhere] in three years, what does that mean the next year needs to look like, or the next six months?”
“I think this has to be a dialogue with your manager. It’s something that you talk about together, because maybe you want to do this [thing], but your manager thinks it’s going to be more realistic for you to work on these skills first.”
