Who the heck is this guy? Chobani started on a loan, idiot. It’s the fastest growing company in the entire United States. They sell yoghurt. It’s not the matter of how you start. It’s the matter of how you make and sell the product.
Mark your Jewish privilege is how you lucked up. Can’t speak for the gentiles.

If I want to start a real estate development company then what do I do?
Using loans is a financing tool that is useful in many situations. There are also many types of loans, some do not cause a business borrower to be personally liable. Plus many businesses are started with just a small amount of capital and the loan is not that large. There have been many successful business owners who started by using credit cards. Not true to say only a moron starts a business on a loan. I was a business consultant turnaround expert and provided management, marketing, and venture capital financing. Cuban, you are wrong!!!!!!

Very funny he would say that morons would start money with borrowed money. The founders of YouTube started youtube with borrowed money on a credit card and sold YouTube to Google for 1.9 billion in 15 months!!!! That Was a faster fortune than you ever made Cuban...

Don't get a loan you're a moron if you get a loan to start a business says the billionaire who borrowed money to start a business what an arrogant ass hole and I like you Mark Cuban but that was pretty shity thing to say billionaire arrogance

Maybe he is talking lessons the learned the hard way. The advice he is giving is the best case scenario. I started my company with no money down. I just put money into equipment needed or rented equipment until I could afford to buy it. Over %70 of businesses fail within the first 2 years. Bringing a monthly note into a business that doesn’t have established customers, or product orders means your starting with no guarantee of income, and a monthly payment. If you went into a business with large amount of work that is promised or contracted. I would feel more comfortable taking a loan. But liquid is the best way to get going.

he didn't even answer the question? so how are we supposed to get the money then? Youre a moron
DarthVadent (18 days ago)
All of these condescending, self-proclaimed entrepreneurs often enthusiastically opine on the virtues of "hard work", flaunting their business acumen by admonishing against those who apply for loans to start their business, as if you didn't need capital to establish one in the first place (Hint: You do) whilst also disregarding and delegitimizing the barriers to entry, as if all that was needed was pure, unadulterated gumption and mind-numbingly vacuous motivational speaking seminars. They never delve into any rigorous, logistical detail on effective strategies based on statistical data or empirical evidence. It's all just "Bob in Pennsylvania left his 9-5 corporate job and did XYZ after reading my book and now he owns 50 businesses and makes 500 gorillion dollars a year." That's nice, but how about presenting some reliable, reproducible and scientifically rigorous analysis on how to start a business instead of citing one personal anecdote after another?

My parent’s started a restaurant business on a loan 10 years ago and it’s striving. It’s really an “all up to you” type of lifestyle. There’s no one size fits all linear path

I financed one of my first companies with credit cards. When the company failed is was left with hundreds of thousands of dollars in debt. Bootstrapping your business is the only way to go.

So I guess Mark Cuban is a moron since he started a business with a $15,000 loan himself. Yeah, I'm going to listen to a moron that makes complete sense.
Azriel Leyva (1 month ago)
This advise isn't fair. Mark borrowed $15,000 from his college friend Evan Williams to open his first business, Motleys. He was successful and the college bar became a hit. The lesson is have wealthy friends and family who believe in you. He's a brilliant man but he wont be what he is if he didn't have the network of friends in his early years.

I started doing business from 1$ and after 3 months and now I'm still struggling.

Cyban retained capital to start businesses by simply saving. He literally sacrificed he life. He lived with several guys and ate ketchup sandwiches. Instead of getting in to debt he saved. Most people want a big pile of money because we are consumers. Cuban has done the work that most people arent willing to do.

just because he got a loan does that make him any less successful? he needs capital to start a business. He's a great role model and very few people can do what he does!
Marc-André Poulin (1 month ago)
To start a business you may have an income with a % to invest or a big amount on reserve. If you start on a loan there is nothing to save the day if anything happens

I wish you talked more about start up money. I too don't want to get a loan, however I need a location, I need staff I need supplies...so where and how do I get the money to do this?

I got a western Union MTCN of 6000$ in my name successfully, without paying any upfront fee. I got the help from an old friend who introduced me to the western Union offers. He also picked up 10,000% successfully, the risk was worth trying. And it was amazing, until now I've been earning monthly. All thanks to Thepromptcybers@gmail. Com They are legit. I stopped wasting my time with non professionals

MrBobDug (2 months ago)
.... he said small business owner. Further, by loan he means for example an above 40k bank loan... what he means is that a loan won't make you successful or scalable. You need many other elements added into the formula...He has exaggerated the statement on purpose. That's why he's a billionaire, people are not even catching the play even though he spelled it out for them in the last sentence he spoke
I tried to get a loan from the bank they shot me down. Now the same bank wants me to open a checking account and open a credit card 🤔🖕🏼

I got a personal automobile loan approved from my bank for a vehicle. I was going to use this vehicle for my business as a commercial driver. Only to find out I'm not allowed to do that with a personal loan. I have to obtain a business loan which for a startup who will be a sole proprietor is absolutely impossible to do. I've called 10 companies all over the country and they have all said the exact same thing "do you have your business set up already"? I said no I don't, I'm a start-up I want to start a business. well we can't loan you any money unless you've been in business for at least 2 years. Well if I've been in business already I probably wouldn't need a startup loan now would I? The last young lady I spoke to told me to get a loan from a family member or save up the $25,000 I need on my own. It's like the system is rigged to steer you one way or the other.

I used to think he was funny but maybe he just don't know, My parents just BARLEY scrape by every month. Literally 10 dollars in a 50 year old mans bank account and he works on Sundays and never takes a break. He is about to buy the cabinet store that he has been working at for 12 years and we need some type of money for that. How does he expect us to do anything? So what he is trying to say is don't even try you poor, dumb, retard I'm the best? That's all i get out of this video.

MisterWhite (4 months ago)
Only morons do not understand - that when you come from a poor background, a loan can sometimes be the only chance to ever start a business and become self employed. But what is needed if the right mix of possibilities to ensure making at least the loan back. Pure economists call it the break even point. Well...based on that a businesswoman or - man needs to come up with the mix in where you can pay the loan back, and still live of the income after all costs are payed. This also needs vision and chance. And no single business owner build out his business without any forms of credits. No business owner ever made no mistakes either. So also in the mix should be the right person and personalities so call it the right character to run a business in responsible manner we call it a potential employee before the person started lol. Not everyone should start a business, but that is a very different thing than the title assumes. So sure call him a guru, I call it a dumb fuck.

Idiot. Absolutely a big idiot. I suffered and struggled so much and worked days and many nights. Did not go out except once or twice a month for coffee and couldn't find a way out except after I took a 200k loan. Yes that's 200,000 dollars from family and friends and banks. I started a business that I knew well (I was employed in that field) and I paid back my 200k in 2 years. I am my own hero. Screw Cuban. You guys can do it too. Just go for it like I did. I was scared as hell but I did it.

Not everyone can have nothing at all but a fantastic business idea and expect to KNOW EVERYONE IN THE INDUSTRY -- let alone know where all the money people are who are willing to invest. Not everyone grows up in a family of money or a family of connections. SOme people are actually doing everything they can to get out of the part of the country where NO MONEY FLOWS WERE RICH PEOPLE PINCH EVERY MARK FRANK YEN POUND OR RED CENT THAT THEY HAVE and they arent willing to help other. Hell, IM DIVORCED -- but my home is 100% paid off, My Car is 100% Paid Off, My Bills are 100% Paid off and I still cant get a loan of any kind let alone get a loan to start a business. Some of us have to do what we have to do. SOrry we are soooo stupid.
