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.

BajaFist (7 days ago)
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.

These guys are just about making bold statements. They don't care if they're right or wrong... Typical spotlight hungry businessmen.
B.J.F. van Groeningen (9 days 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.

Tariq Freitekh (24 days ago)
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.
James Mason (25 days ago)
So sick of Cuban he got rich selling a internet sports radio show to Yahoo!. It ended up completely failing. He pretty much won the lottery. Remember when he tried to scare anyone from voting for trump by saying the stock market will definitely crash if he wins. He is a fucking idiot

Imagine how stupid Mark would feel if a company as big as Walmart was started with a loan. Oh right, Walmart *was* started with a loan. Now the Walton's collective wealth makes Cuban look like a welfare recipient.

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.

As a professional business valuator the #1 thing we know is that the cost of debt is cheaper than the cost of equity. People should vested in their business and use their own money to get started, but once your business has traction and can generate cash flow then get debt financing...don't give away equity from your business! Get a loan from a friend if you need funds, because in the long run giving away equity will affect how much return you get when you go to sell your business.
Levi Lemon (2 months ago)
Wow, you can start 99% of business's without a loan??? I picked the wrong industry.
The Transducer (2 months ago)
Here's what you do. Go to a business broker and ask them to help you buy a business. Get a loan from an alternative lender. Have the broker do the work for you. Run your business like a boss and pay off that loan, then sell the business. Move on.
Ehimwenma Eweka (2 months ago)
Starting a business without a loan can be done! I believe that Mark should have framed his point in a better way or at the least clarify with examples of the types of businesses that do not require loans/capitals to initiate. That statement was very insulting to many business owners out there who had to borrow to make their dreams come true and it is a half true statement. There are lots of people in here who have the right ideas of acquiring that upfront start-up fund through personal savings, equity or through partnership (hopefully they don't screw you over in the process). The question is, what type of business are you looking to start? Some businesses require you to have a form of a capital, large or small (franchises or small barbershops, a small daycare); while other simply require ideas and effort to bring them to life (i.e Eric Nicksdaddy's Nusery plants business or mowing lawns with your own lawn mowers you've already had for your own home or snow removal business with your own snow machine that you bought for your home. Cheers!

I don't believe this to be true, sometimes all you need is a way to get started. If you have a great idea the loan will pay off itself...

mark cuban was very lucky and skilled somewhat too, sadly now as often and most of his peers, he too became too arrogant and blind, otherwise he would have taken the deal before amazon and make 25 000 % (yes 25 THOUSAND % ) in a mere of 4 years and adding an unicorn or maybe soon a decacorn (only 16 in the world) to his list of successes :)

Fuck this dumbass, do what works for you. If it beats signing your company away to a VC then so be it.

Many people use drug money to obtain capital. Then eventually build from that.
LordGalenOfSnipeMe (2 months ago)
Does Mark Cuban think money just falls out of thin air? Drive, determination, hard work, etc. don't buy store fronts, equipment, inventory, etc. and it damn sure doesn't pay employees, insurance, utilities, repairs, etc. You can have all the hard work in the world, but if you're dead broke, you're not starting a business.

Bullshit. If your business plan is solid, market is there, and you have the devotion then by all means take a small business loan. I grew my company with one. This guy has billions and forgot what it's like climbing your way up!
Michael BATMAN Keaton (3 months ago)
Just fix your credit and have the same amount your asking for saved up so if there's a problem you could cover it or if u do get the loan figure out what ur monthly payments would be and save a year's worth of monthly loan payments he's right it can be done but it's a game a chess

I know a billionaire who started off with $ 5.000,00 loan just about 17 years ago. Today, everything he touches turns into gold. For your information, he attends for the name of Flavio Augusto and he owns Orlando City football team besides other major businesses. Good luck raising capital for your business idea without borrowing it.
