Mark Cuban — you’ve seen him on ABC’s “Shark Tank” alongside his fellow sharks Lori Greiner, Robert Herjavec, Barbara Corcoran, and Daymond John for over 10 years now. He is currently worth over 4 billion dollars and the only billionaire on Shark Tank.
He owns the Dallas Mavericks basketball team, and has so since 2000. Vanity Fair caught up with Mark to find out just what a busy billionaire does in his every day life. We are going to break it down for you now.
Mark Cuban’s Daily Schedule – The Break Down!
6:30 – Wake Up
Mark is like a lot of us! The first thing he does when he wakes up in the morning is…you guessed it, he reaches for his whole. He starts running through his many emails he has received overnight.
Next up! Breakfast
After he reviews his emails, he goes to the kitchen for breakfast. He takes his coffee decaf and has his Alyssa’s cookies. Yes, this is one of Mark’s investments, but why does he like them so much? Not only are they delicious but Mark says, “you can eat a package of 8 and they’re only 360 calories.”
They are available on Amazon. Try them for yourself!
Shower is next on the list!
After he takes his morning shower, he says “I get really dressed up. I put on a pair of sweatpants.” He goes on to say, “If it’s an important day, I’ll put on a blue Mavs shirt, and if it isn’t as important of a day, I’ll put on a green Mavs shirt.”
8:00 – Drop daughter off at school
Mark likes driving his daughter to school. He says his daughter enjoys listening to hip hop music so when they’re driving to school together he will crank it up all the way and roll down the windows. Yes, just to help embarrass her and it works as she buries her head into her lap.
8:30 – Time for fitness!
If it’s Monday, Wednesday or Friday he is heading off to the gym. You can find him shooting hoops. He admits he can’t jump as high as he used to but he’s still on it.
9:30 – Shower
After his basketball session, he hops in the shower at home. Then he starts working on emails again. Between emails and reading online, it takes up nearly 3 to 4 hours a day. He also knows the importance of reading, so he tries to pick up a book and do 30 to 45 minutes of light reading per day.
Since Mark relies so heavily on email to make his business go round, he doesn’t own just one phone. He has 3 phones!
Wondering how many emails Mark Cuban would get in a day? He reveals he receives around 700 per day! However, this doesn’t seem to bother Mark at all and there is a reason for it. He said, “I’d rather do 700 or more emails than sit in long, tedious and boring meetings.”
3:30 – Mavs Game Day
He will head down to the Mavericks arena in Dallas. This is his time to play on the court. He reveals one of the dreams that came true in owning the basketball team is that he gets to come down and shoot hoops on the court. This really helps him destress from his day. He will stay for the game most of the time and if it isn’t a school night, the whole family comes down to the center.
7:00 – Dinner
If there isn’t a game, Mark goes home to eat with the family for dinner. He said this is a busy time, everyone is running around. Both of his daughters play basketball.
9:30 – Get on Elliptical
He uses this time after dinner to get on the elliptical machine for about an hour. If there are games on television he wants to catch, he will stay up. Otherwise, bed is next.
11:00 – Check emails one last time
11:30 – Bedtime
