As Mark Cuban's Net Worth Neared $1 Billion, He Sat Naked at Computer Refreshing Until It Hit

Mark Cuban was a guest on entrepreneur and Yahoo Finance contributor James Altucher’s podcast (embedded above) earlier this week. The Mavericks owner discussed his start-up app Cyber Dust, which is a messaging app in which texts disappear forever after 30 seconds. Cuban also brought up the recently-launched Xspire, which, amongst other things, allows you to set expiration times for your tweets to automatically delete.

Towards the end, Altucher asked Cuban whether his first million or billion was more satisfying. Valleywag transcribed the response:

The million was fun because it was a drinking million, right. It was, “On my god, I’m going to love this, my life has changed, but I got to keep on working because I haven’t hit my goals yet, and there’s so much more I want to do.”

The billion was, “I can’t fucking believe it.” Literally, I was sitting in front of a computer, naked, hitting the refresh because we were close, waiting until my net worth hit that billion when the stock price got to a certain point, and then I kinda screamed and jumped around and then got dressed.”

After that, Cuban said he still had work to do to make sure he cleared a billion net of taxes, and fulfill the expectations of the public shareholders.
