I just read a news blurb about how Kevin Hart and Mark Cuban shared a missed opportunity. They both passed up on the chance to invest in Uber when it was just getting started.
Hart said that missed opportunity haunts him “to this day.”
According to the blurb, Kevin said he “scoffed at investing in the ride-sharing business because the idea of strangers picking up strangers and driving them places sounded like Murderville to him at the time.” That was on his own talk show, Hart To Heart, during an interview with Mark Cuban. He told Mark that missing that opportunity “makes me so mad.”
Apparently Hart was asked to put $50,000-75,000 into Uber. And it appears that if had, his investment would “now be worth more than $100 million.”
Wow! Can you imagine? That’s around a 200,000% ROI.
And as tough as that missed opportunity sounds, apparently Mark Cuban had it even worse.
The blurb I read said he, “was approached by Uber co-founder Travis Kalanick to invest in the early stages of the company. But Cuban thought the initial valuation of $10 million was too high. So, he offered to invest at a $5 million valuation, but never heard back from Kalanick. If I [had] given him $250,000 on a $5 million or $10 million valuation, it’d be [worth] billions.”
Yikes! That’s an even more ginormous ROI. Of course, I don’t think either guy is hurting. But still. Those are huge missed opportunities. And I bet, no matter how well off they are, they’d love to be able to go back for a do over.
But do overs, in real life, are rare.
And that’s why it’s vitally important to give yourself the best opportunity possible for success. Especially when you’re just starting out. Or starting over. And, if that’s you, I wrote a book for you.
It’s available on Amazon.
It’s a small investment compared to what my one-on-one clients have paid me. And certainly way smaller than what Kevin Hart and Mark Cuban were asked to invest.
Plus, an investment in my RondaReady System book can pay for itself over and over. But, it’s not a passive kinda thing. It’s for go-getters who need some help to build a business better and faster.
So, if that’s you, use this link to get yourself a copy on Amazon. Give yourself a better chance at success. And don’t wake up one day with investment regrets like Kevin and Mark shared. Make an investment in YOU today.
