By the time you probably first heard the name Mark Cuban, he was already a multibillionaire. If Cuban wasn’t a household name when he dropped $285 million on the Dallas Mavericks in 2000, then he certainly was when he took the role of the braggadocios billionaire investor on the reality TV show, Shark Tank.
That’s how Rachel Kuhr became aware of Cuban – seeing him analyze possible investment pitches on TV. But unlike other fans, she wasn’t spellbound by his humor and business savvy. She thought he was missing something: her.
So she wrote him an email and attached her resume. Now the 28-year-old coaches all of Cuban’s consumer goods and services startups from the show.
“I was watching a lot of shark tank and i just felt like there was something that I could bring to the table,” Kuhr says. “Looking at the products and seeing how to make them work better and look better. You know, I never thought anything was going to happen.”
What you’ll hear in this interview:
– What it’s like to work with Cuban
– How she pitched the job
– What Kuhr has learned along the way
