    Mark Cuban: "I have started multi-million dollar businesses with less than $1000."

    That is what Mark Cuban said as he gave his contestants an envelope with $1000 in it on his television program last week.
    My question is, is it realy possible to start a multi-million dollar business with less than $1000?(or any sort of sucessfull business with that amount?) Or, is Mark Cuban a lucky blow hard that has "made it" and is rubbing the worlds face in dog doodoo?

    Depends on the industry. Mark was there at the right place and the right time of the IT industry to make his first million as a sales person. Then he got lucky on when he sold to Yahoo at the right price. You can't do that in the restaurent business for example, you need start-up capitals. Don't forget, in the dot com days, Cuban didn't have to turn a profit to make his billion dollars.

    Look at Micheal Dell, the guys who started Yahoo, google, just to name a few, they all started off with something small.
