'60 Minutes': Mark Cuban Video Transcript
>> Ready to make some noise tonight?
>> Mark Cuban has always been the consummate salesman. Even growing up in a blue-collar neighborhood near Pittsburgh.
>> What was your first business venture?
>> Selling garbage bags door-to-door. I mean, who's going to say no to a 12-year-old kid selling garbage bags. When I was in high school, I was short, fat kid that was into business. I mean, you know, it wasn't like I had hot dates or could get a date. I had to beg for a prom date, basically.
>> Those ventures helped Cuban pay for his first year at Indiana University, where he set out to get a degree in business using one money-making scheme after another.
>> I gave disco lessons to sorority houses for $25 an hour. You know, back then -- that still is a lot of money. And then I paid for school with a chain letter. I would wake up in the morning, go to my mailbox, and there would be checks there. And that's how I paid for my junior year.
>> That was a [Inaudible] scheme.
>> Absolutely. Just like the stock market today. ^M00:00:53 [ Ticking clock ]
