ABC’s “Shark Tank” judges Robert Herjavec and Mark Cuban shared valuable career advice. Both judges may not seemingly see things eye to eye, but they were able to have a good conversation over lunch, wherein Cuban gave an interesting piece of advice to Herjavec.
According to CNBC, it is such a rare moment for the multi-millionaire owner of cyber security company Herjavec Group and the billionaire entrepreneur to get along. And it is good to know that one way or another, they were able to find a common ground.
"[Cuban] looks and me says 'You know? You're a good guy. And so I'm going to give you a piece of advice. You have to dream bigger,” shared Herjavec.
Cuban pointed out to Herjavec that he is very protective of his downside, and that it is time for him to think of the upside. It is common to find entrepreneurs who are not risk takers. They have so much fear of the downside, to the extent that it is already holding them back.
Herjavec said that focusing on the upside does pay off. If you think that you have more potential to achieve success and excellence, then you go for it. That is why in his recent conversation with Cuban, he reminded him of taking chances, to try new opportunities rather than worry too much about the risk that goes with it.
Just “think of the upside,” said Cuban.
Per Business Insider, Herjavec and Cuban shared some pieces of advice for entrepreneurs. Cuban said that it is important to pay bigger focus on the profit that your venture can bring you. As he explained, “You have to follow the green, not the dream." And as for Herjavec, a simple yet meaningful advice, “A goal without a timeline is just a dream.”
Meanwhile, Jobs & Hire reported that the founder and CEO of Herjavec Group shared some tips on how you can protect yourself from hackers.
