Mark Cuban

- Unscripted mindset: when his boss told him to stay at the office, he decides to go make a $20,000 sale to a client, figuring he was doing the guy a favor. When his boss fired him for insubordination, he poached the client and started Microsolutions, which he later sold for millions.

- True grit: allegedly stayed up for 36 hours straight coding when working on his business.
