The Hard Way w/ Joe De Sena

Billionaire Mark Cuban joins Joe De Sena on Spartan Up today. The Shark tank star and owner of the Dallas Mavericks talks to Joe about how he would solve some pressing problems from fitness and childhood obesity to marketing Spartan races, to the idea of mandatory service.

How can we solve some of our trickiest problems? Joe asked Mark Cuban how he would handle 8 of the biggest problems our country faces if he were president... 9 if you count getting more of you off the couch and out on the course.

Wonder what it's really like to be a billionaire?  That's where the interview starts.  Next Joe De Sena, the founder of Spartan, asked Mark whether he'd consider running for president of the United States.

If Mark Cuban were president:

How would Mark Cuban handle COVID and get us back to racing and Mavericks games?

How would he handle the gaping political divide between Red & Blue, Left & Right in the US?

How would he solve the current health crisis and get people away from crap food and sugar?

What would Mark Cuban do about childhood obesity?

What does he think about some kind of mandatory service or right of passage in America?

What would he do to create Green Energy?

Does Mark Cuban support term limits?  

How would he improve our education system in the US?

Presidential aspirations aside, Joe also asked Mark how HE would market Spartan Races and help with the mission to get 100 million people off the couch and what he thought about investing in Tesla stock.
