On working with guest Shark Gwyneth Paltrow
Cuban: “She’s so shrewd. She wasn’t a visitor ‘Shark’ who needed to come on and simply be clearly. Gwen is super shrewd. It’s something to be book shrewd. It was not difficult to see the reason why Goop [Paltrow’s wellbeing and way of life brand and company] is so fruitful. She made statements that I gained from, and that made me think. That is uncommon for me.”
