From Barbara Corcoran’s official biography:

Motivational, inspirational and sometimes outrageous, Barbara Corcoran’s tell-it-like-it-is attitude is a refreshing approach to success.

Barbara Corcoran’s early credentials include straight D’s in high school and college and 20 jobs by the time she turned 23. It was her next job that would make her one of the most successful entrepreneurs in the country, when when she borrowed $1,000 from her boyfriend and quit her job as a waitress to start a tiny real estate company in New York City, The Corcoran Group. She parlayed that loan into a $5 billion real estate business that she sold in 2001 for $66 million.

“Don’t you dare underestimate the power of your own instinct.” —Barbara Corcoran

Barbara is the real estate contributor to NBC’s Today show, where she comments weekly on trends in the real estate market. She is also an investor/”shark” on ABC’s reality hit Shark Tank, now in its third season. Barbara bought 11 new businesses on the show and is now shepherding them to success.

Barbara is the author of three books including her most recent, Shark Tales, detailing her inspiring true story and her best advice for anyone starting a business.
