Barbara’s Rags to Riches Story
How do you turn a $1,000 loan into a five-billion dollar business? According to self-made real estate empress and TV personality Barbara Corcoran, you do it by learning how to fail well. Barbara tells the story of how, armed with a $1000 loan and her own gritty determination, she quit her job as a waitress to start a tiny real estate company in New York City and turned that company into a multi-billion dollar business. Barbara describes what it’s like to go from a tiny start up to New York City’s largest real estate company to a major TV personality as the real estate contributor to the NBC TODAY Show and a shark on ABC’s Shark Tank, and how she overcame the many obstacles along the way. A highly motivational and hugely entertaining success story.

Barbara answers questions from your audience or by moderated Q&A. From building a brand to raising 2 kids to behind the scenes on Shark Tank, nothing is off limits.
Barbara Corcoran’s credentials include straight D’s in high school and college and twenty jobs by the time she turned twenty-three. It was her next job that would make her one of the most successful entrepreneurs in the country when she took a $1000 loan to start The Corcoran Group.
As one of the “Sharks” on ABC’s hit TV show, Shark Tank, Barbara has ponied up her own money and invested in twenty-two businesses, competing to make those deals for all to see, then shepherding them to success.
Her newest book, Shark Tales, takes you behind the scenes of her life and business and her ‘seen on TV’ venture capitalism. Barbara is famously brash and blunt, bold and courageous, and a brilliant identifier of opportunity and talent (often invisible to others).
