Barbara Corcoran's credits include straight D's in high school and college and 20 jobs by the time she'd turned 23. It was her next job that would make her one of the most successful entrepreneurs in the country.
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. Over the next 25 years she'd parlay that $1,000 loan into a five-billion-dollar real estate business and the largest and best known brand in the business.
Corcoran is the author of If You Don't Have Big Breasts, Put Ribbons on Your Pigtails and Shark Tales, unlikely business books that have become national bestsellers. The books take a fresh, frank looks at how to succeed in life and business, and are as heartwarming as they are smart and motivating.
Corcoran is a motivational and inspirational speaker and is the real estate contributor for "The Today Show" on NBC.
She recently released another book Shark Tales which includes material from her experience on Shark Tank.
