Barbara Corcoran

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).

Barbara’s rags-to-riches story

After failing at 22 jobs, Barbara Corcoran borrowed $1,000 from a boyfriend, quit her job as a diner waitress, and started a tiny real estate office in New York City. Using the unconventional lessons she learned from her homemaker mom, she gradually built a $6 billion dollar business, The Corcoran Group. Highly motivational and sensationally entertaining, Barbara Corcoran’s recipes for success are chock-full of real-life lessons. Not to be missed!

 

Leading your team to greatness

Barbara Corcoran built the largest residential company in New York City, The Corcoran Group, and she did it by choosing the right people. Barbara shares her best strategies for getting teams motivated and moving forward, for hiring the right people and firing the wrong ones, for creating an atmosphere of fun, and for forging ahead when the chips are down. Barbara’s unique and practical lessons will help salespeople, managers, and business owners take their businesses to the next level.

 

What are the Sharks really like?

Take a five-minute speed ride behind the scenes of the ABC hit reality show, Shark Tank. Do all the Sharks get along, what happens when the cameras are off, and what is Kevin really like? Are we really investing our own money and do we get information on the businesses before we meet the trembling entrepreneurs on set? Barbara takes you behind the scenes at Sony Studios for all the shenanigans, bloopers, and private information that the other Sharks don’t want you to know.
