Barbara Corcoran is the Founder of Corcoran Group and the Chairman of Barbara Corcoran, Inc. Her 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, however, that would make her one of the most successful entrepreneurs in the country, 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. Over the next twenty-five years, she would parlay that $1,000 loan into a five-billion-dollar real estate business and the largest and best-known brand in the business.
As a speaker, Ms. Corcoran brings her frontlines experience and infectious energy to each person in the audience. They laugh, cry, and learn how to become more successful. Motivational, inspirational, and sometimes outrageous, her tell-it-like-it-is attitude is a refreshing approach to success.
Currently Barbara Corcoran is the real estate contributor for NBC's TODAY Show where she comments weekly on trends in the real estate market. She is an investor/shark on ABC's reality hit Shark Tank, Fridays at 9pm. In the first season, she bought eight young businesses that she is shepherding to success.
Ms. Corcoran is the author of If You Don't Have Big Breasts, Put Ribbons on Your Pigtails, an unlikely business book that has become a national best-seller. She credits her struggles in school and her mother's kitchen-table wisdom for her innovation and huge success in the business world. The book is a fresh, frank look at how to succeed in life and business and is as heartwarming as it is smart and motivating. In 2008, Springboard Press released her second book, Nextville: Amazing Places to Live the Rest of Your Life, to amazing reviews. Her newest book, Shark Tales: How I Turned $1,000 into a Billion Dollar Business, is scheduled for release in February 2011.
Barbara Corcoran writes a weekly real estate column for the Daily News and monthly columns for MORE Magazine and Redbook.
