Barbara Corcoran

Real Estate Entrepreneur and Mogul, Angel Investor, Co-Host, Shark Tank and Author

Barbara Corcoran's credits include straight Ds 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: She borrowed $1,000 and quit her job as a waitress to start a tiny real estate company in New York City. Over the next 25 years, Barbara would parlay that $1,000 loan into a $5 billion real estate business, building the largest and best-known brand in the business.

Barbara is the author of the bestseller Shark Tales: How I Turned $1,000 into a Billion Dollar Business. She is also the real estate contributor for NBC's TODAY and a frequent contributor to every major network. Audiences find Barbara’s tell-it-like-it-is style to be very motivating, and she inspires them with innovative tools to grow their businesses, giving them important insight on leadership and practical strategies to lead teams to greatness.
