Shark Tank

Barbara Corcoran

Barbara Corcoran achieved straight D's in high school and college, and by the time she was 23, she had already held 20 jobs. But her next job would make her one of the most successful entrepreneurs in the country.

She borrowed $1,000 from her boyfriend and quit waitressing to start a tiny real estate company in New York City. Over the next 25 years she would parlay that loan into a $5 billion real estate business, the largest and best-known brand in the entire sector.

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. They take 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 to "The Today Show" on NBC.
