SBE Featured Speaker: Barbara Corcoran

Barbara Corcoran’s credits include straight Ds in high school and college, while moving through 20 different jobs by the time she turned 23. It was her next position that would make her one of the most successful entrepreneurs in the country. Borrowing $1,000 and quitting her job as a server, Corcoran started a tiny real estate company in New York City. Over the next 25 years Barbara parlayed that $1,000 loan into a $5 billion mega real estate empire, building the largest and best-known brand in the business.

Corcoran is also the author of the best seller "Shark Tales: How I Turned $1,000 into a Billion Dollar Business!" and hosts a top podcast: "Business Unusual with Barbara Corcoran." Corcoran now tours the business community as a motivational and inspirational speaker, serving as a frequent contributor on every major network. Corcoran has been an investor and leading Shark for the past thirteen seasons on ABC’s four-time Emmy award winning show, "Shark Tank." And she has invested in over 80 businesses to date.
