    Barbara Corcoran Speaker Biography

    Business speaker Barbara Corcoran struggled into her mid-20s before turning a tiny personal loan into a billion-dollar empire. A stirring keynote speaker, Barbara Corcoran shares priceless insights gleaned from a life of struggle, determination, and triumph.

    Not every inspiring success begins as a whiz kid. Barbara Corcoran’s drive and talents were a poor fit in school, where she struggled with dyslexia and posted poor grades. They tended to get in the way at work, too, and by her mid-20s, Corcoran had worked 20+ jobs. Finally, she made the bet of her life, borrowing $1,000 to start a real estate firm in New York City.

    After building the Corcoran Group into New York’s largest residential brokerage, Corcoran sold the firm for an astonishing return. Her bestselling book Shark Tales: How I Turned $1,000 into a Billion-Dollar Business tells the full story. It followed 2003’s highly praised If You Don’t Have Big Breasts, Put Ribbons on Your Pigtails: and Other Lessons I Learned from My Mom.

    Corcoran is one of the original sharks on ABC’s Emmy-winning Shark Tank, which premiered in 2009. She has invested in more than 80 businesses, and has helped many of her partners become millionaires themselves.
