Barbara Corcoran’s credits include straight D’s in high school and college and 20 jobs by the time she turned 23.

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. Corcoran is the author of the best seller “Shark Tales: How I Turned $1,000 into a Billion Dollar Business!” and host of top business podcast “Business Unusual with Barbara Corcoran.” Corcoran is a motivational and inspirational speaker.
