Barbara Corcoran’s credentials include straight D’s in high school and college and twenty jobs by the time she turned twenty-three. It was her next job that would make her one of the most successful entrepreneurs in the country when she took a $1000 loan to start The Corcoran Group.
As one of the “Sharks” on ABC’s hit TV show, SHARK TANK, Barbara has ponied up her own money and invested in twenty-two businesses, competing to make those deals for all to see, then shepherding them to success.
Her newest book, SHARK TALES, takes you behind the scenes of her life and business and her ‘seen on TV’ venture capitalism. Barbara is famously brash and blunt, bold and courageous, and a brilliant identifier of opportunity and talent (often invisible to others).

"Barbara Corcoran is one of the most dynamic speakers I have ever had the pleasure of working with. She captivated our audience, made them laugh and gave real word advice that not only motivated and inspired but will have life-changing impact on our attendees. Additionally, Barbara was an absolute joy to work with. She is a consummate professional who I cannot recommend highly enough.” -- Chief Marketing Officer GKIC
Barbara was the guest speaker at our Annual Sales Meeting of about 200 publishers and sales professionals from all over North America. She exceeded our expectations through her frank and realistic discussion of the industry we sell to, which of course she knows extremely well. She shared her thoughts, in her easy and entertaining way, on the characteristics of the most successful people she knows and how quickly they are able to pick themselves up and move on after rejection or defeat. In my opinion, Barbara was a total home run for us. -- President of the Real Estate Division, Network Communications, Inc.
