MWBEzone.com‘s Woman Crush Wednesday is one of the most captivating business leaders of our time: Barbara Corcoran. You probably recognize her as the sharp-witted “Shark” investor on ABC‘s Shark Tank who turned a $1,000 loan into a $5 billion business. Barbara’s immense success results from years of hard work, dedication and perseverance. Her determination is an inspiration for women in small business and female entrepreneurs.
Corcoran graduated college in 1971 with a degree in education. She was a teacher for just one year before dedicating herself to becoming her own boss. She co-founded The Corcoran Group, a real estate company in Manhattan, NY. She began exploring her talents in journalism in the mid-1970s, publishing real estate trends in New York City on The Corcoran Report. Our favorite “Shark” is also a real estate contributor to NBC’s Today Show, the host of The Millionaire Broker with Barbara Corcoran on CNBC, and a columnist for More Magazine, New York Daily News, The Daily Review and Redbook. Corcoran has written several books and has been featured in multiple television shows, such as Larry King Live. She is also a business consultant via her consulting and television production business, Barbara Corcoran Inc. Corcoran sold her business to NRT Incorporated in 2001 for $66 million and is currently invested in more than twenty businesses.
