Barbara Corcoran Biography

Barbara Corcoran is founder of The Corcoran Group and a Shark on ABC’s "Shark Tank".

Corcoran is a motivational and inspirational speaker. She is a frequent small business and real estate contributor on every major network. Corcoran has been an investor/Shark for the past nine seasons on ABC’s four-time Emmy award winning show, Shark Tank. As one of the “Sharks”, Barbara has ponied up her own money and invested in over 80 businesses to date, competing to make those deals for all to see, then shepherding them to success.

Her other credentials include straight D’s in high school and college and 20 jobs by the time she turned 23. It was her next job that would make her one of the most successful entrepreneurs in the country: She borrowed $1,000 and quit her job as a waitress to start a tiny real estate company in New York City. The Corcoran Group grew to become one of the largest and best-known brand in the brokerage business.

Corcoran is the author of the best seller “Shark Tales: How I Turned $1,000 into a Billion Dollar Business!” which takes you behind the scenes of her life and business, and her ‘as 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). She is the host of the top business podcast “Business Unusual with Barbara Corcoran.”
