One of my hobbies is watching shows about real estate and my favorite expert is Barbara Corcoran. You would definitly recognize her face from the Today Show, as they have her on regularly. She also writes a weekly real estate column for the Daily News Monthly, as well as MORE Magazine and Redbook. And on top of that, she has two great books, If You Don’t Have Big Breasts, Put Ribbons on Your Pigtails, and Nextville: Amazing Places to Live the Rest of Your Life.
Not only do I consistently enjoy her appearances on the Today Show, I am hooked, watching her on ABC’s Shark Tank . It’s so much fun to watch the four sharks duke it out to win a role in a new invention that can potentially make them mounds of money from the ground floor. Most times, Barbara seems to say “I’m out!” She rarely bounces back and forth with her decision to invest. So the thought occurred to me, “How does this chick give advice about taking risks in the housing market, yet she rarely takes risks on inventors that appear on the series Shark Tank?” Please let me know your answers, because I can’t figure her out. All I know is that she seems very, very smart and knows when to take certain risks. Here’s a clip from one of the rare times she actually took a deal on Shark Tank:
Indeed, I found out that Barbara Corcoran took a big chance when she borrowed $1,000 from her boyfriend and quit her job as a waitress to start a tiny real estate company in New York City and became a young entrepreneur. Incredibly, she turned that $1,000 loan into a five-billion-dollar real estate business!
I enjoy listening to her because she keeps it real and draws from her own personal-experiences to make informed and smart decisions. She is enthusiastic about real estate and finding new things to pursue. Barbara Corcoran’s motivates you to think hard by using her down-to-earth approach to success.
