Inspirational quote by Barbara Corcoran.

⁠❛ My best successes came on the heels of failures ❜⁠

Who is this #remarkablewoman?

Barbara Ann Corcoran (born March 10, 1949) is an American businesswoman, investor, speaker, consultant, syndicated columnist, author, and television personality.

According to Celebrity Net Worth, Corcoran started her first business, a real estate firm called the Corcoran Group, with a $1,000 loan in 1973, two years after graduating from St. Thomas Aquinas College with a degree in education.

“The story of Barbara Corcoran is the stuff of entrepreneurial lore. Three decades ago, she quit her waitress job, borrowed $1,000 from her boyfriend, and started a real estate shop that eventually blossomed into one of New York City’s largest residential brokerages generating more than $4 billion in gross sales annually,” Bloomberg reported in 2005.

Corcoran is a columnist for More, The Daily Review, and Redbook. She has written several books, and has been featured on Larry King Live, NBC's Today show, hosts The Millionaire Broker with Barbara Corcoran on CNBC, writes a weekly column in the New York Daily News, and is a speaker and consultant.

Corcoran has dyslexia and was labeled the ‘dumb kid’ by her teachers and classmates. According to Corcoran, the bullying "drove her to work harder and learn the skills she needed to succeed"
