She’s also a star on ABC’s reality hit Shark Tank, on which she buys young businesses and shepherds them to success. Corcoran is the author of several books, including If You Don’t Have Big Breasts, Put Ribbons on Your Pigtails, a national bestseller, and Shark Tales, which hit the #1 business book ranking on Amazon.
My conversation with Barbara on My Quest for the Best illuminated her unique perspective on entrepreneurship. We discussed what skills and personality traits angel investors look for in entrepreneurs, what female entrepreneurs need more of in order to stand out and be successful, and the one characteristic that has no substitute in business (or in life). She also talked about the role of luck in business and what people must do to capitalize on that luck.
I highly recommend listening to this interview with Barbara to help you grow your own business.
