Q&A
with Barbara Corcoran

Hello! I’m a businesswoman, investor, author, television personality, and a straight shooter!

What business owner or executive wouldn’t love to pick Barbara Corcoran’s brain about the nitty-gritty of running a company? Listen and learn from these three Q&A sessions with Barbara Corcoran.



Barbara Corcoran’s credits 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. Over the next 25 years Barbara would parlay that $1,000 loan into a $5 billion real estate business building the largest and best known brand in the business.

In 2008, Barbara was asked by Mark Burnett to be an investor on his new show “Shark Tank”. Since then, Barbara invested in 30 plus entrepreneurs in the next 6 years and loves helping each and every one succeed!

In 2015, Barbara was PNC's guest speaker for its Small Business Month webinar titled: How to Grow Your Business and Have Fun Doing ItWatch Replay »

After the webinar, she created these three exclusive videos for PNC to help small business owners understand more key tactics important to succeeding.

Managing Your Cash Flow

"The most important thing you can do for your business is to have a clear view of your cash flow, because it’s your cash flow that determines if you can stay in business."

Planning for Retirement as a Business Owner

"You’re undoubtedly passionate about what you do. If you pretend that building a retirement plan is just another essential part of building your business, you’ll tackle it the same way."

Dealing with Unexpected Costs

"The best way to combat unexpected costs is by talking to a financial advisor who is extremely familiar with both your business and your goals."
