    Reinventing Yourself at Any Age

    • No one knows more about reinvention than D-student turned real estate maven turned TV personality Barbara Corcoran.
    • Barbara first ‘reinvented’ herself when her business partner and boyfriend ran off with her secretary. He swore she’d never succeed without him and, although she believed him for a moment, Barbara ultimately triumphed by creating The Corcoran Group.
    • When she sold that business thirty years later for $66 million, she was surprised to learn that simply riding off into the sunset wasn’t for her. Reinventing herself again at age 55 turned out to be a daunting challenge – she had trouble picking out what to wear in the morning, let alone picking up the phone to ask for what she wanted, she was so unsure of who she was.
    • Today, as a shark on the new ABC reality show Shark Tank and the real estate contributor to NBC’s TODAY Show, Barbara is a walking, talking success story whose star is still on the rise. She happily shares her failures, her successes, and the obstacles she learned to overcome in an inspiring story that will kindle a flame in the heart of anyone searching to come into their own as a mature, powerful individual.
