A few weeks ago, we brought you an exclusive interview with Julie Aigner-Clark at the NY Times Small Business Summit. I also had the privilege of meeting the Keynote speaker there, Barbara Corcoran. This week, I will share with you our one-on-one conversation, including some of my favorite parts of her speech.
My first impression of Barbara was that she was extremely down to earth. Growing up in New York City, it is next to impossible to not have her name branded in your mind as the "Queen of NY Real Estate." However, by the end of our conversation I felt so comfortable, it was as if I had know her for years. Both in our personal conversation and in her speech, she emphasized that everything is really based on perception and most things are actually based on bulls**t. I found this refreshing.
Barbara Corcoran started her real estate brokerage with a $1,000 investment and eventually sold it to Cendant for a reported $66 million. Now she owns a TV production company, and gives speeches and seminars on real estate and entrepreneurship.
