She had few luxuries, but she was blessed with a mother who taught her to have self-confidence. Barbara's mom didn't know much about business, but she understood how the world works and how to make the most of what you've got. After failing at 22 other jobs, Barbara borrowed $1,000 from a boyfriend, quit her job as a diner waitress, and started a tiny real-estate office in New York City.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
Yes - it was well written, entertaining and informative
Who was your favorite character and why?
I enjoy Barbara Corcoran and all that she has achieved in her career.
Any additional comments?
I think readers should be aware that Barbara Corcoran's prior two books "Use What You've Got" and "If You Don't Have Big Breasts, Put Ribbons On Your Pigtails: And Other Lessons I Learned From My Mom" are an exact repeat of the first half of Shark Tales! Buyer Beware!

As a new Realtor...
I'm stealing all of these ideas! After realizing what she was doing and why, I am shocked that more Realtors do not take her approach. Amazing and entertaining listen. Perfect for recreation or any profession.
