Barbara Corcoran

Entrepreneur interview

23 Oct, 2014

Corcoran shares four lessons she learned building a business with Entrepreneur:

  • Bootstrap: This helps learn to manage finances, and keeps the business in the founder’s control
  • Show selling power: She looks for founders with confidence, high energy, street smarts and business knowledge
  • Achieving work-life balance is difficult: But being really engaged with the people one cares about is something all business owners can strive for by taking small steps, like putting down the phone
  • Recover from hard knocks: The best entrepreneurs are the ones who can take a blow and come back stronger
