Barbara Corcoran is one of the most inspiring businesswomen in the world.

She quit her job as a waitress in her 20s to start her own New York City real estate brokerage firm, which later turned into The Corcoran Group, on a $1000 loan and was able to sell it for whopping $66 million in 2001. It rarely gets more impressive than that.

Since then, Corcoran has been looking for good investments and became one of the main judges on Shark Tank in 2009. The show allowed the gifted female tycoon to grow her fortune even further.

What is Barbara Corcoran's net worth?

After selling The Corcoran Group, Barbara was feeling quite comfortable, but her knack for business kept driving her to seek out better opportunities.

As of 2019, Corcoran has invested in more than 20 businesses thanks to Shark Tank and made a lot of money out of it.

Currently, Barbara's net worth is estimated at $80 million and she is officially considered one of the highest paid female investors in the world. And rightfully so!

Barbara Corcoran comes from a poor background

Yes, Barbara Corcoran is currently enjoying a lavish life, but it hasn't always been like that. Barbara's mother Florence had 10 kids and used to work constantly. The Shark Tank judge doesn't even remember whether her mom ever slept.

Corcoran says she learnt the energy to make something happen for herself from her mother and believes being poor helped her reach success, as she had nowhere else to go but up.

Barbara certainly deserves all the respect and admiration!
