I’m smart at getting to where I want to go, and I can teach you how to do it! I had 22 jobs before starting my real estate company with a $1000 loan and built it into a $5 billion business. Today I’m a ’Shark’ on ABC’s hit show "Shark Tank." It didn’t take a fancy degree to get here but took street smarts and a lot of courage. Life is too short to waste your time practicing someone else’s fancy theory on success. I give you the straight talk and the confidence to get there.

Breath of Fresh Air

Barbara has this amazing ability to communicate in such a clear cut, down to earth, and actionable way. Her moxie inspires me as an aspiring entrepreneur. She gives great, straightforward advice and shares some clever ideas she implemented to get where she is today. I love her personality and realness. She has the effect of a motivational speaker without the BS.
