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. Got a question? Call me at 888-BARBARA.

Advice = Investment

I called the 888 number on a whim and was chosen as a guest. Listening to the podcast as a podcaster myself reminded me why I called. Barbara’s advice and feedback was a financial investment professionally and personally. The most genuine person I’ve experienced a conversation with despite her stature. Thank you Barbara so much.
