Barbara Corcoran, founder of the Corcoran Group, has revealed the name of her new book: “Shark Tales — How I turned $1,000 Into a Billion Dollar Business,” after receiving 1,731 suggestions. Since three people suggested the same title, Corcoran said on Twitter: “I’m taking the $1,000 reward and splitting it three ways — $333.33 to each person (keeping the extra penny for myself!).” The book will be released in January 2011, the same time as the airing of new season of the weekly ABC reality show “Shark Tank,” on which she appears as a judge. Corcoran called for submissions for the title Sept. 23, asking for one that is “both motivational and inspirational.” The “motivational book [will be her] own rags to riches story of growing up in a house with 10 kids, and the unconventional way I turned $1,000 into my $1 billion real estate business, the Corcoran Group. It’s also the story of finding young entrepreneurs on ABC’s ‘Shark Tank.'” TRD
