Barbara Corcoran, founder of the Corcoran Group, co-star of reality show “Shark Tank” and a regular contributer to the “Today” show, admits that she wasn’t always on top of things — personally or professionally. In an interview with the Bigger Pockets blog, Corcoran said she got “straight Ds” in high school, which she describes as “charity Ds” in lieu of Fs. But while she said there was no “turning point” in her life, Corcoran said that consistent effort got her through tough years of waiting tables and working odd jobs. “I think what you do is you work yourself through a problem,” Corcoran said. “There is no point that turns you around. I think that there are a million points along the way.” [BiggerPockets]
