I loved meeting Barbara Corcoran. I even got to go sit next to her onstage! She has made lemonade out of lemons many times and turned $1000 into millions of dollars.
Corcoran’s book, Shark Tales: How I Turned $1,000 into a Billion Dollar Business,” is inspiring. At every turn or when things looked glum, she picked herself up, dusted herself off and figured out what to do next.
I hope you will share your story of finding freedom in my We Said Go Travel Writing Award. It closes on Independence Day July 4 and might be your way of shouting to the world that you are here and you are going to make it. I am claiming my freedom. I am divorced and I am going to figure out how to make my business successful just like Barbara Corcoran. I do not always know how it will work but I believe I am going to find a way. I appreciate everyone who has already supported me on my journey and look forward to whatever comes next.
“Opportunity does hide in the worst situations. Finding opportunity is a matter of believing it’s there.”
“I find that every big success happens after I think I’ve exhausted 100 percent of my options. For me, success happened only after I gave another 10 percent.”
to her mom: “All my life you never told me I couldn’t. You only told me I could.”
“Putting the extra effort into preparation results in extra rewards in the execution.”
“Good entrepreneurship is all about staying on the move. Every successful entrepreneur I work with expands before he’s ready. It’s the best formula I know for aggressive growth and the best way to become the market leader.”
“Being afraid to fail stops you from trying things in the first place. I learned after many failures that nobody’s watching and nobody gives a damn. If you want to build a successful business, you don’t have to get it right; you just have to get it going.”
“I look for the same three traits in every entrepreneur I choose to do business with: good character, lots of enthusiasm, and a genuine sense of thankfulness.”
Share your enthusiasm, your voice and your talent in my We Said Go Travel Writing Award!
