Description

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.

Dope show Barbara! I interviewed one of the Founders from a company you invested in: Jim of Cousins Maine Lobster. He sings your praises 😉. It's Ep 35 of Millionaire Interviews, if you have a chance to 🎧... Keep up the awesome work!

You're amazing and my wife and I love Shark Tank. We wanted to come see you in Phoenix about a 4-6 weeks ago. Unfortunately our sitter cancelled too late. Anyway, I'm glad to see you have a podcast and I will be here every week to listen. Thank you for all of the knowledge you give us. I hope all is well with you.
