Happy New Year!!!! It was 2007 and the market was crashing and I reached out to Barbara Corcoran after reading her book, If You Don’t Have Big Breasts, Put Ribbons on Your Pigtails, which later became Use What You’ve Got…it’s a great rags to riches story as well as sales book. This was before Shark Tank and she actually had a little time to respond to emails. I aspire to live up to those words everyday when servicing clients. I thought it was fitting to begin with this short email I received from Barbara Corcoran since for the month of January 2016, I will discuss my participation in a diversity mentoring program in commercial real estate. Mentors are a great way to learn and make connections. Your network is your net worth.
