Moink Founder Lucinda Describes Her Experience on 'Shark Tank'

"Yes, I'm talking to lucinda, who is, I don't know, listen to how to describe you. You're the woman behind moin. I want you to say it. Where does moin come from? Moin. But you gotta go to moin box dot com to order the and so you can say oink oink just so happy I got moist. You could, but I never will. Okay, now listen challenge accepted. Now listen, so you were talking about when you were on Shark Tank. This is behind the scenes. Yes. And they had treated some dignified woman with their business, whatever, in such a way that she walked out of their sort of beaten up. Yeah, you know, look, she was very poised and confident and educated and like I said, all the things that I envisioned, maybe one day I will, I'd never be. But I had a lot of respect for it and so she walked in and she glad it in there. I was rooting for her. You're not supposed to see the people that go before you, right? And when she walked out her shoulders were hunched down, and I just thought to myself, oh, lord, no. If you are going to do that to me, I'm going to earn it. Right. So you went out there with a chip on your shoulder. Not literally. But Barbara corcoran. She wasn't in the room. I'm sad 'cause I felt like her and I, no, no, no. I thought she was the one that said you seem like you have a little chip on your shoulder. Who was that? John, who said Damon? Yeah. He said that. Yeah, they cut out what I really said in response because it wasn't TV appropriate, but it might have been something along the lines of if I've been disrespectful in any way, please let me know because I'd like to get right. But if you just think I'm a strong drink a whisky, you're I am. And not everybody can belly up to the bar and other words like, look, you don't come from nothing. And a small farming community, I lost my daddy when I was 11. My mother struggled, will you're absolutely right. This is a personal business to me. I'm gonna have a cookie. I'm gonna have a chip on my shoulder because the family farm is something that I'm passionate about. I'm with you. And I didn't know all the terms I had to learn them before I went on. I had to have a crash course of what these words meant because I knew the concepts I just didn't know the words, right?

"The window. I'm going to tell you the real deal listening today. I'm going to answer all your burning questions about work. Life starting accompany getting on track and much much more. Be sure to call in to the business unusual hotline with your question at eight eight eight barbara. That's eight eight eight b. a. r. b. r. a. This episode is presented by. At and t. business. Hey barbara this is leslie from ohio. I was wondering if it's ever appropriate to ask what the salaries during the interview absolutely but save that question till the end because it's much more gracious to ask at the end of the chew and before you who in make sure you know at that. Job is worth searched online and going with that number and if they give you a lower number and you're looking for more say it right than in there. There's no harm doing that every salary. Believe me negotiable. Hello this is barbara barbara. My name is hayley from auburn california. I was just curious. Why is the best questions to trip interviewers. In your opinion you've been in a game for a long time and you're always you know looking for that fresh person. That really did their homework. So what questions Surprise and impress you think you. Maybe i never tried to ask a trick question or trip somebody up and i don't look at the active interviewing as a game at all in my mind. The purpose of interview is simply to find out if the person's going to be good for the job do they fit the company Do they have the skill set. That's needed to perform the job. Well now when. I think about what kinds of questions i asked to accomplish. That goal of the first and foremost is to try to get to know the person as an individual. I always ask questions about their family. Their parents siblings town. They were born in. What's it like. I try to get them to relax and tell me all about the background. Why because you really can't change people if someone has a very open attitude. They're going to be an open worker. If they have a spirited core about their family in the hometown they going to be a team player. if they have grudges or if they're insecure or are Couching their own personality. I know they're not going to be open minded and so i ask a lot of questions about their background because i want to really get to know the individual their attitudes most importantly And the way they look at life The second part of the interview is to really drill down on the skill set to try to figure out. Do they have the skills for the job. And this don't trick questions there. I just present different. Circumstances went on on sure and see how they respond to it. What would they do. And so i end the interview feeling like i know the individual and i know if they have the skill set. And you know what i've learned. I've learned that. You can never change individual when i was young. Doing my first early hires. I always thought i could remake anybody if i put my mind to it. But then i realized if their parents couldn't remake them and life didn't remake them by now. Heck what was. I going to do to remake them. Sino and i interview. I'm going to get what i see. I'm not always hoping like i used to. When i was young i could change them. I can improve people. But i can't really change. I recently interviewed a woman who is very talented. Obviously had the skill set for the job but in the interview. I wasn't sure if she was going fit my personality. I was concerned because she talked a lot. And i'm not a good listener around someone who talks a lot in the workplace and so lucky for her. She asked an amazing question. Before i finish the interview with her she said is anything that would get in the way of you hiring me well she s so i told a. Yeah you talk too much. I said and she turned right around. She said i don't have to talk too much. I can work around that. I could be exactly who you want me to be. I won't talk too much. And i hire good for her. If that was an a trick question it was certainly a great question and she wouldn't be happily working in my company today. Being tremendous at what she does issue and ask that question. I was ready to pass just threw that in. I think that has been something new. I learned recently. Let's take a short break to talk about a company. I love no doubt. It's been a tough year for small business but those were quick to go. Virtual and adopt new technology are coming out on top. That's why i've teamed up with eighteen business to bring you the business unusual webinar series with free expert advice on how to grow your business from some of the smartest people i know like gary viner chuck ratio ray rebecca jarvis of abc news.

Business shares my passion for small business. And we're eager to hear from you. If you've got a question tweet us at barbara corcoran and at att business. And i just might answer your question live now. let's get back to the show. Hey sh ruthie. From austin texas and I'm glad to go to college. And i was wondering what advice you have for young girls wanting to do something in business Wanting to succeed in business because it's really challenging for many to get past. The barriers are in place and i washed shirt tank. And all these shows. And i i find it really inspirational what you do permit people. So thank you so much tracy first off. You can't focus on the barriers you look at the barriers keeps you outside in the same spot. You're in no don't let the barriers and certainly don't look at yourself as a young girl or even a woman for that matter. I don't think i ever approached a day in my life and business trying to build my life. As i wanted it to be as a young girl or woman i thought of myself as a person and more importantly i thought of myself as a competitor so when i entered the world of men who looked down on me or didn't take me seriously. I don't think i was even aware of that. I just dismissed it. I was too busy. Just doing what added due to accomplish what i wanted to do. And if they saw me differently what the heck. It wasn't until i was in business ten years until i realized the great advantage of being a woman. You know what it was. The guys didn't take me seriously. And so i went around that back and competed so hard while they weren't watching until i became the number one rival. I surprise them. If i had been a man they would have seen me coming in. They would put up a battle. But because i was a woman. They didn't take me seriously. Stop thinking of yourself as a woman. Just go out and compete like you would if you were a man. And that's all we have time for today if you have a question. Leave me a voicemail in the business unusual hotline eight eight barbara. That's eight eight eight b. a. r. b. a. r. a. You can also tweet it to me at barbara corcoran and i may just answered on a future episode. You've been listening to business unusual with me. Barbara corcoran come back. next week.

"Inside and out. So let's say in your neck of the wood you know your neighborhood you know your township you know the good blocks a bad blocks. The garbage routes the school district's. You know it inside and out as to how to identify great value. All right. maybe you should be on that side of the equation and focus on that. If you've got that you'll have money people join you and you could start a fund. It's easier thing to do the new at envision. You only need one partner to start. I wanna tell you a story to prove to you that this is a logical Way that the business goes and to great success. When i was starting out as a salesman. I had no money. I was just trying to make those commissions to pay the bills. I had no business investing in real estate but when i finally got money to invest extra money i had no time is running. A big business focused on that i had no time. What did i need. I need people who knew the market inside and out and they became my partner's side ten percent partners in the different boroughs because they found me the right real estate. They took ten percent. I put the money in. I took ninety percent. How is great for them. Great for me. But i had the right partners on that side. They had the knowledge. And i was there right partner. I had the money so decide. Second what side of that equation you wanna be on. It's very hard unless you got a lot of cash and you have a lot of time. Which isn't a lot of people for you to be in both sides market. Choose your aside and get really good at either the money side or the knowledge side. But don't try to do both a less again. I say unless you're loaded with money and have no job in of all the time in the world to get really smart on the experience side all right. So that's it that would be my Suggestion but remember that first question. Are you aggressive. If you're not aggressive this ain't the market you to dip into. Let's take a short break to talk about a company. I love now. Let's get back to the show. Hi barbara my name is emily. And i'm from chattanooga tennessee and my husband and not have about three renault's and to airbnb with the money coming in should we pay off the homes one by one for put that money towards something else. Thank you will emily. I would say that depends on a one thing. Only your appetite for risk. If you're buying these properties and doing well that you have the money coming in good for you have a successful business. But how much of it do you want. Would you feel more comfortable. If you double the number of properties you're managing and renting out. Would that be cold. You're probably doing this amount of renovation. I would think too on the front sight. Is that something you have the bandwidth to absorb and union husband. Love that kind of thing. You have the time to do it. Then i say go famour go as far as you can. And you have stepped into the most golden part of the investment community real estate. Because once you have those first few properties you have a gold mine. You can leverage leverage leverage again and. This is what i would suggest. I would not pay off the mortgages unless this is a goal you serve that you are feeling nervous and you wanna get rid of the loans. Then go ahead and do that. But if you not feeling that way. I would remortgage all those properties. They're making money. The bank will give you a big mortgage and if you go to the bank and remortgaged as properties. You could take that cash that they give you and by a lot more properties. That's how the big guys do it. Anyone who's grown rich and real estate do it with leveraging and that's basically the question you're asking should i leverage my properties were should i pay them off and that takes me to the first question again. It depends upon how comfortable you are with risk. If you're going to sleep well at night and on double the properties with the cash you just got from a bank. Go for it. You're going to be filthy rich. Not just rich but if you're not going to sleep at night and be worried it ain't worth it the only got one life that a good thing going. Why not continue what you're doing. That's it my best advice and that's all we have time for today. If you have a question leave me a voicemail on the business unusual hotline eight eight eight barbara. That's eight eight eight b. a. r. b. a. Aren't a you can also tweet it to me at barbara corcoran and i may just answered on a future episode. You've been listening to business unusual with me.

"Spend on that listen the more crystal clear you are about it the better hiring job you'll do so don't do a thing until you've got that really clear lists including the hours vacation time how it's gonna run overtime at times what you're going to do about overtime. Think of every single angle see of this law scary lists. You're record not for the next guy here. Okay secondly what questions you ask in an interview that gives you the meet the stuff you really wanna hear this one best question the world if you willing to listen. Tell me about yourself and then keep asking question on question. Tell me about yourself. That's how you're going gonna get a read on that person's personality which is key. Does it match your list that you need in the personality and then you want to ask about their experience specifically do this do that. If there's a way you can test the do this do that all the better. But if you can't you want to ask about and see if you believe the answers they're giving you a. How organized are you owe. A morgan is on a scale of one to ten. How organize i seven. Oh that's so organiz. Okay you want to drill down and get real good solid answers to your question and then last after you've finished doing the questioning you want to make sure you're hiring attitude over experience it's great to have experienced can live without experience if you get somebody with a positive attitude. I'm going to use my mike stevens. Who runs all my shark tank businesses as a perfect example cyber leave. You'll remember it in the interview. When i was interviewing mike he was just graduating from college. He was the football coach. No pardon me the football captain in college. Big muscular guy the kind of guy you picked treating seven hamburgers and may be dripping the catchable over his mouth but i needed someone super organized when i asked him how organiz she was. He said very organized. I said how organized she said. Well i was a scholarship kid at columbia university. The captain my football team. I worked twenty hours a week for the university to help support my tuition. And i gotta be plus average. You have to be organized to pull that off too. I believe him you bench. I was impressed. And then the other issue. I had on my list was a lot of men. Don't like to work for strong women. And here's a football macho guy. Who i enough. He likes for women who strong women. And so i asked him. How do you feel about reporting to a woman. I can ask that question and you know what you said. My mother is the most organized powerful person i ever met. I reported her my whole life. I love answering women who knew this. Football hero was gonna come out with that stuff right. So i hired him that day based on attitude and my other important trait can they report to own and you know perfect. Hire his attitude toward him. Everything he didn't know about the job any new nothing. If i had chosen based on experience he was the absolute wrong candidate. But i had my eye on experience a me. I had my eye on attitude over experience. And i had my eye on the key traits that i needed for that specific job because i had taken the time to make the list too. I know what i was hunting for. So that's what i would suggest. I know it's a way a lot of more information in the us for but it is a sure-fire formula behind the right people. It is and that's all. We have time for today if you have a question. Leave me a voicemail in the business unusual hotline eight barbara. That's eight eight eight b. a. r. b. a. r.

"Hi my name is melissa. And i'm calling from new canaan in connecticut and my question is what advice Do you give to young entrepreneurs who are finding their way in the business world Water good jobs to take To gain experience or internships to apply to gain experience Thank you melissa. This is a question. I hear every single day in. It's a great question so it's good you're asking a lot of people can learn from it you just starting out. There's a whole world out there. Where do you go. What do you focus on what he'd take. What are you one. It's like so hard when you haven't started down a path okay. So my advice would be three solid things. Okay number one. You want to stay open minded. Okay just see what comes your way you gotta go out and play in the traffic to see what bumper cars of the air. And what do you like to do which you want to jump in and steer you gotta get out there and tries to alaska them. So don't go out there with an attitude that you have to find the right first step. There is no right. I stepped is no formula. Just get out and get in the fray. That's number one number two. You'll have opportunities along the way in the beginning and all along the next job and the job. I after that you'll have opportunities to choose more money or better position or more experience but you know they never come in the same job. A better experience comes with some jobs and better pay comes another other jobs always choose experience because when you choose the better experience it always gets you further ahead when you you back up from your life and look back and see wall. Thank god i worked for that guy. Thank god i worked in that place that opened the store to this one that open door to this one but if you had just bought the job that was offered you because paid more. Those jobs never really go anywhere for some reason. That's what i've learned. And i've had a lot of jobs. Hey and the last is don't overlook the person you're working with working for you boss if you choose a boss that you like and has your back. He likes you back. she likes you back. She protects you. You're gonna wind up in a better job. You're going to get promoted more. You have pushed ahead because you've joined a great team headed by great leader and so don't overlook who you work for has more to do as you happiness you'll find than what you actually do for a living so loosen it up. Melissa you sound a little tight loosen it up. Let's not get out there and playing the traffic. Don't be so particularly. And that's all we have time for today if you have a question. Lead me a voicemail on the business unusual hotline eight eight eight barbara.

"And i'm trying to match it with a great enthusiastic answer but the truth is that i got an invitation. Gordon shark tank. I just got lucky call. Not that i was already working very hard in the field to build a reputation for myself as someone in the media space. But i got lucky. Call someone who called me and invited me. Would i be interested in going on the show. that's how i got on shark tank. I might also add that. I got rejected on shark tank right after i signed the contract. We'll say cold and so they changed their mind and the best thing. I did not lucky. But the best thing i did was stand for myself and give them a lot of reasons why they had made a mistake and asking them to invite me and the other woman they already chose or so they said out to compete for the one seat so that was the best decision i made and really got me on shark tank but i do get that lucky coal. Initially that being said. Why do i do it. I wish i could tell you. It's because i love helping people and that was on my mind. In the gecko. I discover that later why i did shark tank. Initially as it was fun. I felt like i could speak my mind. Be myself and people responded well to and they got something out of it only then did i realize the power of plane. The fairy godmother and making dreams come true and how much satisfaction i would get of having many different partners all the time changing all the time becoming part of my family and how satisfied that was. I wanna say one of the thing and that is i love me on shark tank every single day. All right i. There isn't a day on that. Set that i don't say thank you god for giving me this shot and because of that i've got so much satisfaction. Well well well. Beyond what a job could give give. You feels to me just like a gift gift every day but you keep that old enthusiasm olivia from the city of long island. I never heard that line could feel and you sound like you're still from long island by the way. Don't lose that accent. Hello this is barbara. Hi barbara since they keep from olive branch mississippi. I have been a work from home. Mom for twenty five years. I built a very successful direct sales business. That unfortunately closed after thirty five years in business i was with that company for twenty years earned a healthy six figure income. And now it's gone. I never thought that. I would invest so much of myself and my time into that business but fell in love with the people i worked with and that exposed me to. I'm now floundering. And the fact that i've not yet found anyone who acknowledges the skills and stamina and professionalism that building and sustaining in that industry required is somewhat disappointing I have great people skills a higher than normal q. and work ethic. And i'm just wondering if you have any advice or direction for what line of business i'm not consider pursue mix while it's kind of a complicated question because there's a lot of layers would vicky so let me take a stab at giving my my best dancer. Okay first of all get about the regret. I hear between the lines. What always time. You can't spend any time regretting it because what it really is. It's another version of feeling. Sorry for yourself. You don't have time for that. You don't need it you to talented. Don't waste another minute even thinking that you regret any of the energy you put anywhere because guess what you got forward. You became successful. And that's all you can hope to get is success from really putting the pedal of the metal and try and everything you can all right so don't regret it. Leave that behind. That's number one next thing. You have to leave behind looking for the acknowledgement from others. You know people. Don't you know it's like being in a long marriage in hoping a husband brings you roses. Every day doesn't work. that way. Lucky remembers the anniversary. Frankly so don't look for acknowledgement of how talented you were or what you accomplished from people that you want to employ now or from the people that you work with back. Then it's over. You did well any job. You're paid well again. Another version of feeling. Sorry for yourself just looking for acknowledgement again. But here's what i hear in The positive vein of everything. You said i agree with you. I don't doubt you for a minute that you were more talented than most people there. And that's phenomenal package. You could apply those particular talents because said not industry related their people and job related. That could apply to any. You could apply to any job you choose. So what are you interested in. Make a list of what floats he boat. What makes you happy. What kind of industry catches your eye here. There and then to start applying for a lot of jobs. They're all those old talents you have. Don't go away you'll bring them to the next job and push them at the job with reckless abandonment. Don't hold back and you'll have another big success. Remember how happy you were in that old job before it ended so you just looking for replacement and i would also say if you have people you love people who loved you and you had great exposure many people which you mentioned in your question i say why not grab a few those people maybe even one as a partner and go into the same field. Do it for yourself. Why not start the business for yourself if you enjoy being a member of a team you know what you're doing and you produced money for the next guy so why not go out and do it for yourself. I just say maybe consider that but those are to clear roads to your future success. Oh forget the past. Close the door on that move on. Let's take a short break to talk about a company. I love no doubt. It's been a tough year for small business. But those who are quick to go. Virtual and adopt new technology are coming out on top.

"Barbara my name is tara. I'm in from oregon illinois. I was wondering how to deal with Building a small business and a cop and copycat and how to deal with Someone who is trying to come in essentially do everything that you're doing so That's my question. I appreciate it. I appreciate your time and your feedback. Gonna s you. Question was the story. How i learned about copycats. Okay and what they mean and how how. I see it now differently than i did when i was younger. Business person when i was trying to build my real estate business here new york city. I was doing individual sales and rentals like one apartment at a time and finally i realized. Whoa there's a lot of development in new york. I wanna get hold giant buildings three hundred units and so i started calling on developers to get their trade three hundred listings versus one a time. I did the math. That's what i wanted. But i didn't know how to do that. Business a whole different kettle of fish. So i went to someone who's already in the business. Her name was Adrienne alpert who still in the business. I think i went to agent. Albert's office and pretended i was a customer. I'm ashamed of this. But i'll tell you i went into the sales office and pretended i was a customer so that i could see how they ran the operation and every form they use have that could i have that. Could i have this and even slipped if you forms in my purse. Then i went back to my own company and a replicated. All those forms and i knew the mechanism of running a onsite sales job and i opened a few offices all over manhattan with large buildings in effect. I was a thief. I didn't see it that way. I justified but i was a thief. Fancy thief but a thief gay. I was ashamed when i went back to my desk. The following monday's. This is a friday morning following monday. I get a phone recording. From mrs albert wong business. I was terrified to listen to it. And you know what. She said. She said barbara. I understand you're in my sales office at such and such dress and that you are wondering how that onsite business actually operates in that. We were able to help you with a few of the forms. I'm holding my breath feeling the pound in my heart and then she goes on to say just know that. I'll help you in any way that i can. I'll give you all the forms. I'll teach you how the whole business runs. And i'm very very happy to have you as a rival. Here's my number. Call me anytime. I was stunned. I thought what class act. And what a small person i am. I was ashamed. I called her. When i got the courage. I think it took me three days to get over my shame. I finally called for and thanked her. And i became her number one rival and then superseded her and she was always gracious. Here's what i've learned about copycats. It's the highest compliment in the world. Every single business. I invested in shark tank that is exceptional businesses. It's making the most money i copied every day. It's a good sign. It means we're onto something good and what also copycat does. Is it encourages. You insist that you do a better job. It keeps you on the edge. Keeps you on your toes. So when you're having copycats which i hear you are tara. Copycats copycats send them a thank. You know and thank them. At least you had thank food for copying his highest compliment in business you could get and that's all we have time for today if you have a question. Leave me a voicemail in the business unusual hotline eight eight barbara. That's eight eight eight b. a. r. b. a. Aren't a you can also tweet it to me at barbara corcoran and i may just answered on a future episode. You've been listening to business unusual with me.

"Hey this is barbara corcoran. You are now to d- into business unusual and everything you ever learned about business. Throw it out the window. I'm going to tell you the real deal listening today. I'm going to answer all your burning questions about work. Life starting accompany getting on track and much much more. Be sure to call in to the business unusual hotline with your question at eight eight eight barbara. That's eight eight eight b. a. r. b. r. a. This episode is presented by. At and t. business. Hey barbara this is gina. I'm calling from williamsburg. Virginia i am a new yorker though. I'm sure you can tell that. I'm not southern My first question is what do you think is the biggest challenge for boutique. Cookie business In today's climate giving walking traffic is just about opening up again I know you invest in daisy cakes. So you know the sweet business pretty well so just wanted to hear some thoughts on that My second question is with limited funds available. Would you choose to spend your money on packaging or advertising gina. I drove everything's opening up. So you're in for some heydays and you're going to do a lot of bang-up sales so get ready for the tide coming in as it's coming in for everybody you're important question. How do i spend my money wisely. Your unlimited budget every entrepreneurs on a limited budget and the people that do well with it are the people who spend carefully give it a lot of thought as so weird my pennies best be spent. And you're obviously asking those questions which is a great place to start. I say you have to spend on both yet to spend on packaging and you have to spend on advertising and it might seem at first blush insurmountable. Like my gosh. I only have limited funds dozen barbara. Listen to me yes some listening. I can tell you that you have to spend on packaging because what role of packaging is sets the customer up with an expectation of what the product is going to be. It's the first impression like when you meet somebody. Oh he she looks interesting. Will the packaging has to look good to attract the person in. But that doesn't mean you have to spend a lot of money there dozens of websites out there. That are very young. Talent who do design work color work package design work for so little money. I don't even know how they stay in business. But you can have two or three people take a stab at initial packaging design. And you won't spend more than one hundred bucks and that's what you should be doing to start off with c. A packaging has to be good because it sets expectations. Secondly you must spend money on advertising and the word advertising is always misleading. It sounds so big and so broad and so expensive but it doesn't have to be. You could advertise smart and clever simply. You could advertise an instagram. And what a lot of young entrepreneurs don't realize as you can buy market share like within ten blocks of william businesses are twenty blocks thirty blocks and for five dollars you spend on instagram. You could get one hundred local people to see your ad. That's amazing right. So spend frugally on advertising but choose your medium. Well i would say. Instagram is the area that you could control best. Spend the least and get the biggest bang for your buck last. I want to add one thing which you didn't ask about. Make sure your branding. His personal yes. I love daisy cakes. The reason days cakes. Half the reason i should say other than her working like crazy but half the reason she's so successful is people know the person buying the brand if you don't put your face forward with a with a apron with a potholder. Inhale with a pretty. Cookie played in your hand. You're out of your mind because what everybody loves the baker and so you have to be front and center as baker may shoot you keep yourself up for. That's it asked my best advice. Get ready for the good old days. We're going to start to rock and roll. Hello my name is will. And i'm calling from east lansing michigan.

I wanted to see what your thoughts or suggestions would be for a small business owner that started in high school and is just starting out and is trying to get some ground under their feet with Innovations in their field. But they're little hesitant getting the patent process going. So will you sound to me like conservative guy unless you fool me with that voice but you sure sound like my first husband. He was a conservative guy. Okay conservative people like to have their is dotted. And the t's crossed all the time and that can get in the way when you starting a business. You almost wanna play loose and you know why if you don't play it loose you don't see the cars coming. You don't know how to bob and weave. You're like focused on the line in the road you know. Forget about the patent in know the only time you should be thinking about getting a patent is when you realize the whole world wants you product then you have something to protect but if you conservative by nature chances are you'll spend money on the patent. Make the attorneys rich instead of you rich by going through the process spending your time in addition to the money and you know it's often not because until you could clearly see that people really really love your product and really are wanting it. I wanna copy it. That's when you spend the money on pat got it. Let's take a short break to talk about a company. I love no doubt. It's been a tough year for small business.

I'll tell you it's different than perhaps you've heard before when i was a still in school my mother was a real estate agent and She idolized you and more than that. She so you so inspired her and you inspired her an interesting way. Which is that. I think my mom saw this industry that was largely women realtors and she looked around and said you know. It's kind of weird. Because all the agencies all the brokerages seemed to be owned by men and she wanted to have her own brokerage her own agency you grew up in westchester and there were no female owned agencies until maybe thirty years ago i agree with you. Yeah yes. Julia was the other not to get too detailed into the weeds on real estate. But she seriously would talk all the time. Barbara corcoran this barbara quirk. In that she was on the board of real. Oh and she must have met you some function or other first name Mickey mickey randolph was randolph properties swine. I put that together. She was solid rock. No question about that woman whatsoever. Who worked her she was. She was my inspiration in many ways as an entrepreneur. Because i i saw her doing the things you have to do to build a business. I mean at first as a realtor but then starting your own agency and then eventually having a network of agencies a network of offices but again I know how much he respected you. And here's the last piece to this. is that obviously. I've had this opportunity to meet lots and lots of really interesting really successful people and my parents aren't around now for me to telugu on meeting but i know that they wouldn't really been that impressed because they weren't that type of people. But if i told my mom that i'm getting a chance to talk to barbara corcoran that that would have resonated with her. So thank you for the opportunity. I would have definitely interviewed you when you were fine. If i had known that back then i see great things in this. My mom would have agreed with you. Put your mother's first thing together with your last name and helming. Wow what a treat to even think back at those reloj as and the good times we had but she was not a fluffy woman she told me like it was what she said said what she meant and left the scene. That was that was your mother. So i gotta tell you one little quick real estate story before we actually get into netflix's and all the rest of it is that we for those who don't know westchester county where i grew up chappaqua particular was a pretty upper middle class..

Creativity as a Mechanism to Win

"Creativity as a mechanism to win. What yes that's what. I'm talking about right now. I have been just in love with my own process lately and it involves a mindset as well as a time management hack and one. I'm talking about is i work on my money making projects as my core focus of my day. That has not changed. But what has changed. Is you know grinding. It out for four years plus on doing own gig. Sometimes i get stuck or frustrated or like burnt out for lack of a better word and rather than going. Okay send a day to quit. Seven o'clock tune out. Watch some netflix six. Instead of doing that. I have implemented something else which is far more satisfying and it is. I have a set of creative projects that i'm doing and allotting time for for myself and if i do it right i can also learn. New skill sets while satisfying the creative side of my soul. So it has professional benefits as well as sole benefits as well as productivity benefits like. It's just a whoop. It's an alignment so let me explain the for myself. It might be different for you but for me. One of One project. I can think of as i wanted to learn some harmonies and lay them down on audio software. Just for fun. Because i love harmonizing and with the pandemic it's hard to get together in person and harmonize with people So i just was like well elite. How my own tracks harmonized with myself. Because it's so enjoyable. And i did that. So he became more familiar with Recording software and how to to do what i needed to do with multiple tracks et cetera. So that was a skill that i'm building and singing is obviously the harmonizing is really enjoyable So that satisfies decreed site. And then i was like well. I want to be able to quickly make any audio files. That i produce into videos so i was like all right. Quick hack and learn that real quick check and then just keep going so. That's one and then another one i have is. Oh then. this is totally frivolous inhale. Larry is and that's why i love it. L. being in my creative project rotation is that i've set up in my library. A mike stand and on it is god a microphone. Obviously and then an audio processor with the gain and everything and i plug it right into my phone. Start taking video and my dream for the for. The project is to have gene. Eat some healthy snacks and do like little. Asmar videos because it's so funny. Like i would love for him to be tic tac famous. And i don't even know dog. Asmar is something people like because it might be actually disgusting. Like i don't care. So i'm not really looking at it as like oh i'm gonna make my career out of making dog. Asmar no it's more just hilarious to me the thought of it as genre but then it also gives me more experience with equipment and working with my dog in creating content from a totally different angle and also video editing and tiktok. It's fun So those are just some examples for me. So it's it's kind of amazing you can just be working on your money making projects and then if you get stuck or you get tired Rather than just being like. I'm done for the day. That's it you just switch gears and you activate the creative part of your brain and if you do it right you can also pick up new skills on the side just for fun teaching yourself a whole manner of things and this is in addition to taking master classes or learning from your favorite business. People like i love. Jay abraham so much and radio and sara blakely and barbara corcoran and mark cuban. Of course i'm very aligned with him on social justice as well as how he approaches his whole entire career so anyway that is super fun. I wanted to talk to you guys about that. L. creativity is a mechanism win. And when no if you're doing that is well. I know a lot of people like engineering types to have multiple interests. They kinda tend to do this naturally so they just go from thing to think to think especially if they're like adhd so yeah. I've just really taken a lot of joy in this approach because it makes me feel like instead of like i'm not enough. I didn't complete you know solving this problem. That i've wanted to solve for three days. You know instead of feeling like that feeling and going. I gotta call it a night and just go watch some amazon prime. You know some movie instead of doing that. It's like i'm to. I'm a shelf this for now. And i'm going to activate a different part of my brain know because some of us are both analytical and creative

How brutal honesty will bring you massive profits, happiness, and success with Peter Kozodoy

"Well, fire nation we have a lot to. Talk about today, it's going to be a blast. We're talking about honest to greatness how brutal honesty is going GonNa Bring you NASA prophets happiness and success and Peter. You're upcoming book is endorsed by Barbara Corcoran, which I'm very proud and have always been very excited to say was one of our power twenty, the first twenty people I ever interviewed on this show. So she was very kind enough are never forget to take my interview while she was getting her makeup done before an episode of Shark Tank. So it was pretty cool. It has some background noise going on but overall, it was a blast and. Kudos to that, it's about using brutal honesty to achieve massive success. So I just have to ask why honesty why did that concept intrigued you so much as to write a book about it it's a great question because I actually never set out to write about speak about or frankly even care about honesty. It's surprising to me as it is to anyone that I've written. A book about something we all learned in preschool, and yet I think when we look around at the we live in right now it's pretty clear that we need a whole lot more honesty here in twenty twenty So to take you back and help everyone understand how I got here Let's go back to that that figure Skater seventeen-year-old Peter and at that age. I was the same size, five, seventy cancer a smaller younger. The two things were true. I knew two things to be absolutely true. My Life I was I was going to going to the Olympics has a figure skater unequivocally that was what was going to occur and the second thing. John's I. Was GonNa go to Harvard I, grew up on the South Shore Boston there is only one college for me it was in. My backyard that was Harvard. Well, by eighteen I had missed my shot at the Olympics was clear that I just couldn't keep my nerves together to make it work I applied to Harvard Harvard. Sent me a letter back saying thank you. But no, thank you. Don't call us. We'll call you and from that point on I won't live I, was devastated. Devastated I ended up. Going to another college and When I came out, I started a company. it ended well, it's a long story. Short story has started a video production company, my business partner I. Having no idea what we can do I I've always been the type to think I can do it better. And so the great thing about that is when you think you do a better, you can go start a business. The bad thing about that is when you think you can do a better. You actually have to go out and do it better A. So we spent a lot of years having no idea what we were doing John we were we were shooting eight hundred dollar television commercials for local car dealers, which is exactly as glamorous as it sounds. And I remember thinking like, wow, we could only shoot more eight, hundred dollars television commercials, ain't we would be rich we'd be rich. That's the past millions while apparently I had not studied hard math classes at college because if I had, I realized that that was the stupidest thing I could have thought it was just unfeasible for a whole lot of reasons, and again you know this young twenties entrepreneur. More gumption than brains. So eventually we Pivoted into being a full service marketing agency, and the reason we made that pivots because we were getting hired by other agencies and we realized that Kinda sucked they didn't take care of their clients. They overcharged they missed deadlines. Strategies weren't that good what we can do this better again right? We can do better. So or what we do you slap a new label on our. On our agency. Now Boom, we're full service marketing agency, and so quick story. The way we got our first client was that we were doing videos for local college and shooting their students and listening to their stories. And one day the the market called and said, Hey, we have a pitch open. We're going to hire a full service agency. It's about a million dollar account. Do you WanNa come pitch in do you have the resources to do this? And so we put the phone on mute or like okay. We'll do you know we need like graphic design to do account manager. We're GONNA probably need some web developed. Do we have the resources to that? No No. Definitely not So we pick the phone backup we said, yeah, absolutely WANNA. Come and touch will be there whatever time you need a Haredi go. So. We're in the pitch and at the towards the end we show this video had been recording of their students and the students are talking than we reveal our Tagline, which is the foundation of the entire campaign. And the room goes quiet. And the President looks down at what we've done pause. She looks up. And says, where did you? Where did you get this? I've been looking for this for years and I was tempted to say because we're the biggest bunch of geniuses ever. Of course, that's why I didn't because that wouldn't have been honest instead I said, your own, your own students gave us this. This is how they really think and feel these by the way of the only people who matter the ones who pay you money for your product and service. And so throughout building my company I got very interested in how honesty plays into the organization into the executives because it's not just being about your customers, what they think but I was always fascinated by how some of our clients took our growth strategies and just crushed it Golic a five, hundred, six, hundred, percent Roi loved US stayed with us for years and others. John. We'd work with. We'd give the same love attention strategies and they would just blow up on the launch pad I. Mean They could not get out of their own way they descended into infighting and politics in both quite frankly, and I always chalked it up to stupidity as these people are a bunch of morons. But of course, they weren't that. Was Me being a moron did. A tremendous amount of acumen intelligence to become an executive in any role. What I actually found over the years was it was something much more serious, which was a lack of honesty and in a variety of ways you're honest about what was going on in the world and how consumer trends were changing honest about what was going on with their fellow executives or their customers or dishonest with themselves and with their own biases and self limiting beliefs as a leader in and I saw many. And it wasn't until. I had my own crisis of honesty that the whole solidified for me that I that I made sense of this both both in the organizational sense in the personal sense something terrible happened to me John. It took me years to get over I don't know if this happened to you but I turned thirty. Oh. My God I don't know how people survive that. It was just devastated. I was like this is off. So I turned thirty and Mike Okay. This isn't so bad and then as I looked around, I just started descended into darkness and I just started beating myself up over. You know what happened because I realized that those two massive failures I had seventeen had been sticking with. Me had had given me these big weights on my shoulders at said Peter you can strive for greatness, but it's never going to be the best life because you already failed at that you already done your already failure. And it turned out it was carrying that around. So so by thirty, you know I looked around listen I built a million dollar company just married. My wife were flipping anew house I mean bronze purposes show just shut the hell up and been happy. But life doesn't work that way and I realized that there was so much more that I still had him that I still wanted to do and that's when I realized I had been dishonest with myself. Here I was preaching organizational honesty and I had failed to get out of my own way in realized my own self limiting beliefs and in the year after I turned thirty John achieved than I had in the ten years prior one of these things being the book that is now going to come out this year fire nation I. Hope you can just hear and understand and absorb what Peter Sharing Right now how critical

It wasn't wasn't badly that kind of a trade show is more of a manufacturer rep trade show and we got tons of contacts and excitement and we've been diligently working signing up these different it rips in the last month that this has all happened like within the last thirty five days really fast. So the reps that you're signing up is so that they can go out and sell your product product to the retail space so that the retail space can sell it to your consumer. That exactly how it works. That is correct again they also promote it to you know. No lighting designers and various people like that so tied. Tell me once more. Why is this light special? I'm not sure quite got that. If you think give a normal Scott slate that might be on your wall you go to turn the switch on it just comes on turn. It often turns off really quick. We decided we wanted to add a new artistic element to do those. And they're kind of a mini piece of artwork. When you actually turn the switch on they slowly open up? And they changed form in shape in the lane gradually increases and then when you actually turn the switch off the lights actually revert back to their normal stage and they have a little soft glow about him. So it's kind of unique. It's kind of a new product. South sounds spooky to me and you have two lights that look like little field mice on the wall and then you turn them on and suddenly they grow into an elephant. You've got to be elephant. Funny we know give me an example of how they change shape just like visual of it. And then I'll leave you alone on describing over and over again. No no problem at all. One of our lights is called the apex of a triangle. Shape as you go to turn it on. It actually grows outward so the side piece actually become bigger. The backlight lights up the wall while the front our delight as a RGB lights and they're made out of aluminum covers. They look really artistic. Actually Pretty Pretty Nice. It sounds to me more like you're selling art versus you. Selling life is a mixture of both It's targeted for a high end market. It's not your average going down to home depot so in Celena alight. This is kind of a higher end a home automation products. You know one more thing. What are they sell for list price on him is roughly seventeen hundred dollars? This is precis artwork really okay and the military lights who've been selling to the military audience. That has nothing to do you. These lights who you're selling to you're going out into a totally different landscape to sell your new business right. That is correct. Yep this is a totally new company. Okay okay thank you. Thank you for taking the time to explain a little bit more. I need to picture something to really help somebody. So now I get the lay of the land. You have quite beautiful lights.

'Shark Tank' star Barbara Corcoran's brother is 7th American tourist to have died in the Dominican Republic

"Another update for you out of the Dominican Republic Barbara Corcoran from shark tank. Her brother was found dead in his hotel room in the Dominican Republic, and the circumstance according to TMZ sound, eerily familiar to the other six mysterious tourists deaths in the country. Barbara says her brother was in the DR with a friend in April on his yearly vacation, when he died of a heart attack. There's been no autopsy. And that's what she was told that he died of a heart attack. She says her brother's friend who is staying in the same suite discover the body, but nobody knows what happens the brother John was retired owned a successful roofing company in New Jersey. They say that he loved visiting the Dominican Republic and was awaiting arrival of his girlfriend before he died. This is going to be an interesting look into a couple of things number one. How many people die in the Dominican and these high end resorts and number two? How many Americans die on vacation period in, in a year because like we said, I think they the Dominican says that there are seven million visitors annually seven million tourists and the majority of those come from the United States for their vacations. And so even if you had three and a half or four million Americans every year, going to the Dominican just by sheer percentages, you're gonna have a number of them who just die. Sure. And they're all going to I shouldn't say all the vast majority of them are going to be in resorts when they're staying there horse racing deaths. Okay. I'm listening, well because the media is over covering all of them. It sounds like it's very odd rare and the whole bit. Well, we've been making a lot of the fact they were in their hotel room. Oh. And they drank from the minibar everybody drinks from the mini bar, those are common things. Anyway, -sorts even it's, it's free. Yeah. So it's if those things were poisoned in their many bars, and they somehow are able to figure that out, that's when we're going to start to see some significant

The 5 Biggest Interview Mistakes That Won't Get You The Job

The 5 Biggest Interview Mistakes That Won't Get You The Job

"Interviewed thousands of people my career, and I can tell you there five mistakes that people make again, and again, and again, and so I wanted to share them with you. So that if you were out looking to get an advancement or get a new job that you could do everything right and avoid these five mistakes number one, bad handshake. You know, what the purpose of a handshake is it's to make a connection with the person. It creates a first impression is really a gesture of friendship in good faith. It was originally meant to say believe it or not. I'm not carrying a weapon that was what a handshake used three back way way way back today. It means, hey, let's be friends. There are a couple of different styles of handshakes that are mazing to me that this still out there one is the gorilla snooze. I hate it. Not only do men do it on your hands aching but women today do it wrong way to go. You know, what it conveys to me? I'm insecure, and I don't want you to know about it. Then there's the other kind of ham shake the limb. Panshir men very often do this with women. But you know, what my interpretation of it is. That means shyness I lack confidence or very anxious all of them the wrong messaging. What's the perfect handshake? It's the skin between your thumb and forefinger that actually makes the connection with the other guys skin between his thumb and forefingers shake your own hand. You could feel that connection. That's their people trust you. Next bad posture. It's amazing to me how people will walk into my office with bad posture and right away. I'm not interested in hiring them. I sit in the shark tank seed, ten hours day in six inch heels with me up on my toes was a straight back with no support from my back, and I could tell you I would never hunch over because I know the importance of bed posture when someone walks with slump shoulder, I think right away, they're nervous. They're bored. They have no confident, and when they sit and have bad posture. I think right away. They're all so lazy. I never hire anyone with bad posture. Even if it's an all day desk job because I don't believe that people are going to be alert at the ready if they don't have good posture. I believe he should practice your posture before every interview so that you walk straight. And when you sit in the chair you keep a straight back. It creates such psychological quiet impression. But makes a difference between getting a job or not next bid eye contact. It's amazing to me where people will do it. There is with him interview. Ing I. Contact in my mind is the best indication of self confidence. And looking away implies a lack of respect a lack of interest in the position or simply an inability to concentrate. I know that I contact is hard, especially when the person across from us the person in power, but I think you can really practice on holding good eye. Contact was essential. If you're going to be interviewing for something because it conveys that you are confident. I am frankly amazed that's still today. I'll be interviewing someone and their phone will ring, and I'm thinking to myself anyone who would be that self unaware that they didn't turn off their phone knowing they're coming in for an interview. Could you imagine what they'd be like if they work for me? I would never offer that person job it's over. And yet I would say one in six or seven interviews. I have the phone rings turn off your phone. And Finally, I present to you the three worst questions you could ask in any job interview. Here they come. How late to I have to work. I can't believe it. When people ask me that. I think they're not going to work, very hard. I mean, if you must ask about ours is a different way of putting it you could say, hey, what are the typical hours very different than how late I have to work, which is what so many people ask me. The next question is how do you get raises around here or another version how do people get promoted when I hear this thing. This person's going to be a pain in the neck when I have to give them a reason to promote them right away. The job offered never comes a better way of saying. This would be what would be expected of me in the first year to move ahead here the difference like nine-day and the last question, what's the vacation policy? Just don't even ask this one because it translates into how quickly can run out the door. None of us like anybody when it's all about them. Think of all the people, you know, that are all about them. You don't like them. You don't wanna be around. Well, the. Same is true of hiring. All your questions have to be about the other guy. Not about you.

How To Make Them Beg For Your Product

How To Make Them Beg For Your Product

"Here's something that kind of bugs me all the time. Lots of entrepreneurs thinks that the product or the service that they're about to offer that business is the end all when I want to say to everyone is you can have a good product. You can have a good service. But let me tell you. It's useless unless you can create a sense of demand, if you can create a sense of demand, even for new product, Hugh have a customer who comes through door and gives you the money to buy it. So here's my advice for all these people that think it's all about the product or the service that they're about to sell. I'm here to tell you. It's all about having that, but much more importantly, creating a sense of demand that your product is irresistible. Let me give you a few examples. I have a cousin who opened and ran for many years in my hometown of Edgewater rusty's far his business when he started out had good food beautiful space, you put his life savings into it. But no one was coming to his bar until Russi came up with the idea of calling all of his friends and simply saying park your cars outside my bar that made all the difference within weeks. Rusty's bar was hopping. What had rusty figured out? Of course, he had a formula of good bar. Good service. But he finally figured out. It was the sense that everybody wanted it that would bring people in. And that's how rusty built his very profitable business. When I started my business, I had one listing for my old boss that I used to answer phones for and I was thankful for the listing. It was a one bedroom that was priced at three hundred and forty dollars a month. Yeah. I know in New York in those days way way back you get a one bedroom for three hundred forty dollars a month today. I guess that would be maybe three thousand four hundred dollars a month. But there I have one listing. What was I going to do with the one listing hopefully rent it? But I could talk about that listening every day advertise it every day. It wasn't going to get it rented until I thought of a given. The gimmick. I thought of is to build a wall in the L part of that living room and call it not a one bedroom anymore, but a one bedroom and debt now, what would you call in on the New York Times ad which was the internet of its day. Would you? Call in on the one bedroom for three forty or the one bedroom in Denver three forty. It. Was that simple gimmick that got my phone ringing off the hook. Because I understood the importance of positioning. Positioning a product that everybody wants by thinking of a simple gimmick when I needed to get attention in a very bad real estate market. But was we had no one calling in for our property. I developed something called the Corcoran report. And all it was was an addition of eleven sales. I had for the year divided by eleven average sale price. So I published that average sales price and sent it to everyone when I say published it sounds fancy when I actually did is folded up mail it to anyone who wrote for the New York Times that day, and what happened boom, I got great, publicity, and I stole my competitors market share because I was quoted in every newspaper on my new statistical report, that's a gimmick. That's creating demand for people to come in and ask to see the listings because some in the news all the time. So they figure them someone important. Today's cork freeport is social media, and I can tell you in all the business I invested in shark tank. I never invest in an entrepreneur who's not good at social media because I understand the importance of that you have to get notice and today's platform forgetting notice is in social media. I have a business named the dough bar. It's a delicious dober- that everyone who works out really is into wants to order and keep ordering more. But why they doing more not because it's the only dough bar in the United States. But because my to entrepreneurs are remarkable at social media that makes everybody wanted another business. I have is Grayson lace. One of the principals, Melissa models are closed and looks like a million bucks. She makes videos for her Facebook group of the new lines as they coming in. And what do you think Melissa has because she makes her product look so desirable because of our marketing ability, she has forty million dollars in sales. Yeah. You heard that forty million dollars in sales. Another business. I've invested in his cousins, Maine, lobster was so successful. And so consistent in how they promote and social media. They create a page for every market they open in and they let their entrepreneurs promote like crazy in their local market, and they do so well because of it they sell themselves as well as they'll obser-, and then tons of people wanna come in. And also by a franchise what fabulous promoters do. They have the best lobster rolls of anyone. Of course, they do. But that's not what they're selling. They're selling their lore of making people won a lobster roll. So if you're going to use social media, you have to be authentically yourself. This is what I've discovered people out there following on social media. Don't follow you the minute. They sense anything. That's ingenuous. They drop out people are smarter than you think they know the difference. If you're yourself on social media, and the customer can sense that you're thin typically yourself, they will follow you. And it's an following you that you could promote like crazy your product and do better and better with what you do. And what you get when you make people want you. You get sells the lifeblood of all business sales the most essential thing. But you can't do it today without being good at social media.

How Straight D's Built My Business

"I got three questions this week from people that were not very good students and worried about it. I thought I would address it even though I know I've talked about it before you know, when I was in school the happiest sound the world was at three o'clock bell. When I heard that bell rang. I thought thank God. I'm out of this jailhouse off I would run as fast as I could to try to make a good day of what was already a horrible day for me being Barras in class being asked to read out loud and labeled yet again, the Dunkin school but thank God. I was kind of clever on my feet in one way when I got her school. I did not want to do homework that the other kids were doing. So I made best friends with Margaret Garrity. She was the kid down the block with the really thick glasses was an exceptional student and all I would have to do for Margaret is making new Chuck game on her sidewalk. And she would do all of my math all of my English and will of my geography and she didn't like a half hour flat. My God, it would've taken me six hours to do the same work, and I wouldn't have gotten any kind of accolades for it until market Garrity. Became my homework helper, I actually believed in school that I had a low I q thinking that an I had something to do with the as. And bees and season. For me. The diesel I got straight tease all the time. And I thought that meant that I was on the warder Chalan a really being stupid. But guess what? I wasn't. You know, what I learned? I learned that once I got that jailhouse cool school. I developed great skills and business independent of anything that I had learned in school. I found that I was gifted at certain areas because I had finesse my way through school and learn how to get good at other things that the smart kids weren't very good at I knew how to hire the right people. And guess what gave me that gift? It was because once you're loser. As a kid, you have great empathy, and you spot the losers, and you don't ever look down on anybody. When you're the dumb kid. The dumb kid doesn't get that privilege to look down on people. So as a result of that, I had empathy in spades. And that gave me the ability to read people and hire the right people for the right sharp. I always always was able to find someone to do the. Sure, I wasn't able to do. Well, like, redefining financial statement or figure out a mathematical equation. Forget it I was never gonna learn it. But in business, I learned that it can hire a lot of really really really smart people to do it for me the damn district. Kaplan, I recognized her as my future business partner because she had all the skill sets of a smart kid, and she could do them all for man. I could continue just being the chatty. Cathy, the charming kid? The one who talked everybody into doing things Estra Kaplan became my. Hi, hugh. You know sales people are key to the real estate business. And I found that in sales. I was pretty good. But I wasn't amazing. And yet I knew how identify sales people who are a lot better than me. And it was on the back of a thousand grade sales people that I built the company the Corcoran group today when I sit on shark tank, I very often have to do mathematical equations in my head like the other sharks. Trust me. I can't do it. I will actually work. Them out of my yellow legal pad that I sit there with trust me. I can't do it. But it was only two years into shark tank that I realized that Mark Cuban was really good at math. And all I ever do is ask them to do. My math format. He does it has the answer back to me. And he doesn't know it. But he's my new Margaret Garrity. So you could always find people to do the stuff you can't do and by doing that my whole life. I have been able to build a big successful business and also helped dozens and dozens entrepreneurs Bill their business because I know how to identify talent and build on it math has very little to do with almost everything in life as long as you could count change, and I can tell you people think it has a lot to do his shark tank. It has very little to do is shark tank. It's all about judging the right people. So what's most important on compensating for the skills? You don't have. Well, here's my secret formula. I only focus on the skills. I have there aren't many. I know how to size up people. I know how to motivate people. I know how to build an organizational structure those on my gifts. So I choose to build around my assets. I nor everything else I just filled on what I do. Well. And then I find somebody else to do all the stuff. I don't do. Well, so that's my formula. If you're not good at school. Don't worry about it. It's probably a very good sign that you're gonna find all the right people to help you build your empire. And that's how streak dis built my business.

Barbara Corcoran Tells You How To Choose Great People

Barbara Corcoran Tells You How To Choose Great People

"I thought maybe I would dole out a little advice here on how to choose the right people because I think I'm pretty good at it. The biggest problem building any businesses. Always the people. What do you think businesses made out of a lot of people might say dollars and cents? I say absolutely not. It's all something built on the hearts and souls and good efforts of a lot of people. So the most important decisions in your life, actually, having to do with your business and going way beyond your businesses deciding who you wanna let in who you want to surround yourself with not includes employee's business partners, spouses and friends, I'm very particular about people, I think maybe way way way too particular about people, but I know myself knowing that I've learned to be really particular about who I let into my life. I've learned to ask myself a few simple questions before deciding who I'm going to let in or lock out, and let me share those questions with you the first question, I asked myself when I'm hiring someone to work with is do I like and trust this person that comes long before are they capable of doing the job. It's a gut decision. And if I don't feel it in my bones and my stomach. I don't choose them. I don't even look to make an excuse to myself because when I don't feel right this usually a very good reason for it, even if I can't put my finger on it. Because the way I see it our gut instinct is a concentrated dose of our lifetime of experiences. So why shouldn't I trust it without explanation? So I'm out right away. If I don't trust someone I just don't hire them in my business. If I don't like them. Maybe that sounds trite plot don't hire them either. Why would I wanna work with someone? I don't mind. And if I'm hiring someone at my work, I always try to size up. How smart and how loyal they are? Why smart? Because smart people will push you ahead and create more opportunity than you could ever do on your own and you'll say excited about it. And why loyal because if you have someone who's phenomenal working with you that you really like and then not loyal by nature. If you're gonna lose them, and that's a heartbreaker, so I need to see the natural loyalty in an individual. And the one trait that I should have perhaps mentioned right up front is that I have to hire happy people. I learned long ago that if I hire an unhappy person, there's nothing I can do that's going to change him. Why if their parents should make them happy by the age of twenty one what am I going to do to change that and make them happy people when it comes to making friends, of course, I need happy people this enough stuff that happens to you in life that you don't need to welcome on happy people around you to make you miserable. Forget it. But the second most important trait in any friendship is big heartedness big-heartedness automatically comes with a bundle of breach rates big hearted. People generous the empathetic, and they always have your back. And what could you ask for more in a good friend

But I I had a fan on Twitter the gummy thinking about the word comeback. Everybody's talking about common back from disaster. It sounds pretty cool. But this guy was hit by hurricane Harvey. And it sounded to me like he was stuck trying to make a comeback with his business. And he went on to great detail. And it really broke my heart some going to talk about coming back, and what it really means. And I'd like to talk about comebacks because I've had quite a few misses myself, and I've lived through the mall, and so I am in a good position to dress the topic. Okay. First off people fix your comebacks as a spectacular event. Something maybe you've seen in the movies like the cowboy making the charge. I don't find comebacks to be that way. At all. I find that. It's a process. That's so discouraging can knock you on your ass and make you think you don't even know if you get up which direction you're gonna walk in that's pretty tough to recover from. But I can also tell you from building a business myself and working with so many entrepreneurs over the years is no such thing as a success story of any size, unless the person has been knocked down at least a half dozen times. And they've really learned the art of getting back up. So let me say a little bit more on the subject. I've always interpreted setbacks as a wakeup call. That's my spin on it because I've learned that over the years. It's an opportunity to make an abrupt change. I've always found that when things come totally out of the blue when you least expect it, and it's painful the moment, excruciatingly painful, and I think the main reason for that is because you've lost total control that you're accustomed to. But the same exact thing that happens quickly turns into the best thing that ever happened when you're able to look back now too damn bed. We can't look forward and see the future. And appreciate that. When it's happening, but it's just not in the cards. But I think I've catastrophe whether it be business a personal as a road sign giving you the opportunity change direction to actually sit down and really ask yourself. How happy were you in the direction you were traveling? Four anyway. And now what would make you much happier. I remember when my boyfriend went off and married my secretary. I thought I would die. But let me tell you something. It was the best thing that ever happened. I remember when I blew my first profit on homes on tape. Putting all my apartment's on videotape in my real estate. Brokerage come in law. So that money I thought oh my God. The first time I made money I lost all the money, but that turn into the internet. So my God. Thank God that happened. What an advantage. So a setback if you could look at it the way I've learned to see it as it really is is really the seat of comeback because it's in the pause that you give it some thought. And you get the chance to look at what you're in the first place totally different and figure out what direction you want to change. That's my spin.

"Barbara. And now it's time to answer your questions on business unusual. Sharon familly, s I'm in sales and talent management. I have two types of clients. The ones I sell in the ones I pitched to it's like, I'm representing the buyer and the seller. I'm having a hard time delegating. Well, and not giving up what I do best which is selling Sharon, the most important part of any business is the selling because if you don't have sales, you don't continue to make more sales, you business doesn't grow. So you have a quagmire, which is you businesses growing, you spend a lot of time selling, but the other stuff is getting in the way, I know from personal experience that the people in the world that have the hardest time delegating are great sales people because they control freaks, and they like to control everything along the way to make sure the sale comes through. Here's my best advice to you sit down and make a list of every single item. That's. Supports the selling process that doesn't directly to sales. If you could get a list of all of those items and find someone else to do them. You will double your sales revenue, and I say that not lightly because I made more superstars at more sales people that didn't want to delegate in my life than probably anyone in the universe. So sit down today make the list and get rid of all those items, you'll double your sales within six months. And that's all the questions. We have time for today. If you have a question tweeted up Barbara Corcoran, and I may just answered on a future episode. You've been listening to business unusual with me. Barbara Corcoran presented by on deck.

"Loans. If you haven't checked out my new series the end of the world with Josh Clark. The now's a great time to start the holidays are over the doldrums of winter had begun. And there's no better time to explore existential dread than right now. But wait, there's more to the end of the world than that. Yes. The series is about existential risks. But it's also about hope the threats that are coming our way that could wipe humans right out of existence. Could also be just the thing that makes us band together. In a way that humanity never has before in the end of the world. I take you on a journey across time and space from the moment and asteroid collided with earth in set off a chain of events that wiped out the dinosaurs to the post biological future where we live in a digital format. If we don't already we'll explore big questions like whether we're alone in the universe and exactly how artificial intelligence could take control of our world from us. It also has a. Score and cinematic sound design. So it's an adventure for your mind. Which is just the thing to snap. You out of the winter blondes all ten episodes of the end of the world with Josh Clark are available for you to binge now on apple podcasts the iheartradio app or wherever you get podcasts. And now it's time to answer your questions on business unusual gala writes in I live in a very small town. The pool of skilled even unskilled labor is very limited. I find that instead of running my business. I'm stuck trying to fix all the minor issues that come up since I have no one else to take care of it. What do I do? Well, let me say there's always someone to take care of everything gala if you look hard enough and believe you can find them. So your first enemies you have it in your head that it's hard to find people and you're mistaken. What I think you need to do is think outside the usual pools of labour that everybody else's using maybe find part time employees is by looking for women groups who are raising the children and get together and tapping into them for part time work, they have the spare time while the kids are in school. You could also tap into high school kids available after class every day or retired people looking to engage themselves in something other than just relaxing the. The beauty to tap into local groups on a part time basis as you can fluctuate their hours and wages based on what you can afford, and what you actually need week to week simply because they're more flexible than the average worker who needs to have of nine to five commitment to stay around. You may also be a perfectionist, and I suggest you probably are from your question. And you feel you have to do everything yourself unless it's done perfectly, and that could be a real obstacle to your changing. And if you strike out with finding local help don't forget about looking online is Amazon mechanical Turk that can virtually fill any back office need, you might have. And this online services like task grab it that will provide just about any work of any need, you could possibly imagine. So stop thinking, you can't do and realize there are many more options, you could check into to make sure you have the needed help to build your business. Think about that a little bit. I learned after a couple of years in. Business that when it comes to delegating. Eighty percent was always good enough by that. I mean, you have to let go of your perfectionist idea that you're the best person to do everything and accept that job done eighty percent as well by someone else should be just fine with you. And that's all the questions. We have time for today. If you have a question tweeted up our Corcoran, and I may just answered on a future episode. You've been listening to business unusual with me.

First off let me say don't be afraid of it. What's beautiful about a stigmatize businesses? People are talking about it already. And so you just have to figure way to plug into that the first thing I'd do is look for smart sponsorship, and maybe sponsor a competitive eating contest or a concert series or a speaker series talking about the health benefits of marijuana today. There are so many there. I'm sure you could think of a few. But the main thing is that stigmas get people talking and that reminds people you're there. It's your job to take advantage of the talking even negative reviews. Bill business. So take advantage of the controversy. Don't be afraid of it as not every business can do that. Stephanie from Nashville asked I just started my real estate business five months ago. I was curious how long did it take you to sell your first house? Any advice to help sell mine when I got started. I wasn't even selling homes. I started my agency as a rental agency why? Because when you rent an apartment in New York City as agent you get paid right away. That was my number one goal to get my hands on the cash. So I could stay in business. But over the years, I hired thousands of agents who sold this was selling apartments, and I can tell you there's no pattern as to what's a good start. Or what's good indication that you're going to be a superstar not what I would suggest you do is focus on something else versus how long is it gonna take me? How long's it gonna take me? Because in my business. I found it took anywhere from one month. More typically, four months, and sometimes my best superstars didn't make the first deal for nine months sometimes a year. So throw that out the window what you should focus on. Instead is keep a scorecard as to how many customers live breathing. Warm customers you're out on the street with showing apartments and try to up that average. So if you're only going out with one

"Advantage. Ladies listen up. I'm talking about being a girl in business today. When I started out the real estate sales business in New York City was a business that was entirely owned and managed by the men, but it was worked by the women when I would walk into a room filled with the sea of men in grey navy blue suits, I realized that I had an advantage as a war. I had a short skirt great legs and high heels, and I decided right then in there, I would always wear red suit. And it became my trademark when I walked into any room all the men noticed me. And that's about as far as I went using my girl cart. I can tell you the great advice. Vantage I had building my female business in a world. That was run by men is I never thought about myself as girl, I think thinking of yourself as an oddity or woman or the odd personnel. Always takes your power away. I would walk into room. What did I really see? I saw my competitors. I saw myself as a fierce competitor, not as a woman competing, but a fierce competitor, just like the guys. And I always kept my eye on that full. What do I have to do to win this? That's all I ever thought. What do I have to do to win this? I soon learn as I built a large business that I had an advantage being a woman, I wasn't focused on it. But it became clear I was hiring women to work for a woman, and I understood what they're going through. I was a mom with kids running a business. They were moms with kids trying to go back to business trying to struggle to make a living. And so I could walk in their shoes. Shoes and talk their language. Everyone who worked for me for the first ten years. I was in business was female. And that was okay. With me. I had a female support staff female managers female sales people, and they all love me because I was just like them what an advantage. And now I'll tell you the little bonus. I got when it comes to competition. None of the men ever took me seriously. They saw me come and go. They didn't think I was going to be a real competitor. Until I became the number one rival in the business, and then they stood up and took notice and guess what? Too late. I was already the number one broker off when I started out real estate sales in New York City was owned and run by all men, but it was worked by women ownership was an all boys club. And I was the only woman in any room instead of letting that intimidate me and see my gender..

He was actually on a podcast called the red pill podcasts, you said this. Yes, he said there was a time when I would go to sleep almost every night when he had the money to fly away from me. And I was worried every night that I was gonna lose him said I thought he was going to die. I thought he was going to go to sleep one night. And he would have so much crap in his system that he would not wake up the next morning. He goes on to say, you know, the Justin is obviously clean himself up that it had to be a decision that Justin made because they all did interventions right before his. Arrest?
