This morning I attended WOBI’s seminar on entrepreneurship, hosted by Barbara Corcoran. Barbara is a dynamo and friend. At the event, men and women were actively networking, sharing smart ways of growing their companies as well as insights on gathering venture capital.
All eyes were on Barbara as she shared her “10 Secrets to Business Success” (stay tuned for our video, coming tomorrow afternoon). I also met a few winners from from ABC’s hit series Shark Tank, one of whom you’ll be meeting in our video (hint: she’s feisty, and she sells phenomenal cakes)!.
A few highlights from Barbara’s talk:
- Mistakes are inevitable, so learn from them. If you do, you can turn them around and make them work for you.
- Build a culture based on fun. Creative solutions come from creating a playful atmosphere with your team.
- Down economic times can actually give small business an edge. Everyone is struggling, which evens the playing field.
More to come in tomorrow’s video…
