If You Don’t Have Big Breasts, Put Ribbons on Your Pigtails:
And Other Lessons I Learned from My Mom
As one of ten kids in a blue-collar family in Edgewater, New Jersey, Barbara Corcoran didn’t have many material advantages. She shared her bedroom with five sisters and shared her socks in a communal sock drawer. Yet she grew up to have plenty of self-confidence, because her mother had an amazing gift for nurturing the unique talents in each of her children. Barbara’s mom didn’t know much about business, but she understood how the world works, and how to make the most of what you’ve got.
Corcoran's humanity, humor and wisdom gently convey worthwhile lessons for those who would like to succeed on their own terms. -- Miami Herald
