After failing at twenty-two other jobs, Barbara Corcoran borrowed $1000 from her boyfriend, quit her job as a diner waitress, and started a tiny real estate office in New York City. Using twenty-four unconventional lessons learned from her mom, Barbara built that tiny company into a $4 billion business, and today she’s richer than her wildest childhood dreams. Barbara’s hilarious stories and her mom’s pithy advice—from "If you want to be a cheerleader, you better know the cheers" to "Jumping out the window will make you either an ass or a hero"—are bound to inspire greatness in any reader. This national bestseller (previously titled Use What You’ve Got) will make you feel better about yourself and teach you to look at obstacles in a whole different way.
