Barbara Corcoran, from the popular ABC reality show Shark Tank, is the multimillionaire entrepreneur. Know as someone who is brash and blunt, bold and courageous, Barbara is also known as a real estate mogul in New York City. Her jackpot success came with the sale of her real estate company, The Corcoran Group, for $66 million in 2001. She started the business with a $1,000 loan from her boyfriend 28 years earlier.

In a recently posted interview with Entrepreneur, Corcoran speaks about the importance of handling rejection. In this 2 minute clip, Corcoran notes:

“Show me an entrepreneur who can take a hit, and I’ll show you a good entrepreneur…”

Those who are able to work through rejection, and who learn to fail well, turn out to be the best entrepreneurs. Rejection is just part of doing business.
