The Sharks on ABC's hit show Shark Tank aren't always ferocious. Barbara Corcoran--the New York City real estate mogul--is especially adept at using charm as much as pressure to get her deals done. Maybe it's her real estate business training: Corcoran stages a deal just the way she stages a Fifth Avenue penthouse. Her deals smell great and look full of light. She's a good colleague, too, apparently--just look at her pitch to her 271K Twitter followers: VOTE for Robert Herjavec!
Herjavec is the dancing shark, as in the Kym Johnson-paired competitor on ABC's sparkling extravaganza Dancing with the Stars. Most business people will tell you that persuasion--not raw power--is the most effective tool they possess. And that's especially true when the business at hand is something as subjective as dance. Now do what Barbara says! Maybe she'll find you a penthouse someday.
Here's how to vote for Dancing with the Stars.
