Barbara Corcoran Shares What to Do If You’ve Been Laid Off

Barbara Corcoran has a message for those who have been affected by layoffs in recent days.

In a video posted to Instagram on Thursday that’s since garnered over 5,000 likes, the “Shark Tank” star offered her advice to those who had recently lost their jobs, noting that she has also been laid off several times in her career.

“I learned you can’t feel sorry for yourself,” Corcoran said. “I also learned that there’s always something right around the corner if you’re not hiding out.”

“So get up there and get going,” she added. “You’re gonna get something better and remember to send your boss a ‘thank you’ — he’s done you a favor.”

“Preach! Best thing that can happen for you sometimes,” another said. “Thanks for the reminder!”
