Being Brazen

Brazen’s Executive Social Media Bootcamp

August 17, 2011

Living in my world, I forget there are many people who aren’t using the tools available at their fingertips.

Take a Spin: Brazen Careerist’s Networking Roulette

November 9, 2010

In sorority recruitment, we used to have a system to meet as many potential new members as possible. We’d conduct rotations where we’d try to learn something about these women beyond “she’s nice.” When you have just a couple of  minutes, you really have to work hard to get those great factoids about a person […]

Figuring Out the Script

May 25, 2010

Being out of practice has changed my own comfort level. When I step up, the adrenalin rushes through me so quickly, my body is shaking violently. I can’t channel her as easily anymore, and I don’t know if she’ll show up this time. What if it’s just me? For years I was a pretty committed […]

The Seth Godin Brazen webcast was today. I’ve decided that with the death of Elizabeth Post this week, we should acknowledge something: People are rude!
