A Site You Should Know About: Brazen Careerist


I've met some really cool people this year online which is funny because 10 years ago being friends with people online that you'd never met was creepy.
Years later, I made a career out of it and one of the places that helped me meet a lot of those cool people was Brazen Careerist. It's a social community for next gen professionals where you can meet other people at different places in their careers. I've e-mailed back and forth with people helping them ask for a raise or how to start your own business and they have helped me with problems like:
Help, I hate my blog lately.
How to manage your career if you're creative (meaning, I can't manage a calendar).
Is a long distance relationship totally out of the question if you have a demanding career?
How to find a mentor.

They've relaunched today so go meet some people. Here's some of my favorites:

Jun Loayza
Matt Cheuvront

i always wished i had time to give them a go, but with my blog and a bazillion side sites already, it would just be too much to even think about in more than a fleeting thought.

It's so fun to see all these posts poppping up around the web, from many close (online) friends all so excited for Brazen's new launch.

You're also one of my favorites and it has been so good to connect, share music, tips, thoughts and blog posts :)

Thanks for the shout-out! Brazen is responsible for a lot of great introductions (even more so then I realize sometimes). It's nice to see the site get a facelift and take a more 'social' approach. Here's to connecting even more in the future! Cheers!
