Frugality is a career tool | Penelope Trunk's Brazen Careerist

Penelope Trunk

The most productive people in the world seem to be the most diverse and balanced.

To give you a sense of how complicated it is, I do not actually own the name Brazen Careerist — I sold equity in the name, and it is owned by my company.

What makes a blog successful? | Penelope Trunk's Brazen Careerist

While I'm on the topic of sharing posts, I think you do a good job of linking to other sources which helps to make your blog successful. Is this your first time here?
