“A penguin walks through the door wearing a sombrero…” (#BrazenStuff 1.20.13)
Happy Friday Sunday, Brazenites!
As you may have noticed, the Brazen blog was down on Friday for a period as our IT team worked diligently to bring it back up. As a result, our Friday link roundup did not go out as scheduled.
But we didn’t want you to miss out on the goodness, so we’re putting it up now. Better late than never, right?

2. “Location, location, location” isn’t just for real estate; if you’re thinking of starting your own biz, check out the 5 best states for entrepreneurs.
3. Who better to teach you how to negotiate than a top FBI investigator?
