20 Brazen Young Professionals to Watch in 2012
One of the best ways to make strides in your career is by watching others succeed, by making note of how they do it.
That’s why we’ve selected 20 young professionals to keep your eye on this year, go-getters under 35 who are pushing the envelope and influencing their industry — and sometimes even the world.
You may recognize a few of these names, but we made an effort to feature Millennials who aren’t regulars on watch lists, folks who are up-and-coming. Some are entrepreneurs, while others work for public companies, government or non-profits, often holding positions that are more senior than you’d expect for someone their age.
Many — but not all — have a strong personal brand. Most importantly, for each of the young people we’ve chosen, their best work is still ahead of them.
For future Brazen watch lists, we may implement a nomination process, but this list was compiled by us, the Brazen Life editors, incorporating suggestions from the Brazen community via our blog, Facebook and Twitter.
Of course, lots of young professionals are rockin’ it in one way or another, and it’s impossible to spotlight them all. But here’s our take on who will be influential in the coming year and beyond.
