CORNER OFFICE High Heels? They Just Don’t Fit  Published: January 23, 2010 This interview with  Bobbi Brown,  founder of Bobbi Brown Cosmetics, was  conducted and condensed by  Adam Bryant.   Marilynn K.

A.  Communicating. To me, this is probably the biggest thing. If it’s the right  person, I can barely speak and they understand what I’m saying. But if it’s
