Millennial Musings


Millennials are the new “Greatest Generation.” Okay, I’m a little biased because, well, I am a millennial.  However, I feel pride in my own generation and the change they are creating in the world.

Research proves it and it can be felt in just about any facet of life – Millennials are doing things differently than ever before.  Whether it’s money, career, relationships, philanthropy, or politics, Millennials are bringing a fresh perspective to the world we live in and making it a better place.  Yes, we are labeled as narcissistic, technology-dependent kids, but we are challenging the way things have been done for decades.

My goal is to share the captivating ways Millennials continue to shake things up. I’ve done firsthand research of Millennials in the nonprofit world, but the issues and changes they continue to address in so many other arenas are what will really shatter the status quo we have been used to for far too long.

Look here every Monday for my own take on how Millennials, are a force to be reckoned with.  It may be advice for Millennials as they navigate finishing school and starting their careers, to highlighting tips for how Millennials can navigate the challenges of finances, relationships and more!

I’ll also be including a list of links of Millennials in the news, whether it’s the latest research, or the latest question Millennials are asking.  Check back to the Millennial Musings page for links, and the blog roll for any posts of my own!
