Who Are the Millennials

Surely you’ve heard all the stereotypes that center around the Millennial Generation – they are lazy, entitled, narcissistic, and don’t value hard work. However, the Millennials aren’t so offended by these stereotypes, as most of them don’t care. Instead, Millennials are proving to be a force for good throughout business and family environments. They choose experiences over “stuff”, they value fathers being involved in the daily ins and outs of parenting, and they care about the environment.
Millennials, or people born in the years 1981 through 1996, are proving to be just as a formidable source of change as the Baby Boomer generation. These 20 and 30 somethings have something to say, and they are changing the world around them because of it.

At Open Book Open Hearts, we want to know what you have to say. Tell us more about you, the stereotypes you face (and if you even care about what other generations think of you), what you are struggling with and what you are succeeding at.
