Each generation is raised in a vastly different context, and it’s important to acknowledge our differences and identify ways to ensure that everyone is supported in their evolution process. Today we are joined by Marc Joseph of babyboomer.org to discuss these intergenerational differences, as well as the diversity within each generation. Marc shares his opinion on how the adults of today can best set Generation Alpha up for success, and why he feels the generation in question is the greatest history has seen, thus far. We learn about Marc's journey as a writer and an entrepreneur, and why he feels so many small businesses fail. Tune in to hear more about the shared experiences of baby boomers, and the noble purpose Marc is fulfilling for the “lost” generation on babyboomer.org.
