I came across a great blog yesterday written by Millennial Daniel Newman entitled “Time for a Millennial to Speak for Millennials.”  I wanted to highlight it in my blog this week for two reasons: 1. I think it’s awesome and I wanted to share it with our readers, and 2. I think it’s important to hear from actual Millennials on the subject of our generation.  Too many times the research comes from older generations, and while completely valid, tends to lack the Millennial “voice” so to speak.

So please take a moment to read Daniel’s blog post.

My hope is that we can continue to shed light on (and dispel some myths about)  Gen Y while also continuing to promote understanding, empathy, and engagement between all generations.

I’d love to hear any comments/reactions to the myths Daniel highlights.  Please feel free to comment below.
