Distance Travelled By Millennial Generation

“I want to eat my cake and have it’, this is what a HR manager said when referring to the new influx of millennial generations they have to hire to replace retiring baby boomers. He described them as opportunistic driven and ill-mannered crop of hippies with the trademark ‘I want it my way, don’t get in my way’.

Who are the millennial generation? Millennial generation refers to those born between early 80’s and the new millennial, year 2000. Neil Howe and William Strauss, authors of the 1991 book Generations: The History of America’s Future, 1584 to 2069, are often credited with coining the term. They are also called generation Y, trophy generation, newcomers, digital generation, new age generation, generation Me, Peter pan or Boomerang generation.

What is particular about this generation? They have become increasingly important because they are the most educated, trendy, exposed, technology savvy and toughest generation to manage when compared with baby boomers (born between 1946 – 1964), Generation X (1965 – 1979) and even Generation Z (2000 to present day).  Millennials (or generation Y) have become a dominant force in the labor market and recently become the largest share of the American workforce according to new Pew Research Center analysis of U.S. Census Bureau data.

I love being the child

Babies never have to cook or clean up

They are catered for every single hour

I want to be carried over and swung every time

I love every morning ritual

Bathed for, cared for, dressed for….

Creating Your Reality

Reality Ph1

It is okay not to have iPhone, all the girls in your class has it but you enjoy your old nokia

It is okay not to leave a life of falsehood just to fit in the brotherhood

It is okay to always want to have it simple, big is expensive and carries weight

What is not okay is pretending to tag along


No trouble no fun

It is okay to be out of ideas, may be that was the idea

It is okay to wear sweat pants on J’s, yo feelin’ yourself

No one misses you while you’re lost, find yourself first (more…)

10 Things To Consider When Co-Leasing

While starting a business and at the same time searching for a strategic location in the market you are looking for can be challenging. With the prices of property rising at the turn of each year, you wonder if it is possible to have a wall and brick location for your new business idea or non-profit.

Your business can be so many things but cannot afford to be far away from its intended niche. The more traffic you have, the better chance of turning a profitable venture or a fulfilling non-profit organization. However, for new business owners, a commercial lease is a daunting and herculean undertaking that requires inventive research and diligence.

I currently have the same challenge of getting a sizable location for a non-profit I chair. It dawned on me that I could do a co-lease with another non-profit since most of our programs runs in the evenings and weekend. That was how we got another non-profit to co-lease with us who are also looking for same opportunity. Below are some of the factors I considered;

Living In The Past

One of the best decisions in life one can make is dealing with present reality by managing attending situations of life within contemporary means. It is often said that it is the decisions made and actions undertaken in the past that brought us where we are now. That is looking at it from a systemic angle.

With life come choices and chances. There is different between stand-up and stand-up now. You can easily recall how many times you came late to the party (delayed in taking a necessary step to achieving a portion of success). Mind you, the world comes with its surprises. Even the most gifted aren’t the most celebrated but the fortunate.  We are fortunate with a lot of things but who can discern the unfortunate circumstances of life. The designer of the universe knows better than we mortals. (more…)

Copulation increases population
Population is critical to production
Production is taken by corruption
Corruption is the face of extortion
Extortion is healed by correction  
Correction is preceded by reflection
Reflection is key to revelation
