It has been said time and time again by the older generations that Millenials are self-observed, attention seeking, and sensitive individuals. Excuse Me? The same millennials who created and allow small businesses to thrive? The same millennials that brought fashion designers back from the grave? Or the same millennials who could give two f*cks about hiding their thoughts when speaking on injustice. Come on now, yeah we take 500 selfies but we also brought back creativity, being yourself, and refusal to be oppressed by society.
“Millennials are demonstrating they’re a new driving force,” says John Swanciger, CEO of Manta. “It’s no longer assumed that recent graduates will enter the traditional workforce. Companies will have to adjust as millennials become a bigger force in the small-business space.”
Millenials have been quoted to have more of a preparation when it comes to execute and achieve our small businesses. Companies are now realizing this could be potential threats. With so many fashion brands closing their doors and online brands excelling, we see the shift in how businesses are conducting themselves.
We even see companies like Viacom & Taco Bell changing their corporate structure to adapt to the generation of their ideal target. Creating catchy advertisements and using party like imagery to promote the fun of the brand.
So, why all of the hate towards this generation? It seems they are the ones creating tech companies, new advertising methods, successful start-ups, the importance of equality, and promoting enjoy your life methods?
“One of the largest generations in history is about to move into its prime spending years. Millennials are poised to reshape the economy; their unique experiences will change the ways we buy and sell, forcing companies to examine how they do business for decades to come.” – via Goldman Sachs
So remember as millennials come into their own, encourage those young queens and don’t down them. Teach each other and grow from each other. Show why we all are made to be queens.
