The Entrepreneurial Lives of Millennials

Society has a love/hate relationship with Millennials right now. Especially when it comes to looking at them in the job market. Either you love to love them, or you love to hate them. There’s not much room in between these two schools of thought. That is unless you look at the facts about Millennials from an objective perspective.

Regardless of your feelings towards Millennials, you have to admit one thing. This is the world that they were groomed for. For the first time in human history we have a generation entering the workforce that has no idea what a world without computers even looks like. The majority of this generation can barely remember what it is like to not have a cell phone. The fact is that the world at a rate faster than ever, and this speed is increasing at an exponential rate. The catalyst in this equation is obvious: Millennials, who are also known as digital natives. This is not even close to where this line of thinking ends either.

When potentially hiring for a job you must consider that not only are Millennials far better suited to live and work in this world, but they also created it. Companies like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Snapchat are all clearly designed for Millennials, but now we’re also seeing older, more established companies like Nike and Whole Foods reap the benefits of a society driven by Millennials who want to be more active and eat healthier. Millennials are spending lots of money, so who knows how to sell to them better than other Millennials?

No one.

Perhaps this new Millennial oriented world can teach Gen X’ers and Baby Boomers a thing or two about keeping pace with us, and maintaining good habits as well.

Millennials are working hard, but they also know how to rest. Millennials get an average of nine hours of sleep per night. One could make the assumption more sleep would make for a more rested, productive workforce. They also keep their priorities in check by accomplishing daily goals, and understanding that salary is more important than social media freedom. This generation’s work ethic doesn’t stop there though.

Millennials are great multitaskers. Research has shown that Millennials switch media venues 27-times in an hour on average. This is something that is attributed to the technological evolution that took place during their youth.
