What’s the deal with young adults born from 1982-2000?  Do we call them Generation Y? The Millennial Generation? How do you reach them? Is there any hope for our future? (kidding!)

In this brief video interview, I talk with Nate Bebout — an early member of the Millennial Generation himself — about 7 Challenges he’s identified with this generation.  Understanding the background behind these challenges will help you be more effective in reaching them with your message, recruiting them to join your organization and getting them really passionate about what you do.

This is part 1 of 2.  In our second video, Nate & I will discuss 5 opportunities that exist to influence the Millennial Generation.
