Millenials and College students face a new age. Of late in the news we repeatedly are told of how college graduates are underemployed or can’t find jobs. As a parent of teens looking to enter that eventual pool, I say “Great”. The working world is not what I entered into in the early 1990’s. Manufacturing Jobs have either gone overseas or been automated with the advance of technology leaving the younger generation in a state of turmoil and flux.
Why do I say “Great,” you ask….well the simple fact is that poverty and being uncomfortable will be the stimulus that pushes this highly educated group to create the new economy. The wave of entrepreneurial creation that will be born in the next 20 years will be unlike anything us Gray Hairs have seen before. As a business broker, I look forward with optimism to the next several decades as these budding entrepreneurs create new businesses that will move our economy forward.
So stop the whining and lamenting….use the tension to create new businesses that meet the needs of the future consumers. Every great economic boom has been born from innovation driven by an individual or group being creative and thinking out of the box. Imagine what this new generation can do with the technology they have at their fingertips #buyabusiness #sellabusiness #createabusiness
