How Connecting Across Generations = Hope
The short answer is, when I run across a story I think will resonate with our audience, I jump on it.
For this episode, I didn’t have to look very far.
Literally across my desk.
No Subject Off Limits
As you might imagine, we talk a lot. About pretty much everything, especially when it comes to the podcast, which she helps produce and market.
And since we’re both parents of young adults, we talk about that, too.
So when I decided to launch this series amplifying the voices of GenZ and Millennials, I asked Jodi if she and her daughter, Colette, would join me on the podcast.
Lucky for all of us, they said yes.
What Drives Millennial Decision-Making
Jodi has been working with me at Linda Lorelle Media for a little over three years.
I was interested in talking with them after Jodi shared with me some of Colette’s perspectives about her future, what is influencing her decision-making and the impact on Jodi as a loving parent who wants the best for her child.
In some ways, it reminds of me conversations with my own Millennial daughter, but interesting, additional themes also emerged.
Hope for the Future
At the end of the day, I think these conversations are important because they help us better understand what each other is going through from a generational perspective.
And from a human perspective.
My generation is leaving a profoundly troubled world with existential consequences for the next generations to deal with.
Sometimes it’s hard for them — and for us — to have hope for the future.
But we have to keep looking for it.
I feel blessed to find hope in conversations like this one.
Here’s hoping you find it, too.
