People born between the early 1980s and the early 2000s are the generation often referenced in mainstream media when it comes to the ups and downs of business, finance, and consumer culture. This demographic—often referred to as millennials—have the advantage of growing up during a time when pop culture and technology was on the cusp of evolving into the highly digitized society that we now live and breathe in today.
Another thing that millennials are known for is their high degree of idealism, particularly when it comes to their career goals. Many millennials possess this incredible drive to become successful individuals, however, they can’t seem to translate their desires of excellence into tangible achievements. This largely boils down to the negative traits that millennials sometimes exhibit, such as the lack of pragmatism and a sense of entitlement.
