Remember the Why Generation Y Yuppies Are Unhappy article?

Summary: Gen Y Protagonists & Special Yuppies = GYPSYs Our parents (who were told to build practical careers & worked hard for many years before they got their lush green lawn careers) raised us to be ambitious, wildly optimistic and follow our passions. Oh, and instilled in us that we are really really special--like unicorns.

So, we all grew up thinking we were going to be the unicorn with the lushest lawn of a career. After only a few years of hard work, of course. Gypsy Gypsy Gypsy career

But in reality, the bad economy, too high of expectations, delusions about our self worth, and taunting from image crafting on social media prevented these expectations to come to fruition. We are not the unicorn with the amazingly lush green grass career.

Unless we do something about it.

Step 2: This is where Millennial Week comes in.

Let's take control of our careers, do what we love, and be successful doing it. Okay? I'd love to & it looks like Millennial Week DC is going to get us started on figuring out how to do it.

Hope to see you all there!
