Hey my loves! Today I have a really exciting post for you all, it’s something I’ve never done before – a book review! I had the opportunity to read this new release from Alison Lea Sher and I’m obsessed with it. I highly recommend this book for millennials who feel like they’re doomed and even those who feel like they aren’t.
The Millennial’s Guide to Changing the World: A New Generation’s Handbook to Being Yourself and Living with Purpose is a an amazing read for all generations. I was instantly sucked right into the book and couldn’t put it down. There was so much insight and advice that I needed to hear. I personally feel like I’m stuck at this age, I’m 22, kind of confused about what I want out of life, trying to make the best decisions for myself, my peers and the planet – it’s all super overwhelming and this book dives right into all of the worries that us millennials face daily.
“Many millennials were told that we could do anything we wanted with our lives, but we weren’t equipped with the appropriate tools and skills.”
Above is one of my favorite quotes from the book, and its only in the second chapter. I can relate to this and I’m sure you can too. Growing up we were always asked what we want to be when we’re older, I’m sure many of you said a pop star, actress/actor and maybe some of you said a neurologist or astronaut. We were never told that our dreams won’t become a reality at that age, we were encouraged to follow our dreams – but I feel like as an adult now, that’s totally changed. I feel like some people question my major and college and I’ve heard a lot of “Good luck finding a job in your field” lately. People need to stop looking down on millennials and believe in them, like they did when we were younger.
This book is a great read and I highly recommend it. You can get it on Amazon here, but it’s also available for purchase at Barnes & Nobel and other independent retailers. Definitely check out Alison’s website, which is all about why millennial are important in the workforce and how Millennial Inc can help bridge the generation gap when it comes to training new employees.
I hope you guys enjoyed the post! Interested in getting a PDF version of the book? Leave me a comment or DM me on Twitter and I can give you the deets!
Thanks so much for reading, as always <3
