Generational conflict has been around for as long as there has been 2 or more generations present on the plant. What makes today different? Social media and the Internet have become the greatest equalizers. These innovations have enabled individuals to start a business or build a brand in an afternoon at a local coffee shop for $0.

It’s become imperative that we understand tomorrow’s trends in order to leverage them as our catalysts for mega success in the future.
