This week I was planning on debunking some stupid myths when it comes to the Millennial generation.

Some of the points covered in this week’s show include: – The power in …

Given that Millennials are taking even longer to get married, if they do at all, I have to ask, Is Modern Marriage a Trap? This week on the Surrounded by Idiots Radio Podcast, my special guest, Millennial dad Josh, and me dig deep into these questions about marriage: 1. When did the concept of marriage begin? 2. Why did people get married back in the day? 3. When did Love and Monogamy start to matter in a marriage? 4. Why do Millennials have so many reasons / excuses NOT to get married? 5. Why do so many people feel pressured …

Millennial Sauce asks the Question, “Is the Customer Really Always Right?”

Anthony Dufresne Millennial Blog, Millennial Issues Leave a Comment

Growing up and having to wait tables or work the register or answer the phone, I frequently had the thought of the customer pretty much, basically, rarely being right…sadly though, it was more from a perspective of “you’re a pain in the ass, shut up and get out of here!”, rather than “this is clearly a time where my reality is not gelling with your reality”. Emotional Button Pushing Yeah, I know, it probably feels better to act out the yelling at a wackadoo customer, but that actually shows you are following your feelings down the rabbit hole…you’re letting some …

Millennial Sauce Blog: What is Balance?

Anthony Dufresne Millennial Blog, Millennial Issues Leave a Comment

submitted by “Mom-llennial” Have you ever tried to balance a book on your head while standing on one leg and clapping your hands? As a Millennial and a new mom, that is what my life feels like when I feel out of balance. I am a person who doesn’t do well without some form of structure. I need to know that I can get everything done and give others the time they need in the little time that I have. If  life feels out of balance, it makes us extremely uncomfortable and causes us to lash out on others. So …

Millennial Sauce – Patience and Perspective

Anthony Dufresne Millennial Blog, Millennial Issues Leave a Comment

by Amanda P. Patience has never come easy for me. Ironically, I am now a full time mom and a teacher so I had to learn patience quickly. When you spend your day in a classroom full of 27 screaming students who don’t take directions well, and come home to a toddler banging her head against a wall because I won’t let her eat cookies for dinner, it is easy to lose yourself. I have had to take a step back and realize that not everyone thinks the same way I do, or does things at the same rate as …
