Figuring out how to work with the "Millennial" generation has often been a pain point for me at my strategic marketing and PR firm. The reason comes from the different experiences between millennials and those, like me, who were born in the 1970s or earlier.

Nancy Davis Kho

Growing up, we didn't talk about that kind of thing. It would have been considered scandalous. I was raised to believe that God had certain plans and expectations for me as a woman, and to err from that path would be sinful.

Let's face it; we live in a youth-oriented society.
