The room where you work, whether that's at home or in an office, should probably be 77 degrees. Why? This episode begins with an explanation of why 77 degrees is the perfect working temperature. https://www.shrm.org/hr-today/news/hr-news/Pages/toohottoocold.aspx This is the time of year when people tend to set new goals for themselves. The process of how you set them can have a big impact on whether or not you actually achieve them, according to Michael Bungay Stanier. Often described as one of the top coaches in the world, Michael is author of a book called, How to Begin: Start Doing Something That Matters (https://amzn.to/3qL3UiH). Listen as he and I discuss how to set goals and improve your chances that you will actually achieve them.  It's weird how we lump people into groups depending on what generation they are in. There are baby boomers, millennials, Gen Xers etc. Is there any validity to the idea that people born in a certain generation share traits and characteristics? Is it fair to make generalizations about a group based on when they were born? Those turn out to be interesting and complicated questions according to Bobby Duffy, professor of public policy and director of the Policy Institute at King's College in London. Bobby is also author of the book, The Generation Myth: Why When You're Born Matters Less Than You Think (https://amzn.to/3eUyIrL). Listen as he joins me for a very interesting conversation about this.  One way colds and other germs get spread in a household is by way of your toothbrush.

Tim Baker talks through the unique financial needs and considerations of Generation X. Key Points From This Episode An introduction to today's topic of Gen X; the sandwich generation. How Gen Xers are often providing for their parents, plus a young child or a child over 18. How these financial expectations are often overlooked or pushed to the side.  We talk about average incomes, the rising cost of education, and what their debt load is.  The impact of the ups and downs in the last few years on their financial mindsets.   How Gen X wants stability but might not have the financial plan or means to get it.  You can take out education loans for your kids, you can't get retirement loans. Hear how Tim Baker follows the one-third plan and a reminder of what that is. Relying on the act of planning, versus having a plan.  Some important questions Gen Xers can ask themselves to get financially stable.  Making sure you're not on autopilot, particularly in your peak earning years. Tackling the fear and inertia of having left it so late in life to start saving and planning. Having empathy for Gen X needing different priorities from the previous generation.  That Gen X really wasn't dealt a great hand economically, but the problems are fixable.  Reigniting the vision and finding the motivation to do things differently.  Speaking about the lack of confidence in social security for future retirement.  Tim shares a great exercise you can do to check your retirement age and benefits!

Welcome to part two of the Native Digitals series here at Lochhead on Marketing. On this episode, we have a conversation with Hannah Grady Williams on how your business can tap into the Native Digitals workforce. For those who are not familiar of what Native Digitals are, give part one of this series a quick listen (LOM 137). Hannah Grady Williams is the Gen Z CEO Advisor, sort of like a Gen Z whisperer for CEOs and executive. She is the author of a new book called A Leader's Guide to Unlocking Gen Z: Inside strategies to empower your team. If you are over the age of 35, which is a Native Analog, this is a must-listen podcast. Because Hannah has a tremendous amount of insight for how Native Analogs can bridge the gap to work, recruit, and build our companies with a whole new slew of Native Digitals workforce. Generation Differences: Gen X vs Gen Z, Native Digital vs Native Analog When asked if the generation differences also coincide with the category of Native Analogs and Native Digitals, Hannah says that there are overlaps, but they are not completely the same. These overlaps are more on how each generation treats technology. “Well, Gen Z, you think about all the kids sitting around the table constantly on their phones, not paying attention to anything. To you, you think it's a distraction or something that's taking my mind and my presence away from the people around me. The way I see it is a door that opens me to experiences I never could have had in my natural environment. As I've grown older, I've realized that distinction of the way that my generation looks at the world.” – Hannah Grady Williams How Native Digitals Use Technology, and Why Analogs Don't Get It Hannah then talks about the time his brother mentioned what he has learned from Tik Tok. If you are a casual user, you might think that the platform is just all dance and viral memes. Yet there are people who use the platform to share important life lessons and tips they have learned themselves, in digestible, bite-size content. Sadly, most parents' reaction to someone just spending their time on social media is to just strip their phones or tablets from them. Rather than engaging with them and understanding, they just stop the activity. Because again, to them that is all just distraction. “What they don't realize, you know, if I'm looking from a Gen Xers perspective, or a Boomer's perspective, I think of technology maybe the same way as any other technological innovation that might distract you from family time at the dinner table. But the way my generation sees it is, not only are we getting access to an entirely new world of people. It's actually a portal to a new world. it's a portal, it's a new way of thinking.” – Hannah Grady Williams Millennials and Gen Z are the New Category of Humans Hannah states that Native Digitals is a great way of describing the New Age of Humans that we have now. She also thinks that it will become more pronounced once the next generation Gen Alpha, comes around. Hannah then brings up a book called Ready Player One. It is about living immersed in a digital world and treating the real world as the alternative. While the real-world economy is at a downfall, it didn't really matter to its citizens. As their life is spent in their digital selves, they saw no need to be lavish in real life. While it is an exaggerated version, it does mirror how Native Digitals prioritize their digital lives over their physical ones. You see people buying expensive digital products while in real life, they barely buy new clothes and the like. That's what Native Analogs should take note this early. Otherwise, they might be left hanging once almost everything goes fully digital.

And no, you're not crazy, or alone. Millennials and Gen Zers aren't as gritty as Gen Xers or Boomers. COVID has simultaneously increased demand for your services while shrinking the workforce you have to deliver them. If you're feeling the pinch in your hiring efforts right now, pay attention.

Do you remember which ones, if any, stood out to you?How did you interact with colleges that you were considering attending online (if at all)? Did you spend much time checking out their social media profiles?  Did you spend much time on their websites? Do you remember any particular Google searches you conducted during the process?What advice would you give to older millennials, Gen Xers, and Baby Boomers who, in many cases, hold the purse strings to marketing and student recruitment budgets about how to reach your generation?Learn more about this episode in our show notes.

Growing up, you may have been told to not talk to strangers, but it's one of the most important social components of business. Beyond business, speaking with strangers is one of the most important aspects of human interaction. My two sons (both Gen Xers) often tell me that I embarrass them by talking to strangers. They want to fade into the woodwork in line at the grocery store or at a restaurant, whereas I relish opportunities to strike up a conversation. Why do I do it? Why do I annoy them (unintentionally)? Because talking to someone you don't know can open up new horizons — horizons you could never even imagine. Let's break it down.

​Chris Clews, speaker and author, brings us the top leadership lessons from the 80s in this Hot Mess Hotline episode. Combining his marketing leadership experience and love of Gen X culture, he's written a books series, "What 80s Pop Culture Teaches Us About Today's Workplace." He travels the country sharing what we can all learn from our childhood favorites: movies that play on Saturday afternoon reruns and music originally released on vinyl. Chris originally got inspiration for this work while at home on a mental health day trying to figure out what he wanted to be when he grew up. As he revisited Gen X childhood favorites and translated them into contemporary leadership lessons, he found how much they resonated with his peers. From non-skinny jeans (thankyoujesus) to Doc Martens and Stranger Things, nostalgia for the 80s and 90s have made a full comeback in our culture. Listen in for these key insights and much more from our fun conversation. There's a danger in nostalgia and there's opportunity in looking to history for lessons to learn from Hair metal taught Gen Xers to appreciate the value of differences If you have a formula for success, you may be over using it Freedom allows for better problem solving skills Digital connection takes away our creativity The benefits of sitting next to someone while playing video games The difference between rulers and leaders Encouragement costs you nothing but can be worth everything Unearned leadership earns pleasers Why the 80s showed us how to believe in the power of nerds Problem solvers don't come in a one-size-fits-all package Don't wait your turn and don't wait for permission to lead Buzzword Bob is nothing but a buzz kill If you received value from this episode, would you share this link with others?

Growing up in the 80s and with over 20 years of experience in corporate marketing he knew 2 things very well: 80s pop culture and business. So he combined the two and created “What 80s Pop Culture Teaches Us About Today's Workplace”. He's spoken to a diverse set of organizations and companies including Visa, DHL, University of Florida, UPenn Medicine, WIFS (Women in Insurance and Financial Services), DisruptHR and more. He's a frequent guest on podcasts with topics ranging from workplace culture to 80s pop culture and he has been referenced or interviewed in numerous publications such as Entrepreneur.com and Esquire UK magazine.

Welcome to part two of our Native Digitals series here at Follow Your Different. On this episode, we have a conversation with Hannah Grady Williams on how your business can tap into the Native Digitals workforce. For those who are not familiar of what Native Digitals are, give part one of this series a quick listen (FYD 250). Hannah Grady Williams is the Gen Z CEO Advisor, sort of like a Gen Z whisperer for CEOs and executive. She is the author of a new book called A Leader's Guide to Unlocking Gen Z: Inside strategies to empower your team. If you are over the age of 35, which is a Native Analog, this is a must-listen podcast. Because Hannah has a tremendous amount of insight for how Native Analogs can bridge the gap to work, recruit, and build our companies with a whole new slew of Native Digitals workforce. Generation Differences: Gen X vs Gen Z, Native Digital vs Native Analog When asked if the generation differences also coincide with the category of Native Analogs and Native Digitals, Hannah says that there are overlaps, but they are not completely the same. These overlaps are more on how each generation treats technology. “Well, Gen Z, you think about all the kids sitting around the table constantly on their phones, not paying attention to anything. To you, you think it's a distraction or something that's taking my mind and my presence away from the people around me. The way I see it is a door that opens me to experiences I never could have had in my natural environment. As I've grown older, I've realized that distinction of the way that my generation looks at the world.” – Hannah Grady Williams How Native Digitals Use Technology, and Why Analogs Don't Get It Hannah then talks about the time his brother mentioned what he has learned from Tik Tok. If you are a casual user, you might think that the platform is just all dance and viral memes. Yet there are people who use the platform to share important life lessons and tips they have learned themselves, in digestible, bite-size content. Sadly, most parents' reaction to someone just spending their time on social media is to just strip their phones or tablets from them. Rather than engaging with them and understanding, they just stop the activity. Because again, to them that is all just distraction. “What they don't realize, you know, if I'm looking from a Gen Xers perspective, or a Boomer's perspective, I think of technology maybe the same way as any other technological innovation that might distract you from family time at the dinner table. But the way my generation sees it is, not only are we getting access to an entirely new world of people. It's actually a portal to a new world. it's a portal, it's a new way of thinking.” – Hannah Grady Williams Millennials and Gen Z are the New Category of Humans Hannah states that Native Digitals is a great way of describing the New Age of Humans that we have now. She also thinks that it will become more pronounced once the next generation Gen Alpha, comes around. Hannah then brings up a book called Ready Player One. It is about living immersed in a digital world and treating the real world as the alternative. While the real-world economy is at a downfall, it didn't really matter to its citizens. As their life is spent in their digital selves, they saw no need to be lavish in real life. While it is an exaggerated version, it does mirror how Native Digitals prioritize their digital lives over their physical ones. You see people buying expensive digital products while in real life, they barely buy new clothes and the like. That's what Native Analogs should take note this early. Otherwise, they might be left hanging once almost everything goes fully digital.

According to Jennie, Ms. Wilder does the whole town a disservice by asking the children to do family trees as a school project. This of course gives everyone another chance to remind Albert he's an orphan. Staley Novak is back as Albert's really, really mean dad, and in the end, Albert reveals more of his genius. Jennie is sweating out the toxins and Amye was brainwashed by the 700 Club--to no one's surprise.Show Notes:To sign up for our Patreon feed, download the Patreon app or visit www.patreon.com/genxthisiswhyFollow Gen X, This is Why on Facebook: facebook.com/genxthisiswhy/Join our Facebook Group, The Me-Me B's for extra content, giveaways, and some fun Gen X introspection: facebook.com/groups/genxthisiswhy/And find us on Instagram at: @genxthisiswhyYou can find Amye at: @amyearcherwriterYou can find Jennie, but good luck with that.Questions?

"Where's all my soul sistas? Lemme hear ya'll flow, sistas! Hey sista, go sista, soul sista, flow sista Hey sista, go sista, soul sista, go sista!" Why am I kicking off the new season of my podcast with lyrics from the classic "Lady Marmalade"? Because Season 3's first guest is a true soul sister: Life/performance coach Kim White, who not only has kept me focused while remaining fearless and fabulous over 40, but is also a dear friend. Call her an Influencer, Motivational Speaker, Performance Coach or The Energy Lady (what her hubby calls her!) but regardless of her many titles Kim has taught me to keep going no matter my age, because as we both firmly believe you're never too old to start! Failures don't define us and take it from her, who after 40 became a coach, fitness instructor and a mom, that is the truth! She is an expert at late blooming and as a fellow late bloomer, our connection was heaven sent! Kim has spent more than 17 years working with topics of human performance, energy management, and leadership. She has been able to leverage her degree in Health Education (Otterbein University) and a master's degree in Education Administration & Curriculum with a specialty in Professional Development (Ashland University). In addition to her teaching licensure in Special Education (The Ohio State University), Kim holds her Professional Teaching License from the State of Ohio's Department of Education in Health. Kim holds her Business Coach Certification from the World Coach Institute (WCI) and Fitness Instructor Certification from the American Exercise Council (ACE). Additionally, Kim is a Learning and Performance Consultant within Nationwide Retirement Institute (NRI), a department in Nationwide Financial, which delivers differentiated value to associates, financial advisors, leaders, and partners through programs that help them effectively grow both personally and professionally. For more information about Kim visit her online at purposewithkim.com, on Instagram at cultivate.your.purpose, and stay tuned here for upcoming episodes which will take our Not So Darlin "motley crew" of GenXers, Millennials and Boomers on a series of awesome, eye-opening journeys through summer '22!

Little House ends the season with a big ol' downer. We meet Dylan, a moody kid who sits in the woods and paints while reciting Homer and dreaming of the ocean. In other words, teenage Amye's perfect high school boyfriend. Dylan is diagnosed with leukemia and ropes Laura and Albert into accompanying him on a mission to see the Pacific before he dies. Carrie definitely played with Duplo blocks, Albert is a terrible train thief, and Pa beats the crap out of some rando.
