   uestion: Ever wonder what makes one generation different from another?
Try this with your family:
Ask, “When I say “NASA”, what comes to your mind?” For Boomers it’s probably Neil Armstrong stepping on the moon in 1969. To Gen Xers, it might be Viking 1 touching down on Mars. Millennials may think of the Hubble Telescope. Each generation is loosely defined by thoughts and attitudes created through shared life experiences, usually the ones from our teens.
So what have we learned about Millennials? Born between 1982 and 2004, they are conservative in nature and the least trusting generation. They remember the 9/11 attacks and the economic downturns. 75% consider wealth a very important attribute - good, considering they stand to inherit over $30 Trillion before 2044.* But here’s a concern. How they will handle it. So I ask, is this a discussion your family is having? To me, financial legacy and literacy go hand in hand. We need to open the lines of communication and prepare our families.
A few years ago, I had an idea of how I could impact the Millennial Generation. I began inviting groups of teens to a 3-month series on life planning and Financial Fitness. The classes were interactive. I took them through an imaginary family of 4. We looked at income, expenses, and savings goals. We addressed protection needs. They envisioned themselves as adults, with responsibilities. They were asked how they would feel if
they couldn’t meet their goals. This was an eye opener! They learned about the power and importance of saving early.
Often, I hear complaints about what the youth don’t know, so I decided I it’s up to us to teach them. Through education we build trust and prepare them for their future. Remember, a Millennial will be running the White House one day - so start engaging your family today!
