Survey of Interest: What Do You Think of Different Generations?

A recent survey by Harris Interactive conducted for Charles Schwab and Age Wave asked almost 4,000 Americans aged 21 to 83 what they thought of different generations.

Specifically, they were asked about people aged 13 to 31 or Generation Y; those aged 32 to 43 or Generation X, Baby Boomers, aged 44 to 62; the "Silent Generation," aged 63 to 83; and the "Greatest Generation," aged 84 or older.

The results show how very differently people view the different generations, with many people holding strong positive and negative opinions about them.

Here's a look at Table 1:Fascinating results. See whether you agree or disagree. Find out more here. And, as always, weigh in with your two cents. We're ready!

Event: WBDC Chicago Annual Conference

We had the wonderful opportunity to exhibit at the Women's Business Development Center Chicago 22nd Annual Entrepreneurial Woman's Conference where the Women Presidents' Organization has been a longstanding partner for many years.

Several WPO Chicago members attended, networked, shared ideas, brainstormed, served as workshop experts and had some good old-fashioned fun.
