    Do Millennials count in elections?

    in Politics

    J. Neil Schulman's new movie, "Alongside Night" is about elections being irrelevant. Fiction or prophecy? And Millennials are a key demographic vote needed in elections, but 77% of them may sit out the November election. Tune in to hear this important discussion.


    Have you had your healthy dose of reality lately?

    There are always at least two sides to every story. Have you ever wondered how someone, who saw the same thing you did, walked away telling a vastly different story? Which version was correct? Which one was the REAL story? Actually, both are! It’s just a matter of perspective.

    Joe takes the issues… especially the controversial issues (politics, prejudice, religion, illegal immigration)… and brings in people from different sides to share their viewpoint. This is definitely not a fluff piece. And while no one is attacked, the questions are hard-hitting.

    But the conversation is always respectful and you’re sure to learn something new, even if you don’t agree!

    If you’ve always wondered how the “other side” thinks and how they’ve arrived at their “stand”, then this is the show for you! 


    It’s not the right side, it’s not the wrong side, but the REAL side of the issues!

    IT Life Radio: Working with Millennials

    in Technology

    Welcome to the inaugural episode of IT Life Radio. IT Life is dedicated to all things that matter to IT professionals including career advice, management issues, gaming, new technology and "geek lifestyle." Every Wednesday at 3PM ET we'll have a special guest to talk about one of these topics.


    If you believe the hype, millennials are whiny, entitled, social media addicts that can't make a decision without including a group of a thousand. And when they do, they expect a participation trophy for doing it. They are also 53 percent of the workforce so like it or not, you're going to have to deal with them.


    Bill Grady, IBM Brand Strategist, says you should like it. According to IBM's study, "Myths, Exaggerations, and Uncomfortable Truths" Millennials aren't all that different from the rest of us. The study goes into the habits and beliefs of all the generations in the workplace and we're more alike than we sometimes like to admit.


    Grady will help us:



    Sort fact from fiction about Millennials in the workplace.
    How to integrate them into your workplace
    How to be a better manager (or co-worker) regardless of generation.


    Bill Grady is Brand Strategist, IBM Corporate Headquarters. Bill is an award-winning designer and inventor with nine US patents issued and pending. He is currently focused on establishing IBM Watson as an essential worldwide brand. Bill lives in New York City, where he is an MBA candidate in the class of 2016 at NYU.

    Motivating Millennials

    in Business

    As a group, Millennials are poised on the brink of greatness. With their parent's generation giving way to their own, many are finding themselves facing challenges that previous generations never encountered. No matter how great the challenges (student loan debt, job shortages, etc...) they also possess a resourcefulness and creativity that is a force to be reckoned with, and despite the odds many are rising to incredible heights!  Can you imagine what the landscape of Social Media would look like if an 18-year-old Mark Zuckerberg had feared the global economy, or been afraid to drop out of school to pursue his dreams? What sets these amazing young men and women apart from their peers and allows them to fearlessly pursue their goals? Join me as I discuss motivating Millennials to find their Championship Psychology and reach for the stars with Justin Lafazan.


    At age 18, Justin is the founder of Students4Students College Advisory, and Millennial Marketing Strategy, educational and marketing consulting firms that leverage youth perspective to provide value to customers, families, and businesses.
