Boomers and Millennials in Sync – Coffee Break

What if baby boomers and millennials are more alike than we think? It’s popular and sometimes fun to jibe each other about generational differences but beyond the surface annoyances, maybe we’re the same.

In this Coffee Break, we tackle the similarities, which is pretty fun because – LeAura is a Baby Boomer and Devani is a Millennial. So all parties are represented. 🙂

Boomers did not grow up with the same technologies that Millennials have. Yet, they absolutely had a similar mindset of rebelling authority and starting to question the status quo. The energy of progressing forward, innovating, and breaking the glass ceiling of their time is actually still very apparent in many Boomers today.

When it comes to the frustrations that boomers may have with their millennials kids/young adults, remember – just because life seems easier, they are breaking the traditions earlier, it doesn’t mean they don’t struggle. We all struggle, we all have personal life initiations and it will look different depending on the person, era, and internal fight each of us have to break free from.

Topics Covered: 

  • Crossroads in generations and age
  • Non-conformity
  • Breaking free from old thought patterns
  • How to identify your passions
  • How two generations can help each other
  • Building skill sets
  • Family and teamwork
  • Generations mentoring each other
  • Imposter syndrome, insecurities, and internal struggles


“Many boomers are looking for what their next act in life is going to be about. It’s like the horizon is wide open.”

“Just because that was your version of hard, doesn’t mean my version of hard isn’t equally as character building.”

~ Devani Alderson 

“Make a list of your passions, and a list of your strengths, and see where there might be over lap. There may be a clue as to what you pursue next.”

~LeAura Alderson 

“Allow yourself to be pulled by passions, but also by skills sets you’re interested in.”

~Devani Alderson 

“Develop skills around your interest and those will begin to show you a way.”

~LeAura Alderson

“This technology is here to stay and here to continue increasing exponentially. And that is your gateway to the world.”
