30. Millennial Misunderstandings w/ Mallie Rydzik

In this episode Cem and Wayne interview Millennial Coach Mallie Toth Rydzik. Mallie is on a mission to show the world that there’s an alternative to giving up five days of your life to your cubicle job and why you shouldn’t let your career define you. We discuss whether being a Millennial is more of a mindset than an age range, the many ways in which technology is empowering the individual and why our constant connectivity is leading us towards greater consciousness and creativity.
