In this episode, I’m tackling what it means to be entitled. It’s a word commonly used to describe millennials, and it makes me cringe. Here’s the thing though, maybe it’s not an entirely inaccurate description.
Take a step back and think if you’ve ever done something in an effort to curb your budget that you might not be proud to repeat to your parents or your boss. What sketchy things have you done in your twenties to save money? That’s what I’ve asked my friends in the first episode of The Baxter Brief.
I did put some basic parameters around this question, including no five-fingered discount stories and no harming others. Basically, when I asked other millennials this question, we took a moment to wonder if our actions could generally be considered “OK.”
