  1. Deborah, you hit the nail on the head with this article. It is very crucial for all of us to understand and know how to communicate with all generations across the board – especially Gen Z because as we try to grow our businesses – no matter what those businesses are – we are definitely going to need to know what appeals to Gen Z. They are our future and knowing the characteristics as you have explained is very important moving forward.

    I have two children – my son is a Millennial and my daughter is a Gen Z. They are both very different in their approaches to life, technology and music. and mostly in how they communicate (with each other and others). While they were extremely different when they were younger, as they are getting older, the gap is narrowing a bit due to their trains of thought.

    Thank you for this enlightening information. I look forward to reading more from you. Will you continue to write more articles about the generations and how our businesses are affected in the future?

    Keep up the great work.

    Kind Regards,

    • Hi,
      I do believe that catching up with the Generations does help us to signify current trends. Like the Boomers for example. The Millennial era was truly short lived. Then taken over by the Generation Z. Totally very similar but depending on our work and which audience we target means keeping up with the current trends. Generation Z is the newest trend.
      I am waiting to see what comes up next.
      Thank you Yvette,
      Kindest Regards Debs 🙂
