The forgotten middle child or the sandwich generation, previously known as “the slackers” or being the “problematic” generation because they never really tried very hard and are very independent. They were the first generation of “latchkey kids” with dual-income families and an increased divorce rate of their parents. Gen X is the smallest generation born between the years 1965-1979. They are juggling raising their kids, paying mortgages and tuition,...
Boomers were born between the years of 1946-1964 and grew up with the “American Dream” in the white-picket-fence era of post-World War II. They are the second-largest generation behind Millennials.

In December 2017, the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) voted to repeal Net Neutrality. This puts businesses like yours at risk for being harder to find—and it’s already hard! It puts consumers at risk because they will have a harder time finding the information and products...
Thank you again for your support as I continue with this journey!
