Post image for KAA-Boom Success Stories: Jerry Byrne, Ocean Delight Cottages

Everyone has a story, I personally find the stories of boomers most interesting because you never know what you’re going to get.  The days are gone when a person would work thirty plus years at the same menial job, reach age 65 and promptly check themselves into a senior’s residence to say goodnight. A great [...]

Everyone has a story, it’s compiled by the paths we take and the decisions we make throughout our lives.  Whether you’ve struggled your way to the top while fighting and overcoming a series of obstacles, or taken an easier more direct path to get where you are, your story is deeply rooted into every fiber [...]

Post image for X Marks the Spot: Part One

Over the past five or 10 years, millions of words have been written about the imminent departure of KAA-Boomers from the workforce and the talent crisis this will precipitate.  Yet some workplace experts are now saying there won’t be a talent crisis because there’s another enormous generation – Generation Y, the children of the KAA-Boomers [...]

Post image for When the Interviewer is Younger than Your Own Kids

If you’re a working KAA-Boomer (born between 1946 and 1964), you may have noticed that the people who are making significant business decisions are getting younger and younger.

While most older workers – especially the KAA-Boomer generation — have done an admirable job of embracing emerging technologies, replacing their VCRs for PVRs, their cell phones with the latest smartphones, and their PDAs with tablets, many have not. And that can be a problem in a workforce where the second largest generation in history [...]
