Hi, Everybody! I want you to meet Erin Landers. For the last year she’s been working with me at Dana Perino and Company. She’s a delight. Peter, my husband, says she reminds him of me when he first met me. I asked, “When I was nice?”
Erin is 28 years old, relentlessly positive, and very good at everything I ask her to do. When I told her I felt out of the millennial loop, she came up with a weekly email she calls Selfie Friday. In it she alerts me to new words the young folks are using, plus their worries, their strengths and their challenges. It has made me feel more informed and understanding…and not as old as I otherwise might. We joke that I’m the only Gen X-er who likes millennials!
I get a kick out of this weekly email and thought you would, too. So we will post these every week. Send us your feedback, suggestions and questions. Together we can make each other hip again!
