Stuck somewhere between the affluent Baby Boomers and the high maintenance Millennials is a somewhat 'forgotten' generation. The Generation X!
Those of us born between 1964/5 and 1984/5 make up the Generation Xers.
We're stressed, we're sandwiched between looking after aging Boomers and supporting our stay-at-home-for-as-long-as-possible Millennials BUT we are coming into our own and doing some exceptional things.
Join me as I explore and celebrate the women of this UNFORGOTTEN GENERATION!
