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!

Today I'm chatting with Alex Brooke, a former Project Manager in the nuclear industry, who decided at 44 years old to ditch her successful management career, to buy a franchise in the travel industry.
Alex is a lover of adventure holidays, roller coasters and punk music! She talks to me about why she chose to go down the franchise route rather than set up as an independent business owner.
