Editorial Reviews

Laurence Washington Business Journal
Author Misti Burmeister, by her own account, bolted out of college with her career guns blazing, jumping into her first job intent on making an impact. She met the stiff arm of resistance from an entrenched baby boomer, frequently referred to as a "seasoned professional" in the book.

Burmeister did not last long there. So she spent several months doing informational interviews with employers. Those experiences helped her conclude that miscues between generations are killing productivity and careers.

Like most smart chief executive officers, she found a need in the marketplace and started a company, consulting business Inspirion Inc., to boost productivity through improved communication across generations.

Boomers to Bloggers offers tips to help boomers, Xers and Yers get what they want from their careers while helping their employers and peers achieve their goals.
