Can we create Generation L? We have Generation X, Generation Y, the Millennials, Baby Boomers, and more. My current obsession (besides beauty products and building a great company) is creating Generation L. I have three little kids age 2, 4, and 6 all born in the first decade of the 21st century. My job, in my opinion, is to create Little Leaders - the future of the 21st century. Between problems of the environment, Middle East destabilization, the U.S. deficit, the end of Social Security as we know it and countless other crises that will emerge (e.g. Haiti), our kids will be up against some huge challenges. They will need the skills and values to take on these challenges head-on. I don’t have the perfect recipe for this – but for me, half the battle is planning for where you want to end up.
So all I ask is that moms unite: let’s see if we can create Generation L, a generation of caring, resourceful, peace-loving, thoughtful leaders.
Two side notes:
1. If anyone has recipes for how to accomplish creating little leaders, please post!
2. I am turning 40 this year – you can see I am reflecting on other things besides the beauty business – so I apologize to those who are only looking for beauty biz stuff right now.
