As a millennial myself, I've heard that common charge of our generation being "lazy" and I think this viewpoint is worth a deeper look, as I feel millennials have had to endure as much direct and intense criticism as generations past have.

I've always had an entrepreneurial drive. I still hold vivid memories of picking pears from the large tree that grew beside the trampoline in the backyard of my childhood home.

I want every millennial to grow up to be a millionaire! The scary thing is that a million dollars won't be that much money in 40 years. The idea of a millionaire, sitting in his wood paneled living room and smoking on his pipe with hounds at his feet is long over.

Heather Magee | Posted 05.29.2015 | Canada Living
Heather Magee

I get it, Playboy is a men's lifestyle magazine, it's not the New Yorker. And I love and appreciate the female form just as much as the next guy (or girl). But the clever balance between sex and smart story-telling, art and entertainment, politics and satire has shifted.
