If you are anything like me, (and you probably are because I read like one article on the success rate of New Year's resolutions and it was very dismal, like don't even bother reading the research because I think we all know in our hearts what it says and it's just going to make you feel worse) then join me in participating in these "Easily Attainable and totally realistic New Year's resolutions for People who already fucked up but still want something to brag about on Social Media!"
A BNP Paribas global study finds that Millennials are starting more businesses, with higher headcount and targeting higher profits than Baby Boomers . In Canada, the allure of being your own boss is also strong with young adults: A study by Intuit shows that one quarter of Millennial-age entrepreneurs have never held a full-time job prior to starting out on their own -- nearly three times more than entrepreneurs ages 35-54.
These are people that believe so strongly in the potential of their city and are doing all they can for the world to understand one thing: "You don't need to leave Hamilton to enjoy the fruits of a growing exciting world.

Is it because our attention spans are too short to focus on the complexities of the world around us? Are we too easily bored?
The expectation is that social people will be the ones with zero savings, loads of debt on BMWs and flashy condos that are rented. None of that has to be true! Buying trendy lofts in the "up and coming" areas of the city, budgeting for partying, automating RRSP contributions, and using your ah-mazing charm and whit can get you ahead in a lucrative career. Popular people can be financially savvy too!
