In the constantly evolving and socially driven society we live in today, the very definition of a workplace has changed. Coworking has become a global movement where work is done outside the confines of a traditional workspace and is instead in a shared working environment either in an office or other public space.

When you're falling asleep isn't it always the thought of credit card debt that comes to mind? The best way to deal with that anxiety is with a plan. A plan to stop the bleeding money, set spending thresholds and eliminate that debt!

Before Amy Schumer re-defined "Train Wreck" (the title of her upcoming already-acclaimed-movie), the rest of us took the term into our own hands by channelling our favourite pieces of pop culture -- and applying them to our club and/or bar ensembles.
Happy halfway through the year! How has your year been going financially? Did you get the promotion you were hoping for? Have you been paying down your debt and getting on top of your money? If the answer is no, that's OK, because we still have six more months to go until next year!
For a generation that values experiences above results and marketing claims, brands need to continue to implement a marketing strategy that embodies FOMO factors and the experience their products can provide. By doing so, millennials will continue to purchase the very products brands are selling.
Naturally as I approached 30 I reflected on my career thus far, and the path that led me here. Here are the things I've learned over eight years of building a career -- hopefully some of them resonate and help you as you're building you own.
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 remember packing them into plastic grocery bags (we weren't all that environmentally conscious back then) and loading them into my little red wagon.
Social media is an incredibly powerful tool that today is available to everyone. And like any tool, there is a right and wrong way of using it. While recruiters are not necessarily interested in millennials' selfies or meals, hiring managers are certainly looking to their profiles, timelines and boards to vet candidates and learn more about them.

When it comes to planning for retirement, you should be focusing on one crucial piece of advice: the earlier you start saving, the better. "The longer you save for retirement, the more money you build," says financial security advisor Kirk Bowden in an interview. "Even if it's something small."

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. Millionaires will be "thousandaires" by today's standards as everything gets more and more expensive.

The debate surrounding whether to seek higher education post-bachelor's versus gaining workplace experience is common amongst millennials. Whatever direction you choose, becoming confident in your decision is a key part of the journey.

This year marks the 42nd Canadian federal election. In the current political context, it is generally understood that information is power. However, this data is only made powerful when it can be properly cultivated, analyzed and shared with people who can take that information and make it actionable. This reality is important for decision-makers running the country, for political parties, as well as for our youth voters, among others.

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. Like a viral celebrity sex tape or a generation desensitized by the internet, the thrill is gone.

Vacationing, for me, is about the destination. It's a place you go, where you can put your feet up for a few days or weeks. Travelling, on the other hand, is about the journey. It often means setting off without a plan and the ability to enjoy the unexpected - like going three weeks without washing your clothes. When you decide to travel, you pack up your life and take it on the road with you.

Rather than free us from the drudgery of work, technology has made us slaves to our phones and laptops. It has taken the entry of the most technologically savvy generation in history to realize that fact and, hopefully, to change it.

An absence of multigenerational interaction may seem like a blessing to some, but it has those in city planning concerned. Just as our neighbourhoods have traditionally been segregated by race, ethnicity, income and culture, today they're also increasingly split by age.

Despite being a tech-savvy Gen Y'er who lives online, sometimes I read an article that makes me feel like I'm being relegated to some "too old to be hip" corner of the internet where only Clint Eastwood and baby boomers hang out. The most glaring instance was an October article in Quartz about the rise of social payments app.

Patio season took a toll on you, girl. Kudos on your sangria tolerance though, that took work! Let's take a little baby break, clear the system, save some dollars, walk home wearing shoes, etc. Plus, this gives you a very dramatic and lovely opportunity to ,at the stroke of midnight on Halloween, transform back into that famous little Drunkerella we all love so much!

It's exhausting, this constant pressure that exists in the "real world." We're making decisions today that outline the rest of our lives. The choices we make now help us discover who we are, what we want in life, where we live and what people we want to spend our time with. How do you know which path is best? The truth is, you don't.

Vinyl record sales are up a staggering amount in recent years. Sales have increased year-over-year since 2008 and show no real signs of letting up. Whether or not you buy into its staying power, vinyl offers a very different experience than buying digital.

A recent study shows that a culture of collaboration is one of the top things millennials are looking for in an employer. Building this type of culture not only makes business 'cents' through increased productivity and creativity, but it also creates a more engaged workforce, increasing morale and helping attract and retain top talent.
