I'm Rachel, millennial career and business coach, and also the founder of The Confused Millennial (TCM).
Why did I decide to start TCM? Because I have no idea what I am doing and decided to just say f*ck it. Let's get real.
I want #TCMillennial to be a community for other confused millennials to share, connect, learn, and grow. So I highly encourage you to reach out, ask me anything, and request a post.
After looking up to so many "experts" in the space, and then finally getting to interact with them, I realized my suspicions were right, and it was all bullshit and they were figuring it out as they went too, and wished someone had let me in on it, so I decided to create this blog. The no bullshit resource for other confused millennials. Like it, share it, hate it, whatever, it's my truth and maybe yours too.

On the blog...
Ever since Tinder and Bumble launched, I’ve been in a relationship… so while I understand the concept of these apps, they’ve always been a bit foreign and out of reach for me. Then I saw that Bumble released its BFF feature!
I was super stoked about this for a few reasons:
Being The Confused Millennial, I often get the question what are you confused about? What are millennials confused about? Are we an indecisive lost generation? Or feeling the pressure of trying to be better than past generations?
There is so much to see in San Francisco between Alcatraz, Fisherman's Wharf, the Fine Arts Palace, Land's End, Golden Gate Park, and so much more! Trying to see it all while on vacation requires a game plan. So I want to write this post to help you strategize (as best I can) your visit and get the most out of your stay in San Francisco.
When I first began my entrepreneurial journey things we slow. I became obsessed with researching apps and odd ways to save money. I did everything from taking surveys for 25 cents to watching commercials for a penny! I probably tried out a million apps around that time as well. Below is a list of 10 popular money saving apps that I have tried over the years and my verdict on them:
How do you know when it's time to take a step back from something in your life? It can be one of the most difficult things to recognize our shortcomings and make a change for our own self care and sanity. Here are 5 signs that I needed to take a step back and focus on myself
Pretty much immediately after I wrote last weeks post, "3 Painstaking Truths in Life & How to Overcome Them", where I touch on some of the most common advice we get and how it can often lead to perfection paralysis, I was hit with a full blown case of writers block.
I've been trying to have my posts planned out at least one week in advance... But here I sit Monday morning at 7:45 am writing this trying to get it up today (gotta stick to that schedule!).
This movie is so millennial, I literally can't even... and if you haven't checked it out on Netflix yet, I recommend you do ASAP.
Amy, played by Emma Roberts, is our 22 year old protagonist. It should be noted, if you are not okay with dark humor and politically IN-correct jokes, do not watch this movie... for example, it starts with Amy mimicking Sylvia Plath's suicide by placing her head in the oven, only to stop herself a few moments later as she realizes she's committing "suicidal plagiarism".
Ever since I was a little girl, I’ve been obsessed with television. I even convinced my neighbors that I had a brother named “Robbie” (like the brother in the 90s classic “Dinosaurs"), who was away in the military, and that they shouldn’t bring him up to my mom because it made her sad. I also used to blame everything on Belle (from Beauty and the Beast).
Does the idea of Netflix, yoga pants/basketball shorts, and delivery sound all too familiar and awesome at the same time for date night? If anyone knows how to keep things interesting, while also staying on budget, it’s us. Keeping your relationship sparkly when you’re broke might take a little more effort but there are plenty of creative ways to make it happen and make it fun.
