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.
DISCLAIMER: This site is full of rants, random thoughts, and many typos!

I fell in love with both Tina Fey and Amy Poehler back in 2004, when they delivered us Mean Girls. Then fell in love with Tina Fey all over again in her book, Bossy Pants* which I strongly recommend if you haven't read it!
Sisters* is now On Demand if you have the HBO app (woot woot!) and I HIGHLY recommend you watch this movie. Seriously, I could not stop laughing. Not gunna lie... this post is a bit of a stretch. I had to seriously think about these life lessons.
Last night my "professional self" was facilitating a workshop on financial responsibility as a millennial. We talked about everything from financing a car, repairing your credit, retirement accounts, and the dirty word... budgeting. So many of the people in the workshop felt so lost when it came to financial responsibility, that I decided there must be other confused millennials out there looking for this info too (is that a right assumption? Would you be interested in a mini course on financial responsibility? Let me know in the comments or here.)
Learning how to manage your money is one of the most important things you can do for yourself at any age, but especially in your twenties. It may be hard to imagine not living paycheck to paycheck but it's totally possible and in your reach!
You got a job offer for a position in a new city that pays more than your current position. Everything seems great, but what other costs should you consider before quitting your job and moving to a new city? - The Confused Millennial
Millennials face unique challenges in the workplace as technology advances to unite the global community, especially as Generation X approaches retirement. Issues arise with management, job satisfaction and stability. The world is shifting, and millennials are eager for upgrades. This generation will unite technology with social consciousness for both humanity and the individual. It’s not just business anymore.
The movie Daddy's Home with Mark Wahlberg and Will Ferrell is about when real dad (Mark Wahlberg) comes home to his family and their step dad (Will Ferrell). The plot is pretty predictable so I'm not worried about revealing any spoilers here and more so focus on some nice reminders and 6 life lessons from this super funny movie!
Recently I was talking with a former co-worker of mine, when she said "How did you go to yoga in the middle of the workday and come back looking so flawless? I couldn't do it!"
The truth is I workout in some way (walking, barre, yoga, spinning, whatever), every day and only wash my hair every 1-2 weeks (depending on the time of year).
*Also noteworthy: I HATE doing my hair, and don't own a blow-dryer. I get two hair cuts a year and generally dislike taking care of my appearance.
Between 2000 and 2013, the percentage of 23- to 34-year-olds living with family jumped a whopping 46 percent. Currently, 21 percent of millennials opt to live at home with parents, while a large portion of the generation splits rent with multiple roommates or cohabitates with a significant other. Despite the rising costs of renting, almost 9 percent of U.S. millennials live solo. Mid-size cities are significantly more palatable to a millennial budget, including Richmond, where 15 percent of millennials live alone. But is it possible to live alone in a big city on a young person’s salary?
How are you supposed to know when it’s time to make a career change? Maybe what you thought was going to be ground-breaking work in college didn’t quite turn out how you thought it would. Or maybe you were unsure all along and were forced to make a decision but now you’re ready to make a better choice for yourself. Whatever your reasons, changing your career path in your 20s is definitely doable!
