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.

Rumor is, that if you are using more than seven hashtags per photo, Instagram decreases your organic reach and impressions on that photo to decrease spammy behavior and not let Instagram become the next Twitter (they even added a nice new feature in the "Activity" (the heart) tab, where you can see "People" now, making it a little easier to see who followed you, and in turn, if someone who just followed you unfollowed you a few hours later... but that's not the point of this post). Here is what happened to engagement, impressions, reach, and followers when I tried to use seven hashtags per photo.
What do I mean when I say that everything the coaches I looked up to say/do is bullshit?
I mean it's all sales tactics. They are not really "secure" or "philanthropic"; they don't really know what they are doing... and most of their work is just a quick Google search away which terrifies them.
Seriously... let me break this down for you:
Fall is always such a magical time of year IMO. It always feels like magic is in the air as the holidays are about to kick off and the humidity finally starts to die down a little in Florida! Today I am sharing my favorite fall inspired date night ideas (which totally work for friend date nights too!) that you can do on any budget!
When should I incorporate? How are corporations taxed? How does this compare to running my business as a sole proprietor? I’m only a freelancer. Should I still incorporate? Your most common incorporation questions answered - the Confused millennial
College is a special time of great change and learning. Not only do we learn in the classroom, but we learn about ourselves and others. We learn about our capabilities and potential. We overcome immeasurable fatigue and sleep-depravation. Right now, many of us are more driven to do something great with our lives when we graduate than any other time in our lives so far. 5 Life Lessons From College So Far:
A Millennial is anyone born between 1982-1999. Millennials are also known as Generation Y (click here to read the full history of how the term was coined and by who).

I am just going to come out and say this... I can be difficult.
It's true, most people describe me as "tough", but when I am f*cking with their agenda, I'm difficult.
In 7th grade this label really became a part of me...
In today’s world, where many industries are still very male-dominated, being able to “make it” as a woman means having to learn how to successfully navigate disproportionately male workplaces, such as investment banking to today’s top money making STEM professions, the ratio of women in the workplace, and those rising to the “top” is less than ideal. In fields such a higher education as well, where people often assume gender-neutrality and equality, women only hold 31 percent of full professors at postsecondary institutions. In fact, the higher one goes in the educational system, the fewer women are present. Check out these five tips for succeeding in a male dominated workplace.

Sometimes things just "click" in your twenties...
I remember the first time I met my fiancé... It was an October night in Florida, I was 22 years old, and had just finished my waitressing shift, changed in the bathroom, and headed over to a friends pool party.
