One thought on “August 9th Playbook”

  1. Catherine Baker says:

    “Millennials may have grown up online, but they don’t know everything” – Ms. Bluesman, there is room for all of us. Author seems hung up (or obsessed) on the superficial challenges of growing older as she has written in other venues. Rather than focus on what she can contribute to the conference, she snipes. Chip on her shoulder? I’d say so!
