The young millennial is shaking things up. He often writes articles to support young entrepreneurs in their journey to success. He says as a millennial you often have to prove your value to the older generation of professionals because they tend to not take them seriously and brush over their accomplishments. They often lack the confidence they need to make an impact. They also have to work much harder to prove their worth in the work field. Millennials are an asset undiscovered though. Their energy, enthusiasm, and vast knowledge of technology is what sets them apart. Technology is only growing and will take over the world at some point. Millennials grew up with technology and know the ins and outs of it. Howitt encourages young entrepreneurs to stand strong and continue on their path to success.
