Why Cross-Generational Friendships Make You Better – 060

Can you learn something from those who are younger than you? Should you listen to those “older and wiser?” Yes and yes! We began this show because co-hosts, Darlene and Julie, come from two generations and we believed their different life seasons could intersect and bring a unique perspective for your #gritandgracelife! In this episode, we consider how having cross-generational friendships with women and men can make you better in all arenas: home life, work life, parenting, and passion-pursuing. We explore the strengths of millennials to boomers and everything in-between. We will glean so much grit and grace when we put our pre-existing attitudes aside and listen to one another; we will learn things we probably couldn’t otherwise. Listen and share this show with an older and a younger friend you already know or maybe one you would like to know!

Combining the two traits found in all women, grit and grace, they laugh, share insights and explore the road taken to find strength every day.
