Fact or fiction: There are generational differences between Boomer, Gen X, and Gen Y entrepreneurs. What do you think? More importantly, how do these differences impact how you do business?

Donna FennEnter today’s guest, Donna Fenn. An accomplished journalist and author, Donna studies those (I’m one of them) text messaging, ADD, shiny red ball, fast talking, impatient Gen Y’ers and has compiled her thoughts into her great book, Upstarts: How GenY Entrepreneurs Are Rocking the World of Business and 8 Ways You Can Profit From Their Success (affiliate).

In this interview, Donna and I talk about generational differences between entrepreneurs and some of her favorite examples and takeaways.

Join In On The Discussion:

What are your thoughts on generational differences between entrepreneurs? Are Gen Y spoiled little brats or will they (we) end up being one of the top entrepreneurial generations of all time?
