I love to getting the chance to speak with wickedly smart people and, this week, I got to talk with Erin Bury! She smart and knows her stuff! Both in the marketing world and what this strange creature called the "Millennial" is (I only say it like that because I'm old). She shares some great strategies on how to connect and retain this AWESOME group of people! Sit back and enjoy...it's a great interview!
