[01:53] – Monique introduces her guest, Jacqueline Cripps


[02:30] – Tell everyone a little bit about you.

  • I’m currently living in London, Australian born.
  • Over the last couple of years have been building my own business here in London.
  • What I’m passionate about doing is helping empower organizations and Millennials.


[07:01] – Monique and Jacqueline talk about different kinds of generations:

  • Generation X: Born 1965-1980 (38-53 years old)
  • Generation Y: Born 1981-1996 (22-37 years old)
  • Generation Z: Born 1997-Present (0-21 years old)
  • Baby Boomers: Born 1946-1964 (54-72 years old)


[09:28] – What do you think are the characteristics that make millennials so different from the generations before?

  • We’re growing up in a world where we’re influenced by technology.
  • We are shaped by instant gratification in terms of meeting everything done now. 


[24:46] – How can we take this into corporations and businesses as a millennial?

  • I think Millennials are definitely much more attracted to working for organizations that are making a difference already.


[27:22] – Was there any kind of situation where you really kind of run against the wall?

  • I was experiencing what I want to call the intergenerational conflict in the workplace. 


[34:52] – How did you get into the burnout and how did it feel for you?

  • I became really rundown, constant sickness, I had no social life.


[38:30] – What did you do to admit and acknowledge this mindset shift out of like “I literally have to stop being on this GO GO GO mentality”?

  • I guess from a step by step point of view:
  • What is actually a priority and why is it a priority?
  • Why am I doing what I’m doing?
  • If it’s not for you, then don’t do it.


[48:29] – How do you define efficiency?

  • Efficiency is just doing the best that I can do in what I do and getting things done that I want to do.


[48:46] – Which would be the top three things that you would always repeat?

  • I think going back to what I was saying before:
  • Time management.
  • Realistic expectations.
  • Learning how to manifest what you want and work with energy.

    Most of the time we spend is in our head and we should make it a nice place, like a garden and plant flowers.

    We are growing up in a world where open-mindedness is not just a thing, it is just who we are.
