Episode Description

Founder and former rue21 CEO, Bob Fisch works towards creating a new level of understanding between Millennials and Baby Boomers that is built on a spirit of respect and mutual mentoring. Bob wrote "Fisch Tales: The Making of a Millennial Baby Boomer" to bring those two distinct demographic groups together to illustrate how they can learn valuable lessons from each other simply by listening more closely and sharing more freely. Bob is quoted as saying “I believe that which year you were born or which generation you belong to doesn’t matter. What matters to me is who you are, what you do, and how young you allow yourself to be.”
