Today we face a unique dichotomy between the wisdom of the Baby Boomer generation and the passion of Generation Y. According to Wisdom Meets Passion, the question is not which is right, but rather how can the two work together? Wisdom, meet passion. Passion, wisdom. By bringing these two voices to the issue, this book takes readers through familiar plights, such as understanding the American Dream, the quest for security, and work that matters—regardless of age. Through candid storytelling, Dan Miller and Jared Angaza uncover various generational approaches to work, money, success, and relationships, proving that it is possible to be both passionate and wise.
We've put together some killer packages that aren't just for you to read the book and open your head to the possibilities, but for you to share it with others - the true message of Wisdom Meets Passion.

ABOUT THE BOOK
Baby boomers have relied primarily on wisdom to pave their way to success. Education, knowledge, investment strategies, 401ks and carefully contrived career paths were expected to lead to success in one’s golden years.Seeing the overall failure of that formulaic approach to life, younger generations today have relied on passion as the guiding principle for their version of success.The concept of “success” has transformed from a focus on financial gain to a focus on living a more extraordinary life, one that benefits humanity. We want to make the world a better, more peaceful place. We want to be “changemakers” and “social entrepreneurs." Security and stability are a lot less compelling than before. There’s more out there and we know it.In short, we must foster wisdom, passion and collaboration if we truly want to live an extraordinary life and make a positive impact. In Wisdom Meets Passion you’ll find some of these principles:
How can I “make a difference” in the world today?
Where do I find security?
Is a college degree necessary for success today?
How do I find – or create – work that matters?
Can I be a social entrepreneur and do good while doing well?
Why am I here?
What if I’m ready for retirement and still haven’t lived my dream – is it too late?
Our goal is to get this book and medallion into your hands. We want you be able to inspire those in your center of influence – children, spouses, co-workers and those you meet on the street.
ABOUT THE MEDALLION
The medallion was designed as a collaboration between Jared Angaza and Hannah Woodard at KEZA, an ethical fashion label owned by Jared that operates in East Africa. You can visit the KEZA website at www.keza.com for more information.
The necklace itself is made from a durable, black nylon cord, randomly knotted and looped around itself, as a representation of humanity. The cord loops through the center of the Ubuntu Medallion, representing the core of our ethos as a united society.The necklace was assembled by Nepali refugees through Hope Rise, a Nashville, TN based charity assisting refugees integrating into Nashville. Every medallion sold affords them more income, dignity and options.You can wear it on your neck, carry it in your pocket, pay it forward or hang it from your rearview mirror. Go wild with it

The message presented in this book leaves the door open to two dangerous outcomes. Continue a life of mediocrity or risk new possibilities. Either way, it’s a risk. Which will you choose?

“Anyone who suggests living your complex life according to one slick and simple slogan is misleading you. By contrast, this immensely readable volume rooted in reality, tells the truth. Dan and Jared brilliantly weave the explanation behind the compelling equation that sculpts your life. All You’ve Learned from Your Past + Your Dreams, Passions, and Plans for Your Future = How You Can Succeed Today.”
