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.
“The wisdom of the past can blend with the passion of the current generation in accomplishments that are socially significant, humanitarian, noble, and purposeful and yet still personally and economically responsible.”

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?
