Basically, a new version of “Chicken Soup for the Soul” for millennial generation. We grew up reading series of this book. Yet, felt it did not speak to the new generation and believe there has to be a version of this series but modernized enough to relate to the new generations.

Soothing Tea vs. Chicken Soup

This version offers titles that are unique to the millennial generation. They bring up issues that have raised only by modern days. That only millennials can relate to, based on how they were raised. This generation is more sensitive to certain treatment, more demanding than others would and also feel a much higher sense of entitlement to opportunities.

These topics can be left out of the equation for most, and may feel lost. The new millennials often feel they are alone in their challenges. When in fact we are all experiencing them but in our own secluded rooms. Let’s break the walls and feel at ease by being comforted with stories of how others lived and survived what we might be confronting in the present time.
