Trying to sum up what it means to be a millennial is no easy task. Heck, that’s what we’ve been attempting with this blog all along. But if you only had a few pages to write, what would you say?
We would say something along the lines that millennials are actually really good people who care about important things like family and creativity. We’d also say, contrary to popular belief, that we aren’t a narcissistic generation, but rather a generation who wants to make a positive difference in the world.
But we are still realistic: there are things millennials can work on.
Such as living life with conviction. Or dreaming of a better world for future generations.
Well, we had only a few pages — we said these things and (after a couple weeks of writing, editing, and formatting) ended up with our first ever ebook — A Millennial Manifesto!
About the manifesto
A Millennial Manifesto is a short ebook that gets to the heart about living a millennial life. It draws upon four ordinary but very important verbs we tend to ignore — live, create, persevere, and dream.
We intend this ebook to not only stand for what we believe here at A Millennial Type, but for it to resonate with all millennials.
Intentionally, we made the ebook short and sweet, so you can easily absorb it within one sitting!
How to get a copy
The ebook is free to download which means you can be thumbing through it in less than a minute!

I read the manifesto, now what?
If you’ve already finished reading A Millennial Manifesto, we sincerely want to say thank you. What we originally intended to be a small side project ended up becoming a part time job — but we loved every minute of creating it! Needless to say, we are honored that you read it.
