What is a Baby Boomer?
Born during the demographic Post-World War II baby boom, 1945 to 1965, Baby Boomers redefined traditional values. They are widely associated with privilege because most grew up in a time of affluence. As a group, they were amongst the first to grow up genuinely expecting the world to improve with time. By the sheer force of its numbers, the boomers are an anomaly, a demographic bulge which has remodeled every aspect of society, including business ownership. -Wikipedia
