Inductively Speaking Blog
This blog will feature posts on Generational Trends, Marketing, Social Media, and Society. If you have thoughts to share, please consider contacting me to write a guest post.
Even the best inductive methods applied to all available evidence may get it wrong; good inductions may lead from true premises to false conclusions. (A competent but erroneous diagnosis of a rare disease, a sound but false forecast of summer sunshine in the desert.) An appreciation of this principle is a signal feature of the shift from the traditional to the contemporary problem of induction. – Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy
The NonGrad Blog
People don’t publish magazines or blogs that cater to people who went to college but didn’t graduate. Advertisers aren’t interested in that demographic and publishers don’t want to sell to that demographic.
This is an example of the sort of reasoning that compels me to continue my mission of providing support for people who either never went to college or started but did not complete their degree. Many are wont to classify this group as dropouts without first understanding their story. Yes, some people just got up and left college and have no interest in contributing to society. Many many more had to leave for financial, medical, or family related reasons.
What Is #GenYChat About?
Identifying a need in social media to eliminate perceived barriers in the intergenerational workplace, I initiated an ongoing, virtual conversation among generations. I’m proud to say that conversation, #GenYChat, has turned into a popular chat – and brand – on Twitter, with hundreds of tweets each week.
#GenYChat is a concept-based chat that discusses ideas for improving communication between Generation Z, Millennials, Generation Y, Generation X and Baby Boomers. Mainstream media is continuing to place each generation into boxes in an effort to classify us. There are always outliers, though. The more these generalizations are spread, the more critical the need grows to dispel these myths.
Inductively speaking, the conclusion that all members of Generation Y are lazy does not follow from the premise simply because all the ones you’ve seen are.

I write for those in the “some college but no degree” demographic because I am living this experience. I am not endorsing abandonment of higher education. I do support the idea of obtaining knowledge in an environment of your peers. Higher education is a question of return on investment.
The content provided by both The NonGrad and Inductively Speaking challenges the notion that one must have a college degree to compete in higher echelons of intellectual ability.
I started by writing advice pieces. I wanted to help people who were in this situation. I realized, though, that I’m on this road with everyone else – we’re all just at different points. So, like Forrest Gump who ran because he felt compelled to run, I’m writing because I feel a compulsion to do so. If the words here help you, great! If not, neither of us were harmed in the process.
