In this episode, Mitchell Levy, Chief Instigator of Ahas at the Aha Amplifier (http://AhaAmplifier.com), and his co-host for the month, Jacob Warwick, copywriter and brand storyteller, along with guests Han-Gwon Lung, Tailored Ink CEO and co-founder, and Dan Foley, Tailored Ink co-founder and Chief Strategy Officer have a discussion on millennial authenticity and what it means for thought leadership. The hosts and guests expressed their viewpoints about authenticity in the millennial generation. Han-Gwon Lung defined authenticity as “more than just being yourself.”
The discussion touched on Internet’s paradoxical role in millennial authenticity, authenticity’s relationship with empathy and narcissism, and how social media plays a big role in how millennials think, as well as how copywriters can maintain personal authenticity without setting aside or overpowering the client’s.
