In this segment we visit with Deborah Rinner the co-author with Ro Crosbie of the book "Your Invisible Toolbox - The Technological Ups And Interpersonal Downs of the Millennial Generation" about this target demographic. What did they learn in the research they did for the 100 (very short) chapters and are there any "secrets" in the book? However, don't let the title confuse you...any generation can use the tools in this toolbox to improve their career and life goals.

While on vacation on beautiful Anna Maria Island we ran into, for the second year, Dr. James Rappold who "holds court" at the Island Coffee Haus. We were interested in what it is that he does and oh my...he told us. The bottom line is: "Most manufacturers and businesses are disconnected from their consumer.
