About The Modern Millennial

This is a an adventure in business.

It's an experiment to build something cool, unique, and meaningful.

Writer. Coach. Sorcerer. @ The Modern Millennial. ☀️ 🌵 🤓

👋 I'm Robert:

  • My dream is to be a professional writer and build a business – with a team.
  • I love helping people grow, glow, and shine.
  • I want share valuable content and quality products.
  • Using great technology makes me happy.
  • I want to make the world a better place.

The Idea

It's a lifestyle brand. The Modern Millennial. ModMil for short.

A place where people find great articles and interesting stuff that matters. They connect, collaborate, and find products to makes their lives better.

Solving Some Real Problems

  • Whenever you search for something online, ever notice how there's a ton of irrelevant shit? Marketing crap? Clickbait? Let's fix that.
  • There's a too much waste and our earth is dying. Maybe we can promote sustainable products, brands, or organizations that improve that?
  • What about the pain and suffering in the world? Social injustice, poverty, corruption, waste. What if we tried to change it?

My vision is that it grows so big I can leave my 9-5 and focus on it full-time. It won't be easy, but I'm willing to fight for it.

The Process

  • I've setup some initial partnerships with sustainable brands. ModMil get's a small cut of anything purchased through the site. It's keeps the lights on and supports growing brands.
  • I also plan to develop and sell products. Maybe some eco-friendly skincare and wellness items. Perhaps we create digital products like e-books, mental health tools, sustainability guides, or resources people use for empowerment.
  • For the past 2 months I've spent my nights and weekend on research, business development, and writing articles.
  • I've ordered product samples and setup partnerships with eco-friendly vendors. I've build out some tech and business tools for growth.
  • I even talked my husbamd into helping with the logo and design elements.

And I tested a few content management platforms:

  1. Zoho has awesome features and it's really fast (very well built), but it's lacking in design capabilities.
  2. Squarespace is a clunky piece of capitalistic dog shit. They can go straight to hell.
  3. Wix was a great start, but it's really slow. After a bug in their software broke the ModMil site they treated me poorly. I paid for a year and had to fire them. They refused to refund the $150 I paid up front. #fuckwix 🖕
  4. Wordpress was happening... 10 years ago. It has major security flaws, and breaks down at the drop of a hat. It's a dying technology.
  5. Then I found Ghost.io –  It's a non-profit, really fast, and built on powerful, clean technology standards. Their support team is beyond amazing. I may need a little help with the coding stuff though.  
Saturday. Summer. Beautiful sunny day, so my friends and I decided to make a picnic and watch the sundown. Pretty fun and relaxed day.

Wanna Get Involved?

ModMil needs experts to create content, develop products, conduct research, configure technology, generate value, and help grow this puppy into a powerhouse.
