Two Boomer Women & The Lost Art of Conversation

Flashback: Apartment Fires and The Trials and Tribulations of Self-Employment

June 8, 2020

June is off to a bit of crazy start for Two Boomer Women so thank goodness they have episodes in the vault!  Here is another one from June 2019.

To bring you up to speed, one year ago Agnes's daughter and her family were "collateral damage" from an apartment fire in the suite above them in their downtown high rise.  They quickly learned the generosity of people... although Agnes had called her daughter just last week to comment on the one year 'anniversary' and, one year later, they are back in their suite but there are still issues resulting from the fire.  A good reminder how things can change in the blink of an eye.

This time last year, Mar Sulaika was working on a contract with a local business to hold IELTS (International English Language Testing System) training for their employees.  Mar Sulaika and Agnes continued that conversation and brainstormed ideas - spoiler alert: the manager who was supporting her proposal was transferred  out of the area shortly after this conversation (welcome to the world of the self-employed).  Part of this conversation is a reminder of the value of The Lost Art of Conversation!

Mar Sulaika was having a small medical procedure so Agnes may (and did) do double duty as Florence Nightingale!

Finally, a brief discussion and story about unions.
