Two Boomer Women & The Fine Art of Conversation

People Pleasing!  How many of us are guilty of that?  

Brenda Florida is a reformed People Pleaser who now liberates others to their authentic power and unique self-expression.

Many women (especially us Boomers!) are raised to believe that life is to be lived in service to others, that others' needs will come before our own.  Brenda's "sandbox" metaphor really helps understand where personal power does and doesn't lie.

Her "Solve It Method" has helped many people get past issues... whether they are People Pleasers or are trying to regain their power around other issues.  Brenda shares it with listeners at:

Perhaps it's an omen that so many of the guests recently are coaching Boomer women to recreate their income source, whether that means leaving your current 9-5 or revitalizing it or yourself.

Today's guest has another interesting option for you: Freelancing.

The possibilities seem endless, certainly more than Agnes ever realized... the trick is to get noticed!  Sharon Dyer supports professional over-55s transitioning from a career to create a plan as they step into the next phase of their life, to have the confidence they can have and truly enjoy the lifestyle they desire and know they can manage the changes that come along.

Sharon helps you discern between risks and chances, she coaches you through change and opportunity, she helps you see the rewards that come with courage.  Finally, with Sharon, you'll create the profile that gets noticed!

TBW Replay: Can You Afford to Leave the J-O-B?

September 8, 2021

The podcast seems to be running a theme right now about leaving, or at least changing up, your current 9-5.  Can you afford to do that?  You need to crunch the numbers ahead of time!

This episode is a replay of an episode aired last February, wherein Agnes reviews her Income-Outgone Analyzer, with an invite to download a copy so you can run your own budget through it.  Also a short, but full-on, course about other facets of retirement you might want to consider... plan for.

TBW Editorial Rant: Agnes on the Up-Coming Federal Election

September 1, 2021

Twenty-two months into a 4-year mandate Canada's Prime Minister Justin Trudeau called a federal election.

I this episode, Agnes reviews the three main party platforms (for lack of a better word...) as they pertain to seniors' issues.  Boomers are either seniors or soon-to-be and Grey Ruckus is all about seniors so Agnes isolated those issues... yes, we are well aware there are a myriad of issues in any election, but this episode focuses on seniors.
