ILP-0036: What I Learned In My Seven Years Journey

ILP-0035: Should I leave My Kids In Dayhome In Order To Work?

One of the tough decisions that permanent residents have to make is how to handle the intersection between their careers and their responsibilities as parents. Many make the decision to become stay-at-home parents while others combine their careers with raising their kids especially the little ones. What are the factors to consider when making a choice between leaving kids in dayhome and being a full-time parent? I answer these in this episode. Have fun listening to this.

ILP-0034: Is Canada Racist?

Is Canada Racist? Well, I spilled the beans in this episode. Since I have had people ask me this question under the radar at different times, I thought it's high time I shared my perspective in public. Perhaps a few people will be shocked by what I say here but hey, it's one perspective out of lots. I love Canada but I need to speak the truth here. Enjoy this and let me know what your perspective on this question is. Thank you for listening! Have you joined the Immigrant Life Community yet? We want to have you in our community.

ILP-0031: When In Doubt Be Nice

Life is hard. Being an immigrant is tough. Keeping up hope when hell seems to have broken loose is a courageous act. Unfortunately, we don't often notice the brave ones amongst us because they are not the definition of bravery that has been planted in our subconscious. I used to act very rudely to some superheroes in the city of Calgary until I realized my error. I share this little thought in this episode in the hope that at least one person will join me in living the principle of being nice when in doubt. Happy listening.

ILP 0028: Should I Take A Contract Job?

Let's talk about Sally. Sally arrived in Canada and has been without a job for a while but suddenly she secures a contract role. She is however concerned that the role is not a permanent one. John, on the other hand, has been in Canada for about two years on a permanent role but he is frustrated with being on the same pay scale for so long without a significant increase. His friends suggest he should pursue a contract role but as glamorous as this sounds, he is worried that he will lose his employment benefits. What should Sally and John do? I share my insights in this episode. Enjoy! Have you joined the Immigrant Life Community yet? We want to have you in our community.
