"Build, good. Hello once again. Thank you for joining us on this. The space nuts podcast episode two hundred nine. My name is Andrew Dunkley and with me as always is professor. Fred Watson Astronomer Lodge afraid. Lure Andrew, how're you doing? I'm quite well sir. How are you quite well to? Laura Sims, doesn't it and so we can? Go something much more to say. But we carry on regardless and there's plenty to talk about again this week. Including an update on the styling satellite program. A planet discovered by the University of southern Queensland but it's more about how they did it than the discovery itself. That's interesting, and we get a full up a story that seems to be doing the rounds collision between two Black Hulls that looks to have created an explosion of light. That sounds rather spectacular. Will also tackle some audience questions about except planets and this. This one fascinates me. I hope you've done your homework. Quack, matter and stars. I. Thought. That was the stuff of myth, but we'll find out but that's all coming up. We'll start off. Fred with a look at the styling. Satellite Program is an update day. This is I think it is the certainly the tenth launch off starring satellites, which takes the total up to something like six hundred sounds delights in orbit of course. This is the issue that is got astronomers. Hot under under the color all over the world, both professional and amateur, because of the amount of light these spacecraft. Reflect back from the sun and. SPACEX have come to the party on this they have. been very concerned that that's the case, and so they looked town to mitigate this and I think I'm right in saying that this the whole trench of an a believe it was fifty seven. Spacecraft will launch with probably some other payloads in as well as a fifty seven of the styling centralize, but this whole trench of them now employ uses what's. What SPACEX is calling well. The cooler satellites visor sat because they'd go to visor assum visor..

"Classroom episode. Hey, everybody, minding his Chris Caleb. Oh, I'm so glad you're here. Thank you for being part of Sisal School we have an awesome community of people all over the world, doing all kinds of cool stuff and I am just thrilled and honored to be able to produce the show for you. Twelve hundred and sixty nine episodes and counting. For the first half of this year, which is two thousand twenty at least at the time I making the show? Hopefully you could be listening years from now, and this is still relevant. Well this topic in particular, I'm pretty sure it's always going to be relevant, but just about everything I do I attempt to keep it relatively evergreen or timeless so this in particular though we're going to talk today about unsupportive family members. Okay, so before I jump into that last week. I did a recap or a summary of what all of our first half of the year classroom episodes have been about our. They've been coming out every Monday in two thousand twenty. Going for we're going to focus much more in these episodes on marketing or getting the word out about this new product or service. Because aside from questions about creating your first project. That would be the probably the number, one topic or category of questions. I get. Then I hear more questions about marketing than anything else. However this week I have something different for you as mentioned I. Want to talk about this question. What if your family doesn't support your side hustle? Now, you might be out there and say well. My family is amazing and. They've actually been nothing but supportive, and if that is the case awesome. I'm not saying every family member is unsupportive, but I also know because I hear from people all the time in different situations. This is actually kind of a common question. I'm it's not as common as the others about marketing and such thankfully but. The reality is that not everyone has a supportive network around all the time, and sometimes it's the people that we love who might not be supportive of our dreams of our dreams our calls, the things that we want to accomplish for ourselves, which ironically might actually help us be better, caregivers or providers or partners to them, but you know as I said. This is reality. And so you might be around. People who don't understand why you want to do this in the first place, or they just think it's not possible. They think it's all a scam or just downright negative. So what do you do? That's what I want to talk about. Today got a couple of tips to share with you and I also want to share maybe as the framing for all of this an analogy. That I have borrowed from Laura Sims Laura's a friend of mine. She is a career coach fulltime career coach now living in Atlanta, but she wasn't actor for Awhile and California and then. Then thought she wanted to be a designer before finding what she loved the most in her role as a career coach, so she's been down a few different paths in the normal process of finding that were born to do. You can check out her work at your career homecoming dot com by the way I will link it up in the notes as well and this analogy that she uses. I heard it several years ago and I thought about it several times whenever people say what if your family doesn't support you? Try to talk to my family about my project, and they've just always so negative and the analogy she uses is borrowed from the theater world. Like the role of acting the role of putting on a play, and she talks about the difference between a dress, rehearsal versus opening.

"Have Laura SIMS joining us her first novel she's written poetry, but we're not familiar with your poetry. But we've read your book lookers, so thanks for being with us, Laura. Thank you for having me. Okay. So just describe for us your novel looker. Okay. Well, it's about a woman who life is kind of spiraling out of control. Her husband has recently left her at least in part due to her infertility. They'd wanted to have kids, and they couldn't have kids and Dave their marriages ended so things just start to get really bad for her. And she's always had an interest in the famous actress who lives a few houses down from them in their neighborhood in the area very much like Brooklyn, but out of her life kind of spirals out of control. She becomes increasingly obsessed with her and she starts to act out in very, strange and disturbing ways. I know, you know, why I kept picturing as the famous actress as I was reading this. And just I'm like, it's either Michelle Williams error megi Jilin hall, and I only said that because those are the two actresses, I know that live in Brooklyn. I know. So this story is is dark, and I would save definitely if you have if you're trying to get pregnant this book to read it we've been very triggering. But was this book? I mean, how'd you get the idea for because it is a dark story? It is. I, you know, I used to live in an area of Brooklyn that we're, you know, several kind of celebrity couples lived kind of see them around sometimes, and you know, in New York, you're you're close you're living right next to people knocking his. Yeah. You're not stalking them. I was not talking anyone. Yeah. But you, you know, you see their lives, and you see like what a difference there is between their lives in your own. And I was walking home from the grocery one day. And I think it was the middle of August. And it was blazingly hot, and humid, and I had like twenty grocery bags. I was carrying and carry them up to the fourth floor. And I'd house wannabes glamorous people, and she looked very just, you know, wonderfully style than fresh like fresh from the salon, and I felt this normal kind of up welling NB all of us feel right? But then this voice popped into my head. Like that was the voice of the narrator. And my gosh, I was a lot angrier and more in because I wasn't. So I went home, and I started writing it and just writing the voice down, basically, cutting it kind of lead me where it would. And then that night I actually dreamed that I was and I hadn't thought like, oh, this is the novel or I'm gonna call it or any of that. But that night I had a dream. I was holding up finished buck. And it said looker by Laura Kim. Oh my gosh. It was crazy. And so I was like I have to write. I know I have goosebumps from you just because you were it sounds made up. Right. It's true. How long did it take to write it? Then once you start write my first novel. It took me a few years off and on because I was doing other things, you know, as you mentioned, I was working on poetry, and I had been kind of working on young adult fiction. And so I you know, I was kind of jumping between project, but it was kind of my like passion project on the side. I always really excited to return to it whenever I could. Yeah. And I I love the, you know, the protagonist is telling the story of her complete unraveling also teaches poetry at ninety. Did. I did quite enjoy this side story with her and the one studio. Yes. Yeah. I mean, I guess it was like it was a touch tone. It could have been a touchstone for. I'm not sure which direction, but she at that point was just so I mean, I really felt the heartache of her being able to get pregnant, I know. With infertility. Yeah. I definitely, you know. I did. Yeah. Trying to get pregnant with my son which eventually worked out, but you know, it's hell. Yeah. Heartbreaking, and you kind of look around. And you see like in the neighborhood where we lived in Brooklyn like it's full of families and everybody else seems to be having an easy time. Which is not the case. Sure. It feels that way. You know, when you really weird place to be and because I struggled as well. And I and so you know, when I was thinking because I thought this was be more of a psychological thriller. But I felt like, you know, it's really a character study. I'm what happens when you cannot get what you want and you lost. And it drives you to lose everything and drives everyone away when you're focused early so narrow, and it's also a lot I feel like about and this was not intentional. But looking at it now, I see that. It's a lot about society's expectations for women. And like, it's not just that. She wants. To have a kid. It's also she wants to join you know, what people are doing these around her because she feels like that's part of what you do. You know? Right. If you're just joining us for talking with Laura's, SAM's, it's her first novel looker has as Reese Witherspoon optioned, your Barker what's going on. We have always ask everybody that. Well, it has been options very exciting entertainment, one optioned, the rights for on behalf of Emily Mortimer and her husband Allesandro Nicola have a production company called king be you're gonna turn it into a limited series. That's yeah. I'm really excited about Emily starring enter because we just Mary Poppins, exactly. She will be the narrator and we've met with her and she's just wonderful. And she totally gets the book. Tuck. And so it's really it's exciting. I know. Poetry. And then you write your first. I know. It's so weird. How fun for you. Congratulations. Thank you. Exciting very much. Will you have much control over the screenplay? I don't know. They actually asked me if I would be interested in writing it and at first I said, yes. And then when I thought about it more and talked it over with my agent. I was like I think actually I'd rather consults. Yeah. No. And I think either way you're not gonna have super control for, you know, thank you will if you write the screenplay, but but you still there why hope you sold your book for at least six figures, Laura that would make us really happy. You don't have to tell us would make really really happy about it. And I do think that that is kind of a trend now to ask the novelists ever since. Gillian Flynn, she Rogun girl, and then she wrote that the screenplay, and then she did, you know for for another movie of her, so, but she also covered television. She was a reporter. It's a whole different. Definitely. And I it's clear she has wanted to move in that direction, and I don't really want to keep writing. Yeah. Yeah. What makes it comfortable? Exactly we have to ask you Laura that we ask everybody. What's the last book that you read the last great book that I read oh gosh. Whenever anyone asks me, I totally blank out. But actually, I have one k it is called the queen's gambit by Walter tavist. It's a little bit old at from the nineteen eighties. If you can believe that. But he wrote the color of money and a man who fell to earth like some movie some books that were turned into movies while ago, but it's a wonderful book. It's about this young orphan girl who becomes a chess prodigy and champion. Just kind of with her in her life journey and she struggled with addiction, and she defeats all these like Russian champions. And it's just it's the kind of psychological thriller that I like, which is kind of weird. And I feel like looker is kind of a weird, you know. Thriller. So it's like, I just reading it. I just loved it. Daily recommend to. All right. That's why we did not know that the same author wrote those other because those two right? Yeah. Those were much more well known that a friend gave me this. And I think it's kind of a cult classic. Oh, all right. What's it called again greens? Are you at? Right. And what a treat for us to to meet you and what an experience in your life. And thank you for being on our show. The book is looker by Laura. Sams, d are you already starting your next book, Laura? I am. Yes. Can you crying? You're trying. I can tease it a little it's it's a battery receptionist who works at a Bank and shoots the poet on the side again poetry. Of a role, but she has this really perfectly balanced life with her work, and then her creative work, and then she starts getting these calls. These phone calls from this man who. Cretins her slash harasses her. And then he kind of becomes her muse and very strange things happened from there. Sounds good. Laura. For the TV series and keep writing and thanks for being on our show. Thanks so much for having a couple.

"We are delighted we have Laura SIMS joining us her first novel she's written poetry, but we're not familiar with your poetry. But we've read your book looker, so thanks for being with us, Laura. Thank you for having me. Okay. So describe for us your novel looker. Okay. Well, it's about a woman who life is kind of spiraling out of control. Her husband has recently left her at least in part due to infertility. They wanted to have kids, and they couldn't have kids and Dave their marriages ended so things start to get really bad for her. And she's always had an interest in the famous actress who lives a few houses down from them in their neighborhood and area very much like Brooklyn, but out her life kind of spiral out of control. She becomes increasingly obsessed with her and she starts to act out in very strange and serving waves. I know, you know, I kept picturing as the famous actresses, I was reading this. And just like it's either Michelle Williams error Maguy Jilin. And I only said that because of this those are the two actresses, I know live live in Brooklyn. I know. So this story is is dark, and I would save definitely if you have if you're trying to get pregnant this book for us not to read it would be very triggering. But was this book? I mean, how'd you get the idea for because it is a dark story? Yes, it is. I, you know, I used to live in an area of Brooklyn that we're, you know, several of celebrity couple with and you would kind of be them around sometimes, and you know, in New York, you're you're close you're living right next to people. Yeah. You're not stalking them. I was not yet talking anyway. Yeah. But you you know, you see their lives. Then you see like what a difference there is between their lives in your own. And I was walking home from the grocery one day. And I think it was the middle of August. And it was blazingly hot, and humid, and I had like twenty grocery bags. I was carrying and carry them up to the fourth floor. And I have one of bees glamorous people, and she looked very just, you know, wonderfully style than fresh like fresh from the one, and I felt this normal kind of up welling NB all of us feel right? But then this voice popped into my head. Like that was the voice of the narrator. And my gosh, I am a lot angrier and more. So I went home, and I started writing it and just writing the voice down, basically. And letting it kind of lead me where it would. And then that night I actually dreamed that I was and I hadn't thought like, oh, this is the novel or what I'm gonna call it or any of that. But that night I had a dream. I was holding up finished buck, and it said looker, Laura them. Oh my God. It was crazy. And so I was like I have to right. I know. Oh, I have goosebumps from you to say, no. Because you were it sounds made up, right? True. How long did it take to write it? Then. Once you start right may first novel. It took me a few years off and on because I was doing other things, you know, as you mentioned, I was working on poetry, and I had been kind of working on young adult fiction. And so I you know, I was kind of jumping between project, but it was kind of my passion project on the side. But always really excited to return to it whenever I could. Yeah. And I love the, you know, the protagonist is telling the story of her complete unraveling also teaches poetry at nine. I did I did quite enjoy this side story with her and the one studio. Yeah. I mean, I guess it was like it was a touch tone. It could have been a touchstone for. I'm not sure which direction, but she at that point was just so I mean, I really felt the heartache of her being able to get pregnant, I know. With infertility. Yeah. I definitely, you know. I did. Yeah. Trying to get pregnant with my son which eventually worked out, but you know, it's hell. It's an. Yeah. Heartbreaking, and you kind of look around and you see like in the neighborhood where we lived in Brooklyn like it's full of families and everybody else seems to be having an easy time, which is not the case, Charlotte. It feels that way, you know, when you really weird place to be and because I struggled as well. And I got and so, you know, when I was thinking because I thought this was be more of a psychological thriller. But I felt like, you know, it's really a character study. I'm what happens when you cannot get what you want. Every lost in it, drives you to lose everything and drives everyone away when your focus is so narrow. Yeah. And it's also a lot I feel like about and this was not intentional. But looking at it. Now, I see that. It's a lot about society's expectations for women. And like, it's not just that. She wants to have a kid. It's also she wants to join you know, what people are doing around her because she feels like that's part of what you do. You know? Right. If you're just joining us for talking with Laura's, SAM's, it's her first novel looker has as Reese Witherspoon optioned, your Barker what's going on. We have to ask everybody that. Well, it has been optioned very exciting entertainment, one optioned the rights for on behalf of Emily Mortimer. And her husband Alexander Nicola. A production company called king be and they're going to turn it into a limited series. That's yeah. I'm really excited about. Starring 'cause we just saw her in Mary Poppins, exactly she will be the narrator and we've met with her, and she's just wonderful, and she totally gets the book. And so it's really exciting. I know. Poetry. And then you write your first. I know it's so weird. For you. Congratulations. Thank you very much. Will you have much control over the screenplay? I don't know. They actually asked me if I would be interested in writing it and at first I said, yes. And then when I thought about it more and talked it over with my, and I was like, I think actually I'd rather consult. Yeah. You know? And I think either way you're not gonna have super control for you know. Oh, yeah. Thank you will if you right? But you still while they're hope he sold your book for at least six figures, Laura that would make us really happy. You don't have to tell us this really really happy about it. And I do think that that is kind of a trend now to ask the novelists ever since Gillian Flynn, she Rogun girl, and then she wrote that the screenplay, and then she did, you know for for another movie of her, so, but she also covered television. She was a reporter. It's a whole different definitely. And I it's clear she has wanted to move in that direction. I don't really want to keep writing. That. Yeah. Yeah. Makes you comfortable. Exactly we have to ask you something Laura that we asked everybody. What's the last book that you read the last great book that I read oh gosh. Whenever anyone me. I totally blank out. But actually, I have one k it is called the queen's gambit by Walter tethers. It's a little bit old that from the nineteen eighties. If you can believe that. But he wrote the color of money and a man who fell to earth like movie some books that were turned into movies while ago, but it's a wonderful book. It's about this young orphan girl who becomes a prodigy and champion. And you're just kind of with her in her life journey and she struggled with addiction, and she defeats all these like Russian champions. And it's just it's the kind of psychological thriller that I like which of nine of weird, and I feel like looker it's kind of a weird, you know. Thriller. So it's like, I just reading it. I just love debt. Recommend to. All right. That's why we did not know that the same author wrote those other because we're familiar with those right? Those are much more well-known. Yeah. But a friend gave me this. And I think it's kind of a cult classic. Oh, all right. Are you at? And what treat for us to to meet you and what an experience in your life. And thank you for being on our show. The book is looker by Laura SIMS are you already starting your next book, Laura? I am. Yes. Can you? You're trying I can tease it a little. It's a batter who works at a Bank and shoots the poet on the side again poetry. A bit of a role, but she has this really perfectly balanced life with her work, and then her creative work, and then she starts getting these calls. These phone calls from the man who. Her slash harasses her. And then he kind of becomes her muse and very strange things happen from there. Sounds good. Laura. For the TV series and keep writing and thanks for being on your show. Thanks so much for having me a couple of copies giveaway. Six five one six hundred one one zero seven when when we come back. We've got a notable obituary in a brand new song. Recently overheard on Donna and Steve white shirt. I got I didn't realize until I got home. It's cufflinks. Guess what? I don't have. Cufflinks? I just do. On previous relationships with them. Honestly, it's for every every man I've killed. Boy, if at the end of your life. You're like an when we went down to the basement. We did stumble on six.

Slash moving forward. Welcome welcome. This is hot us so school. My name is Chris Gayle about your host. And here we are at the weekly recap looking back. This is week number twenty, nine of season two. I have been out and about around the world, but I just made it back. I was in Doha Qatar and then Vienna, Austria. A couple of places along the way, had a great trip, but glad to be back in the saddle kind of bunch of stuff to work on including a lot of things for you. In today's recap, I wanna share some notes on SEO search engine optimization from a guest expert. I got a great listener question that came in and rather than try to answer it myself. I went to an expert. I'm not really an expert in a lot of things, but certainly not SEO and I've also got a story to share with you a helpful lesson perhaps on this topic of whether you should tell your family about your side-hustle or not. This came up a couple of days ago and the episode five sixty six account. It generates ten thousand dollars a month in sweat equity. So I'll say more about that in a moment. But let's start with this question about SEO question comes in from Abigail also known as abbey. And that'd be rights into to say, hey, Chris, I've now listened to the side hustle audiobook more than ten times. I was desperate for a business coach before I read the book, but now I'm already making more money than I was before my existing business using these steps. I haven't even got through the twenty seven days yet, and I've already launched by new idea brief interjection here to say Abby. That's amazing. Congratulations. I'm glad the book was helpful, but of course you did the work. So I had knowledge that and now back to the note, I wondered what advice you could offer about SEO and getting my website found. Do you know of anyone who offers training or advice in this area? Or do you think it's worth paying someone to do it? For me, I run a baking business in a saturated market, but my products are unique and I'm learning how to create offers. I can't believe this didn't occur to me before. I just want to be able to reach my audience. Awesome. Abby will congratulations again and let's see if we can get your offers in front of even more people. So to get some info that might be helpful for Abby and hopefully some of our listeners as well. I went to my go-to expert about SEO. His name is rand fish kin. It's been a friend of mine for a while. He wrote a new book called lost and founder, which is a great title lost and found her. The subtitle is painfully honest field guide to the startup world. I had a chance to read an advance copy of that book and I really enjoyed it. But that book itself is not about SEO. That's about his experience starting a company. The company that he started was all about SEO and his new company is called spark Toro so you can check that out. We'll link it up, but speaking of links, he sent several things to me which I'm gonna pass on. He says, my best advice is to start by checking out a few free resources, and he's got links here to to video courses from skill share. One is called introduction to SEO tactics and strategy. Another one is called SEO today strategies to earn trust. If you prefer text or visual guides, there's a link to a beginner's guide to SEO on MAs dot com, Emo z. or mosaic. So several resources there that will link up in today's notes page. They also says, once she's got a baseline grasp on SEO fundamentals, I'd recommend working with a consultant if that's an affordable option, but she'll be vastly better at choosing a good one as well as figuring out whether she can or wants to do it all herself with just a few hours of investment. All right. So some great SEO resources there from rand, again, links to free. Videos and a free text and visual guide will be at the notes page, which today, I believe is satisfied school dot com slash five, six, eight. Thank you round. And good luck adding. Let's do a quick sponsor, shout out and then a story about what to do when your family doesn't understand, that would be when your family doesn't understand your side hustle or thanks.

Friends can be supportive. Sometimes they can be our biggest cheerleaders. Sometimes however, they can be critics, cynics or skeptics. I got to thinking about this while recording the episode from day before yesterday number five, sixty six. And in this episode, Rebecca gave some advice we always ask people like, what's your advice to somebody who's thinking of doing something similar to you? And she said something contrarian, which of course I loved. She said I would caution them against discussing their idea with them numbers or even certain friends because those people may not always be the most objective and many times. They might also try to talk you out of your ideas, whether your ideas are good or not. Isn't that interesting? That makes perfect sense to me. Again, some people are incredibly supportive. Other people not so much, or maybe they're projecting some of their own experience onto you. Maybe they're disappointed that they're not starting their side project and they're taking out their resentment or their n beyond you, whatever it is when you encounter that situation or you think what if I tell these people about this thing that I'm doing this very well could be the logical outcome like they're just going to think it's stupid. And they're gonna tell me. So maybe I'm gonna get discouraged. What do you do in that situation? While the two obvious answers are either tell them or you don't right, like you decide, okay, I'm just going to tell them and if they say something critical than I'm just not going to pay attention, I'm gonna keep doing my thing or you could say, I'm gonna keep it from them entirely. Now there may be cases when door number one is correct door number two is correct. But what I wanted to tell you about today was a different option, a third door, if you will, and to give credit to another friend of mine. This story comes from her. Her name is Laura SIMS. She is a career coach author living in Atlanta, Georgia. I believe I had to stumble for a second because for a while she was in Texas and came to several of my events in Texas, but now she's moved and Laura has a great experience of navigating this process and finding that third door that third way in her stories, he was getting ready to make this really big career change. She had previously worked as an actor in an acting teacher and California. She enjoyed that for a while, but then wanted to make a shift. And she knew if she just called her mom and said, hey, mama, I'm thinking about starting an online business. Her mama be very worried and her mom would have. All kinds of questions and just just basically not understand. And so what she did the way she navigated that situation was she told her mom, but not until the whole project was ready to go. So there was a whole process a couple of months while she's getting things ready, building a website, all that stuff. She didn't talk with her mom about any of that. But then when she was ready to launch that website, that's when she said, hey, mom, like I've been thinking of making a change for a while, and I've been doing all these things to prepare. Here's the website, you can take a look and starting next week, people will be able to hire me for coaching sessions in doing it that way. She was able to directly or implicitly assuage her mom's concerns, and she was also able to go through the messy preparation phase on her own. So the analogy she used for this and the recommendation that comes from her acting days is there's a dress rehearsal and a performance at the dress rehearsal. A lot of things go wrong. The show isn't fully filled out at that point. There issues that have to be worked out. There might even be some things that need to be changed. And that's just part of the process. You go through the rehearsal to figure out how to have a great opening night. And when it comes to family members or anyone else who might not understand or you think might be negative, you don't invite them to the dress rehearsal. That's a private time. That's the time for you to figure things out. You invite them to opening night. So in other words, you don't tell them about an idea that you may turn into a product or service and create an offer for it cetera. You tell them about the product or service that you have spent the past weeks or months, or however long preparing that way. A lot of their objections and concerns can be addressed in the beginning. They might not have anything negative to say at all. In fact, they might say something positive, but if they do say something negative at that point, you're not going to be derailed because you've already put in all this work. So I really liked that story in analogy, not everybody has to be involved in your inner process, not everyone has to go behind the scenes. So think twice before inviting people to your dress rehearsal, save it up for when you're ready to invite them to opening night, you can learn about Laura's work at your career homecoming dot com. As with the other things we will link them up in the notes. It
