"A fan of the twilight, Siri's You've got something new to sink your teeth into. For the first time in a decade, Stephenie Meyer is back with a new book, Midnight Sun. It's a return to the world of love, Romance and the undead. And this book is a retelling of her debut novel, Twilight. In twilight is sweet and beautiful. Bella told you the story. This time. That same story is told from the perspective of Edward the dark and do me vampire. These books are pretty much as Bigas books can get. They've sold hundreds of millions of copies around the world that created a community of fiercely loyal fans. They've led to a Siri's of hit films. The road to writing. This new book has been a tough one for Stephanie, and there was even a time she said she'd given up on it for good. Stephanie spoke to Tom Power aboutthe one person who convinced her to return to midnight sun and how she eventually found her way back to the world she created. The one that changed her life. Listen to this. Stephanie, How are you? I'm great. Thank you so much for having me. It's a pleasure to have you. This is a weird interview for me. I'm not gonna lie to you because you know at the time were talking security around this book around midnight. Sun is so tight. I couldn't even get a chance to look at the book. It's completely under wraps to prevent any leak. So just tell me about that. What's it like for you to be sitting on top of something that so many people are just dying to get their hands on? Well, it's ah, sometimes a little bit stressful. However, on this one, it's a little bit hard to spoil. Basically, everyone knows the plot already, so it's not like anyone could say. Oh, my gosh. This happens because everyone already knows that So Ah, it's not quite a stressful that usually is. Obviously nobody wants it, Tio. Leak early, but don't really spoilers. Yeah, And I want to talk about that lack of spoilers in a second, But like, are you Are you excited? Or are you nervous? It still is a new work coming out in some ways. Yeah. I mean, I'm a deeply anxious person. So I'm always nervous, Excited is is not an emotion. I experience a lot nervous is definitely kind of a common one. I'm you know what kind of say something with anxiety. It is comforting to know that even when someone gonna reaches your heights, he's dealer get anxious. That makes me feel sort of better. I actually think it makes it worse. The anxiety like it's not like you get to a place where I have been successful. So now I no longer feel anxiety. I think you get the I have been successful. So clearly, I'm an imposter and everyone's going to figure that out. That's where that I thought that would go away by. You know, like the third book, maybe you No, no, it just gets worse. Oh, well, that's that's somehow good to know and disheartened at the same time, But I mean, speaking up, but this is sort of this. This. This This is a stage for you with this book that could be described as either kind of like a serene calm before the storm or sort of like a purgatory. Like, you know, these are the last moments in this that this book just belongs to you. I mean, is that is that bittersweet that you're about to Put it out there, or do you feel like celebrating? Um it's at the bittersweet is definitely the feeling. I mean, honestly, the way I get through life is by not thinking about these things, so I just sort of live in this world where nothing's happening. I haven't read many books. There's nothing to worry about. And then Every now and then I have to step out of that little dream world and Deal with the reality of it, but Yeah, it's it's always hard to put your Your work out into the world because you know, while there'll be people who who like it, there will be people who don't and no matter how many people like that you always feel bad about those that don't So that's that's always a harder thing. So let's talk about this. This untucked about herbal book that is somehow unspoiled Obel insupportable at the same time, Let's talk about it for a second. What I understand this is a retelling of the first novel of twilight from the point of view of a different character. For those of listeners who aren't familiar. You know, this time we see the story through the eyes of Edward the Vampire while the original was narrated by the female lead, Bella, Am I on the right track? Yep. So I understand that it's Darker, even though it is the same story. It's told from a different perspective. And you said that made it a bit darker. Could you tell me about that? Guess so. Bella, comparatively, is very happy. Go lucky character like she is 100% in for falling in love and having a happy ending. Edward. On the other hand. Because of what he is and how he views himself doesn't really see himself as worthy of love. And he doesn't believe that there is a happy ending impossible for him and Bella, so he's pretty Pessimistic the entire time. This is all going to end in horror and tragedy. That's his mindset. And it's all his own fault because he shouldn't have done any of things that he did. He's field spiraling and guilt having massive amounts of indecision and self doubt. So it's It's just Ah, harder place to be, I think also, it is. Ah, lot more realistic to my own mental statement, Then Bellas is I was about to say, I mean, we just talked briefly about like how you know even when you have massive success it, But that doesn't mean You're not anxious. And yeah, you're right. It does sound like you're writing about your own experience in some ways through Edward. Well, I've always felt like I am. Closer to Edward in opinions and how I see the world and when I was writing toilet, I don't think his I think people saw him is a very confident Person. He was very sure of himself. He seemed in control of any given situation. But meanwhile, I was always aware of where his head was even 15 years ago. So to me, the things that were coming from him made perfect sense. But I don't know if they came across In a way that was clearest what was really going on. I suppose all narrow it depending on how surprised people are by midnight sun or if they saw it coming, is it? Do you learn something new about the story? Reading it from me the story that you wrote. Originally, Do you learn something about writing through the perspective of a different character? Little things like I said, I was I was aware of Where Edwards has heads was when I was writing twilight, so it's not a huge revelation. But there are moments where you're like, Oh, So this to him is not a book with a happy ending. Okay? I wasn't expecting that. You know things like that.

Please welcome Stephanie to the show. Okay, we'll Stephanie. We are so excited to have you on the here for her podcast. Thank you so much for joining us. And we are so curious about everything that you've created and your and so I think. Our audience is going to be very very interested in the business aspect of. Everything that we're about to talk about some super excited cool. I'm so excited to be talking to you. Guys for those who don't know. Tell us a little bit about your health. I'm Stephanie. Fleming and I'm a creative entrepreneur. I actually call myself like an accidental entrepreneur. I started my business me and my big ideas with my mom twenty actually over twenty years ago started in my garage with an idea of just one idea for making stickers for the scrapbooking industry at that time and. And really just kind of wanted to do it too. I needed a creative outlet. Yes, but I needed to pay the bills like I. was you know a young mom and struggling to make ends meet, and just really wanting to like. Go out there and I would do anything because I you know I wanted a better life for myself, and for my kids and and so I was definitely you're. You're? The definition of a hustler like I was like I have no money, but I will put in the sweat equity so. We been hustling with me and my big ideas for. Over twenty years now, and we've created everything from paper stickers and now planner, so planners is our latest the happy planners, our latest product line and It's just been such a a wonderful thing for us to get into because we get to share a love for creativity for positively, and that's been kind of where I have fallen in the last probably five or six years which. Not only being an entrepreneur in a business person, but also being able to be the spokesperson for our product and our brand, and that's something that I've been totally passionate about. It's amazing. I'm curious. So, what did you do before you started your business? Were you a stay at home? Mom? Did you have have a job, so I was? I was pregnant when I was eighteen. Not Married had had a baby, and when immediately from high school to I need to find some way to take care of my son and I did in home daycare for eight years, and was daycare provider for six kids usually at one time and it was you know it's honest work? It's hard work. It's eleven hour days for you know for eight years and you know all I to do is be a good mom, and and so I didn't have a college education. I grew up in the craft industry though my. My parents had a manufacturing and distributing business so I grew up from picking orders in the warehouse. To you know watching my parents who are entrepreneurs basically navigate the craft industry and come along with them to trade shows and things like that so I always had that creative bug, and and even as an entrepreneur as a kid I was making little catalog, so you can buy these cards here, my designs and so, but then life hits, and then you have to go out, and you know and do the best you can and and so at the time. In one, thousand, nine, hundred eight. My mom and my mom had sold that business, she and my stepdad divorced and they sold their business, and so she was kind of at this place in her life where she was like okay. I'm ready to start over, I need. She was probably my age now, and it was like thinking I need to start over and figure out what life looks like for me. Now and I was saying I just I want to start something something I want to do anything and so my mom had some seed money and. Like I said I would do. You know so. I stayed up all night trying to find just hustling to find hair. Competitors are advertising in this trade magazine. So that's a potential a mailing list for so anything possible. I was willing to do so. Yeah so it was not like I had this pedigree of an MBA, and I'm going. Go start a business, and that's why I say I'm definitely. An accidental entrepreneur, but I've I've loved it. We'll story. It is very very cool. It seems like you had it in your blood like raped in the beginning. Though like it was something that you're meant to do. I, think so. I think without knowing that that's what it was like. I was just cleaning out. One of the things we've done in quarantine is cleaning out our garage and so all my memorabilia. That's where I found my card. Catalogue of here are the things you combine I'm like I always was. Experiencing entrepreneurship right in front of my is growing up but I never really knew it. In fact, my mom was in charge of all of the creative side of the business, and was the one in charge of new products, and out there trying to find out what creative women were doing next, and so when my mom would go on an rnd shopping trip and take all of us with her. We didn't realize what we were doing was watching her shopping trends and seeing what was out in fashion, and how we can bring that into the craft and creative industries, so when it just seemed like something natural, and now I'm trying to identify people go. Where do you find your trend Mic-? Just Watch I. Just look and so yeah. We were Kinda groomed without knowing that that's what was happening. So cool and so. You had your first business you? You began doing that twenty years ago. And then you landed to the happy planner, which has been a huge success and It's a it's a beautiful book. It's something that you want to. Hold in your hand, and just like carry with you all the time. It's so cute and fashionable. Where did that idea come from? And how? How did you of get to that point? Where like I want to be in this market of making planners? Happy like honestly we've had a lot of great products that of sold weller mckellen's pretty cool, but the happy planner is like it's so me. It's totally me so the the way we came up with. It was pretty much the same process that we did it with anything. As we and my sister is heavily involved in product about men in our company as well, but we watch in decide okay. scrapbooking was huge for a while, and so we were able to kind of ride that. That wave and we've kept coming out with products and line extensions and and then you kind of see that it was kind of starting to taper off. It was not as popular and the products weren't as weren't selling and going doing the having the sell through that they did before, so we're like okay. We need to know what creative women are doing next. which is what my mom did, so we would always be looking for what. What what do i WanNa do what is something that's interesting for me. and and then also kind of searching pinterest looking around water, creative women doing so for some reason on pinterest people were taking just regular planners from staples, or whatever and they were putting our scrapbooking products, stickers and things and making them cute but the scrapbooking don't really fit like they don't fit size-wise. They didn't fit if you're you know the stickers we were. Were to commemorate memories and things, and that's not necessarily the things that you need for planning so I kind of just you know, and they were boring to staples like office supply things. They have black brown different color bays. You know really great. You know what I think. Someone would would think the businessmen would like. And then there was like three designs that were like purple. Paisley or some ugly grandma color. You know I'm a woman, I. I don't want that, so we thought definitely we could do better in design. We could get them more affordable. We could create accessories that would go specifically for them, and then you could put in those accessories like things that are positive so that every single day when you're planning when you're having fun putting stickers out ever, there's this creative positive message that makes you happy that keeps you going, and so it was just a kind of another. Offshoot into what we normally do. What are creative women doing? And at this point? It was like people are busy, and they want to be creative, but they need that little bit of licensed to say it's okay when you're planning your schedule. You can kind of put a sticker downer. Says you can do it or just. Those little positive affirmations make a make a big difference. I love that so much were all about positive affirmations and There's something that I still love about having a planner in front of me like an organizational planner. Where where I. Can you know touch the pages and I can mark things off. It's so different than a calendar on Google you know and I've always I've i. still have a planner, so I love that, but I'm curious because you have built such a successful brand and obviously. You've separated yourself in so many ways by having something very unique You offer as something that's very I would say year to the millennial woman. But how how have you separated yourself with your branding? I'm just so curious about like where your sales come from utilizing social media, you have a huge social media following. So, how what kind of what was your? What was the method to your madness at that point when you started thinking ahead? Yeah, so at that point. We had we had a very successful company in the craft industry and up? Until that point, we had what I figured successful products. We didn't really have necessarily like brand. Following social media was just coming up, but you know there was something about the happy, and I think my own personal passion for the product helped in planning it. No Pun intended. because. I feel like we got to this place or like this product line. I just feel like we need to be able to have a brand. There's gotta be a message behind because the message of the product is so powerful and so really. What happened I mean there wasn't? A Master Plan I love this product so much. That I just started talking about it and sharing on social media back in the periscope days. You remember, periscope yeah. Remember. About it and I just said you know what I would anytime we would come up with something, or we had something new exciting happening in office. I'd like I'm just GONNA share. It's just going to be I wanted to our product and the brand to feel like like we were just friends sharing like. If I was you know to call you up and say Oh, my Gosh I'm so excited. We just got this prototype in, and here's what it looks like. Here's how I'm going to use it and every. Every new products came in. We previewed it on periscope did live Q. and A. is, and and that's before people really doing that and we were sharing the process and the product, and sharing my excitement, geeking out over stickers and a paper planner you know, so. It became I thought there was really no plan other than to share authentically, and that was really before, but you know everything authenticity be authentic was just such a overused catchphrase, but that's what it was because I didn't actually want to be the spokesperson. For our company, and because it's such a team effort, and so I'm not. I'm not maybe maybe I wouldn't had the idea for. Let's let's look into to paper planners, but I didn't create designs, and I not the artist, and I'm not the one who source the product and sold it in such a team so but. In order I felt so passionately that. Don't have relationships with companies. They don't have relationships with products, but they have relationships with people and brands, and if I could be that conduit. To Give A. Personality to our land our company then. I'm like all right. I'm willing to do because I was the one before it was like no, I don't really want to know I'm just I'm fine to not do it, but when I was sharing something, I was so passionate about the following just came. We did not say hey. We want to get to I. Think we're over six hundred thousand on instagram. We didn't have a plan for that. I mean eventually to grow. It takes you get to a certain point. It's like okay now. You have to plan, but we grew our numbers very very organically, and by just engaging with them. You know true engagement and it's. It's not even just the number in the plan, but it's like. Are you engaged? Do you care about your followers? Do you care about your customers and deal you know? Are you engaging that way? Are you doing it for the rise near following? Are you doing it for the sale? Are you doing? Are you doing it because this? Just feel so right to you know. Yeah while you're on that topic, too. Because so cool that you grew organically because. I mean it's such an easily marketable product, but also like how how do you stand out amongst your competitors are? There's other planner companies out there. So what's your differentiating factor with your product? So at the beginning? We were the only ones pretty much doing what we did, so we stood out really quick, and it's almost like I. Always say like it was like. Like when I had my first when I said WHO's very well behaved typical. I am such a good mom. And then my daughter came a second, and she is like great, but she's you know totally like wild spirit and I'm like oh my gosh. I need to to work at this little more. So when we did when all of a sudden you're like It's growing and you're thinking. Oh, my gosh is great. People are just listening, and then all of a sudden when you're onto something, people and other brands and other companies go. They're onto something I. Think I'm going to try that, too. And then what you were doing so authentically is being duplicated right so. So what we have always done I think and even back in the scrapbooking and paper. Crafting days was just advice. My mom gave me is just really don't worry too much about what other people are doing. Find out what you uniquely do. What is it that your company or your brand do what do you? How do you stand out and for US There's a lot of people who have high end stationary and people. People that are saying a professional and I want it to look like this or I. Don't like this about your as well. This is who we are. We are colorful and fun and were affordable. We have a disc bound system where you can change things in and out, and those are some things honestly and with the brand that will turn people off when you really claim like who you are. Some people are going to say. Well, I. Don't know but I. don't like that well, but this is who we are when you can really find that those are the things that just kind of narrowed down, and you nail it down so much that these are the things that make us unique, and so for us. We embraced all of that. That is who we are fun and colorful, positive and an interchangeable, and all these things about the product and about our messaging. That's what we focused on, and I think even especially going forward when it becomes harder and you. Maybe at this point, we're going like you see a slowing in not just gaining followers as fast when you get up high. And there's more people in the space so for us it's how can we find? What, we, what is it that we offer? That's unique whether it's the message product. And, you kind of have those pillars of our being authentic. Is it something that's different or are we just white noise in the space? Should we be making a change? We be pivoting. Right now do. Is there something we need to be doing to be more aware of the surroundings of the economy of this of society so You're constantly looking for you have to just be aware. Of who you are where you're going and not being paying too much attention to. The competitors and the people aside. It's really hard though it's hard to do because you find yourself looking. They're doing so good over there. Maybe I should change and go that way so knowing who you are is a huge part of that success for us. And, I love how you really made an emphasis on. Being okay with not being a good fit for everyone, and you know we talk about this even on social media. How you know people always give us questions on. You know my Gosh I I lost if I don't post for three days. I'll lose one hundred followers well if those people want on, follow you because you haven't posted three days. They're not your people. Like they were never people anyway, so I love that you have you have a focus and you understand your branch so well. The you know who you're catering to, and also you mentioned pivoting when you need to because. You know I think that people get so focused on the end goal, and if it's not if it doesn't turn out exactly how they anticipated that it would be, they give up right, so I think that's I. Love that so much and it kind of brings me to my next question on. The hardships entrepreneurship because I think that when people look from the outside, they see this beautiful brand that you've built a successful mom who's who's doing it all, but it takes so much work and behind the scenes that the people don't see. Can you walk us through some of those hardships that you faced in how you've kind of gotten through them? Oh yeah and I think. I'm so glad you brought that up because you especially on social media, people will see their, so they'll say. Where were you because I'm pretty active on my own, and then also I with the happy planner, but it like where were you? We Miss John there. I'm like you guys like if I would have shown. What I was doing for the past seven days, it was get up in the morning. Go to work. Stay there till seven o'clock have like meetings altay come home barely figure how I'm going to get the door dash before I wanna fall asleep, and then you know over it over and over again and I'm like it's not glamorous. It's hard There's a lot that goes into it. You know and you have to love it if you are somebody who has your own business or your own brand? You have to love it because it is not I mean I would say. Ninety, eight percent of it's not glamorous, but it's rewarding. You know it's something that you love, but you're GONNA have failures. You can't be afraid to work hard and fail. Because, you're GONNA. Do both of those all the time? And you know and learning from your from your failures for me. It's like you know we've had products that the ones that you've mentioned like happy planner that quadrupled the size of our business in the matter of two years But in the in between, and we had already had like a pretty successful company, and we were like well, but what you don't see, are all of the things where you come out with the product and you're like that's a dog. You Know Kate next. What do we? Can we learn from that? You know that's what you can't. You can't shy away from it, but nobody wants to see that nobody, but those are the lessons. Are you know what you're seeing? When when you see the happy planner is our success of you know Gosh over twenty we did that. It was fifteen years. I think into the our business before we hit that like Grand Slam, we'd had several. You know that was. This product was a triple. This one was a strikeout. This one was a base hit. And then you know, we never know we not. Even we're not even. Promise that we were going to have that big of a success that we just kept going and every time we did we learned something like Oh we didn't do. The packaging wasn't right or you know. Maybe we rent to too early into that trend, or maybe we didn't research it enough or maybe we learned something every time but I mean we've had. We've had product failures. We've had really difficult times in the economy I've been around here through September eleventh through the two thousand eight crash where the business was doing great, and then all of a sudden we've had were having to like have layoffs and figure out how to make the hard decisions. To keep your business healthy and around and surviving, and that's really hard. I mean that's something that right now we're going through. You know we have. Luckily we've got a great basin. We've had a very successful business, but this is a gut punch, and for a healthy business like ours. This has been really difficult and I can only imagine if you're struggling before this, but you just have to figure out you. It's almost like a business as almost like being a parent. You've got to make those tough decisions. Decisions you know that not everyone's going to understand. That's going to be hard. It's going to keep you up at night. and those those you don't see those on social media. No one's sharing like we had to really hard today and or have been meetings all day, and if they are, they're showing you the picture of themselves looking really cute, and you know here I am with my thing and it's. It's just not always like that victims hardly ever like that, so I think it's sometimes i. I've shared lots more real version especially on my own personal social media on instagram. Especially because I, think we do a disservice to. Everybody but to women's in general specifically where it's like if you're trying to be an inspiration and trying to share with other women, this is what if I can, we can all be here for each other. You, know in business, and this is how we can succeed. We are doing a disservice if we are just showing what our lives really never looked like And how how then do those? How'd you push through? How do you push through at the worst times for people that are listening that are entrepreneurs have launched their business or not seeing success right away. Like what have you learned to cut has kept you going. I think i. mean this sounds like something that my husband would go. No, if you can't measure it, you can't manage it because he's. My husband was our CFO CEO and. But for me, I, it's so much into an instinct. And then pushed through because I believe in my instinct very strongly. There's a thing like I feel like you know for us. We were very fortunate that the business that we started stayed healthy, and was viable forever, however I. Kind of look at our product launches in our product releases and different product types almost like many businesses, because there comes a time when you know this isn't working, you know there comes a time when you're like. We just need to let this keep going. We need to work at market. We need and you just you kind of. If you're really being honest with yourself, you know when it's like am I pushing too hard for something. That's not really making. Any headway or do I just need to keep working harder and I feel like You know if we ask ourselves how we done everything. HAVE WE EXHAUSTED EVERY OPTION? That's what I think. We need to kind of listeners, though because I just feel like if you are sitting here like. With a struggling business, let's say whether it's from the economy or just like I'm just not going anywhere It's hard because some people will say just keep going. Just keep going all the time. I don't think you should do that all the time. Sometimes you want maybe need to move onto. Something different doesn't mean you're not going to be. In business or start your own company, or but maybe this, isn't it? Maybe it is? Maybe you're just sitting there going. You know what this is going to be tough times, but I believe in this business i. know we have and we're going to keep going, so you kind of have to listen to that. You know you're got to say. Where are you? Are you? You know? Do I need to keep pushing through this, or is there something else that I need to be? Doing are exploring. It's such a weird time to because with everything going on I. Mean People are obviously doing less news less really to plan but I think there's still an opportunity and it's great that the product isn't just a manner planning out your daily activities that can also be used for intentional set goal setting in just writing down thoughts that you have journaling so I love that it's it's I town that regard Have you guys thought of ways to during this tough time? Kind of still sell your product in different ways or maybe thinking about different product lunches. Were you know what kind of has been brewing in the last few weeks, so it's like a perfect example of. Of evolving and pivoting right so like. Yes, when you're when we're looking at people that are planning your days just filled. My days were just like I couldn't even have the whole damn thinking. How tiny can I right because there's so much going on, but you know one of the other things we have in our product, minus positively journaling and guided journals, and then when you you know for us, it would be so tone deaf to be talking. Talking about we know you're busy. Let's just talk about busy busy busy schedule Hustle. Let's go because this is not the time for that, so we had to look at. What do we have in? You know in our offering. And what do we have What do we think is important or is there something else we can offer so for us? you know slowing down journaling 'cause for me. It's all about putting the pen to paper. I Love I love my. Technology and I. On my computer as well, but there's something to me about writing stuff down whether it's my schedule and prioritizing key efficient or whether it's like you know just journaling what I'm grateful for writing that down I did a whole like wellness like year in two thousand eighteen, where every single day for the entire year I journal. Like what am I feeling I thought it was going to be like more. Of a fitness thinks I like. My cholesterol is high, and I needed to lose weight, and I was going to do all these things I'm going to travel the stuff and what it became was. Oh my gosh, I'm realizing that I'm tagging my emotions now like when I would write things down the journaling became the biggest part for me is what I was feeling like I was really I felt very marginalized that meeting today, and I came home, and I think like I was going into hibernation. You know and I was angry and I was, but I was identifying my feelings. Why was I instead of just going like writing down my food log? You know it's like it wasn't helpful for me. I. Know How to eat healthy. But to realize that when I feel angry, I don't know what to do with those feelings and to eat them you know, or and I'm like an eye stuff them and I. Try and do anything in Canton. and that was like a realization for me, so we're kind of leaning into that and saying hey, right now when you're stressed or you're afraid or whatever it is that you're going through. What can you lean into? And how can you get in touch with your feelings whether it's do journaling or if you really do maybe you're a mom who is trying to work fulltime at home and also. Also home school your kids to the distance learning the. Maybe you need to be really efficient, so you need to you know. What is it that you need and listening to that? Do you need to be productive? Do you need to be kind of moving a little more inward, and then just writing it down and really getting out of your head and onto paper, so you can help process it. Yeah I need to start journaling. That is something that. I know he's for the whole year. Did you notice that it had a huge impact on? It changed the way I thought it totally and I'm the same way because I'm like I'm so famous for starting a journal. And then it's really good for like a couple weeks, and then it's empty, and I keep it and all these like you know journals that have a little bit done in the beginning, and then like I wish I could combine them all. And are they now? It's like so I just said I have never made like a year long commitment to myself I. Will I mean I will do anything for my kids. My husband, my family, my, you know the team of me me and my big ideas, but for me. It'd be like I'm always the first one to get shoved off the list and so I, said I need I was stressed because just like what you were saying. Our business was. Wildly successful that year, and the year before that but I was so stressed out. Because when you quadruple the size of your company, and you're trying to do the same things that you did before scaling it and learning how to do that so quickly is really stressful for a for a creative person who likes to do things like. As I'm inspired. And so. So dealing with that was huge, so all of these things that I saw which were gaining weight having high cholesterol, not sleeping at night, having hiring Zaidi I was thinking, it was because I'm out of shape or this and I didn't really realize accepted the journaling. which that's not what I started to do. That it was more than just that and so this journaling process just gave me. Such clarity and insight into my own feelings that I had no idea and I don't think if I if I just tried to do that at the very beginning for just a little bit I, don't think I would have. Gotten as deep because like doing it every single year someday the destroy today sucked. He knows the worst day ever and I didn't know how to see it through, but then as I got used to journaling just as an exercise every day. I learned to go. You know to just kind of. I guess like look a little deeper. Really. Shed light on stuff that I had no idea I was looking for. I feel like now. I'M GONNA. Go buy one of your journals because I'm so inspired by that by just what you said and I think that I'm someone that just keeps everything in my head and I talked to myself all day every day just. All the things that have to do all the things that should you know that are behind me? That I should have done yesterday it's that's great. I love that with you. You know you don't realize that when you're not like kind of emptying out. It's like for me I was not able to. I was not able to like think of I was kind of creatively blocked, and then I was like even motion. Lee blocked and they just didn't realize because I'm the same. I am an over thinker. I like I process everything and I just I kinda hold onto it and I get very wrapped up in my own head, and so it was just almost like an emptying of it and helps me sleep. Helped me do all that stuff, so my guys. I think you'll love it. Okay. I'm sold. journaling. Borsch, now let's talk a little bit about living intentionally, which is very much related to what we're talking about now, bite. What does it mean for you to live intentionally? And how can people cultivate a more meaningful life? Because obviously you found your passion, you work really hard at you. Know keeping your mind rate, and it seems like you're a very self, reflective person, but how how have you gotten there? I think. I've always been somebody who really likes. Growing looking inside I ask a Lotta questions of myself and. Other people like I. Try and tell my husband like I'm not really trying to psychoanalyze you. Even I would love to just get into everybody's head, but I think that there's so much we can learn. And one of the things that I have learned just by trying to grow as a person and being teachable. Has Been You. Know there's nobody in the world that is going to take charge of my life, my happiness, the things that I want that me. Matt what happens around me it doesn't you know we can all we can all be complaining about what's happening in the world with your job with your relationship, but when it really comes down to it, you're the one that's responsible for what it is. You want in your life and how happy you are. And so for me, it started with number one. I needed to. Learn how to love myself because I didn't love and accept yourself believe you're worthy of all those things, and then once you believe that those things started kind of coming into my life and a realize it's like you know. That was something that I had to really focus on. I had to work on with myself I am. We're a project, so if you go out there, and you really want a job, or you really want to start a business, or you want a relationship. You have to almost I think. Go for the life that you want with that same passion and I mean for me. It's just been about really starting to identify. What is it that you want? What is it that makes you happy? And how do you need to get that? I think that's why I'm a planner at heart, because living intentionally as really planning, you're trying to like you have to identify something first and then figure out how you're going to get it right, so it's like for me. Identifying. What makes me happy? What the name of our podcast plan? Happy Life at the Tagline for our company. Or for the for the happy planner, because really feel like you know if if for me, I need to identify what it is, that makes me happy right, and so I'm not somebody who is an Adrenalin Junkie I'm not someone who needs a lot of activity in my life, I need I need serenity a need. Calm I need a place to be creative I want to go travel I want to be with my family so when I. Start to really identify Granular Li, like what it is, that makes me happy and what I want I can easily say you know okay well. Then I am intentionally going to make the choices that get me closer to those things that I want and. It's really a responsibility. You know it's really taking responsibility for For the actions that we take and you know and I think it's empowering I actually feel like instead of going like Oh. My Gosh I'm responsible for all of these things in my life and no one's going to do about me that makes me. I think it just gives it gives me the power back to say you know. Stuff can happen all around me. Crap can just be going on like everywhere and internally I can live intentionally with what makes me happy, which what? And I can be. Responsible for especially this stuff that's going on in my head. You know so setting intentions of you know whether it's daily whether it's setting an intention for a year or whenever you're feeling like you need a little more clarity into. What am I working for I think it's a really powerful thing to do and I know sometimes when things get more popularity. They gained that whole like people in Oh. Yeah, okay. Setting intentions are doing all this, and it sounds a little Wu, and all that and I'm like it, but it really really makes a difference in how we live our lives, and the decisions that we make yeah, and it's all it all goes back to taking accountability, right and totally nine I. always talk about this on the podcast where a lot of people struggle with that I. Think they kind of have this. Poor me, mentality or you know I could never accomplish that I'm not ex- enough. I'm not educated. Enough I'm not. You know fast enough smart enough pretty enough whatever it is, and I just do I. Hope that if pe- when people listen to this episode, they really if they take anything from it. I really hope that they listen to what you just said. Because it's so powerful, that's such a like. I can't I've had a lot of things. People will ask me like well. Of course, it's easy for you to be happy because where you are today, you know and I said, but but here's what you don't understand is that? The reason I'm happy is not because I have all the things that I have the reason I have all the things that I have is because a happy positive person who believes that I have. that. What happens in my life is a result of you know of the way that I go about it and what I believe I deserve and how and then I can have those things I'm happy. And I'm positive period. Doesn't necessarily. Happy happy I just mean like I'm going to be content and positive and optimistic in my life. No matter what is going on and I have lived through a lot of things I've had like I said I shared with you. Guys had some traumatic things in my childhood that have happened I was had a child eighteen I had a lot of money issues. I'm growing up. I was in an abusive relationship with physically and mentally, and there's a have been drug abuse them I mean lots of things that I've had to deal with and. I could very easily any of those instances been. Why did this happen to me? I could never start a business because I don't have a college education and they don't have any money, and they don't have this and you know. What will people think of me and you know a? Growing and believing that you can do something, no matter what like having that resilience and having that. Like I'm just going to figure it out like I said I. It pretty much anything now I'm probably going to be more of a of a jack-of-all-trades master of none but that's okay. That's who I am, and that's really has gotten me where I'm at, but yeah. I just I think if anything I totally agree with you. If I share anything, it would be that no matter what your circumstances are in life. I think optimism and. And believing that no matter what happens to you, you will get through this, and you make something of yourself, and you can get the things that you want in life If you know if you're working, you work hard. You have to be willing to work hard. You have to be teachable if to learn to be confident, but all those things are things you can control. And it doesn't really matter what your circumstances are. So that would be something I mean. Yes. I love the product. Yes, I love our brand. Yes, I love all these other things, but that's just something that I think everyone can take with them throughout their lives. Such great life advice, and it's so true I feel like there's been looking back and reflecting on my own experiences to and the hardships that you know everyone has different forms of adversity, but how you respond and react to that is I think all the difference and I think it was a murray furlough that said everything is figure out. That just. When you said that because it's true like if you have that drive and that hustle enough to do what it is that you WanNa, do you can figure that all out and I think Alex also reiterated several times. There's this concept of just start now. Figure everything else out along the way as you go. Otherwise, you're never gonNA start. You're never going to achieve those goals but in terms of goal, setting and just organizational tips. I mean I feel like the ideal buyer of the happy planner is a very organized individual, or maybe they're aspiring to be more organized. So what are some good organizational tips just in general that people can start practicing and then apply to the happy planner. And I am not a naturally organized person. At like what you see back there on this video that we're recording over is not what it normally looks like I'm a creative person so I'm very like. Just kind of scattered and I will follow an idea like if I have an idea, I'm like I'm down that rabbit hole and. There's a chaos and mastic usually follows so being organized and using happy planner and using organizational tools is actually been essential for me to be like a productive society member of society or running a business, so one of my favorite tools and I think we kind of alluded to this a little earlier was getting things out of your head in getting him down I use a master What I call him Master Action Item List, so it doesn't matter if like you are thinking of I've gotTa. GotTa do cupcakes the Kids School I've got empty. The dishwasher I have a huge project that I'm working on. That's do every little thing. Take space up in your head and It doesn't really you know you're not really. They all have the same weight, so you're thinking constantly of the Dishwasher, the cupcakes and all of these things and you don't have the space to really think about Give yourself like. Hey, now. I'm really focusing on the project because there's so much stuff spinning in your head. And, so I think David Allen I think is his name he said you're. You're headed for having ideas, not storing them so like for me. It's like Oh, my gosh, that is so perfect so I take and had this one massive list actually I have to, but it's ones home in one's work, but usually for most people one will do and. If everything that comes out of my head is something that I have to do if it's an action item. I put it on my list and then I work from that list. Would plan my weeks when I plan my days, so I look at Monday and I think okay. I've got five meetings not lot. Stuff's going to be coming off that to do list, but on Tuesday I have one meeting in the morning and I had the whole day that I. have so I'll go off of my master list and then start working from there. I'M NOT GONNA forget my tasks that way. It's not going to be like oh shoot cupcake sting it. You have your your things that have due dates and everything so when I'm working from it I don't have fifteen sticky notes everywhere and a piece of paper that I wrote over there. That I got lost cause. I left it in my car and you're constantly then figuring out. How do I remember where it was that thing so keeping everything kind of in one place has been a big tip for me. the second organizational tip that I use I plan every Sunday I plan my week out every Sunday so or whatever the day before the start of week.' In for me. Mondays the start, so I sit down I. Take a look at what are all of the to the must do's appointments. The the deadlines that have to happen that week and get all those things in there and I. I plan everything out from date night with my husband every week. we're putting that in their first wins the time that I need one of my GonNa. Go exercise. When am I going to those put in appointments, and then I start to fill in again with things from that master to do. If I don't do that, then you know, there's things that come up and they're just time. Thief's and they come in to take in all of a sudden. You look and you've spent. Monday and you're thinking I've done nothing you know. It could be a week and you're going like shoot. There's nothing off my list. conversely you can take a look at that, and if you've been really productive, there've been times. I had no idea I could get that much done. So those are two tips for me to stay on and just to contend me. Being organized means being productive, because if I'm not productive, my stuff's all over the place. I get very easily overwhelmed, and that is not a good place for me to be. I was GONNA ask as well with with your master. Master list you add everything from like emptying the dishwasher doing laundry like every task so usually I have like if those are ongoing I will have just started doing this, which helped a lot, but all I kind of assign like if something that occurs every week for me I have a list. That's basically recurring tasks, so if you're if it's a cleaning thing, it's like an you know you've got changes sheets. You know the bathrooms or whatever I've got empty Roomba. because. Just, all those little things that are like take the trash out. Those are of things that I put off to the side which are more recurring tasks. And then when I sit down. Unday, I think you know empty room by the today's the in the evenings and do my meal planning here and those things happen all the time. The the Master List for me is you know the things that are their projects or their like like for me for my work one. It's like every time like I need to talk to him about this Call up this person and make sure I return this thing and check out on. All of the let's marketing meetings scheduled out. Make sure to reach out and so then I can cross them off. On Cross them off. And then when they're done, they're done, and of course you know once it gets to about halfway marked off at create a new list because it's prettier. And I like doing that, but yeah, the reoccurred things I keep separately. Of It, so we're GONNA. Get this all in. Your home about really what you're saying is it comes down to time management skills right, and yes, you know like you said there are some days ago by and I'm like. How did I just spent two hours scrolling through instagram? Checking emails bearing bearing myself in emails that really don't I don't need to get back to these people right away and you self reflect and go like that I see I'm busy, but to hours of that time was wasted. Time management is huge, and that was another thing that I uncovered in my memorabilia box that said think I was in like fourth grade and the teacher says like Stephanie needs to learn time management. Because it is true, because I do the same thing and I feel like there's so many times when people say I just don't have enough time and I'm thinking i. just spent four hours binge-watching. Whatever I. We. Do have the time and that's okay. If you're going, you know what I'm going to. It's going to be a binge party like I am going to be watching and It's fine but I think we need to be aware like you don't WanNa miss out on the things that you either want to be doing our need to be doing because you're not managing your time well and like I said it's a constant struggle. This is going to be something that I'm GonNa be. Be doing for my whole life. Because you know because I'm just not naturally inclined to be that way even, but it's a habit you know, and it's easier for me now, but managing your time well and scheduling it out is is a habit that we form you know, and it's just like it just becomes easier and then yeah, you find him. There's nothing to me like when I look at a list I'm like. Oh, my gosh look! How productive I was this week! That is such a good feeling when you even when you finish the day, and you're like man I was on point today like I knocked this off the list and I. Did this and you just feel good? There's just this feeling it brings. There's something about they say like an actual like I don't know what gets release, dopamine, or whatever that when you cross things off your list. That, yes, go. It is what? What are some other resources that you? You've enjoyed yourself or that? You would recommend to listeners in terms of time, management or building, good habits, organizational tools and practices. I think that like to meet. Okay decluttering. Making sure that you like you don't have because again. The more clutter at the worst and I know they say you know a messy desk or whatever they say, but the MESSI dozen. Beans or whatever and it is, but it's probably one who's just driving themselves crazy 'cause they can't find anything so developing somewhat of. Of A protocol for how you're GONNA. Plan your weeks and then also. One of the things I don't know if it's not really a resource, but it's something that I learned that. I kind of tend to first thing in the morning. I want to like answer all like you're saying I. Want to answer all my emails, and then of course I go down. Somebody's asking you know unsubscribe to all these things now and then I started subscribing, and then I go down, and so somebody told me to block off your days and at the beginning. Do the most important thing for you that you need to. To get done in the morning or whenever it is that you work I work best in the morning and freshest van, and then about three o'clock, I'm looking for anything else. I'm looking for something to snack on or any distraction and it, but some people are not also if you're like going, this is when I do my best work. Then make sure you can identify those times because you're gonNA. Find that you have. You're going to get more done. You'RE GONNA feel more efficient more. More productive and I think that's going to help I. Definitely, figure think that if you can figure out how technology and productivity work for you. I am kind of a hybrid between outlook and all of the technology that we can't. We have that really does keep us I've got when I have meetings. All my stuff is stored. I, don't WanNa. Right down the zoom. Call Identification Number and the password, and all these things you know, that's all stored in my outlook and I have a really good relationship between paper planning and my tech, you know. And then but I have a process every time I have like a nice system. I think I think that works I've been I've used a lot of productivity tools into honest with you. Nothing's really kept me more productive than just keeping it simple and planning things out and getting stuff done I mean it. It starts off great, but then it's just something else for me to. Keep track of so having something just right in my face whether it's my outlook, calendar or or my paper planner I just like I, said I've tried I've tried them all I've tried. And I know they were really well for some people, but for me it's just all about keeping it really simple and just getting stuff done. Yeah, and you know what I love the realness because we get questions, sometimes of like. How do you have a business and you work fulltime in your mind like? How do you do all the things? And I always kind of self reflect in its and I always think you know. You make time for what's important to you. That's the bottom line. We all have twenty four hours a day. I think that that hustle mentality isn't always helpful and isn't always positive, but at the same time if you have something that you want to accomplish. You just have to do it. You have to figure it out and do it. That's the bottom line. So Yeah? I love what you said on that. You know what I'd like to ask you Stephanie. If there's some sort of book or podcast or resource that you'd recommend for our followers, I don't know if you have any in mind that something that is is really impacted you in some way. Yes, so two different two different things so a book that basically just changed my life completely were was the gifts of imperfection by Bernard Brown. And it was one of those things where I just realized I don't have to be perfect I'm worthy of just the way I am, and that just really kind of just her whole. I love her so much that book. When I started to believe those things about myself, things change. They think changed in my life. They changed in my business That's why I think that no matter what you're looking at doing that. Inner work is I. Don't don't try and like. Get the promotion or getting the relationship, because you think that's GonNa make you more successful or happier, or whatever, because if you're not okay with that first step I it's all going to be empty. You know you're going to get the promotion, but it's not gonNA. Feel as great as you thought it was. Because you're. There's there's that whole in there that you're trying to fill so. That personally was amazing for me and then I love how I built this by Cairo's and. The podcast and for business. That's something that I listened to and I just. If, you're ever wanting to start a business and you think well I don't fit the typical either entrepreneur or business owner, or whatever I don't fit that mold listen to those stories there from every walk of life and every kind of story. It's so empowering to listen to them, but it's also really interesting to see how some of those people dealt with you know the setbacks, and how they how they innovated, and how they funded their businesses, and it's really interesting, and so, and they've covered just about like every aspect of business so I love those, too. Such third-rate episode actually heard how I built. This I've never listened to it, but I've heard it is great good, so that'll be one that'll that'll be added to my podcast list. podcasts our life right now in quarantine.

Everything that we're about to talk about some super excited cool. I'm so excited to be talking to you. Guys for those who don't know. Tell us a little bit about your health. I'm Stephanie. Fleming and I'm a creative entrepreneur. I actually call myself like an accidental entrepreneur. I started my business me and my big ideas with my mom twenty actually over twenty years ago started in my garage with an idea of just one idea for making stickers for the scrapbooking industry at that time and. And really just kind of wanted to do it too. I needed a creative outlet. Yes, but I needed to pay the bills like I. was you know a young mom and struggling to make ends meet, and just really wanting to like. Go out there and I would do anything because I you know I wanted a better life for myself, and for my kids and and so I was definitely you're. You're? The definition of a hustler like I was like I have no money, but I will put in the sweat equity so. We been hustling with me and my big ideas for. Over twenty years now, and we've created everything from paper stickers and now planner, so planners is our latest the happy planners, our latest product line and It's just been such a a wonderful thing for us to get into because we get to share a love for creativity for positively, and that's been kind of where I have fallen in the last probably five or six years which. Not only being an entrepreneur in a business person, but also being able to be the spokesperson for our product and our brand, and that's something that I've been totally passionate about. It's amazing. I'm curious. So, what did you do before you started your business? Were you a stay at home? Mom? Did you have have a job, so I was? I was pregnant when I was eighteen. Not Married had had a baby, and when immediately from high school to I need to find some way to take care of my son and I did in home daycare for eight years, and was daycare provider for six kids usually at one time and it was you know it's honest work? It's hard work. It's eleven hour days for you know for eight years and you know all I to do is be a good mom, and and so I didn't have a college education. I grew up in the craft industry though my. My parents had a manufacturing and distributing business so I grew up from picking orders in the warehouse. To you know watching my parents who are entrepreneurs basically navigate the craft industry and come along with them to trade shows and things like that so I always had that creative bug, and and even as an entrepreneur as a kid I was making little catalog, so you can buy these cards here, my designs and so, but then life hits, and then you have to go out, and you know and do the best you can and and so at the time. In one, thousand, nine, hundred eight. My mom and my mom had sold that business, she and my stepdad divorced and they sold their business, and so she was kind of at this place in her life where she was like okay. I'm ready to start over, I need. She was probably my age now, and it was like thinking I need to start over and figure out what life looks like for me. Now and I was saying I just I want to start something something I want to do anything and so my mom had some seed money and. Like I said I would do. You know so. I stayed up all night trying to find just hustling to find hair. Competitors are advertising in this trade magazine. So that's a potential a mailing list for so anything possible. I was willing to do so. Yeah so it was not like I had this pedigree of an MBA, and I'm going. Go start a business, and that's why I say I'm definitely. An accidental entrepreneur, but I've I've loved it. We'll story. It is very very cool. It seems like you had it in your blood like raped in the beginning. Though like it was something that you're meant to do. I, think so. I think without knowing that that's what it was like. I was just cleaning out. One of the things we've done in quarantine is cleaning out our garage and so all my memorabilia. That's where I found my card. Catalogue of here are the things you combine I'm like I always was. Experiencing entrepreneurship right in front of my is growing up but I never really knew it. In fact, my mom was in charge of all of the creative side of the business, and was the one in charge of new products, and out there trying to find out what creative women were doing next, and so when my mom would go on an rnd shopping trip and take all of us with her. We didn't realize what we were doing was watching her shopping trends and seeing what was out in fashion, and how we can bring that into the craft and creative industries, so when it just seemed like something natural, and now I'm trying to identify people go. Where do you find your trend Mic-? Just Watch I. Just look and so yeah. We were Kinda groomed without knowing that that's what was happening.

Emotions and Fear Show Us What We Are Truly Capable Of
"My guest today is somebody. Some of you might follow regularly Aubrey Marcus. He's a modern day philosopher. He's the author of the bestseller own the day in an entrepreneur of the wellness company on it. You might think of Aubrey as a bio hacker whose general approach is total human optimization. But we catch up with him. Discover what optimization looks like during a pandemic. And what we learn is practices and perspectives to simply accept what's happening day by day. Welcome Aubrey. How are you? Doing well, thank you good to talk to you wonderful to talk to you, I think last we saw each other was many years ago. Either on a mountain top or a boat. It was at the mountain. Actually yeah, that was the first time and I remember. That was the first time I tried to music. which is great, but I think the recent improvements to the s have been really welcomed. I love everything that you guys have done with that I think you so much. It's super appreciated. So. Let's dive into your work and what you've been working on recently, but somebody who spend their life thinking about how to optimize every day and make the most from every day. How do you think about making the most from a day? That's during pandemic or a riot? Well, it's interesting. I think you have to be aware. I mean awareness is really the key, and I think you have to be aware of any pressure that's coming from the collective and a lot of times. We think of ourselves as isolated, but we're really not were interconnected beings, and we really feel what's. What's going on so I think it's just having awareness that we're going to be sensitive to everything that's happening and that sensitivity might cause us to actually wall off even more and become less sensitive, just because it's a bit overwhelming, and all of this is fine. There's no judgment any action, or we might really engage with it and just feel it all or some combination of both and I've certainly experienced all of that. We at some points I just WanNa turn everything off and just unplug from everything that's happening at large and then other times. I WanNa Watch, everything and. And talk to everybody and get out there in the mix and see what's happening out there in the world, and really feel it, but other than that. I think it's really for me. I'm writing my new book, so that's kind of forced isolation. anyways, you can't really do a lot when you're dedicated to writing under a deadline, so it hasn't been too different lifestyle for me. Other than just managing what's happening in the collective is you support other people to manage? What's going on right now? I think this is a time to really lean into the personal practices, so whatever those. Those things are that are the best for you. I have a host of them. I'm sure a lot of the listeners do as well the muse being one of them, but there's so many other words like breath work for example at spent a good amount of time with Wim Hof and the combination of the breath in the cold is a great way to shift state. GET CLARITY, move emotions so I. think that's been really valuable. I'm a big proponent of ecstatic dance, and for those of you who don't understand what ecstatic dance is. It's not dancing on ecstasy. It's actually. Moving your body in direct superfluity with the music, so that it's collapsing the mind and creating this kind of trance state where you're just moving without thought without self judgment, and that will actually put you into that translates really ancient practice at a lot of different traditional have engaged in are these ceremonial dances, and really you can do it by yourself for there's ecstatic dances that are hosted around the country to participate in dance I would. Would go to something in Toronto called the move. Where Hopley one hundred people would get together and dance for about a two hour period over this amazing arc of music, so it start off slow, and it would come to this ecstatic he crescendo, and then soothe you back down again. It was incredible to just let everything go and just dance, and just be yourself in the moment. There's no gentleman from anybody. Everybody's doing their own thing. And with the pandemic, obviously, that became very impossible. You don't want one hundred people in a crowded studio and so now been dancing with my four year old. Exactly! Living Room. Let's put it on no judgment. Go Wild have fun. He gets on. The trampoline goes crazy and we just do it. That's the beauty of being a kid. Is You just move and express freely without really worrying about what you look like? I think dancing is one of those things that we have so much judgment attached to how we move. It's like a performance even when we're dancing by herself. So really kind of just getting rid of that whole construct, and allowing yourself to move again, so much of our motion and everything is really stored semantically in the body as a great book called. Called the body keeps the score really makes that case brilliantly, but it's allowing yourself to move and shake just like a dog runs into the screen doors. Something like the first thing they do, is they? Shake it off well. We don't really shake it off very well. We have a lot of things that disturb in trouble our mind, but were not really moving it through our body. An effective way so dancing is absolutely one of my favorite ways to do that. Dancing and breathing. I mean those are really absolutely my go-to Stephanie

"I'm a Feminist But..." Social Distance Dancing and Zoom
"I'm a feminist Bart today for the first time. I went into a dance studio in a socially distance way from my dance. Instructor, Melissa Bravo, so for those don't know. My lockdown project was dance lessons. Because I wanted to make meaning of the time and I also wanted to make a faster and I thought you know what dirty dancing montage makes the time go really fast. Just go well. They've done a bit of this and a bit of this and a bit of this and then three months passed. So I thought I would learn to dance for surveys INS, and so I hired a dance Tacoma. Pravo who's very close to me, we'd zoom together for four months now Danzig every single day. And today for the first time we went into a studio, as was legally allowed, stood far from each other, and we just staring at each other, because we've seen more of each other in lockdown, any other human being, but not in the flesh, and already like met her once before this all happened, so we were just staring at each other for ages going. It's really you. It's really it's like. And it was we were seeing a video game avatar come to live, and then she looked and she went. On my God. This room is so big. And I'm used to seeing you on the little screen. She said this room is so big unique, really small in here and I thought Oh my God. This room is making me look thin amazing. Attorney. was.

The coronavirus is mutating, making it harder to stop the spread
"Hey. So, as Jim Garrity points out a study released last month by the scripts that research institute concluded that the strains of the virus spreading so quickly in Europe in the U. S have a mutated spike protein that makes him about 10 times as infectious as the strain initially identified Asia So now you're comparing apples to oranges. When you say why isn't this thing spreading in Hong Kong or Taiwan, same way that it sprayed in the United States or Europe? The name exactly the same virus. As it turns out, it seems like us is having a tougher time controlling the spread of Corona virus in Asian countries didn't winter and early spring. That's partially because this version of the virus is tougher to stop them spreading. More and more, researchers suggest, says Jim Garrity are contending that Sarah's cover to cover 19 is Airboard, meaning it is not merely being dispersed by the bodily fluids of those who have it, but also floating about in aerosolized form. It's also possible. The virus is not truly Arisa wise, but it's floating in tiny droplets so light and small, they can easily be carried at long distances by air currents. European Center for Disease Prevention and the World Health Organization are now taking the heiress allies possibility seriously, and with good reason and Arisa laws virus would mean most of our current pandemic control policies, like remaining 16 parts are not enough by themselves to prevent contraction of virus. Is Jim Garrity says the scale and complexity of the problem should not be understated. The country enacted unprecedented sweeping lockdowns. They kept most Americans at home at great cost to the economy. The lock down slow the spread. They didn't stop it. Venting more infections is not just a matter of convincing the president to wear a mask consistently or shutting down beaches or subways or requiring quarantines for those who travel between states. At every level of government. The response to the virus has met with mixed success. But it's important to recognise no one is ignoring any simple or easy solutions because the solutions do not exist. That one thing that's true is that the death rate has been dropping fairly dramatically. The CDC currently estimates the death rate between 10.6 point 7% about seven times deadly is the flu. A new study puts between 0.5 point eight. If there are lot of asymptomatic are unconfirmed cases, that means it could be a point to. But as I say, even a point to fatality rate with half of the American population adopting virus Would mean a lot of dead people. So we will see whether there is a big spike here. Maybe not. But the bottom line is that everybody was sort of counting on a vaccine to save us. That is not a strategy either. The fact is that if we rush out of vaccine and it's no good, it's no good. It's also possible that vaccine that is truly effective and mass produced and mass adopted won't happen until mid time next year, even the most optimistic sin areas. So the notion that you're just gonna be able to sort of sit around and wait for good things to happen. Just stay at home and wait for good things to happen. That's not true, either. The reason I'm pointing all of this out is because this is all hard stuff. This is all hard stuff. And looking right now. At a list from World Honors, which compiles data from Johns Hopkins University about covered 19 deaths. And I'm gonna give you the states that have the highest rate of deaths for one million population right now. Okay, This is the list. New Jersey. New York, Connecticut, Massachusetts, Rhode Island District of Columbia, Louisiana, Michigan, Illinois. Then Maryland, Pennsylvania, Delaware, Mississippi. Indiana, Arizona, Colorado, Georgia, New Hampshire, Minnesota, New Mexico, Ohio, Alabama, Iowa, Virginia, Florida, Florida is all the way down there. California is next unless bed with Florida, South Carolina, Nevada, California. What one thing that you will notice if you're going to talk about strategies that worked 123456789 of top nine states in terms of death per 1,000,000 population are all Democratic governor. Nearly all of them were pretty locked in In New Jersey. New York, Connecticut Master's Sword Island, D C. Louisiana, Michigan. These were all very pro locked in states. Maryland is a Republican governed state. Larry Hogan is the governor over there. And he's been widely praised for his response to the virus. We've had him on the radio show he was for a lock down his state ranks about 10 to 15 slot above Florida in terms of the number of deaths per 1,000,000. Ohio has a higher death per 1,000,000 stat in Florida. It may not stay that way. But the notion that anyone has figured out how to solve this thing is just badly gloomy, like there is no evidence that anyone has come up with the silver bullet on how to deal with covered

"stephanie" Discussed on Monocle 24: Meet the Writers
"Stephanie Scott Welcome to meet the writers. Hydrogen thank you so much for having me. It's it's lovely to speech I'm sorry. It's not in person. I just need to stop by saying I loved this book, and it was the perfect kind of lockdown distraction, a wonderful sort of through under love story that just just kept me absolutely engaged to thank you for that all. Thank you, thank you so much. That's wonderful to hear and I glad you enjoyed. The multi genre aspects I was very attached to them when drafting. Yeah, let's let's start at the beginning. Tell me about your own background I. Well, I am half Indian half. British and my family from Singapore we off the generation Singapore, and so that's where you grew up. And that's yes. I was born in. Singapore and I grew up. That and my family still live there now and. It was actually I think my family experiences from both the British and the Asian sides in the Second World War and their experiences with Japan and the Japanese that led me to you. Begin to think that I could perhaps. Write this novel. In that during the Second World War, my Asian family were. In malaria when the Japanese invaded on that by schools, and took the peninsula and Singapore, and they had to hide in the rubber plantations, and my Indian Singapore. Singaporean grandma actually the friend did a Japanese soldier, and taught him English and my grandfather Rochat guide to learn Japanese because you couldn't walk onto the occupation unless you spoke Japanese so both my Asian grandparents learned, and then my English Grand Parent Grandfather for the Japanese in Burma and we've lost lost a great uncle to the death railway in Thailand as well and so they had very different experiences, but growing up in Singapore. Particularly, there is A. Those assassination with Japan that has shifted very much. Since the ocupation and Japanese culture is extremely popular and. Present that are actually we have Japanese supermarkets and. allotted influences and the more I spoke to Japanese friends of mine. Actually, the more I saw similarities between never not bringing and and my licensing. And do you speak Japanese? I don't speak it badly. I have Japanese go children and I can communicate with them, but the seven year old has surpassed me now and seen the four year old will too, and then my humiliation will be complete But but I am interested I am very interested in in S -nology, and and and in the Japanese language. I mean to say linguistically. My Romance languages stronger, but I still I still very interested in the study of Japanese Nara session. What's written characters that have? Multiple Meanings and tremendous resonance that I explore the novel I. I thought it was impossible to. Ignore that and actually I didn't want to. We'll suggested to me by someone that I just using Schwartz but. I, I! Really didn't want to. There are for example the word landscaping in Japanese means, something quite different. I mean I could have just said landscape in English, but in Japanese
"stephanie" Discussed on Modern Ruhles with Stephanie Ruhle
"And you didn't go out last night. Celebrating with your friends for life. Haven't had all the big events in the spring break and the parties and the events in the meetings. And the congratulations. Chances are even home with your family or maybe not even ab been alone. I know this I know you deserve so much more. You worked so hard for this date but there's also something else that's missing today. All the pressure the pressure for greatness the hyper competitive program. That says what you're doing next and where you are and and all the fun facts about your internship or your job and your parents ability to boast about how you are going to be the next mark Zuckerberg because of this internship that you've got those things are really good on paper and this idea that you are the next big thing but the reality of that his overwhelming and most likely you're not going to achieve that thing and falling short is a pretty awful feeling and the last thing you need to feel awful. You deserve to feel really good and really loved because you are right now. The world is completely different from where it even was a few months ago. I remember when I got out of school. Those first few years of work. I was constantly on a quest to figure out. Where's my niche? How can I figure out a way for them to need me? What can I solve and unfortunately I kept coming up short that I couldn't solve anything because at the time it seemed that those above me at all figured out so I was just searching for a reason for them to have me sticking around to be honest but now everything has changed. Everything has changed the people above you and around you even the smartest the most successful. They've never faced something like this. Nobody has figured out. And that means there's opportunity there's opportunity to find those solutions because we don't have the answers. This is the time to figure out what do people need. And what can you do and maybe you can be the one to find that solution and it doesn't have to be something great. It just has to be something good because right now we all need something good and one thing that has happened is that need has equalised us just a few months ago. We often thought who do. I know that's the most powerful the most connected. How do I get my kid that opportunity somebody like me? My phone would be ringing off the hook with people whose kids are at the best schools. Want to do the best thing because they deserve the best opportunity now. Those opportunities have flown out the window. But the window isn't shot. You've just got to find a way through it. This is a chance for you to pick up the phone and make a cold call and write an email and share your idea with somebody who is in a position of power because guess what they need ideas. Everyone needs help. This is a time where you might not be shut out because you don't go to a certain school or you're from a certain place right now. We've realized that we're all not so different. We've talked about these divide so much over the last few years but the truth is in a time of crisis we realize rogers trying to take care of our families raw looking for the same thing. We all want to be socially free physically safe financially secure and at a time like this. We're realizing a lot of those preconceived notions we had about other people even our own families or our oldest friends who we didn't talk to anymore because the way they voted or the way they look to the way they thought with kind of push those things aside and thought more about who we care about and how we feel and even though. You're not sitting at a graduation ceremony with your dear family in the audience. Cheering you on right now. I would bet there's more people thinking about you and caring about you then ever before I've been on more zoom calls and gotten more emails with my oldest friends. I haven't spoken to in years in the last two months. I'm embarrassed to say neighbors that I barely knew just a few months ago. In some instances have been the most important people in my life even their wave or their gesture or them saying hello something we stopped doing in our super connected world where we had our heads in our phones. And we're just thinking about connecting connecting connecting but we disconnected to community. We forgot about the machine that makes the world work because when the machine stopped working we realized all the people and the functions that are in it and maybe we realized the importance of gratitude. And so I am grateful for everyone who brought me here to you today. I'm grateful for this opportunity and I want you all to know that you have a great opportunity ahead of you because we need a new game. We need a new solution. We can't have the people on top. Just climb higher and higher and the people down below lose their footing even more. We need good things to happen. We don't have to hold up in a super swank office with the greatest minds in industry. We just need good people to work together to care about one another and think of solutions. And here's the thing doing something. Good just something simple and basic if you did one every day and you piled those days up. That is a life of greatness. If the goal was to try to wake up happy and maybe go to bed even happier and do something for someone else. Something for someone who maybe isn't going to help you someone who can't advance your career. Because I think we misunderstood what networking opportunities were over the last few years your network isn't just someone who can get you that next great job because maybe that next great job won't exist. Your network is to care about others and hopefully have others care about you because I can tell you at a time when we're so worried about the people we love the most I think about this idea. Survival of the fittest. I don't WanNa be part of that. I don't WanNa win alone and I don't WanNa lose alone because even when you win alone you're all by yourself and being alone over. The last few months has reminded me how great it is to have a family and a community. Even if you don't agree with them on everything even if you don't like what they look or how they talk or what they say they care and I'd say when I lose it's even more because losing alone is pretty awful but when you lose on a team and someone else on that team picks you up helps you shake it off then you can make it through to the next day and right now as we collectively are facing one of the darkest moments if we work together if can be our finest hour and I look to you the class of twenty twenty to lead us in those next steps. We need new ideas. We need new solutions. So we turn to you. I wish you the best of luck. I congratulate you on this wonderful achievement and I can tell you that with you. We can do this because together together. We rise.

"Education or at least a substantial one Caribbean immigrants however however had a reputation for coming to the US highly literate and fairly well educated. This glaring difference fostered resentment in black. Americans as the two groups began competing for resources and employment in an increasingly crowded city. Essentially they were pitted against each other by virtue of their limited opportunity to Stephanie reshaping the story of her origin may have been a way to avoid tension with her new Harlem Neighbors Clients Chance According to researcher Marco Valente. This is a somewhat common approach used among first generation immigrants in the face of local prejudice. Many times individuals will choose to adjust their names accents or appearances to better fit their adopted country however some immigrants will take this this even further and present a new identity entirely most often these false identities hail from a country considered more high status than their actual well home. It's a strategy that Valente calls covering European countries especially our common for immigrants to claim as their cover places of origin and so once again Stephanie molded her identity to fit her knees justice she had convinced the immigrant official on Ellis island that she was a decade older. Stephanie convinced the good people of Harlem that she was in fact a refined Frenchwoman and she nailed the performance. Everyone Stephanie Saint Clair met in Harlem remembered the Beautiful Frenchwoman who took their numbers game bets. She endeared herself self to her neighbors and gained their trust. She knew everyone's names and would ask after their children and their health as far as they knew Stephanie Saint Clair cared heard about them and with her their money was always in good hands but these niceties weren't without purpose with Stephanie Anthony. There was always an endgame in her early twenties. It was winning over the people of Harlem. She was deliberately building a reputation for herself. One by one person by person priming the pump for the day. She began her own policy banking business. She was just waiting for the right moment moment and in Nineteen Twenty when Stephanie was twenty two that moment arrived prohibition was enacted that year beginning a thirteen thirteen year long renaissance of organized crime of course mobs already existed prior to Nineteen Twenty but prohibition addition just fed the beast while legal saloons closed almost immediately the doors to gin joints opened speakeasy easies began to pop up in every neighborhood in New York City and many were based in private apartments. It didn't matter who ran the operation whether black or white it was all illegal a black man's booze was as good as any other the energy and Manhattan was Electric Stephanie was living living in a time where the boundaries between illegal and legal where blurred beyond recognition. Her environment was finally catching up with her personal philosophy. All rules can be bent right and left her neighbors were profiting off prohibition and more Harlem residents making money men into things a need for banking and a need for an entertainment outlet a place to use their new disposable income policy banking would fulfill both it was finally the moment for Stephanie Saint Clair to make her next move and this time she was taking a gamble she was going into business for herself.

She opened her own policy bank. It was a huge undertaking and it wasn't cheap either. She invested ten thousand dollars in the new operation an amount that would total almost one hundred and fifty thousand dollars today. It's unclear where Stephanie acquired the seed money for the operation. It was nearly impossible to raise startup capital as a woman in the nineteen twenties and black men couldn't expect to obtain loans from mainstream banks for their legitimate businesses. Let alone black women running illegal ones it was most likely from many sources including her own savings after all Stephanie had been working king for over a decade starting at age thirteen. If this is true then such a long term accumulation of savings would mean that Stephanie we always planned to embark on some sort of entrepreneurial pursuit like everything in Stephanie's life what she did was intentional but the start of her policy bank was notable for an entirely different reason though black owned businesses were beginning to flourish in Nineteen Twenties Harlem with the start of the Harlem Renaissance and Prohibition Black People still owned and operated less than twenty percent of all businesses in the area. The the remaining eighty percent was claimed almost entirely by white business people living outside of the neighborhood and of the few women owned businesses in Harlem most so these were beauty parlours or cleaning services. Stephanie was the only black woman running her own policy bank like most things in the nineteen eighteen twenty s numbers games were male dominated scene but ironically it was perhaps one of the few fields she could pursue or her success wasn't isn't narrow due to race or gender policy banking was already operating outside the constraints of legality and therefore didn't play by the same rules as other businesses in a normative oppressive society. It was a fitting place for a black woman to gain power crime gave Stephanie Saint Clair the freedom for her star to rise and it rose hi beneath the guys of the elegant French Lady Lady Stephanie was all work ethic from the start. She threw herself into the Policy Bank and when she opened her doors she was running. The operation peration almost single-handedly save for a couple of support staff. It was hard to attract employees as a woman who barely had a business to speak of so Stephanie got her hands dirty most likely functioning in every position herself as a runner bookkeeper controller and administrator until until she could manage to recruit support like many new businesses the beginning was a slog and like many the policy bank was also a risk risk. Stephanie Likely put the entirety of her savings on the line. She'd taken a gamble hoping that she could not only accomplish what she'd set out to do but that she she could be successful doing it. This was a tall order but she was prepared. Stephanie had trained for this role for six years working working under the Dapper mail policy banker as she built relationships with her past clients in Harlem and soon all of her years of stockpiling goodwill the community paid off the entire neighborhood knew that Stephanie was sharp and resolute she soon had a full list of faithful clients hance giving the Eccentric Frenchwoman their bets she was finally getting traction and with more business came more employees in the mid nineteen twenties before Stephanie was even thirty. Her operation grew from just a handful of workers to almost sixty employees forty. The of these employees were runners. Stephanie tended to hire discreet respectable looking men who wouldn't make a cop look twice they would go go door to door visit numbers players homes take down their wagers on slips of paper and return to the policy bank then they would hand the collected money from the clients to the controllers controllers were essentially accountants who would reconcile the money and bets with the clerks who worked.

Stephanie Miller show Pauling bowl every second of every day of every minute of the Donald Trump is poised upon America. Callable on a bar who we will talk to Watergate prosecutor, Jill wine banks coming up. But it is absolute did I say yet Chris yet? Yes, you did inserting himself. This is a remember this is a PR release by lackey this is not the Muller report. So and we are entitled to it, by the way, did you see Rudy Giuliani who remains incredibly bad at his job Maha said. I expected. With ory ramming trip. I can't believe he got away with it. Dory. Several legal said that they actually seemed surprised Zeo quiet. Trump was all weekend because they know the underlying report is is terribly damaging. Right. I mean, so the fact that like they they were since does he ever shot the right, right? I think they were surprised. But again, they shouldn't be because he did Bara exactly what he did in his audition. Right. That this was exactly what he said. The president's above the law. He can't possibly have obstructed Justice, yada. Yada, yada. Ari? So we listen to this. Jin with Russia. The most ridiculous thing I've ever heard. There was no collusion with Russia. It was no struck kin. And none whatsoever. And it was a complete and total exoneration. No, no. Gli the only we didn't even get a full sentence from the actual Mullah report. Chris the one we did does not exonerate president does not exonerate. Okay. Again, everybody. There's so many questions that have not been answered that the American public has a right to know for white every single person of the hundred contacts in the Trump campaign made with Russia. Lied about it, right? Joy Reid said shouldn't we hear Muller's conclusions directly from him and not the interpretation from Trump's handpicked AG? Just everyone can come together around the same set of facts. Thank you. Yes. Alright. By the way. This. He did this on purpose. Just to further. Make our heads explode. He calls himself year president. Oh god. I okay. Yeah. It's a shame that our country to go through this. To be honest. It's a shame that you president has had to go through this for before. I even got elected it began and began illegally. And hopefully somebody's gonna look at the other side. This was and legal take down that fail. You are not my president. And Furthermore, shot Donnie will never be my president. I Representative Eric small well yesterday been dozens of indictments already people have gone to jail people are on their way to jail, and I don't know if other work has been farmed off to other offices like the southern district of New York with respect to Michael Cohen. So I will accept the Mola report. If I hear it from Mr. molar because I have respect for the rule of law. And I know my fellow colleagues do, but this is a test for the rule of law and our country right now, it's had a wrecking ball taken to it. And what we do next will determine whether it's still stands. Yep. Thank you end up one more Representative. So with Mr. bar, look I'll trust, but we have to verify. So we will see the full report because the president is outnumbered. We have now the subpoena. Power judiciary that will uphold the precedence from the Nixon era. However, I also think we will probably have to hear from Bob molar himself. I don't know how we could just accept it at Mr. bars word without the lead investigator telling us, whether he was limited in any way, or whether there were lines that he wanted to pursue that he was not able to. I think the American people will need to hear from Mr. Mola. Yep. You heard that? Right. Chris..

I'm the creator of the series army wise and also the upcoming writer director of Christy Martin. And what is your Christmas wish this year? You know, my Christmas wish is that everyone finds their voice. And I think in the last two years, we have found a voice I have heard people speak up who never spoke up before Pete women and men who are fifty and sixty years old. So I think in the future we've learned that our voice matters. And that speaking up is important, and that ultimately bullies rely on our silence and fear, and I just I'm really excited. I think that people have found their voice and that really to push the world forward and our beliefs and. I'm thrilled. And what is your prediction for twenty nineteen? I actually think there there's going to be upheaval because as soon as you say to the NFL among us that you have to grow. That's painful growth is always painful.

I want children because you know, really Christmas for children. In fact, I always feel like celebrating Christmas is not right unless you're around a child, you know, and so especially I I just think about those little kids, you know.
