NASA's DART mission is set to launch tonight from Vandenberg in California, on a 10-month mission that ends when it smashes into a tiny rock in space. The spacecraft is part of NASA' planetary defense plan -- figuring out ways to save our own Earth should an asteroid threaten to hit us.
Welcome back, Literary Slummers, to another episode of Shelf Aware! This week we are wrapping up Em's unit on psychological horror with T. Kingfisher's The Twisted Ones.

Speaking of stories, Jake is also author of the book Trial Running: Learning Perseverance Through Life's Aid Stations. You heard right "TRIAL running". Jake and his trail running has some very interesting roots, twists and unexpected outcomes. It was his time in Federal Prison where much of his trail running dreams were manifested.

The National Weather Service, for example, instructed hunters and outdoor recreationists to be prepared for winter conditions in the Utah mountains. This type of storm is not unusual for the month of October — and even the second half of September — in this geography, the tops of mountains. On Saturday, October 9, at 5:30 a.m., the race started off as planned in Kaysville, Utah. This town is just north of Salt Lake City in Davis County, the namesake of DC in the race name. Runners were excited for this autumn ultra, to run a rugged course that traversed the mountain range above the northern Salt Lake City suburbs, including Francis Peak and Bountiful Peak. The more prepared runners had seen the weather forecast and knew the event's high passages, and packed their running vests accordingly with jackets and gloves, some even bringing pants as a precaution. Kelly Sparks, the Davis County Sheriff, spoke about the shock it was to get a call of this magnitude. “It's pretty rare, in our part of the country, to get a call that so many people are in need of assistance. We usually deal with groups of twos and threes. We got the call at about 9:30 a.m. that there were runners out on this high altitude course that needed assistance. We sent some SAR people on foot, some on snowmobile, and some on four-wheelers. Some went from the front of the course going forward, and others went from the midpoint backtracking. We needed to ensure everyone could get off safely.” When asked about the characterization in the initial media reports of runners being lost, Sheriff Sparks stated, “I don't think anyone was lost at that time, but the [race directors] realized that it could become a real situation, with the blowing snow and visibility. We needed to get people to a warm environment as fast as possible.” The DC Peaks 50 blizzard and athlete rescue is just the tip of the iceberg of this story. You have to understand where this this story starts with Jake Kilgore as a CEO of a major motorize wheelchair company and the journey to ultra trail running. Let's talk to Jake Kilgore. There are ton of details about Jake's experience that we did not get to: Kilgore, Jake. Trial Running: Learning Perseverance Through Life's Aid Stations (p. 41). Kindle Edition. The doctor's office is left with an Orbit prescription pad in order to make the referral process simple. This pad contains checkboxes and fields for the medical professional to order supplies and materials based on a patient's needs. Many reps would make minor changes to this prescription pad and other paperwork—adding a missed checkbox, filling in a date, or writing in “ninety-nine months” when the length of need is overlooked. Everyone knew it. The owners knew it, I knew it, and our internal reviewers knew it. Although this behavior was not permitted, everyone viewed these actions as not a big deal—and certainly not criminal. Kilgore, Jake. Trial Running: Learning Perseverance Through Life's Aid Stations (p. 36). Kindle Edition. I used every Sunday for a one-on-one phone call with each of my four kids, rotating through them oldest to youngest, one Sunday at a time. This was the best I could do to keep a close, private, trusted relationship with each child. I dedicated all fifteen minutes to that one child. If you only had fifteen private minutes a month, being recorded by the government, what would you ask your child? What would you talk about? Inmates were charged roughly three bucks for their fifteen minutes. Kilgore, Jake. Trial Running: Learning Perseverance Through Life's Aid Stations (p. 50). Kindle Edition. We heard the whispers, we saw the looks of “That's Jake Kilgore. The one who's going to prison soon. His poor wife and kids. Sad that his greed and unlawful conduct would do that to them.” We heard it all. We saw it all. Our News is sponsored by Buddy Insurance.

Endurance News: GUSTAV IDEN POISED TO CAPTURE TITLE AS PTO WORLD NO. 1 Professional Triathletes Organisation today announced that Gustav Iden is poised to be crowned as PTO World No. 1 for 2021. In his victory in Florida over the weekend at his first long-distance race, Iden scored 107.23 PTO World Ranking Points, the second highest score for a full-distance race in 2021, just below the stellar performance of 2x World Champion Patrick Lange at Tulsa, where Lange scored 108.88 PTO World Ranking Points. Combined with Iden's 110.18 points scored at the IM 70.3 World Championship® and the 111.34 points he scored at The Collins Cup, this gives Iden a nearly unassailable average of 109.62 PTO World Ranking Points. With Jan Frodeno, PTO World No. 2, announcing that he is not expected to race again this season, Iden is set to finish the season as PTO World No. 1. This will be the first year since the PTO Rankings began in 2016 that Frodeno has not been PTO World No. 1 and might signal that the Changing of the Guard has well and truly begun. The PTO World Rankings are based on the average number of PTO World Ranking Points that an athlete has earned for their three best races in 2021. Frodeno's best three races are 112.86 points at The Collins Cup, 107.51 points at Challenge Miami and 88.10 points at Challenge Gran Canaria, giving him an average of 102.82 PTO World Rankings Points. Should Frodeno decide to race again before December 31 and was to score 108.52 or more PTO World Rankings Points, he would reclaim the PTO World No. 1 ranking.

The inaugural Challenge Malta will take place on Sunday 15 May 2022 with a 113km coast-to-coast course that includes the country's most spectacular scenery. Malta packs a glorious variety into its small archipelago. Malta's landscape contrasts rocky stretches of coast that end in dizzying limestone cliffs with sheltered bays that hide crystal-clear water and red-gold beaches. Combine that with its exotic mix of Italian, French, British and Arabic influences in both architecture and cuisine along with 3,000 hours of sunshine a year and Malta is an exciting new destination for the long distance triathlon world. Wattie Ink is now Spaero Triathlon Spaero Triathlon, a California-based triathlon apparel brand formerly known as Wattie Ink, has announced its new brand name. The newly branded Spaero Triathlon is also rolling out a new line of advanced technical triathlon gear and an ambassador team program. “We already have a stellar reputation for technical, high quality performance apparel,” said CEO Ryan Cady. “We are continuing to build on that foundation by working with some of the most advanced fabrics that deliver improved thermal regulation and superior aerodynamics. “I can't wait to bring these new products to market with a new look and feel. We're committed to taking triathlon training and racing apparel to the next level that will put athletes at every level at an advantage.” The new Spaero Triathlon ambassador team is comprised of elite and age-group squads. These ambassadors receive a wide range of benefits including custom apparel, training resources from human performance experts and professional athletes, exclusive event experiences, rewards, and perks from other prestigious brands. “Spaero Triathlon is an evolution for us,” added Cady. “We've been producing top quality triathlon gear for the last eight years.

Coaches Corner: I have been using TriDot as an athlete for several months now. The more experience I have with it, the more I've come to appreciate how effective the training has been for me as an athlete. It's made me question how effective my designed training plans are compared to what TriDot provides. I design training plans and workouts based on my knowledge of my athlete, what I assess they are capable of, my training philosophy and what I think is the best future training based on what the athlete has achieved in the past. Summing this up. I'm taking all of an athlete's training data, combined with the filter of my professional training as a coach, my experience as an athlete and a coach, and my philosophies to create the perfect future workouts and training cycles. My crisis is admitting that my training plans are limited by my experience and filters. TriDot is using millions of records from tens of thousands of athletes to make hundreds of calculations to design the perfect workout and training plan. It then automatically adjusts based on your training and if you miss a workout. I am signing up to be a TriDot coach because I believe the platform is that good. But this has caused me to ask the question, what coaching services that am I providing do athletes value most in a coaching relationship? Question: Bill, it's been a while since either of us was actively coached, but question for you: When you accomplished your goal, what services did you appreciate the most? Here's a list of typical coaching services. I'll read the list and you tell me what your top 5 and maybe what would be really low on your list. That work? Assessing current fitness and realistic goals Designing a perfect training plan Adjust and redesign training for life events or injuries Test and establish athletes training zones Provide inspiration and encouragement Provide feedback and accountability for training compliance Teach best practices and safety during training Teach swim form, drills, bicycle handling and running form Teach strategies for mental resilience Assess hydration and nutrition needs and develop athlete specific strategies Teach how to setup devices to be congruent with training workouts and compatible with athletes gear Upcoming Guests Marianne Martin is the first woman to win the Tour de France in 1978. Marianne Martin (born November 1, 1957 in Fenton, Michigan) is an American road racing cyclist. She won the first Tour de France for women in 1984, covering the 616-mile course in 29 hours, 39 minutes, and 2 seconds. The race was held in July and had 18 stages. The women's tour ran the same time as the men's and finished 2–3 hours before the men each day. The year she won the Tour de France Martin suffered from anemia earlier in that year and had been riding poorly. At the race Martin took the lead after stage 14 where the race encountered the mountains. Martin was a good climber and never gave up the lead after that into Paris. The streets were said to contain more two million spectators watching the race. Martin, along with runners up Heleen Hage (Dutch) and Deborah Shumway (American), stood on the podium with male champions Laurent Fignon, Bernard Hinault and Greg LeMond. Fignon's prizes were valued at over $225,000 (adjusted to 2016). Martin was awarded a trophy and $1,000. Martin was inducted into the 2012 Boulder (Colorado) Sports Hall of Fame.

In this Constellations Podcast, we'll discuss the evolution of internet in space as it moves from utilizing government infrastructure to utilizing modern commercial infrastructure. Increased commercial technology has made space more accessible than ever. More accessibility in space drives the demand for faster, more modern communication onboard spacecraft. During this episode, Brian Barnett, Co-Founder and CEO of Solstar Space Company, will discuss the evolution of space communication and how NASA has accomplished it with their deep space network, tracking and data relay satellites, and fly-over ground stations. Hear Brian explain how Solstar's Schmitt Communicator, now at the Smithsonian Air and Space Museum, enabled the first commercial tweet from space and how it currently enables secure communication for the military with Critical Data Relay technology.
When social media first surfaced, it was generally dismissed as largely inconsequential for businesses. These days, it's almost impossible to imagine a successful business without a social media presence. With the rise of Web 3 and the ubiquity of social media comes the integral concept of community and the impact and engagement it creates. Here to help us interrogate this rapidly expanding field is David Spinks, VP of Community at Bevy and Cofounder of CMX, two platforms dedicated to helping businesses create and support a thriving community. He is also the author of the new book, The Business of Belonging: How to Make Community your Competitive Advantage. In this conversation, we discuss the key difference between building an audience versus a community and why community drives deeper and more meaningful engagement for business. Learn about some of CMX's useful resources, like the SPACES Model, a fundamental framework for defining your community's business value.

When social media first surfaced it was generally dismissed as largely inconsequential for businesses. These days it's almost impossible to imagine a successful business without a social media presence. With the rise of web three and the ubiquity of social media comes the integral concept of community and the impact and engagement it creates. Here to help us interrogate this rapidly expanding field is David Spinks, VP of Community at Bevy and Cofounder of CMX, two platforms dedicated to helping businesses create and support a thriving community. He is also the author of the new book The Business of Belonging: How to Make Community your Competitive Advantage. In our conversation, we discuss the key difference between building an audience versus a community, and why community drives deeper and more meaningful engagement for business. Learn about some of CMX's useful resources, like the SPACES Model, a fundamental framework for defining your community's business value. We also discuss the most common mistakes businesses make when they first build their communities and how to go about it the right way.

Today we'll be discussing Winter's Orbit by Everina Maxwell. One day, out of the blue, free-spirited Prince Kiem learns of his duty to marry to maintain peace. He's okay with this, he knew it would happen one day, but he doesn't want to marry the still mourning widower of his cousin. Jainan, the prospective groom, is reserved, careful, and seemingly repelled by Kiem, all expected behaviors of a grieving spouse. However, when it's revealed that his previous husband died under suspicious circumstances, these actions become questionable. Caught in an expanding web of politics and deceit, Kiem and Jainan must learn to trust each other while they work to discover the truth--and love.

Tracy Silverman, electric violin virtuoso and pioneer, and conductor Devin Patrick Hughes speak about “The Agony of Modern Music,” the history of how many strings came to be on the violin, Tracy's debut with the Chicago Symphony, his stint as a musical Olympian, how to not achieve perfection, playing like Ray Charles, Jascha Heifetz, and Jimi Hendrix. He also discusses his collaborations with Terry Riley, John Adams and his Electric Violin Concerti, and his album Between the Kiss and the Chaos. Described as “the greatest living exponent of the electric violin” by the BBC, pioneering violinist and composer Tracy Silverman believes “strings must evolve or they will perish” and his mission is to reconnect strings with our popular culture and to teach string players to groove. His groundbreaking work incorporating rock, jazz, Americana, hip-hop, and other popular genres with the 6-string electric violin has upended the contemporary classical genre, and his strum bowing method has been adopted by performers all around the world. Terry Riley described Tracy's violin playing as being like an orchestra itself. John Adams said: “When I heard Tracy play I was reminded that in almost all cultures other than the European classical one, the real meaning of the music is in between the notes. No one makes that instrument sing and soar like Tracy, floating on the cusp between Heifetz and Jimi Hendrix.” Tracy was first violinist in the Turtle Island String Quartet, and was named one of the 100 distinguished alumni by the Juilliard School, and as a composer has 3 Electric Violin concerts among other works, and has performed concertos written for him by John Adams, Terry Riley, Nico Muhly, and Kenji Bunch. The violin virtuoso and humanitarian was recently featured on NPR's Tiny Desk Concerts, Performance Today, CBS Sunday Morning, and A Prairie Home Companion, and is an internationally in-demand clinician and currently teaches at Belmont University in Nashville. Thank you for joining us on One Symphony and thanks to Tracy Silverman for sharing his performances and works.

I am so excited this week to have with us the woman the myth, the legend, Rosie Sherry. Hello. So excited to have you. So you were I founder of Ministry of Testing, lead community at Indie Hackers, which is probably how many people listening know you, currently leading community for Orbit. Also have your own thing going on Rosieland, which is a community about community. So excited to talk to you.Rosie Sherry 1:30 Thank you, thank you. It's good to be here.Michele Hansen 1:33 So I want I want to start out with something something I noticed when I think about your background is how you've kind of gone between being a founder yourself, and intentionally working for other people also having sort of other things going on. And, you know, on the show in the past, we've kind of talked a little bit about how sometimes there's this perception that there's this sort of like staircase of an entrepreneurs career where you start out working for other people, and then maybe you have an info product, and then maybe you do consulting, and then you do an info product, and then you have a SAS and then I don't know, and it's like this sort of like staircase. And there's this sort of like implied increase in virtue throughout all of that. And then if you're taking backwards steps, that's seen as like, literally like a step backwards. And it's like this ladder rather than being this kind of what I'm more see in people's actual careers, which is kind of moving between different things as their interests lead them and as their life leads them. I feel like I see that in your career. And I'm kind of curious how you think about these shifts you've made between working for yourself and working for other people? And like, like, kind of all of that.Rosie Sherry 2:45 Yeah, it's kind of like steps going up and down, right? Or going up and down or left, I guess, an elevator? Yeah, I mean, I have like, no idea what I'm doing. But I guess like, I kind of go with the flow. When I when I stepped back from Ministry of testing, I had been doing that for 10 years. And I thought, like, as I was stepping back, I thought I'd never work for someone else's, like my plan was to take some time off and just like, take it easy for it. And just, I don't know, see what I wanted to do. And I knew I kind of wanted to, like focus in on community, but I wasn't sure how. And then, like, the opportunity with indie hackers came up. And I was like, Oh, you know, this could be fun. This could be interesting. I think I could learn a lot from how courtland has built community there. It's similar to ministry testing, in some ways, but yet, it's, it's really different. So I kind of just jumped on that, like, you know, earlier, earlier than I had planned. I was I was a contractor there for the whole time. And I was there for two years as a contractor. And basically, we just kept renewing the contract, like every three to six months. So it wasn't like it was the plan, stay there. And apparently surprised that I stayed there for two years, I thought I wouldn't last I thought I wouldn't be able to kind of work for someone else after like doing my own thing for 10 years. That was interesting. There's a lot of benefit, especially, I think, perhaps more these days where everything just seems I just feel like there's so much opportunity out there. And there's a lot of things that I didn't like about running a business. I didn't necessarily want to manage people, I didn't want to do the accounts, I didn't want to worry about money or worry about, you know, the future of, of the business. So yeah, I mean, this, you know, loads of things about running a business that I think people try to glorify, they try to hide, they try to not talk about it. But you know, it can be stressful. And I think my realization after running the Ministry of testing, is actually I don't, I don't want to run a company and employ people. I don't want to be responsible for someone's wages at the point of life that I that I am in at the moment. might might change over time, but right now Yeah, I'd rather like I guess, do something more for me something more, you know, focusing on, like my interest in things that that I need. And yeah, and I guess like contracting, bringing home a paycheck, that's great. But you know, for me, it's been, you know, it was great, I saved up a bunch of money, I didn't actually spend any of the money that I made in the hackers. So that was like a nice, consistent income for me to like, you know, get our family more and more of a safety net. Now, my Uber and I never, ever considered working for a startup people have it. Yeah, it's, it's new. For me, it's different from me. But this negative, there's a lot of pros as well. So I try to kind of be mindful of all of that. And, you know, there's days, I just want to pack it all in and say, I can't be bothered, I should just go back to being independent. But there are other days where I'm just like, no, this is actually really good. I'm enjoying what I'm doing this, you know, there's a great team that I'm working with. And again, you know, I get paid well, I don't have to worry about money, I don't have to invoice people the money every month in my bank account. And I'm like, Oh, this is nice. This is, you know, this nice not just to show up and do the work.Michele Hansen 6:11 You mentioned how it was stressful, being responsible for people's paychecks. And I totally relate to that. I think it's one of the reasons why we haven't really, you know, formally hired here, right? Like, I have a VA, but you strike me as someone who you know, and this comes through so much in your work for indie hackers in your work on community who like deeply cares about other people, and supporting them and encouraging them and helping them reach their goals, and you know, and be that person they want to be. And I wonder if that almost made it harder to be running a company and responsible for people's income when you felt so responsible for those outcomes and really invested in them as people?Rosie Sherry 6:57 Yeah, I mean, it's actually interesting, because I still own in ministry, testing, or co owner, when you're founded, you kind of like, I guess, the foundation of everything that comes later, to a certain extent. So like, the fact that I worked when I wanted, the fact that I had five kids, the fact that I just like took time off when I needed to the fact that I defined, you know, decided my own hours, all of those things, ended up becoming how things were done administrator testing, and it's become more apparent, I guess, as the team, I think about eight or nine people at the moment, at first, you know, I was only one with kids. And, you know, I was very much family friendly person, I would support, you know, everything about me is like, we need to live our own lives as well. We need to have flexibility, you know, work shouldn't stop us having having a family and doing things that we want to do. And at first, it was like, just me it was kids. But then like, as the years have gone, I think last year, there were three new babies born within the company, and as a team with like nine people that's like, oh, wow, how are we gonna manage this as like, as a company, even though it's not my responsibility anymore. There's a CEO running it. But he very much took on the philosophy of like, well, this is how Rosie has always done it. So this is what everybody else gets to do as well. So we let the mothers choose what they want to do. We let them you know, take the time off that they need to take time off, and have a say, and there's no there's no judgment for any of it. And we listen, and we care and we try to make good decisions, even even if it costs us money, right. And like, as a small company, and you have three of your people off on maternity leave is a big kind of hit. But it's not something that feels wrong, it very much feels right and like allowing everybody just to choose the time that they have off and pay in the world. And you know, making sure that they get a fair deal when they're often on maternity leave is to me, you know, I couldn't do it any other way. Because it would feel hypocritical. And for me, it's just like, I can't have once that rule to me and like different set of rules for For everyone else, even if I never took maternity leave properly. I believe like, you know, everybody else should have had that right to do that. I guess.Michele Hansen 9:20 It sounds like a bit like Golden Rule management, like treating others as how you would want to be treated.Rosie Sherry 9:26 Yeah, I don't understand why companies can't do that. can't comprehend it. And it's probably why I haven't. It took me I guess it's probably why it took me a long time to actually end up working for other people. Because without listen to the pandemic, because just like nobody was truly flexible enough in their thinking about how people showed up for work. And I've been working from home all this time on my own rolls, and then the pandemic comes along and I'm just like, still working the same way that I was working before. This ain't nothing changed for me day to day, but for everyone else. Or, you know, like a huge majority of people, life change and companies rethought their processes and what was acceptable and what wasn't acceptable. And the fact that we can all work from home now I think is is great, but at the same time is unlike Well, why couldn't we do this before we could have. But companies, you know, I guess like it wasn't urgent enough to think of our needs until the pandemic came along.Michele Hansen 10:26 And, you know, you mentioned how your life didn't change all that much with the pandemic. Yeah, I want to detour for a second because I understand that so you have five children, and you unschool them and it would just be interesting for a moment just to talk about not only what does that look like but also you know, you mentioned your whole life didn't change much. And I'm kind of curious what does that home life look like between you and your husband with this sort of unschooling elements layering on top of also like your, your work life? Like how does all of that work together?Rosie Sherry 11:02 Yeah, it's tough. I think like unschooling, I think the toughest part about unschooling, I think is, or even homeschooling is about making that kind of adjustment to life, like trying to instead of like, you know, if if kids go to school, you know, you have the six, eight hour block of time to kind of get work done and you can plan things around that with unschooling is like, well, you kind of have to plan for your kids. And then you have to plan your work around your kids, and you have to juggle things. With me, it's with my husband, we like have equal share on like, the kids in the house. And I just think that's the hardest part is like most people, probably, I guess I feel I feel privileged to be able to do that at the moment. But like, I guess, like, the thing I do is like, we're having this chat for me, it's in the morning. And that's like, not my normal schedule. So the like, normally like I'm online from midday till eight, and I'm with my kids from when they wake up until midday. And then at midday, me my husband swapped over. And that's those are the, that's the deal we have right now, to make things work. And so, in the morning, I would normally take my kids to a class that they have or a group that they go to, and it works, I guess, to try and to split that time, it changes all the time as as my work changes, or as my husband's work changes, we find ways to adapt and I guess that's the magic of unschooling, I guess like unschooling is like, we're always, I guess, we're always looking for things that our kids want to do to keep them active. So every day, especially our younger ones, who are between the age of three and 10. You know, getting them out out the house once a day is like basically our goal. And that happens in different ways at the moment, except for school, beach school, art class, sports, or football. And then other days that we hire, or we pay a friend to take them out for the day. She's like a single mom, and appreciates extra bit bit of income. It's tough, it really is tough. And it's like we have to say no to things a lot of the time, but I think at the same time, I think like the pandemic has kind of worked in my favor as well. Now that everyone's online, I feel like what's the right word? I guess previous to the pandemic, I felt like I was only one needing to have the flexibility. But I think like these days, it's it's more more acceptable. I guess, everyone's more accommodating, like having kids in the background is okay. Pre pandemic, that was not okay. You know, stuff like that, you know, despite COVID I appreciate how the world has changed. We feel it feels weird. I don't know. What do you think it feels? It feels weird to? Yeah, to say that. But I think you know, actually, there's been positives from COVID.Michele Hansen 13:57 I think it's forced us to reevaluate things and maybe shifts that were happening very slowly, like you mentioned, you know, more work from home and maybe more flexibility shifts that were happening very, very slowly, or only in very specific corners of the economy were kind of thrust on everyone all at once, which was both traumatic and also sped up things that needed to happen to at the same time at great cost to everyone involved, Beto as you said, like, you know that it's acceptable to have children in the background or even a dog barking, like I remember two years ago, you know, before COVID, and I was having a call and my dog barked in the back because the mailman was there or whatever. Like, I always felt so embarrassed on the call. And, you know, I remember sometimes, you know, the people, you know, whoever I was having a, you know, customers having call with, or one of them being like, Oh yeah, you know, we have a dog friendly office too. And I was just like, Yeah, like, dog friendly office, you know, that whole thing of like being a really small company and not wanting? Yes, I'm actually like working from home like that being kind of like something to be sheepish about, you know, like that you were working from home because it was like, What? Like, can you not afford an office? Are you not legit enough to have an office? Like, do you not like it used to prompt so many questions, most of them not very, like, positively reflecting on the company. But then all of a sudden, you know, so many of us, you know, who were lucky enough to be working from home, everybody was working from home, everybody, you know, had kids in the background dogs in the background cats on their keyboard, like, you know, and we all just had to learn how to be a little bit more understanding with one another.Rosie Sherry 15:41 Well, human right, I think like, we, we've learnt to appreciate and see that we all live in different circumstances, and we should adapt to that, and we should make sure it's okay. You know, almost like, I guess, like, the whole diversity movement, I guess, in the past few years is, you know, crept up. And, you know, to me, this is also like, part of it is like, we're all human, we're all people, we have different circumstances, that the sooner we can make that, okay for everyone to just like, be who they are opt in, opt out things, be able to, you know, not have shame for, for whatever it might be, I think like, the better the quicker, we can just like, move on and like, kind of focus on our work and get and get things done.Michele Hansen 16:38 Using shame, just there kind of reminded me of what we sort of started this conversation with, which is, you know, in your career, you have sort of intentionally and consciously moved between contracting and, and being a founder and working for other people. And when people come to a situation where they realize that maybe consulting isn't working for them, or they're trying to get their own SAS off the ground, and it's not working, and the finances are tight, and they're thinking about, you know, going out and getting a job. Yeah, it seems like people often feel a lot of shame around that. And then that feels like failure to them. And I think what your story shows that, you know, it's not linear. And, and I'm just kind of curious what you would say to someone who is kind of maybe at that point, who is wondering, you know, just, you know, that thing, things aren't, things aren't working, or the finances aren't there. And they've they've got to go back and, you know, get a job, like, what would you say to them?Rosie Sherry 17:56 I definitely felt this, like in the indie in the indie world, like, being immersed in that world. And, you know, people want to make it they want to be full time, indie hackers. And it almost becomes, like, a thing of like, what if you're not a full time indie hacker, then, like, you know, you're not a success really are there's only one way. And, you know, I almost, you know, thought that, you know, I thought even just like working in India, because I thought I wouldn't last I thought, you know, people, you know, I wouldn't make an impact. I wouldn't enjoy working with courtland, or all that kind of stuff. And even even when I joined indie hackers, the opportunity came up as a result of courtland looking for some social media help. And I was just like, at that point, I was just looking for something else to do. And like when I reached out to him, he was like, Yeah, but you're overqualified for this. I was like, Yeah, I know. But I'm, you know, I'm still like, yeah, I could do it. And, you know, I, I personally felt like I could learn from indie hackers. And that role ended up being more like of a community manager community lead role that he that he offered me. But did I feel shame, like doing that a little bit, but at the same time, as I, it doesn't matter, you know, I need to, you know, I really wanted just to have an excuse to do something else. And so yeah, I work for CEO, founder to social media and community manager, which is a step back, right? You know, on paper, it's a step back. But actually what it did for me was was huge, is like, before I joined India, because no one in the indie world really knew who I was. There's a few people here in there. But what it did for me was was massive. So I say I think a lot of the time choices, I guess, perhaps is that it's not all about money. It's not all about job titles. And we can dismiss job titles is not important. That's, you know, I think sometimes they can be but I think I think, if we think about, or like, the way I think about it is like, well, I want to do stuff, I want to learn stuff, and I want to work on things I care about. And does it matter if it's starting your own thing? or working for someone else? I don't think it really does. I think, at least for me, it's like, you know, five, finding, finding the right people to work with is, is key. And yeah, I mean, there's a lot of jobs that I'm sure would be sucky. And I see I definitely see people struggle, working for companies and being like, part indie part, like, working for companies. So yeah, I don't think like anything is necessarily Perfect. Perfect solution. But I guess it's like more about like, finding your fit what's right for you? How do you get to do the work that you do? Enjoy? How are you growing personally? And, like all, but I think I'm growing a lot personally. And also in, in my, I guess, desire to kind of impact the community world, I think I'm doing that. And I get access to stuff that I wouldn't, if I was trying to do all, all of that kind of stuff on my own. So yeah, there's definitely like, the pros and cons. So yeah, but but it's easy to think because when I joined, obey, it was at the back of my mind is that oh, my God, what will people think? I've been indie for, for 15 years. You know, should I actually take this job? Is it is it in conflict with, with who I am? Those are all that was definitely in the back of my mind, I can't, I won't lie about that. Yeah, I was nervous about announcing that. I'm not sure what people would think. But I think, at the end of the day is like, I'm still sticking to, to who I am, I'm still sticking to my values, I'm still pushing for the things that are important to me in all of it. And if I don't get those, and it's going to become a problem. You know, say, I'm still being me, in every, every space that I show up. And, and that's what's important to me, is that, and if I can't get that, then that's where it becomes a problem. For me, I think, Patrick, my boss,Michele Hansen 22:52 I noticed that you just said how you had this conflict around identity. And I feel like that's running undercurrent of a lot of time when people are having this struggle, is identifying as a founder, and all of the things that come with it, identifying as an indie hacker, identifying as someone who, you know, runs their own things and whatnot, and shifting identity into something else into, into, you know, who am I if I am not somebody who runs their own company? What does that say about me? Just who am I as as a person, I think in a world where we wrap up so much of our identity and what we do for work. That's a, that's a massive and can be quite a, you know, debilitating sort of shift and psychological process to go through. And yet what I also heard you say several times throughout the, the conversation is a reason why you took the job with indie hackers, or the contract with indie hackers, is because you wanted to learn and, and I wonder if that transition is a little bit smoother. When you think of, you know, there's you have this identity as an indie hacker, as a founder, you also have an identity as someone who likes to do other things. And one of those, I think, for you that really comes through is somebody who's curious, and who likes to learn and letting another identity almost kind of supplant that, that founder, one that's sort of, you know, taking a backseat.Rosie Sherry 24:40 Yeah, it's interesting. It actually brings me back to like minister testing and like when I stepped back, it was like, Oh my god, like, Who am I? Who am I going to be now I've been this testing person, this person, leading the testing community for so long. I'm almost leaving behind. And much of that, obviously they I still keep in touch with people, but I'm not in that world anymore. Yeah, it was, it was hard, it's hard to shift away from that and to figure out how to how to kind of redefine your life and who you want to be. And how do you get people to, I guess, to see that to know that and, and yeah, it's, it's tough and I guess like, right now with the indie stuff like, you know, I do Rosi land stuff on the side. But even that, I feel like oh, you know, I see a lot of the indie stuff happening, I still keep an eye on indie hackers. But, you know, at the same time I miss in the hacking as well, I don't do nearly as much as I would love. And, you know, I struggle with that. So it's like, how much of these different people can I be? How do I? How do I separate that? Do I need to separate that? And I mean, I was I was employed over it was no full well, knowing that I had all this stuff on the side. And that that had to continue to exist when I joined over it. But yeah, I feel like I definitely feel less a part of the indie world. Because just because I don't have the time to spend in it. And that makes me feel sad. Definitely sad. And I want to do more, but I can't just because because of time. But yeah, I don't even know where I'm going with this. But this constant shift of identity moving on, almost like shedding skin. All right, is that I shed my skin from history testing. I'm shedding my skin a bit from indie hackers, but not quite. And, you know, moving through life, I think, like, I think we almost become different people as we grow up. I mean, I think I'm in my early 40s now, and am I the same person? I was 10 years ago. So yes, but no. And that's okay. Yeah, I don't even know where I'm going. But yeah.Michele Hansen 27:31 It's interesting you say that I love how you dove into the identity shifts of that. And you're like, so even though you're no longer with, you know, indie hackers proper. I still think of you as the mama bear. The indie world is my head but like that's, that's it's you know, Rosie, Sherry mama bear of the indie hackers.Rosie Sherry 27:59 Well, I like that. I'll have to put that on my Twitter. But it's interesting, right? People will always remember you for different things. So there'll be people from the testing community who will always remember me for ministry testing, and things I did, and nothing will probably change as much in a ton of indie hackers out there will remember me as being the mom of their I love it. Yeah, and like, the more I do all of it, orbit, the more people associated me not with being indie, but being more all about community. And that's okay, as well. Right? And what does it mean is that, I don't know. But But I think like, I mean, you know, I guess it goes back to trends, life, the world changing, no one has careers for life anymore. And this is you know, probably I guess a proof of it is like, let's, you know, change as we grow, let's be okay with, like, actually discovering things. As we learn about ourselves, and as we learn about the world around us, and, and adapt and we should Yeah, I think we should all be able to do that and make make it feel okay. And make it you know, not not feel like step backwards, is you know, it's not a step backwards. It's just like, as you as an individual, you you're doing what's what's right for you at any point in your life. And that's, you know, that's okay.Michele Hansen 29:45 I'm reminded of the Walt Whitman, quote, I contain multitudes and, and I feel like what you're saying is, is about that we have many different identities and even the identities of us in other people's minds may be different than what we think of ourselves as or reflects a version of us in the past. And, you know, you're that that identity that you had as a founder, the identity you had, as the community person for indie hackers. As rosy land, as community person at orbit, like, all of those are valid, and they all exist, regardless of you know, what you're currently we're doing. And I feel like, what you're saying is, you don't really have to choose one, you know, you can still you can still have all of those pieces and so many more pieces of yourself. And, and it's okay to shift and change and grow.Rosie Sherry 30:54 No, think like, as as, I guess, like an unschooling approach to things we encourage, everything we do is like child led learning. And, like, I live that, that same philosophy in life is like, you know, I think like, like, as I get older, I just, I just can't spend any time on anything I don't enjoy. And then when I look at my kids, I'm like, why should they have to spend any time on the things that they don't enjoy, we should, like, you know, focus, focus all our energy as much as is possible to do the things that we love, because that's, that's like a really special place to be. And, like, at the moment, like, like, you know, I've been working for 23 years of my life, when I started out, working. Man, it was just like, a different place. And like, where I am, now, I'm like, this is just such a better place to be doing work that, that I love that I appreciate that, that, you know, I believe I can have impact on. And if I look back at myself, like 20 years ago, and see see where I am now, I say, I would have like, I guess, never, never imagined that this kind of life is possible. The life I had then was about working in jobs that I didn't really enjoy that much, or for companies that I wasn't really, that interested in what they were doing. And now it's like, everything's flipped to like, I'm working for a company that I believe in what they're doing, I enjoy the day to day work, we're aligned in the things that we want to do. And that's just like, Whoa, you know, how, you know, how great is that, to be a part of that. And regardless of the outcome, whether, you know, I continue to rise up in the company where they continue to get pay raises, whether whether orbit ends up, you know, growing massively in IPO, and that that doesn't matter. To me, it's like what matters is, you know, being able to do do what I love, right now.Michele Hansen 33:22 Follow the things you love, even if those things take you from entrepreneurship, to working for other people and changing your identity. And, yeah,Rosie Sherry 33:34 I look at Patrick, my, one of the cofounders I see some of the things that he has to do as a founder. And I'm like, I'm so glad I'm not doing that. And like I can see it as the founders because like, not not to the same extent, you know, they've raised money, it's a different game. But you know, that the same principles applies, like, I don't have to do any of that stuff. And I'm very happy about that.Michele Hansen 34:03 It sounds like you're in a good place. Now. I want I want to thank you for for joining us today. You know, we again, in this sort of indie world, we talk a lot about building in public and you know, I talked about writing in public. But something I am really valuing lately is when people are willing to be vulnerable in public. And I feel so much from that of that from you. And not only in on on Twitter, and your support of other people, but also here today. And, and I have a feeling that your story today is it's gonna make somebody at least one person feel feel less alone and feel feel better about their journey. Hopefully you know, less shame about Going from entrepreneurship to employment?Rosie Sherry 35:06 I hope so. I hope so. I try. I think it's, it's hard, I guess. I mean, I don't know what your experiences but like women in tech when in business, whether it's like, I guess it's hard to stand up to certain things and be open about the challenges that we have. And so yeah, I try my best, I think my confidence increases over time. I will say, I don't give a damn anymore, like what people think. I don't know if that comes of age. But like, you know, I definitely wasn't this open about everything before. So, yeah, part of me like does it to, to help other people see, I think it's important, like, who I am a woman, five kids on schooling. I kind of want to show people that. Yeah, yes, I'm a bit obsessive with the things that I want to do. I'm, like, you know, switched on, like, all the time, pretty much. But But I spend lots of time with my kids as well, you know, I managed to make it work. And I guess that my hope is that in time, like more people can be like this, if that's what they choose, you know, if they, if they can see the possibility. You know, it's done me a lot of good. And I guess, like, there must be more people out there that want something like this. And for them to be able to see an example. I guess is, is what's in the back of my mind when I tweet when I write when I do my things? Yeah. Yeah. Well, thank you. Yeah,Michele Hansen 36:59 thank you so much for yesterday. I've really enjoyed this conversation.Rosie Sherry 37:05 Thank you, Michelle. I appreciate catching up.Michele Hansen 37:08 If you enjoyed this episode, please let Rosie and I know on Twitter.

Hello and welcome to CHAOSScast Community podcast, where we share use cases and experiences with measuring open source community health. Elevating conversations about metrics, analytics, and software from the Community Health Analytics Open Source Software, or short CHAOSS Project, to wherever you like to listen. Today, our guest is Erin Staples, who works as a Community Advocate at Orbit. She is with us to talk about social science theories and what we can learn from other communities. Erin tells us the importance of making sure your contributors feel valued, creating a very inclusive, mindful environment online, and she explains how we can learn a lot from how Fandom communities measure health. She goes in depth about behaviors at gatherings such as conferences and she shares advice in creating online spaces. Download this episode now to find out much more, and don't forget to subscribe for free to this podcast on your favorite podcast app and share this podcast with your friends and colleagues. [00:02:00] Erin fills us in a little on her background and about what they do at Orbit with building a healthy community in the online space. [00:03:38] How did Erin get so interested in this topic? [00:05:33] For the social science conversation and Fandom, Erin talks about how she started to explore this huge topic. She tells us about a journal article she loves from Rachel Winter, Anastasia Salter, and Mel Stanfill who wrote about the “Communities of making: Exploring parallels between Fandom and open source.” [00:09:02] Erin explains more about the behaviors and how they happen at gatherings and in the Fandom world. [00:13:30] Georg brings up how open source is changing and has changed over the years with more organizations getting involved in creation of software and paying employees to be in these communities and Erin shares her thoughts about how this may be changing the dynamic. The Founder of Linux, Linus Torvalds, comes up in conversation as well. [00:19:47] Venia tells us about a website called Budget Light Forum and Erin talks about “the medium is the message,” which is a quote from Marshall McLuhan and how this relates to the way we think about online spaces and how we transmit information. [00:24:44] Georg brings up a great point if you want to understand the community you actually have to talk to the community members and ask them how that makes them feel, if they feel welcome and included, etc., and Erin and Venia share their thoughts on this. [00:28:11] As more people are working online, maintainer burnout in open source is discussed, which existed before COVID, with pressure to maintain the quality of code and for being responsive and they're not feeling appreciated. [00:30:41] Erin talks about some action steps to creating online spaces and shares an example of the Dunning-Kruger effect. [00:32:04] Find out where you can follow Erin online. Adds (Picks) of the week: * [00:32:46] Georg's pick is re-reading the Eragon series in English. * [00:33:38] Venia's pick is a book called Systematic Methods for Analyzing Culture: A Practical Guide. * [00:34:22] Erin's pick is a book called A City is Not a Computer: Other Urban Intelligences.

In today's episode, our guest is Frederick Bussey. He is a writer, speaker, coach, creative, and serial entrepreneur. He helps leaders and organizations unleash their hidden potential and connect more powerfully with their ideal clients. He helps his clients gain extreme clarity of purpose, execute with greater precision and consistently perform at the highest level. This person is passionate about helping business owners create more leverage, generate more impact, and ultimately realize a more fulfilling level of success. Today, he will share with us how he helped struggling entrepreneurs scale their businesses to live the life they dreamed about. [4:47] Why should we listen to you? I'm interested in people. I want to know what people are up to. What makes them tick, their story, and what their dreams are. And I believe that my role is to help people see what's possible to tap into those dreams. I learned to be patient, be in the moment, and listen. It is sometimes what people need; to feel pain, and many don't feel that way. [06:39] When you work with people, do you find sometimes they get that soft on the inside going on? Absolutely. As entrepreneurs, we talk a lot about imposter syndrome and that kind of thing. We always defer to the lowest level of our training, and our programming, and our mind. A lot of people managers are stuck in that space. It's difficult to believe the best things about yourself when we typically focus on those lowest negative thoughts that drive us crazy. [08:07] What is your go-to starting point where they should make a move? We always talked about getting out of your way. The reason we're in our own way is that we believe that we are, in some ways, we overestimate the impact we're supposed to have. And we underestimate the fact that we can have in the world. We had to dive in and figure out where that root is and then unhook it from your ship. You can seek and let go. You can move forward and create the momentum to accelerate [10:32 ] How did you figure it out? A couple of years ago, I realized that everything that I've been building towards even working in the music industry. I was helping to kind of tap into my gift. The discovery process allowed me to realize I could do it more powerfully in this way than all the other ways that I've been trying before, unveil for me why I wasn't delighted. I made this choice actually to invest in a coach instead of paying the rent. I don't believe that I have a solution. He sent me a message back that just changed everything from me. He said God doesn't make people without answers. [18:10] How does the book unpack and like roll through the flow of somebody finding that? I talk about how it is that we don't understand what a gift is. A skill is not a gift—it is something that you learn. When you go to school, it's up to the learner to develop a skill; it is a way of doing something. And so if you have to learn it, or if you can acquire it, then it can't be given to you. You can do something that only you can do; the only way you can do it is in you from birth. I talked about in the book how Dr. George land did a study where he was studying creativity and children. He realized using tests that 90% of these children are born on a genius level of creativity. A gift is our ability to create an impact in the world in a unique way. Most of us never discover that because we are taught to abandon what society or the world sees as valuable. [24:26] The big thing about writing this book is that I felt more and more compelled to write it because these are things that people don't hear. And I didn't realize that people didn't listen to it, even though I didn't even know it myself. [26”52] The thing that this book uncovered, and the writing process of writing, was just that the end is already guaranteed. Your purpose is in your gift, and it is made to create an impact. [29:06] Future Analogy I would describe our gift as the type of container associated with the function we're supposed to have in the world. If we think about all those experiences that go into our lives, right, we're shaped to hold a particular type of container experiences. We're also designed to pour those experiences out to share them with other people. And the way that that that comes out with a water hose, a water hose is a container in some ways it transports water from so everything that we have, everything was designed was a certain way. [32:05] What promise did God make to the world when He created you? I'm going to show you I'm going to be able to tell you, you can discover what that means. I was here to translate the meaning to help people understand what it all means, but not all of it. But we can do whatever I can.

In this Self-Coaching episode, Lauren and I discuss relationships—especially toxic relationships that chronically deflate us, frustrate us, and worse, depress us. Why in the world do we waste time on people who are toxic for us? You'll find the answer in Self-Coaching's technique called “Orbits.” Once you understand your relationship “orbits” you'll never be disappointed by someone's shabby behavior again. Never! It's important to keep in mind that not all friendships are equal. It's time to spend more time on friends that you're in synch with and less time with “quasi-friends” who typically wind up draining you. It's better to be discriminate and have one or two close friends rather than many quasi-friends. It's the quasi-friends who often leave you scratching your head asking, “Why do I put up with this nonsense?” But even with quasi-friends, as long as they are placed in their proper "orbit," it's possible to include them in your life without being negatively affected by them. Remember, “In life, we never lose friends, we only learn who the true ones are.”

On today's show we're talking about getting trapped in the wrong orbit. Now I realize that when I use the word wrong, it sounds like I'm making something right and something else wrong. What that really means is getting trapped in an orbit that's different from what you might have intended. This type of thing happens all the time in all kinds of industries. It stems from having imprecise goals. That lack of clarity can be a trap. ----------------- Host: Victor Menasce email: email@example.com
