Making the News – Living the dream
Posted by Quirky Books
Had someone told me several years ago that I would be a blogger, a serious writer and social media user and an entrepreneur, I would have probably laughed at them and commented something like “Yeah! Get real!” Yet here I am, being all of those things and loving every single minute of it.
I was mentioned in The New York Times this week for a blog article that I had written for Exclusive HR company, click the link below to view the mention, it is under Your People: A Virtual Company’s Culture: boss.blogs.nytimes.com/2012/09/10/this-week-in-small-business-best-facebook-pages
If you want to see the article I did for Exclusive, here is the link: exclusive-thinking.blogspot.co.uk/2012/09/redundancy-advice
I have also just launched my Facebook page for my sister company quirkybooks.net. Here is the link below: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Quirkybooksnet/144394649036836

Q: So how do quirkybooks.net and beatredundancyblues work together?
A: quirkybooks.net is currently a basic website about me and my writing. Over the next few months you will see it unravelling into an e-book store in front of your eyes and I plan to have several books written over time, some of which will specifically help people who are redundant to get back into work. As with writing anything, it all takes time and I hope you can join me on my journey – Who knows, maybe one day you will be part of my book of how it all happened and how it can happen for you too.
In the meantime – stay positive

About Quirky BooksPublished Author of BREAK THROUGH THE BARRIERS OF REDUNDANCY TO GET BACK INTO WORK - AN A-Z 'HOW TO' GUIDE and How To Get Started With Twitter For Absolute Beginners, A Step-By-Step Guide and Asexual Perspectives 47 Asexual Stories: Love, Life and Sex, ACElebration of Asexual Diversity. In a nutshell, my Break Through The Barriers Of Redundancy book is a complete A-Z system for getting back into work, and a comprehensive guide about how you can recover from the devastating effects of redundancy to live the life of your dreams. Although this book is predominantly aimed at redundant workers, the content will prove equally useful to jobseekers or anyone looking to change careers for whatever reason. This book provides eighty benefits and covers twenty-six aspects of redundancy. It’s a system because each of the chapters is broken down into ‘5 components of redundancy’. You need to master all components in order to give you the best chance of success at getting back into work. Because this book takes a holistic view of redundancy, one of the key elements to master first of all is wellbeing skills, before progressing through exploring what options are available to you and later, learning the practical job skills. This book is different because it does not just focus on one element of redundancy, but on the many barriers you need to conquer if you are to successfully get back into work, I show you how to deal with the inner trauma and turmoil of being made redundant (health and wellbeing skills), before focusing on the practical elements such as job skills, and deciding on your future path. I have worked in management roles for seven years. Part of my management duties entailed interviewing, recruiting, training and coaching staff and I took part in every aspect of the recruitment process from placing the advert to completing staff inductions and training. I have also experienced the other side of the recruitment process, when I was applying for work and being interviewed for jobs whilst redundant. I have been made redundant twice and each time managed to successfully work my way back up the career ladder. It is from experience that I have gained insight into both points of view and I am able to help others. This book is the first Quirky Book that I published and it's under my own imprint of Quirky Books. It's unique and groundbreaking because it combines two genres, an A-Z Guide with a How To book. Each of its A-Z chapters is about an element of redundancy, and within each chapter it explains how to do things related to that element to break though your barriers of redundancy and beat your redundancy blues. That’s what makes it a quirky book.
