For those of you who don’t already know, my Daisy sadly died, on Sunday 15th of March, from a respiratory infection.
Sometimes in life, we can’t move on, because to do that, it is as though we are detaching ourselves from those we loved in life. In this case, if you can’t move on, move yourself forward in your life! Don’t look back. You just have to keep looking ahead. Don’t dwell, don’t churn over the situation in your mind, just accept it as it is and then look to the future. You can reflect for a while, but try not to think a long time about it.
You need time to heal, but you also need to think positively about the future. Everything happens for a reason, good or bad, so just think of that and then there is no need to ask why. You just accept the situation as it is and keep propelling yourself forward to your wonderful destiny.
How do you move yourself forward in your life?
How am I moving forward in my life?
One of my goals is to by an Inspirational Speaker on stage in London, and I am taking action to achieve it.
I am going to London for 2 nights Mon 30th – Wed 1st April, for a Stand and Deliver Speaker Training course with Andy Harrington, the World’s Expert Leading Speaker Coach. I have got his Passion into Profit book and it’s amazing. By reading Andy’s book, I now know why I wasn’t meant to publish my Break Through The Barriers Of Redundancy book last year, because I need to write and tell my story at the front of the book. So I still have to do this. Everything happens for a reason, it’s just whether we choose to see it or not. My intuition told me that last year I was not ready to publish it because I needed to build my websites first. I still have some more to build. Once my websites are finished, my book will be my priority, followed by more how-to books for my Quirky Books e-book store. I am so very excited and cannot wait to share all of the upcoming writing news with you, as in unfolds.
There will be about 100 people attending the Stand and Deliver Speaker training course, and it will be being filmed. I cannot wait. This is a much needed boost to my goal attainment.
Stay positive and keep being quirky you.

And a thriver.

Stay with me
And be strong.

A super brave guinea pig, by far.

Just believe in you too.
You can and will pull through,
Just go and do,
Whatever it takes,
There are no brakes.
Be a brave warrior and fight through the night,

Dedicated to my Guinea Pig Daisy, who is seriously sick with a respiratory infection.
I wrote this last night and read it to her before falling asleep. She is still with me so far today.
As you may or may not know, I teach Blogging as an aid to recovery for the Recovery Learning Community, that is part of the NHS Partnership Trust.
I also teach Blogging for Business Fast Track Masterclass and Blogging for Health and Happiness Workshop, at the Phoenix in Exeter, in Devon, in the UK. For this, I go under the name of Blog Trainer UK and have my own http://www.blogtrainer.co.uk site, that is a Google Verified Business.
No longer do you have to suffer in silence. You can find your voice, and Beat Your Blues Through Blogging. It’s a great way of connecting to like-minded people and of growing your confidence and self-esteem. It helped to heal my own recovery from depression and it can help you too.
I am pleased to say that Blog Trainer UK is #FLbiz of the Month, for both January and February 2015. In order to receive the award, you have to use #FLbiz in your tweets. This gives you free business promotion in the form of Retweets of your Tweets.
I am also pleased to tell you, that #FLbiz is a free business promotional tool, from the company http://www.firstletter.biz and http://www.firstletter.co.uk and the person behind the company, Aaron Palmer, I have been mentoring for some time in his business. I came up with the idea for Business of the Month; that has been hugely successful in helping his business to grow.
Here is the Founder, Aaron Palmer’s testimonial, of the Quirky Mentoring work that I have done for, and with him.
“When our business needed effective marketing and development strategies in order to build our brand, Sandra and Quirky Mentoring worked closely with us to provide a unique, quirky and successful solution which was personalised to our business. She created opportunities for us by suggesting our Business of the Month competition which has really increased the awareness of our hashtag #FLbiz and has helped grow our business with our hashtag now having over 5 million views per month. Sandra has also supported us every step of the way in increasing our Twitter followers from 2,000 to nearly 10,000 in just under 11 months with new and quirky ways with engaging with our audience.
Sandra has mentored and inspired promotional ideas for our Business of the Month Marketing competition also, which in turn offered opportunities to expand our business Group even further. This has since created a networking platform for us, where we have successfully launched a rapidly expanding e-commerce business which has tripled it’s turnover since 2013.
This has supported our business Group greatly as with Sandra’s help, we have now built the foundations in which we can fulfil other business opportunities. All of which we are very thankful for.
A true and inspiring quirky service which you will never find elsewhere.” –
