Get off your arse too – Business book review

Hi everyone

If you are redundant and thinking of starting your own business or of trying a new approach to life, this book may be for you.

Voted best business book 2011 by Brad Burton’s wife, Get of your arse too , is a no-holds barred, tell-it-like-it-is, book about taking action to succeed in all aspects of your life. Brad speaks in his plain talking no-nonsense, meeting-a-mate-down-the-pub voice, making it easy to relate to whatever he is talking about.

Brad Burton Get off your arse too

In this book you will discover:

  • Brad’s own story and what propelled him to move his life forward, both personally and professionally.
  • How you can make positive changes to make more progress in your life and career.
  • That as you are your business, being true to yourself in all aspects of your business, is essential for it to succeed.
  • Ruling fear, instead of letting fear rule you, is a basic principal in getting ahead of whatever is holding you back in your life and career.
  • The only way to live your life to its full potential, is your own unique way and only you can lead the way to what you want.
  • It’s up to you to rely on yourself to make things work.
  • Your success and happiness depends on you.
  • There are no short cuts, running your own business means work, work, work, not a quick-fix cash machine.
  • What results you get depend on what you put into your life and your business.  It’s up to you to work hard, to put the hours in and get off your arse to make things happen.

One of my favourite quotes from the book is on page 5. “There is nothing worse than working for years only to realise that your ladder to success is leaning against the wrong wall.”

In short, Brad continually emphasises throughout the book, that it’s you who must take charge of your own destiny by really thinking about what you want and want really makes you happy. You must then face your fears, learn new stuff, make changes and get of your arse to achieve it.

If you want an unconventional business book to read, or a fresh approach to life and business, then make sure this one is on your list.

Stay positive

When Opportunity Knocks – Don’t Close The Door

Hi everyone

Are you currently unemployed? Do you think you would like to run your own business? Are you asking yourself, have I got what it takes to become a self-employed businessman/business woman?

If you answered yes to one or more of these questions, there is no better opportunity of finding out if you are suitable to run your own business, than enquiring about the New Enterprise Scheme and attending an Enterprise Club Start-up Training Course. To learn more about what the course has to offer, read my guest blog article “Have you got the guts to run your own business?’ on Sage One uk.sageone.com/2013/08/23/guts-to-run-your-own-business. The course is free and if you don’t want to go on the New Enterprise Allowance after you have completed the course, you don’t have to but you will receive lots of invaluable information that is vital to starting your own business. When opportunity knocks, don’t close the door.

As always, terms and conditions to attend the course and be able to have the New Enterprise Allowance, do apply.

Let me know if the blog article for Sage One is helpful?

Motivatingdaily - Your source for daily motivation

My job often requires being up pretty early or working pretty late. While this fact can be tiresome, I always look forward to new tasks and am generally more fit on work mornings, because I am grateful for my job and like the work I do, a lot.

It is important to chose a job that motivates you.As long as you have to motivate yourself to get the job done, you have clearly chosen the wrong job (Or you are in a situation where you have to get over some obstacles in order to reach your dream job, never mind that)

Find a job that you do with passion and enthusiasm, a job that motivates you to get up early, work hard, work long hours and generally put a lot of good effort into, and you have made great progress on your path to happiness.

Choose a job you…

beatredundancyblues.co.uk Coming Soon

Hi Everyone

I am mega busy at the moment creating my beatredundancyblues.co.uk website, it will be very similar to beatredundancyblues.com with all of your favourite information pages but with a blog added for much more interaction with you. This way you can let me know what you like and what you don’t and what other help and support you need in your quest to find employment.

Watch this space for the official launch of beatredundancyblues.co.uk

My web host who hosts beatredundancyblues.com has decided to stop people from using RVSiteBuilder  to build any new website by removing it from their system. As my site is built using this, I now have to get access to my site admin panel through a link. I was informed that eventually the RVSiteBuilder will be dis-continued completely. beatredundancyblues.co.uk was due to be launched at the end of this year but in light of this new challenge, I am creating it now and transferring it’s valuable information over to beatredundancyblues.co.uk. I have to do this manually and re-format it before adding it to the new WordPress.Org site for beatredundancyblues.co.uk

For those of you who are not familiar with beatredundancyblues.com and what is is about, here is an except from it:

This website is designed to give you easy access to a wealth of knowledge, experience and skills needed to survive redundancy and get back into work. No longer do you have to trawl through website after website trying to find the information you want, you can get it all here at the click of a button.

Make your job search easier by getting instant access to these sites at the click of a button. Find an area that interests you and get right to it.
This website is essential for anyone who is:

  1. Redundant
  2. Unemployed
  3. Changing Career
  4. Job Hunting
  5. Lacking In Direction
  6. Wanting Motivation
  7. Needing Help
  8. Looking For Support

I have to say that using WordPress.org compared to the .com version has been far more challenging than I thought it would be. What experience have you had with the .org version compared to the .com? Have you got any advice or hints and tips on how to get the best out of using the .org version?

On thursday this week, I am going to an awards ceremony by the police to be awarded a Good Citizens Award. I feel honoured and humbled to be getting the award and thought I would let you know.

What Does Success Mean To You?

Hi Everyone

Success comes in all forms, shapes and sizes.

In order to be successful, you have to first work out:

  • What success means to you?
  • What success will do for you?
  • What you envisage success to look like?

Only when you are able to answer these 3 questions, will you be able to map out your own path to success.

To you, success could mean:

  • Owning your own home
  • Being able to put food on the table
  • Running your own business
  • Writing your life story
  • Having a family of your own
  • Having a good network of friends for support
  • Working in your dream job
  • Fulfilling your ambitions
  • Getting up in the morning pain-free
  • Being able to create things

Or it could be a combination of all, or some, of the above.

Whilst you are redundant, it is a great time to discover what success means to you, because if you don’t, you will never feel satisfied but feel like there is something missing from your life or that you are a failure.

Knowing what success means to you, is the first step on your path to achieving it.

Don’t waste any more time feeling like a failure but instead put your time and energy into writing a list of what success means to you and then prioritise them in the order of most importance and set goals to achieve each and every one of them. As you do this, you will be growing into your own success and moving along the path to lead a more fulfilling existence and a happier you.

So what are you waiting for?

Until next time, stay positive.

Sandra Bellamy
