I would like to announce the launch of sandrabellamy.co.uk
This is a sample taken from the About Sandra Bellamy/Home page.
Welcome to the website of Sandra Bellamy.
A Writer and Redundancy Breakthrough and Employment Success Specialist by night, a part-time Tutor for the Recovery Learning Community, a full-time Fitted Bedroom Specialist in John Lewis by day and a volunteer Health Buddy. Sandra Bellamy has a range of skills, experience, knowledge and expertise that she loves sharing with others to advance their own career and their own learning.
Sandra’s life changing moment came when she was made redundant for the second time in 2009.
“When I was made redundant for the second time in my career, it changed my life. At first I felt my gut was wrenched from me, worried about my future, concerned about finances, bewildered and lost, I just didn’t know what I was going to do.
A couple of weeks later I began to feel relieved that it was over. I thought about the negative aspects of the job I had just left and focused on what I could change about my life and my future career to make me happy. Rather than just being in a job that I was good at, I began to see and understand what job I was meant to be doing. I assessed –
What I was passionate about?
What made me happy?
What did I ultimately want to do with my life?
I came up with two answers:
- To be a writer
- To help people
I now do both of these.
I have had:
- An article published in Country Small Holding.
- A Star letter published in Freelance Market news.
- Two articles published in the Be Involved Devon newsletter
- A blog article published on the Sage One website: Have you got the guts to run your own business?
- A blog article published on the Pay Justice website: How can women make men pay for injustices -16 warning signs of constructive dismissal
- A blog article published on the HR company Exclusive website, that got a mention in The New York Times: Manager, Leader, Teacher or Coach?
I have written the course content for ‘Blogging as an aid to recovery – How to start a WordPress.com blog’ that I am teaching for the Recovery Learning Community.
My blog about writing is at quirkybooks.wordpress.com. I write all of the content for beatredundancyblues.com and beatredundancyblues.co.uk. and beatredundancyublues.wordpress.com. I have my own author website at quirkybooks.net that is currently under construction and I am working on my first two e-Books.
I help people who are redundant to get back into work via my two websites beatredundancyblues.com and beatredundancyblues.co.uk. These are free to use resources, that have access to lots of job sites, recruitment sites and courses sites from within the one site. They have a wealth of other useful information, help and advice. Including about job interviews, time management and health and wellbeing. beatredundancyblues likes to take a holistic approach to redundancy and getting back into work.
Redundancy changed my whole outlook on life and now I am a much happier and more fulfilled person, who believes in myself and what I was born to do. I do not profess to be the best, just to enjoy what I do and to help others as best as I can.”
Keep smiling, keep being positive, believe in yourself and that good things can happen for you.

You may be redundant from work but not from your life.
Nourish yourself with positivity, things you enjoy doing and celebrate your successes however small.
The more you nourish yourself, the more you will blossom into a beautiful tree of your own life.
When you are initially made redundant, it can be hard to think about your future, to come up with a plan for it, and to set goals. However, in order to move forward with your life, that is exactly what you need to do. Here is some good advice on how to make goals stick.
Those of you that know me personally will also know that I’m not adverse to getting out a camera at the weekend and tagging along with my husband Brett Trafford to photograph a wedding. We were at a wedding last Friday and it started me thinking about how working with your goals is a bit like getting married, yet it so much easier to divorce our goals than our spouses.
My VVW approach to goal setting is simple and could help prevent you from divorcing your goals.
Vows – Make a commitment to yourself as you would your future spouse. During the ceremony the couple promised so much to each other and are unlikely to break them. Ask yourself why you find it so easy to break promises to yourself?
Value – When entering into a marriage we value the thoughts and opinions of our loved one. Its equally important…
