In this video, me and Angel talk about living the life only you were born to lead! And we wish you much February love.
Today I am celebrating my 6 years blogging anniversary on my other blog – Quirky Books . If you have never visited it before – please check it out!! Quirky Books is where my writing and blogging journey began and I originally set it up to help me practice my craft of writing, find my writer’s voice, and to help other writer’s to write better. This year, I have gone back to those roots.
I want you to be one of the first to know, that coming soon, I am changing my www.quirkyacademy.com site into an online education training centre for Entrepreneurs, Start-ups and Creatives. So if you fall into any of these categories of interests then expect courses to come, to give you the skills require in all aspects of these, taking your carer to a whole new level.
Stay positive to help beat redundancy blues.
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.” –
