Break Through The Barriers of Redundancy

Break Through The Barriers of Redundancy.

BREAK THROUGH THE BARRIERS OF REDUNDANCY BLOG BOOK TOUR BEGINS:

 

A gigantic Shout Out of thanks to Al Forbes from http://kattermonran.com for being the first blog stop on my Blog Book Tour, it’s much appreciated.

 

I am now a published Author of Break Through The Barriers Of Redundancy To Get Back Into Work -An A-Z ‘How To’ Guide. Available to buy on Amazon Kindle.

http://www.amazon.co.uk/BREAK-THROUGH-BARRIERS-REDUNDANCY-GUIDE-ebook/dp/B0128RWB5O

This book is different to any other redundancy or job-seeking book on the market, because it takes a holistic view of redundancy that is about how to deal with the initial grief and depression that comes with redundancy, and use redundancy as an opportunity for reflection and a time to go back to the roots of who you are and what you were born to do, before all of the ‘noise’ of life got in the way, such as marriage, kids, and mortgage; to discover your dream job and lifestyle, and help you to get it. It also explains how to deal with the practicalities of job-hunting, CV and cover letter writing, and how to answer tough interview questions. Plus, it also has a whole chapter devoted to discovering if self-employment would be right for you!

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.

Exclusive Preview – Break Through The Barriers Of Redundancy Book Blurb

Hi everyone

I am still working on the final edit of my book and it is taking longer than I expected, but it will be worth the wait.

After a short break, I am working back in my day job again, and I start teaching Blogging as an aid to recovery on Monday 24th of February. I had planned to publish my book in February, depending on how long it took to edit it to a standard that I am happy with. Although I have people waiting to buy my book, I won’t compromise on quality, and I know they wouldn’t want me to. It looks likely I will publish it in March rather than February.

I now own the copyright of the book cover illustration and design, although credit still goes to my illustrator Victoria Warby for creating it. I think she has done a fantastic job.

Please note that the entire book cover is copyrighted and will be revealed in the future – For now, I can exclusively reveal the Book Blurb.

Redundant? Write The Book You Have Always Wanted To Write With NaNoWriMo

Hi Everyone

If you are redundant and have time on your hands, NaNoWriMo could be just the tonic you need, to get motivated, organised, energised, fulfilled and satisfied from the sense of achievement of writing that book you always wanted to write, but never had the time to commit to.

Back due to popular demand is guest blogger, Rochelle Melander, taking beginners through the process of preparing for NaNoWriMo. You also have the opportunity to win a signed copy of Write-A-Thon (closing date 26th November) by clicking on this Rafflecopter link: a Rafflecopter giveaway

Get entering to win now and follow Rochelle’s guide below to have a successful NaNoWriMo experience.

National Novel Writing Month gives wannabe writers the opportunity to write a 50,000-word novel in 30 days (or 26 or even 11, it’s up to you). Chris Baty started the popular program with a few friends in hopes of giving himself a deadline—the magic element that he believes stands between most writers and their finished book manuscript. For writers and wannabes all over the world, National Novel Writing Month gives them accountability, structure, and a community. If you’re interested in jumping into the National Novel Writing Month waters, here’s how to begin:

1. Sign up. Though you don’t have to officially sign up to participate, it’s going to be a whole lot more fun if you do. Visit the National Novel Writing Month site and create a profile. You’ll add author information and create your novel profile (don’t worry, no one will hold you to your working title).

2. Join your regional group. When you create your profile, be sure to specify your region. Your regional advisor (RA) will send you NaNoMail about virtual and in-person events. Your regional advisor will also let you know if your region has other ways of communicating, such as through a Facebook group or a Twitter feed.

3. Get yourself a Buddy or two. I’ve been doing NaNoWriMo for 5 years, but I didn’t win until 2009 when I got the support of buddies. Your buddies can be friends that are doing NaNoWriMo with you, acquaintances you meet at regional events, or strangers that you connect with on Twitter. Find ways to encourage each other (such as messaging on Twitter or Facebook). And you can count on this: nothing will get you inspired to write more like seeing how far behind or ahead of your buddies you are.

4. Ready, set, sprint! I’d never heard of writing sprints until I joined National Novel Writing Month. In a writing sprint, writers try to write as many words as possible in a set amount of time (such as 15 minutes). The one who amasses the most words wins. You can set up a writing sprint with a friend, at an in-person write-in or on Twitter using the hashtag, #writingsprints.

5. Write in, anyone? I’m a solitary gal: I like to exercise and write alone. But attending a few write-ins convinced me of the value of hanging out with other writers, especially when I am behind on my word count. The peer pressure keeps me in my seat writing. In addition, a group provides the opportunity to share ideas, tools, and do writing sprints. Plus, there’s always someone to watch your laptop when you need to run to the bathroom!

6. Prepare! If you want to succeed at National Novel Writing Month, make sure you do some pre-month novel planning. Create a group of characters that will sustain your interest for a month, design or borrow an intriguing setting, and give the characters a plot that will keep you awake and writing! If you need help preparing for the month, get together with some NaNoWriMo buddies for a book brainstorming party. Or, if you’re the solitary type, visit my blog. Every Wednesday since September 26, I’ve been sharing fun ways to prepare for the month-long writing challenge!

7. Get Your Bling! If you reach the coveted 50,000-word mark, don’t forget to collect your winner’s treats at the end of the month! Half the fun of participating in NaNoWriMo comes when you can collect your winner’s badges and post them on your Facebook profile. You’ll also get the opportunity to print out a winner’s certificate. Most regions also hold celebratory parties for the winners (and even the almost winners).

Oh, and one final note: have fun. National Novel Writing Month is an opportunity to let down your hair and write with abandon. Go for it!
