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.
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!
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?
It’s easy to think that out of nowhere people seem to have overnight success but usually this simply isn’t true. It takes a lot of hard work, determination and persistence to get where you want to be in life and I can tell you that it is worth it.
If you click on the blog link below, it explains the steps you must take on the road to success.
Until next time, stay positive.
As you probably know http://www.beatredundancyblues.com is your one stop resource for redundancy. As well as the practical aspects of redundancy it also covers health and wellbeing including stress, anxiety and depression.
You may like to know that I do voluntary work as a Health Buddy for CSV (Community Service Volunteers) in association with BBC Radio Devon. We promote health messages, learn from health specialists and encourage the 5 ways to wellbeing:
- Be Active
- Take Notice
On Wednesday 10th of March, I went to a CSV Health Buddy celebration of music and activities from local refugees who are being looked after by Devon and Cornwall Refugee Support.
I could not help but take notice of the variety of talent amongst the refugees. There were lots of activities including singing, sports, character making out of carrots and foods from their country. I learnt more about them and the foods they eat. People from different backgrounds connected and it was lovely of them to give up their afternoon to entertain and teach us.
At this event I was pleasantly surprised to be presented with a bouquet of flowers and a Certificate of Achievement for helping a distressed and vulnerable person as part of my role as a CSV (Community Service Volunteer) Health Buddy.
I was even more thrilled to be told that I had been chosen to represent the CSV organisation at their 50th anniversary celebration, to be held at St James’s Palace in London on Monday 15th of July 2013. In the presence of Her Majesty the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh.
This is a once in a lifetime opportunity that I feel incredibly honoured to be chosen for.
Redundancy can make you feel deflated and powerless. Take back the control in your life by discovering what you were born to do and make it happen for yourself.
I am living my dreams and I want you to be too.
My apologies for not blogging for a while. I have been very poorly with a chest infection and virus and not had the strength to even write. As a writer, it has been very difficult for me not to be able to practice my craft for a while .
Even though I am still not 100% better, I felt I had to share this inspirational blog post about turning your hobby into a business, courtesy of Carolyn Trafford from reflectionscoachingblog.wordpress.com
I am turning my writing website quirkybooks.net into an e-Book store later this year. Amongst the books available, will be ones to help you to get back into work. If I can turn my passion into my dream job, then so can you.
