Finally, after weeks and weeks of painstaking hours of work, learning how to use more of WordPress.org’s tools, namely widgets and plugins, I have launched my all singing, all dancing, newly designed beatredundancyblues.com site. I was thrilled that my web host technician said it looks amazing, and I probably know more than him about using WordPress.org to design my site. This website is advertised on the front cover of my new Break through the barriers of redundancy book and it needed to be updated before I upload the book to CreateSpace.

Please check out my new beatredundancyblues.com site and tell me what you think.

This is my first post on that site:-

Welcome to the launch of the newly designed beatredundancyblues.com, taking your job seeking to another level entirely.

Here you will find access to multiple job sites, recruitment sites and course sites, from within the one site. All from your home page, in a sleek and easy to use layout.

No longer do you have to trawl through hundreds of sites to get to what you want, it’s right here for you at the click of a mouse.

Beat redundancy blues, takes the hunt out of your job hunting, by researching the web for you, leaving you more time to concentrate on what matters most; applying for jobs, joining recruitment agencies, and enroling on a course to expand your skillset and your chances of landing a new career.

Take Back Control Of Your Life

Hi everyone

It’s important not to live your life by others, live it by what you believe is right for you.

Plenty of people will try to tell you what job you should be doing and how you should live your life. From now on, you must take control.

Redundancy can make you feel out of control and the way to get it back is for you to take ownership of the situation. Establish your needs and wants right now and in the future. Make a plan on paper about how you are going to get these needs me. Then, you need to start taking action. Write down each day and week, exactly what your goals are. At the end of that day or week, tick off what you have achieved or carry it forward to the next day or week until you have accomplished it. You should have 5 lists:

  1. Emotional needs – Upset, angry, depressed and want to feel better. Solution, see a counsellor or talk to family and friends.
  2. Personal needs – Raise your self-confidence. Solution, join a support group, try new things, buy new clothes.
  3. Professional needs – Need up-to-date skills for jobs. Solution, take a course to update skills, get work experience.
  4. Financial needs – No income. Solution, get benefits sorted and set a budget for shopping.
  5. Practical needs – To make job searches as quick and easy as possible. Solution, turn a room into an office for job hunting and visit http://www.beatredundancyblues.com and http://www.beatredundancyblues.co.uk to get access to Job Sites, Recruitment Sites and Courses Sites from within the one site.

Remember, these are your needs, nobody else’s. If you ask other people what they think you need and want, you are not in control and it defeats the purpose, that is to put you ‘back in the driving seat of your life.’

After you have ticked off each achievement, you still need to acknowledge these successes in your diary. If you do this as positive reinforcement, your subconscious will realise the progress you are making and it will be more motivated to take conscious action.

Until next time

Stay positive

Launch of beatredundancyblues.co.uk

Hi everyone

I am pleased to announce that beatredundancyblues.co.uk is now officially launched.

beatredundancyblues.co.uk is very similar in content to beatredundancyblues.com with access to Job Sites, Recruitment Sites and Courses Sites, from within the one site. The difference with the .co.uk version, is there is much more opportunity for interaction with you. Let me know what you like about the site and any further help and support you need through your comments and feedback.

As you may be aware from my last post, I recently went to London on Monday 15th of July to meet Her Majesty the Queen and I had the opportunity to speak to her. You can read the full story on my writing blog at http://www.quirkybooks.wordpress.com This was for the CSV 50th Jubilee Celebration. I started working as a Health Buddy for Community Service Volunteers whilst being unemployed and look at where it has led to.

I know redundancy can be difficult and if anyone had said to me when I was first made redundant, that I would be meeting and speaking with HM the Queen in a few years time, I would have laughed and not believed them. When I was made redundant for the second time, my attitude towards what is possible in life, began to change and now I believe that anything is possible. The more I believe that, the more impossibles do become possible. It all starts with baby steps of stretching yourself, your knowledge and your experience. My Grandma says there is no such word as can’t and if you don’t believe there to be, then that is true. Start believing that your dreams can become a reality and then take steps to make it happen.

Stay positive
