Launch of sandrabellamy.co.uk

Hi everyone

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.

Sandra Bellamy, Writer, Owner and Founder of quirkybooks.net and beatredundancyblues.com/.co.uky

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:

  1. To be a writer
  2. To help people

I now do both of these.

I  have had:

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.

Sandra Bellamy

Making the News – Living the dream

Image representing New York Times as depicted ...

Hi Everyone

Had someone told me several years ago that I would be a blogger, a serious writer and social media user and an entrepreneur, I would have probably laughed at them and commented something like “Yeah! Get real!” Yet here I am, being all of those things and loving every single minute of it.

I was mentioned in The New York Times this week for a blog article that I had written for Exclusive HR company, click the link below to view the mention, it is under Your People: A Virtual Company’s Cultureboss.blogs.nytimes.com/2012/09/10/this-week-in-small-business-best-facebook-pages

If you want to see the article I did for Exclusive, here is the link: exclusive-thinking.blogspot.co.uk/2012/09/redundancy-advice

Kathryn Snodgrass from agimy.com has written a bog article about beatredundancyblues, check out the link: www.agimy.com/blog

I have also just launched my Facebook page for my sister company quirkybooks.net. Here is the link below: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Quirkybooksnet/144394649036836

If you love writing and haven’t yet read my writing blog, to take a look at: quirkybooks.wordpress.com

Q: So how do quirkybooks.net and beatredundancyblues work together?

A: quirkybooks.net is currently a basic website about me and my writing. Over the next few months you will see it unravelling into an e-book store in front of your eyes and I plan to have several books written over time, some of which will specifically help people who are redundant to get back into work. As with writing anything, it all takes time and I hope you can join me on my journey – Who knows, maybe one day you will be part of my book of how it all happened and how it can happen for you too.

In the meantime – stay positive
