Business Showcase South West – With Dragon’s Den Inspirational Investment Winner at only 18, Jordan Daykin !


Dragon's Den Winner!!
Me, Sandra Bellamy, with Jordan Daykin at BSSW, Dragon’s Den Investment Winner at 18 years old, in 2014!!

I recently went to the Business Showcase South West in Bristol #BSSW. There were lots of seminars throughout the day, including one that featured Jordan Daykin, who won investment from Deborah Meaden in the hit Entrepreneur TV Show Dragon’s Den! He was only 18 when he won that investment in 2014 – making him only 21 years now and his business GripIt – is now worth over £14,000,000. It was awesome to hear his inspirational story!!

I did a live 5 minute pitch to 2 people, to be a TedX Speaker about Asexuality at the next TedX Bristol event in November this year. I already applied with a 1 minute video pitch, 100 word pitch and a bio! And my application has not yet made it or been declined. If you don’t know what TedX is, it is a local Ted talk – or rather talk(s) on stage, on a particular subject that a person has experience or knowledge about – which often makes them seen as an expert. The last Bristol TedX in 2015, had all 1800 seats sold out and about 2000 attended. It is the biggest TedX talk in the UK and possibly in Europe. All speakers are voluntary and the money goes back into a bigger and better show for next time. If I got it, it would be truly life changing for both me and asexuals around the globe – especially since some Ted talks are viewed on YouTube in their thousands and millions. Keep your fingers, toes, and everything crossed, that I make the final cut!! Pitching to be a speaker continues until July – so I have to wait and see! I know at least I tried and will have no regrets as I have done all I can to get through, and although I think I will be good at speaking on stage, in front of that many people is something I will need to be brave to do – but I am a warrior, so it will all be good!! And let’s face it, I was born to be on stage really!! Just have to push myself to do it and go for it!!

If you want to try something in life and have been thinking about it for a while – I say, go for it!! Life is too short!! Keep writing and stay quirky – always xx

Oh and if you have not got a copy of my Asexual Perspectives book yet, you should!! It is great to know about all sexualities because you never know who you will meet that may be the love of your life and if they are Asexual, it is really important to understand them!!

ASEXUAL PERSPECTIVES, LOVE, LIFE and SEX, ACElebration of ASEXUAL DIVERSITY! Book!
ASEXUAL PERSPECTIVES, LOVE, LIFE and SEX, ACElebration of ASEXUAL DIVERSITY!What is Asexuality and what is the Asexual Spectrum 

In broad terms Asexuality is the lack of sexual attraction, but what does this actually mean for those who identify with this sexual orientation? And what do asexuals really think of love, life and sex?

Whilst all asexuals have one thing in common – the lack of sexual attraction towards a specific person, we are all different in our likes, needs, wants and dislikes. This can make fitting into the asexual spectrum and finding a suitable relationship difficult.

Right now, there are a number of myths about asexuality and stereotypes – even within the asexual community, about what asexuals do and do not like, should and should not do, and these need to be addressed and broken through!

If you identify as asexual do you –

Struggle to have a voice in this sexualized world?
Feel alone?
Misunderstood?
Misplaced?
Broken?
Left out?
Not recognised?
Have no one to relate to?
Find it difficult to find others like you?
Feel like everyone is speaking a foreign language where sex is concerned?

Or are you unsure of your identity and sometimes get confused and you want to know what asexuals really think of Love, Life and Sex, and what experiences they have had or are having; and how they manage their relationships? If so, then look no further than this book. In this book you will discover asexuals who feel just like you.

In this book I will reveal my own asexual perspective and personal story as well as perspectives from 46 asexuals around the globe; dispelling myths and breaking stereotypes; sharing their own personal journey to help you in yours and with a surprising over-riding message!

In this book you will:

•Learn the asexual perspectives of Aromantics; Heteroromantics; Homoromantics; Panromantics; Grey Aces; Demi-sexual; Biromantic; Agender; Transgender; Polyamorous and many more.

•Uncover Asexuals’ deepest fears, concerns and worries about being asexual.

•Find out possible reasons why, in general, society does not accept asexuality as a sexual orientation in its own right and what we can do about this to change the world!

•Discover what asexuals really believe are the differences between sexual attraction, sexual desire and arousal.

•Find out what asexuals really think of nudity; porn; masturbation; BDSM and kinks.

•Discover what it feels like to have sex as an asexual and how to cope with the sexualized world that we live in.

•Find out what asexuals think about living together, about marriage and about having kids.

•Discover what an ideal asexual relationship would look like and whether asexuals believe a relationship with a sexual would be fair or not.

•Uncover the positives about being asexual.

•Find out what advice asexuals would give to a younger version of themselves regarding asexuality and what advice they would give to others who are just discovering they may be asexual.

I feel truly blessed that all interviewees have been willing to open up and share their most intimate moments, thoughts, feelings and emotions with you. What you are about to read is unique, amazing, interesting, sometimes candidly humorous, fascinating and insightful. This is their story, now it’s their time to tell it.

If you have resonated with any of these points and you want to know more, please invest in this book and buy now on Amazon.com http://amzn.to/2kyL22x or Amazon.co.uk  http://amzn.to/2k9asY1

We may be small in numbers, but we can still make a huge difference to the world at large and celebrate our diversity.

Asexualise.com is Live and Launched – New Asexual Perspectives Book is Coming!


It’s been a very busy 10 days. There was chestnut’s birthday on 22nd of April – as pictured in this new Asexualise.com  website launch Pic – I thought it made for an interesting pic as did the balloons in this video – it was my birthday on the 24th – I tried to post some pics from my phone, but they haven’t even saved in my drafts by the look of it, so I will have to go through that process again. I had a blast – which I will tell you about with the pics in a new post.

So I launched my new Asexualise.com site which I had been shouting about on this ‘Asexualise My Asexual Life’ channel that this video is taken from. It is a website with products, resources and services, for asexuals, and also features a blog – my first ever blog about asexuality! It also features my ‘Asexualise’ brand of T Shirts – yes, I design my own T Shirts on Amazon.com and Redbubble (although I paid a designer to do the artwork on some of them). Here is one of my Top Sellers that has a 5 Star Review …..

I am going to be creating T Shirts for Writer’s in the future and will post about them on here at a later date so watch this space. I also have two other brand of T Shirts too – Including Quirky T Shirt – www.quirkytshirt.com I have some site changes in the future so it’s all very exciting stuff.

I have been to Devon Business Expo this week and watched webinars, videos, and been reading for training for my businesses. Please remember how much I love you and that I don’t forget you, just sorry I have been slow to blog on here and the fact I am not stopping by much. As I write this, it is before I go to work in my day job on a Bank Holiday Monday, and I have to jump in the shower in a minute!

My Twitter book is doing really well – if you are a beginner to Twitter or have started and have no clue what you are doing, please check it out, it is still only $1.40 or 99p and has a 5 Star review, you won’t be disappointed.

I am working hard interviewing Asexuals from around the globe for my new Asexual Perspectives, Love Life and Sex, ACElebration of Diversity book – It is a huge deal to many asexuals, including me. It is going to show just how awesome we are, and hopefully help those with a sexual orientation to understand us better – as I have had sex in the past and have highly sexual friends, I think I can help to bridge the understanding gap, between both. This book should help with this, and will be an interesting read for asexuals and asexuals too, I have an interesting www.facebook.com/acexualise page for more info about what is going on with all of the asexual stuff I do . Love is love and I love you – remember that! xx And stay quirky!

Exeter Christmas Light Switch On!

I love robots and was really happy to see this one before the Exeter Christmas Light Switch On Thursday 19th of November at 6.30pm. It was a low key event this year, due to the recent attacks in Paris.

I had two hours sleep from 19th/20th night/morning as I was working hard to finish creating and publishing my first ever Asexualise Your Life – What’s happening? Newsletter. If you know anyone who is asexual or who wants to know more, they can sign-up to my monthly newsletter by clicking on this link http://eepurl.com/bGNW2P This newsletter is fabulous for taking my writing skills to yet another level.

I also have an asexualise Facebook page www.facebook.com/acexualise and I am on Twitter www.twitter.com/asexualise My Facebook page is on 77 Likes and 281 post reach, since creating it during the evening of the 17th. I am having a bit of time off work on Monday 23rd of November, because I am at a small asexual meet-up that day, which I organised. It’s my third that I have arranged and been to this year. I have been getting messages from asexuals to say that I am inspiring, helping them to stop being so confused, bold and brave and awesome. This is the reason I must keep doing what I am doing, because I really want to help others.

As you have probably guessed, it’s hard for me to find time to blog, especially as I have an even higher workload now, but I will not stop blogging on here for the world.

Stay quirky

Asexual Coming Out Very Personal Story


Today I posted this LinkedIn Blog article below, on LinkedIn. I wanted to share it with you to give you a better understanding of why I am committed to helping other asexuals. On Tuesday, I braved telling the world, my very personal asexual coming out story. It was hard to do, but I really want to help others. I ummed and arrrr -ed about whether to put it on this blog, because you have never seen this side of my life, or known some of these details about my past, but I share everything else with you, so here I am in this video, stripped bare in the asexual sense.

For far too long many Asexuals have been living in fear of coming out about their sexuality, due to society’s pressures to conform to a majority sexual population. That’s all about to change!

This week is Asexual Awareness Week; and the official launch of my brand new Asexualise My Asexual Life YouTube channel; to Empower and Enhance Your Asexual Life – with a brand new Asexualise.com website in the pipeline. Once created, Asexualise.com will have products, services and resources for Asexuals. The main product line will be Asexual T-Shirts, that will be exclusive Asexual designs created by me and sold on Amazon, with links directly from Asexualise.com to my Amazon store. My designer has already got to work on the first two designs, so I am super excited about that.

I run the Asexual Business, Gurus and Entrepreneurs group on Facebook; putting Asexuality and business firmly together on the map together. As a Heteroromantic  Asexual myself, I know the difficulties Asexuals face in a world where sex seems like everything, and they feel like they don’t fit in. But they don’t need to fit in, they were born to stand out for all the right reasons, and I am here to give them a voice in the world.

If you are Asexual and interested in finding out more, check out my new YouTube channel to find out why I created this channel, and hear my very personal story.

This is an excerpt from the back matter of my Break Through The Barriers Of Redundancy To Get Back Into Work – An A-Z ‘How To’ guide; talking about my Quirky Coaching service:

Being a confident heteroromantic asexual, Sandra has found that others who are asexual sometimes prefer to be mentored and coached by someone who understands their orientation and how it impacts their life or business. She is part of many online asexual groups and runs the Asexual Business, Gurus and Entrepreneurs group on Facebook. This group gives those who are asexual and have an interest in business, creativity and the arts; a place to express themselves, to make new friends, share like-minded ideas, share their work and interests, get feedback and support, and help each other’s businesses to grow.

I line with my Break Through Barriers attitude and Embrace Your Quirky philosophy; my aim is to have asexuals and sexuals live along side each other in harmony. Even though I am asexual, personally don’t like sex, and have asexual friends, there will always be place in my life and business for sexual people and I have many sexual and highly sexual friends. I have organised local asexual meet-ups and plan to meet more asexuals in the future.

If you are asexual, check out my Asexual Business, Gurus and Entrepreneurs group on Facebook, and tell me how do you asexualise your life? If you are not asexual, thank you for taking the time to read this article, I look forward to working with you in one of my other World Of Quirky Capacities …. and before you go, there will be inspirational T-Shirts exclusively designed by me, to purchase on Amazon soon, so don’t feel left out, there is something for everyone at world Of Quirky.

I would love to read your comments. Until next time, write soon, and embrace your quirky.

Sandra
