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!!

5.0 out of 5 stars – before there was the relative wealth of information and acknowledgement that there is today – I think this book is a great idea

I’m writing this as someone who realised and rationalised his own asexuality a while back, before there was the relative wealth of information and acknowledgement that there is today – I think this book is a great idea and could be beneficial for many reasons. A few of the contributors have found ways to explain in such relatable terms, something that may be a struggle to put across to somebody who may be unfamiliar of asexuality. Any young people who may feel unsure of themselves or those just beginning to explore the possibility that they may be asexual should find something that rings true to them in this book. I’m sure it will be a helpful tool to them, showing them that many others have had this experience. Or allowing them to find a way to tell a friend or family member with clarity that ‘I am ace, and what that means is…’.
And for older aces, or even those just curious about asexuality- taken as a collection of experiences, it’s interesting to discover the common ground and massive variations across all the entries. For some it’s an intrinsic part of their personality and for others it’s a mundane fact they barely give a thought to.
If it had been around when I was younger it would have provided a certain amount of relief to come across this book and I hope it will do that for others now it’s here.
I have also changed my book cover wording to now read Asexual Perspectives: 47 Asexual Stories: Love, Life and Sex, ACElebration of Asexual Diversity. ( I added the stories part.)

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
