beatredundancyblues.co.uk Coming Soon


Hi Everyone

I am mega busy at the moment creating my beatredundancyblues.co.uk website, it will be very similar to beatredundancyblues.com with all of your favourite information pages but with a blog added for much more interaction with you. This way you can let me know what you like and what you don’t and what other help and support you need in your quest to find employment.

I realise not all of you will have been made redundant but when it’s officially launched and no longer under construction, I would still appreciate your feedback on the content.

Watch this space for the official launch of beatredundancyblues.co.uk

My web host who hosts beatredundancyblues.com has decided to stop people from using RVSiteBuilder  to build any new website by removing it from their system. As my site is built using this, I now have to get access to my site admin panel through a link. I was informed that eventually the RVSiteBuilder will be dis-continued completely. beatredundancyblues.co.uk was due to be launched at the end of this year but in light of this new challenge, I am creating it now and transferring it’s valuable information over to beatredundancyblues.co.uk. I have to do this manually and re-format it before adding it to the new WordPress.Org site for beatredundancyblues.co.uk

For those of you who are not familiar with beatredundancyblues.com and what is is about, here is an except from it:

This website is designed to give you easy access to a wealth of knowledge, experience and skills needed to survive redundancy and get back into work. No longer do you have to trawl through website after website trying to find the information you want, you can get it all here at the click of a button.

Make your job search easier by getting instant access to these sites at the click of a button. Find an area that interests you and get right to it.
This website is essential for anyone who is:

  1. Redundant
  2. Unemployed
  3. Changing Career
  4. Job Hunting
  5. Lacking In Direction
  6. Wanting Motivation
  7. Needing Help
  8. Looking For Support

I have to say that using WordPress.org compared to the .com version has been far more challenging than I thought it would be. What experience have you had with the .org version compared to the .com? Have you got any advice or hints and tips on how to get the best out of using the .org version?

To those of you who have given me blog awards recently, I will officially acknowledge them in the future but it will be at a later date that I had originally planned. Thanks in advance, I very much appreciate your support.

On thursday this week, I am going to an awards ceremony by the police to be awarded a Good Citizens Award. I feel honoured and humbled to be getting the award and thought I would let you know.

In the New York Times – A Writer’s Dream Come True


Hi Everyone

I just had to write a quick post as I am sooo excited. I am mentioned in the New York Times with a link to the blog post article I did for Exclusive HR company about being a manager, leader, teacher or coach. Here is the link to the blog post: exclusive-thinking.blogspot.co.uk/2012/09/redundancy-advice.

This is a Writer’s dream come true, to be talked about in the New York Times and recognised for a good article is truly amazing.  Here is the link to the New York Times article that I am mentioned in: boss.blogs.nytimes.com/2012/09/10/this-week-in-small-business-best-facebook-pages

As you may or may not know, besides writing, I am setting up a website called beatredundancyblues.com and beatredundancyblues.co.uk to help people who are redundant to get back into work. These have not yet been launched, so if you have clicked on them and are feeling a bit disappointed that there is nothing there, it will be worth the wait.

In the meantime, just to wet your appetite, here is a link to my redundancy blog site: beatredundancyblues.wordpress.com

I believe I am able to successfully help people who are redundant to get back into work because during my 15 year career in retail, 7 of which were spent within management roles, I have been made redundant twice and I know first hand how hard it is to battle with your emotions and to deal with the financial impact and practicalities that you need to face. I have also been able to work my way back up the career ladder. In my management roles I have interviewed, recruited, trained and coached staff and I have been through the recruitment process as a potential employee, so I have experienced both sides of the fence and that experience I can use to write books to help people to get back into work, as well as offer services to inspire people to achieve their dreams.

Thanks for your support to encourage me in my dream.

Five Fantastic Reasons To Put A Smile On Your Face!


Hi Everyone

Staying positive in this current economic climate can be extremely difficult, especially when the daily news seems to bring nothing but doom and gloom. However, one simple thing could help you on your way to becoming a more positive person.

Smiling, simple but true!

  1. Smiling, puts other people at ease, it lets them know you are approachable.
  2. A smile can break the ice with a stranger and lead to new found friendships.
  3. Your usual tone of voice is lowered whilst on the telephone, smiling on the telephone allows your tone to become higher and sound more welcoming.
  4. Even if you are feeling fed up, depressed and really don’t want to smile, try it, a little bit at a time, you will be surprised how focusing on something else which contradicts your current frame of mind, could actually be a step in helping you to get out of the poor frame of mind you are in.
  5. If someone smiles back at you, it will make you happier and increase your confidence.
Keep smiling.

Have You Been Made Redundant? – New Website


Hi Everyone.

I know it has been some time since we last had a catch up but I wanted you to know I am currently working many hours composing a brand new website. – beatredundancyblues.com

This website has been specifically designed for people who have been, or who are going to be, made redundant.

It is also for people who are currently:

  • Unemployed
  • Looking to change jobs
There will be information on :
  • Job Sites to visit
  • Counselling services
  • Interview advice
  • Organisation and time management
  • Motivation techniques
  • And so much more
With over 14 years retail experience, over 7 of which have been in Management roles, I have been made redundant twice and successfully worked my way back up the ladder.
When it comes to employment and recruitment, I have seen both sides, I know what to look out for, how to target a C.V and Cover letter that stands out from the crowd and what are big interview no no’s.
All this and more, will be at beatredundancyblues.com, COMING SOON.
I am sure you will agree it will be well worth the wait.
Write soon.
