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

I Love My Writing Because


I love my writing because it doesn’t lie to me, it doesn’t cheat on me. 

I love my writing because it gives as much as it takes.

I love my writing because it makes me feel happy, fulfilled, and like I’ve achieved something good, even great, in my life!

I love my writing because it makes fantasy a reality!

I love my writing because it brings me closer to myself.

I love my writing because it brings me joy, peace and happiness.

I love my writing because it brings out the best in me.

I love my writing because it makes fairytales a reality.

I would love to be married to my writing because I 100% love it; I know it is fullly committed to me, it brings out the best in me and insists I pay it lots of attention, more so than the housework I hate. It doesn’t moan or complain if the washing up is not done and doesn’t expect me to do it as it would rather spend quality time with me.

Me and my writing are 100% wrapped up in each other, 100% into each other and 100% love each other. One cannot exist and thrive without the other. We are wrapped up in an eternal bliss together, forever and always.

I love my writing because it’s a reflection of me and it’s a part of my soul forever.

I love my writing because it’s always been there for me and never lets me down. Through sad times, happy times, good times and bad times, it’s always been true to me.

I love my writing because it enables me to change lives and fulfil my dreams.

I love my writing because it loves me!
Always stay true to your quirky self and your writing, because it’s worth it and it values your worth in return!

What Can You Do First?


Angel after being dried from her first bath!
Angel has just had a bath for the first time and is now dry!

Doing anything for the first time can be scary but as I reflect back on this year to date, I have done a lot of firsts and will do more next year.

Angel had her first bath a couple of weeks ago and the bathing went surprisingly well – the hair drying took a lot longer and she decided to repeatedly try to climb under or over my arm at lightening speed. It must have taken twice as long as it should but because she is so gorgeous and so funny, it didn’t really matter because I love her so much. It will be her first Christmas soon, baby’s first Christmas is always good and a memorable one!!

So my firsts for this year:

  • I succeeded in learning how to use Photoshop so now I create all of my own T-Shirt designs and do the artwork for them.
  • I got tiered up to the next quantity of T-Shirt designs so I can sell more at one time on Amazon.com
  • I wrote and published my ‘How To Get Started With Twitter, Get Going and Get Growing A Step By Step Guide” book.
  • My Asexualise My Asexual Life YouTube channel has grown to over 150 subscribers.
  • I interviewed over 40 asexuals for my Asexual Perspectives, Love Life And Sex, ACElebration Of Asexual Diversity book and I am trying hard to get the Kindle version published before Christmas.
  • I completed a Marketing course (still got to action all the modules now though).
  • I learnt how to use IMovie and can now create my own videos.
  • I did an’ Inspire With Video Materclass’, so I can create my own inspirational videos.
  • I completed a “Your Next Bold Move” course at the beginning of this year and it helped me to plan and be more productive for the rest of the year.

What first have you had this year (2016) and what firsts are coming for you next year?

Stay quirky

Celebrating Amazon UK Promoting My Book For Me


This is a Writer’s/Author’s Dream come true. Today I am celebrating the fact that Amazon UK is promoting my book for me, not only in its third email to me, but also in the subject line and it’s top of its list. Thank you Amazon UK. http://amzn.to/1U4yP0q

I have learnt a lot about Kindle publishing since publishing my Break through The Barriers Of Redundancy book and had a strategy for what I was doing this time and it is really paying off. I write not just for sales, but because I love writing. I have kept this book low price because I want as many people as possible to benefit from it and get my name out into the world more as a Writer. I couldn’t be more happy. Sure, I barely get anything from this book after Amazon take about 65-70% of it, but this book is not about that for me. This book is the path to my future and proof that you can earn money from Kindle books and doing what you love – it’s now my job to get better and better at it! And you know I will, because it is my destiny to help others through the written and spoken word. Whenever you have a down moment, remember a big up will come along soon. Keep going and keep doing what you love, always.

Stay quirky and write soon
