Volunteer and Market Yourself…Remarkably

“Remarkable Marketable Mehelps you share your remarkable gifts volunteering, making you more marketable along the way.

By Jean Robb

I didn’t have the best childhood. We didn’t have much, so if you needed something you had to find a way to get it. I started working at 11 years old selling candy door to door. I know very scary right, but at 11 years old all I knew was I had to sell a certain amount of candy before I could go home. When I knocked on a door, out came my foot and I didn’t move it until you bought a box of candy. The skills I learned from my difficult childhood, (my lemons) really became a blessing (my lemonade).

I learned at a really young age that persistence will open many doors. As an adult I have walked out on a stage with a tiger after Zig Ziglar and talked to over 2,000 people about overcoming their fears. I know you must be thinking…a tiger? I have volunteered for over 15 years with big cat sanctuaries and have learned you can do something you really love while helping others in remarkable ways. In today’s economy you hear lots of people say they can’t find a job. So what happens?

The longer you’re out of work, you start to lose your contacts. You’re not keeping up with the day-to-day changes in your trade. You’re simply out of the loop. The longer you’re in this position the more the fear sets in. What if I can’t find a job? I have so much to offer, how do I get someone to talk to me? Well as you can see, fear can really take a hold of you, it makes you feel like a deer in the headlights. How do you overcome these things?

First off, STOP listening to the FEAR and STOP making EXCUSES. Look, I’ve made many of the same excuses when I’ve let fear be a part of my life. I now realize that the answer to overcoming the fear is to replace it with remarkable things you can be proud of. Instead of asking why would anyone want to hire me, ask yourself why not me?

After volunteering you could say. Look at the change I’ve made in the lives of others. Look what I’ve learned along the way. Look at the skills I’ve been taught while helping others. Look at the great people I’ve met. They’ve seen first hand the type of passion I put into any job I take on. So how will this work? I have made a commitment to bring you a volunteering opportunity at least once a week. The process of volunteering can be more complicated than people may think.

Remarkable gifts for your community

My name is Ron, this summer my wife organized an outreach service project with our bible study group.  The project was to make-over the exterior of an individuals home in our city.  We met as a group with shovels, hammers, rakes and paint brushes in hand and started a long days work.  Oh, did I mention that my wife had an unexpected occurrence and could not attend, so I set out alone to do the work for both of us.  Being no Bob Villa, I was dreading the day and even a little bit nervous about what would be asked of me.  When I pulled up to the project site and saw that every one was working together, I realized it was about much more than building or cleaning, it was about helping a neighbor in need.  I ended up painting, mowing and even though I had a hard time even starting the lawn mower, we all worked together and made a huge difference for the home owner.  Our project was hosted by the City of Euless and their Revitalization program along with Six Stones Ministries.  I almost wish that I would have gone into this experience with a better attitude, but now I can appreciate the things I learned and might even be able to accomplish some similar tasks around my own home....but dont' tell my wife.   Please go to for information and see how you can help your neighbor .
Euless Revitalization is now expanding to a partnership of the City of Euless, the City of Hurst, local businesses, nonprofit organizations and churches helping people and homes in need. In the days ahead, you will see more about Community Powered Revitalization.

    Thanks for helping your community and giving to others. People like you show others that the community really does care.

  2. As a dad I know how hard it is to get out and volunteer. I really need to do the same.

  3. I think it's great when our kids learn at a young age to help others
