Volunteer your remarketable gifts and become more marketable!

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.

I have included in each story all the information I received and the direct contacts to make it really easy for you to get your foot in the door.Network, Network, Network” See how you can use that experience to build your resume.

This week my volunteer time was with friends and family. I've always thought that this would be a great way to have fun and do something good. It was beyond fun.. I went to the Rahr and Son's 5 k run benefiting Habitat for Humanity with Shelly and a friend Clay. 
We had the best time!

Clay came in second for his age group. Way to go Clay!

The cry of happy beer drinkers at the start of the Munich Oktoberfest, which in German means, "The keg is tapped!" Well, almost! It was time to lace up our running shoes, dust off our lederhosen & dirndl, grab our favorite beer stein and meet at Rahr & Sons brewery on Saturday, September 25th for the inaugural running of the Rahr & Sons Oktoberfest 5K all benefitting the Trinity Habitat for Humanity. 
    Rahr and Son's were great host. It was raining so hard but everyone showed up to ran for

Trinity Habitat for Humanity

I had to wonder ( What is everyone else going to drink)  
this ones for me!
Habitat for Humanity Rahr understands what it is like to lose your home, yes I'm referring to the great roof collapse at their brewery, it is with that in mind they decided to partner with the Trinity Habitat for Humanity as their beneficiary. With the rain as a reminder of what bad weather can do Rahr quickly moved us inside the brewery. So here I am with friends and family in a brewery ready to serve all the runners lots of beer, lets just say life is good.

Now I know I said I was worried about what everyone else was going to drink but Rahr put my mind at ease and offered Beer For Everyone! That's right a fast run on a wet day with about 1000 of my closes friends (Just kidding I only had two with me) life is good. The Habitat for Humanity staff was there to show their support .

The Rahr staff was funny and really great. 
They just kept serving the food and Beer. Did I mention life is good. Oh yea I did! 

As you can see this was really lots of fun. I knew it would be fun to do something good for others and do it with my friends and family. What are you doing next weekend. maybe you can round up your loved ones and go do something together. I know I'll be at this event next year. How about you?
