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.

Email me your news. 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. Most of all how did you feel about helping others today.

Trinity Habitat for Humanity

Habitat for HumanityAt Rahr we understand what it is like to lose your home, yes we are referring to the great roof collapse at our brewery, it is with that in mind we decided to partner with the Trinity Habitat for Humanity as our beneficiary. 
Founded in 1976 by Millard Fuller and his wife Linda, Habitat for Humanity has built in excess of 300,000 quality affordable homes and over 1.5 million people served around the world. All Habitat for Humanity affiliates build on the belief that everyone deserves a decent place to live at a price they can afford.
Habitat for Humanity volunteers, working hand in hand with the families they serve, build quality, affordable homes using donations of money and materials.
Fort Worth Area Habitat for Humanity was founded in 1989 as an affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International. Fort Worth Area Habitat has since grown from a handful of dedicated founders into a volunteer corps of thousands and today ranks among the top 20 U.S. Habitat affiliates in home production. In 2006 the name was changed to Trinity Habitat for Humanity in order to be more inclusive of the four counties we serve.
