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.

My goal is to get you to share with all of us your experience. Think about how much we can learn from each other. Please email me your pictures and story to so I can post them each day. I will add the trademarks, video and links for you.

                         Click on the link above to post your photo.

Dear Jean,

World Habitat Day is less than a month away, and we need your help to send a message to leaders in Washington, D.C. For the second year in a row, Habitat for Humanity is collecting photos from our supporters around the world—people like you who make it possible for us to partner with families in need. We need your photo to pose an important question to decision-makers in Washington, D.C.: “What will you build?”

Our leaders make decisions every day that impact access to affordable and adequate housing—and Habitat’s ability to serve communities in need. We must remind them to make housing a priority—and you can help by taking a photo that asks them, “What will you build?”

Visit Habitat’s Photo Wall site and join the campaign!

Last year, we collected more than 1,500 photos from supporters around the world. We’ve already received hundreds of photos so far, but we need your help to reach our goal of 3,000 photos on the Habitat Photo Wall by October 11, 2010!

Just visit our Photo Wall site and upload a photo of yourself, then ask your friends and family to speak out in support of our work together by uploading their photos, too.

Habitat for Humanity is working to eliminate poverty housing and build a stronger future—and we hope you’ll join us in taking our message to Washington. Joining the Photo Wall campaign is quick and easy. Together, we can ask decision-makers to build a world without poverty housing—upload your photo today and add your voice to the call to make safe, decent and affordable housing a top priority.

Ask our leaders what they will build—visit our Photo Wall and get involved now!
