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.

I'll Help Build It .Habitat still needs your VOTE!..What will you build?
This is such an easy way to help. Every vote counts!!!

Join garth brooks and trisha yearwood today! -- show your face on our photo wall for world habitat day -- post your photo!

Dear jean,

We need your help to send our leaders a message—and this is our moment.

Today is World Habitat Day, and we urge you to join Habitat—along with our friends Garth and Trisha—in drawing attention to the one billion people worldwide living in poverty housing or substandard conditions.

You can make your voice heard by joining the Habitat for Humanity Photo Wall campaign today.

Habitat’s success depends on the hard work and support of people like you, and all our faces on the Photo Wall will remind our elected officials that their decisions help make affordable housing—and Habitat’s work—possible.

You can make the point that housing needs to be a top priority by sending a photo message asking our leaders in Washington how they will build a better future. Ask them: “What will you build?”

You can join the campaign in 3 easy steps. Take a photo of yourself holding a paper sign asking, “What will you build?” Next, upload it onto our Photo Wall and then ask your friends and family to add their support by uploading their photos, too.

We’ve 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. Show your face for World Habitat Day by joining the campaign today, and ask our leaders how they will build a stronger future for all.

Thank you for your support!
