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.

Hi Jean Robb here. 

Please consider attending the 2nd annual Animal Guardian Network Holiday Dog Walk and Festival.

The Animal Guardian Network, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) charity provides a humane helping hand for animals in need and disadvantaged pet guardians through our many programs.
The purpose of these programs is to provide the assistance essential to keeping pets in their loving homes thereby helping to reduce the number of pets euthanized every day. Being financially disadvantaged is not synonymous with an inability to provide a loving home. It is just an opportunity for us to make a difference in the life of an animal and their guardian by lending a helping hand.

Keep your dogs and cats safe this Holiday!


What pet wouldn’t enjoy a little turkey at Thanksgiving? But cooked bones of any kind, from chicken to turkey, can have sharp splinters and should never be given to your pets.
Watch out for holiday plants including holly, mistletoe and poinsettias, which can be poisonous to your pets. If you must have them in your home, keep them far out of reach. Better bet: Choose faux plants and you’ll have them each year.
All it takes to knock over a tree is the enthusiastically wagging tail of a larger dog or a climb from a curious cat. Use ornaments that are unbreakable on the lower boughs to avoid broken glass. For added protection, place a screen around the presents and the tree. Tinsel can pose a choking hazard and an intestinal dilemma for cats and dogs, so choose a garland that is pet-friendly. Avoid tree preservatives in the water reservoir of the tree stand, as pets may stop by for a drink.
In fact, giving even the smallest taste of chocolate to a pet can be toxic. Pets can become very sick. Share your love, share your happiness, but keep your chocolate to yourself.
The holidays are a time for added electrical cords. To cats and dogs, these look like playthings. Avoid chewed cords, risk of electrical shock, or dragged decorations by keeping cords taped down and when possible, out of sight.
In addition to electrical cords, burning candles become more prevalent on the holidays. Never leave a candle unattended with a pet in the house, where it can easily be knocked to the ground.
Unusual activity and unfamiliar guests can cause stress for your pets resulting in behaviors such as overexcitement, or a desire to run out of fear. Have identification on your pets at all times in case they do slip through an open door. Designate a quiet space for your pet ahead of time, should the excitement become too much.
Keeping dogs and cats safe during the holidays requires extra care, but taking steps to ensure their safety ahead of time means a happier, more relaxed holiday for everyone!
