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 Story came to me by Laura Sue Laubach-Richardson

Adopt a Military Family for Christmas

Soldiers' Angels still has 600 military families still waiting to adopted for the Holidays!  These are families of young enlisted soldiers who are struggling to have a festive holiday celebration.  The goal of adoption is to to help military families in need with presents for their children and a grocery gift card or prepaid Visa gift card to purchase their holiday dinner and trimmings.
If you can't adopt a military family by yourself, please considering pairing up with another family, or organizing your church, workplace or community group to adopt a family in your area.  This project is a great way to connect one on one with military families to offer a special Thank You this holiday season by providing food and gifts for a Military Family! 
For all the information about adoption and how to do it, please click here.  Even if you can't support a family single-handedly, please donate along with others who are combining their efforts to make sure each family is taken care of.

SOLDIERS' ANGELS: “ABSOLUTELY CRITICAL” MISSION POSSIBLE! May no soldier go unloved, May no soldier walk alone, May no solder be forgotten, Until they all come home. ~ The Soldiers' Angels mission, as quoted by founder Patti Patton Bader. Pasadena, CA - As more American service members deploy or redeploy with the Global War on Terror, the Soldiers' Angels mission becomes even more critical. Soldiers' Angels has sent over 200,000 packages and countless letters to our troops since it began in 2003. Patti Patton-Bader was inspired to found Soldier's Angels when her son wrote home from Iraq, expressing his concern that some soldiers did not receive any mail or support from home. Within a few short months Soldiers' Angels had grown from a mother writing a few extra letters, to an Internet community with two hundred thousand angels worldwide. ”It is only through the collective effort of people who believe and stand for freedom that we can continue to help these young heroes who valiantly stand for us,” says Bader. Soldiers' Angels has grown and expanded to include many programs that support American service members and their families, including letters, care packages and support to troops overseas; first responder packs; laptop computers and handmade blankets for wounded troops hospitalized or receiving treatment at military hospitals; items shipped to overseas soldiers to give to children in war zones; memorial trees for the families of heroes who have been killed while serving; and emergency airfare for service members and their families who would otherwise not qualify or cannot afford the cost of a flight. Soldiers' Angels currently supports tens of thousands of American service members stationed wherever the American flag is raised. Soldiers' Angels is dedicated in supporting the military during and after their deployment. In the time-honored tradition of civilian support of American soldiers, Soldiers' Angels sponsors a wide variety of programs supporting American soldiers and their families. Soldiers' Angels' programs include first responder packs, general support and laptop computers to wounded soldiers receiving treatment at American military hospitals; care packages, letters, and support to deployed soldiers; items shipped for deployed soldiers to to children in the war zone; and memorial trees for the families of soldiers who have died in the service of their country. There are several ways to support our troops through Soldiers' Angels. For more information please visit our national website, or contact Soldiers' Angels at (615) 676-0239 or
