Volunteer and Market Yourself…Remarkably

“Remarkable Marketable Mehelps you share your remarkable gifts volunteering, making you more marketable along the way.

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.

Dogs rescued from animal hoarder. Animal Guardian Network gives them a second chance.
Hi Jean Robb here. 

Please consider helping Animal Guardian Network. If you live in the Phoenix area stop by with a bag of food or a donation. You can help someone that is going through a hard time keep their family pet. I can't imagine not being able to feed my pets or have to give them up while going through such a hard time in my life. Please be the angel these pets and owners are looking for.

Dogs rescued from animal hoarder getting second chance

Some four-legged friends are getting a second chance thanks to a Valley woman's organization that is determined to give them the life they deserve.
“Once I read their story, I thought there is no way I can't take them,” Carrie Singer said.
Singer, founder of the Animal Guardian Network, is talking about her new furry friends; Tuli, Kieko and Suki.

“They were all in cages,” Singer said. “One stacked on the other and according to neighbors, they would go days without being fed or any water.”
The Shiba Inus are three of 30 dogs along with three cats rescued from a home in Durango near Seventh Street and Interstate 17 back in November. The Arizona Humane Society was called out after a neighbor saw one of the dogs digging through trash for food.
“I feel it's a blessing to help one or a 100,” Singer said. “And that’s because every life is important.”
Singer took the dogs in more than two weeks ago. At the Animal Guardian Network they will be nursed back to health before going up for adoption.

“All three of them have tons of fractured bones, old fractures,” Singer said. “They have fractured teeth and all of them have ear and eye problems. The ear problems stem from filthy conditions and no medical care.”
Tuli, Keiko and Suki are getting put back on a healthy track thanks to some Valley veterinarians donating their services.
“We call them the rehab suites, not kennels, rehab suites, especially after they have surgery,” Singer said. “We have to limit acting and interacting with other dogs.”
Besides getting medical care, it's also very important that they get a lot of tender loving care.
“The basic thing like getting them into a routine, getting them know their safe and know they don't have to worry breakfast is coming and dinner is coming,” Singer said. “Most of what they want second to food, just love. They want you to pet them and hold them.”
While it may take months before the Shibas will be ready to head to a new home, Singer said this is an important lesson that the situation these dogs were found in shouldn't happen again.
“You have to speak for those who can't speak,” Singer said.
If you would like to help these dogs from donations to volunteering, please log onto or call 480-488-9298.

The Animal Guardian Network's FEED IN NEED pet food relief bank is currently one of the largest in Arizona providing over 6,000lbs of dry pet food and over 500 cans of cat food per month.

Our goal is to provide 10,000lbs of pet food to struggling pet families each month. Every bowl we can keep filled is a pet family we can help keep together.

We do require that pets be spayed or neutered to qualify for our service. If you are unable to afford to have your pet altered we will provide assistance. The only exclusion is if your pet is in poor health.
