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.

Up Date! "Animal Guardian Network". Giving pet owners and pets a chance to stay together through hard times!
Click on the link above to see Animal Guardian Networks 
main page!

The Animal Guardian Network really needs your support. We have taken in several cruelty and medical cases recently making our vet bills increase a great deal. We have also paid for several surgeries on behalf of financially disadvantage pet families that would have otherwise been forced to surrender their canine family member.

This Saturday March 12th from 10am to 4pm we will be holding a pet toy, accessory and gift sale at our facility in Cave Creek. We hope you will stop by to support our efforts. We would also appreciate it if you would help us get the word out by:
Forwarding the flyer to everyone you know
Posting the flyer/info on Facebook
Printing the flyer and posting anywhere and everywhere (Starbucks, dog parks, vet clinics, boutiques, hair salon, your office etc)

On behalf of those we save and those we serve, THANK YOU!!!

Here is a great ending to a sad beginning !

 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 in the county shelters. 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. 

The Animal Guardian Network, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) charity dedicated to saving the lives of animals and keeping pet families together through our many programs.
There are so many in need that no matter what effect economic challenges have had on our little grass roots organization we must succeed for them. We are almost always their last call and their last hope.
Helping Harley!
This incredibly sweet, sensitive, loving and loyal boy was adopted out 2 years ago. 2 weeks ago we received a call from a veterinary clinic stating that someone had found Harley. We gave them the contact info for the adopter along with the address. Since it was so close to the clinic where he was a vet tech was kind enough to stop by the adopter's home after work but no one would answer the door. We made numerous calls to her as well. Finally, she returned the clinic's call stating that she would be by the next day to pick him up.

Not one effort was made to find Harley when he went missing. He could have been injured lying on the side of the road and sadly the adopter could have cared less. The worse part is that our adoption contract states the pet must come back to us if for any reason is does not work out; all she had to do was call.

Needless to say that day came and went so we decided she was no longer suitable and went to pick Harley up.XX

He was so upset he threw up for 3 days. No he is starting to feel like himself again and would really like a loving family who will be as loyal and committed to him as he will be to them.

Won't you help us find Harley's forever family.

Please forward to any and every animal lover you know.

Thank you!

How will it impact the community?

Guardian Ranch fills an important niche by providing a humane destination with services essential to pet guardians in addition to ensuring the well-being and future work of the 
Animal Guardian Network (AGN). 

Guardian Ranch is the operational headquarters of the Feed in Need program which provides pet food assistance to low-income seniors and pet guardians suffering financial hardship. AGN’s Feed in Need program has provided assistance to hundreds of pet families.

One of components at Guardian Ranch is the event grounds which will be used for humane education. The Animal Guardian Network’s mission is keeping pet families together through resources and assistance. Education will be a big part of the resources provided. There will be new pet guardian programs including everything from training to nutrition and health. Also offered will be first aide classes, holistic alternatives along with seminars geared toward
the rescue community.

Another component of Guardian Ranch will be the Pet Chapel. Through the chapel grief counseling will be available, provided by ordained pet chaplains, along with opportunities to celebrate and memorialize our love for animals.

Guardian Ranch will offer pet boarding to the public along with rescue partner boarding to the animal welfare community.

Through the operations of Animal Guardian Network and Guardian Ranch we will keep pet families together, educate the public and the rescue community, save the lives of animals in 
need, and inspire others to make a difference.
