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.

  Click on the link above to see the ASPCA Kids main page!

Hi Jean Robb here. 
I thought with Summer just around the corner it would be a good idea to find something fun for the kids. Remember that all of our stories are interactive. Just click on the appropriate place to start the fun!
ASPCA Kids teaches children the importance of treating animals with kindness and respect. Plus, kids can find the latest tips on fighting animal cruelty and get the scoop on exciting careers in the animal field. Don't worry—we made sure to include plenty of interactive games, cartoons and contests, too!
 The ASPCA believes that there are many ways kids can get involved in helping ALL animals—from endangered species to four-legged family members. That’s why we created ASPCA Kids—the website for kids who love animals!.

School's out, the long days of summer are upon us, and your kids are restless. Short of shipping them off to summer camp, how can you keep them happy and busy, and without letting them catch on, make sure they're learning along the way?

Ask Azula

Hey kids, have an important question to ask? Well, you don't have to wait any longer—email Azula today!
This Week's Question
Why are frogs slimy?
—Ms. B’s Grade 2 Class, Quebec, Canada
Great question, grade twos! (That’s how Canadians say “second graders.”) Like you and me, frogs have lungs for breathing, but they also breathe through their skin! To do that, they need to stay a little bit wet, even when they’re on land. Many frogs solve that problem by producing slimy stuff and oozing it all over their skin.
But that’s not all the slime does—it helps frogs absorb water better and protects them from predators. Slime makes frogs slippery, and sometimes it has poison in it. Some frog slime is even being studied by scientists for its potential to cure human diseases!
Who knew that something so icky could actually be so cool?
