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.

    Dear Jean,

    Do you have a minute to help make sure the Obama administration hears our message?

    Last week, our CEO, Jonathan Reckford, wrote to the Obama administration about an important issue—improving the lives of people living in slums throughout the world. I hope you can take a moment to reinforce his critical message.

    By the year 2030, we expect that as many as 2 billion people worldwide will be living in slums, facing overcrowding, unsafe housing, unsanitary conditions and limited access to safe water. Without real housing solutions for people in the poorest countries, other efforts at development are destined to fail—efforts to improve public health, education and disaster recovery don’t succeed unless people live in safe and healthy homes.

    President Obama recently highlighted the importance of leadership in changing the lives of people living in slums. Habitat for Humanity wants him to know that we are ready to work with him to improve the lives of slum-dwellers globally. From passing critical legislation to increasing cooperation between agencies and throughout the international community, Habitat will play a key role in enacting strategies that work in an ever-urbanizing world.Please take a moment to add your voice. In just a few minutes, you can reach out to the White House to make sure they know you support Habitat’s work to find real housing solutions for people in need. 
    Thank you for all that you do.

    Please tell Congress to avoid short-sighted and dangerous cuts -- take action!
