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.

Don't Let Congress Slash Funding for the Environment &  Conservation
We urgently need your help.
Some in Congress are trying to brutally slash funding for just about everything WWF and its supporters care about. Environmental protection in the United States, international conservation efforts to save threatened species and wild places, basic funding for earth sciences and research into clean energy, efforts to study and solve climate change: all of these priorities would be cut to the bone if some in Congress had their way.
Take action today by sending the letter below to your members of Congress and the Obama Administration urging them to oppose deep cuts to these essential programs.  Remind them that our budget woes are temporary, but extinction is forever.
Get more information about WWF's parterships with the US government on international conservation.

Dear Jean,

Over the past few weeks, I hope that you've been inspired and touched as we took a journey through WWF's five decades of conservation.

Thanks to you, Jean, we have been able to grow our mission to protect species from extinction and preserve extraordinary habitats.

Will you make a monthly donation to WWF today in honor of our 50th anniversary?

As a WWF supporter, YOU have played a vital role in some of the most important 
conservation achievements of the last half century. 
I thank you for all you have done to make this moment possible.
As we look back over the last 50 years, you have much to be proud of:

Galapagos WWF was the first global conservation organization to invest in the Galápagos Islands, by funding the construction of the Charles Darwin Research Station. With thousands of species found no place else on Earth, the Galápagos remain a priceless laboratory for scientists today.
Tiger In the 1970s tiger numbers were crashing in India. In response, WWF launched Operation Tiger, dedicating $1 million for emergency action. In turn, the Indian government launched Project Tiger and committed to rebuild tiger populations, establishing a network of tiger reserves.
Forest WWF was the first international conservation organization invited to work in China. Since the 1980s, we have been a leader in protecting the precious species and vital habitats of the country, collaborating with the Chinese government to survey giant pandas and developing the first-ever panda conservation plan.
Woman making handicraft goods In 1990, following Namibia's independence, WWF supported the growth of its communal conservancy program, which puts the power of protecting prime wildlife habitat into the hands of local people and improves livelihoods.
Polar bears In 2008 WWF celebrated a major victory when the polar bear officially became protected under the Endangered Species Act, an important step toward recognizing the importance of climate change and its impact on wildlife.

But as we look to the next 50 years--including the critical months ahead--we know that there remains so much we must do. In fact, many species now face urgent threats. And so I ask you to please take action on this historic occasion by making a monthly donation in honor of WWF's 50th Anniversary.

We will put your monthly donation to work funding some of the critical, ongoing WWF conservation initiatives that I believe people will be writing about 50 years from now--from the protected waters of the Galápagos to the precious bamboo forests in China where pandas live.

Help WWF make history again. Together we can protect species from extinction, preserve extraordinary habitats, and leave future generations a world of thriving biodiversity.

P.S. Continue your support of our global conservation efforts and make a monthly donation to WWF today in honor of our 50th anniversary. As a token of our thanks, you will be able to select a special free gift. If you prefer, you may also make a one-time donation.
