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.

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.

Uncle Kracker To Headline Smiles Charity Concert
By Smiles Charity

The 2011 Smiles Charity Concert and Festival will be held Sunday May 29th 5:00-10:00 pm at the Adriatica outdoor concert venue and will feature country star Uncle Kracker. Joining Uncle Kracker on stage will be local favorite the Maylee Thomas Band and Stars Go Dim, an up and coming band that recently opened for the GooGoo Dolls in Los Angeles. The Memorial Day concert event will also have a flyover by WWII era planes, a kids area with bounce houses, games, and activities, local food and drink vendors, a tribute to fallen military heroes, and a spectacular fireworks display at its conclusion. The announcement of Uncle Kracker  as the headliner was made official on 97.5 KLAK, the radio station of Collin County  playing today’s hits and yesterdays favorites. "I can't wait to get there and do this show," said Uncle Kracker in aninterview on the air with KLAK's Johnny B and Carrie Benjamin.  "It's for such agreat cause." KLAK, an active supporter of Smiles Charity and its mission, alongwith Raytheon, Crest Auto Group, Dr. Buchanan Orthodontics, Torchmark and Simpson Strong-Tie make the concert event possible. Their support allows Smiles Charity to organize an event to draw thousands together for a great cause.In 2011, the goal of the Smiles Charity concert is to raise awareness of the need for affordable housing by severely wounded soldiers returning from war. These heroes deserve nothing less than the gift of a home from a deeply thankful nation, and the Smiles Charity Concert and Festival will provide the opportunity for those who want to say thank you to make a difference in a soldier's life. While admission is free, Smiles Charity will be accepting donations throughout the event to help build homes for severely wounded veterans. Cash and credit cards will be accepted for all donations as well as concessions, and a small $5 entrance fee for the kids area. Specifically, net proceeds from the 2011 concert will help build mortgage-free homes for Levi Wilson and Alan Hornaday, both of
whom were left disabled after sustaining injuries while serving their country inIraq.Additionally,during the concert event, Smiles Charity will honor two local fallen heroes, Brandon Bury and Cody Board, who made the ultimate sacrifice in 2010 while serving in Afghanistan.Supporters are encouraged to volunteer during the concert as hundreds of volunteers are needed to make the concert and festival a safe and successful event. This year’s event will have a special need for active and retired military members to volunteer in uniform. Please register to volunteer at and click on the volunteer tab.
