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.

Founded 2005 by Dianne Samoff   

When I first started my business (Silver Spoon Events in 2000) I would go to networking events. I would pay $20.00 plus to get in and if I wanted to join it would be $100.00 plus and pay weekly or monthly dues. I would walk around for a few minutes before the meeting started. Then, I would listen to someone giving a speech and be served lunch. One time I had to listen to a full 45 minutes of someone telling how she learned how to ride bulls! After lunch some people would stay but for the most part people had to leave and get back to work. So, in 2005 in Houston I started thinking;

  I wanted to do something a little different, have fun at the same time and give back to the community. I discussed with a few friends and came up with: There would be a small fee to get in to cover our expenses. There would be no table to put business cards on, women would mingle, meet, pass out your cards and talk to everyone. We decided to have the contests to keep it fun and exciting. AND come on Ladies…we all have fancy glittery shoes, we do not get to wear very often in our closets… so this is why we have the contests. And that is how I came up with our name.

Then, I decided while we are having fun and we all have nice shoes in our closets that we do not wear any longer. So, that is why we ask for you to donate New or Gently used shoes to help other women that do not have a closet full of shoes and may need them for a new job.  


Every day you have the opportunity to learn and experience some-thing and some-one new. Seize the opportunity. 

Learn and experience everything you can, and use it to change the world.
