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.

IFAW "Tigers" ~ In some states, it's actually easier to buy a tiger than to adopt a dog from a local animal shelter!
Click on the link above to see the IFAW main page!

Hi, Jean Robb here. As many of you already know I work with several sanctuaries making great homes for big cats. The sad truth is they are all full to capacity with lions, tigers, leopards and cougars that someone thought would make a good pet. It's really dangerous to have these big cats in captivity. Even if you know what you're doing. The really sad truth is that many states allow these big cats to be owned and housed in what could be your neighbor's back yard. In fact, there are more privately-owned tigers in American backyards than there are in the wild. Every center I work with wishes that private ownership was a thing of the past because it's expensive and sad to know that even though they're doing their best to make great homes there are many cats still needing help. The answer is to make it very difficult to own them privately. Please see below how you can sign a petition and help!!!!

Dear jean,

I've seen the horrific suffering captive tigers go through in this country, and I hoped I would never see it again.

Rotting away in tiny, filthy cages, around 5,000 of these majestic beasts are reduced to nothing more than dangerous 'pets' or sideshow props.

In fact, there are more privately-owned tigers in American backyards than there are in the wild.

Worse still, tiger parts are highly prized on the black market. Some of these backyard tigers may even end up skinned, stuffed or butchered for trinkets.

That's why today I'm asking for your help.

Take Action

You see, we have a unique opportunity to close a loophole that allows people to legally keep tigers on their property without reporting even basic information about them to the Federal government. Because of this loophole, tigers can be bred, exploited and discarded with virtually no oversight.

In some states, it's actually easier to buy a tiger than to adopt a dog from a local animal shelter! As a result, several human lives have already been tragically lost.

Please take a moment to tell the US Fish & Wildlife Service to close the "generic tiger" loophole and to keep track of the number of tigers in the US. You can make a huge difference in three easy steps:

Step 1: Visit the official USFW website here and fill in your contact information on the lefthand side.

Step 2: Enter your public comment in the box on the right side of the page. Feel free to use the below text:

I strongly support the removal of the generic tiger loophole as proposed in 76 Fed. Reg. 45597, Endangered and Threatened Wildlife and Plants; US Captive-Bred Inter-Subspecific Crossed or Generic Tigers. The regulatory removal of this loophole would go far toward preventing the illegal trade in tiger parts originating from the United States.

Specifically, I support the idea that owners of tigers must report any activity including births, deaths, and transfers and that they must supply a year end inventory of all animals held the previous year.

Thank you for taking this first step towards ensuring that captive tigers are treated humanely, that they are kept in conditions safe for both cat and humans, and that they don't threaten the world's last remaining wild tigers.

Step 3: Click "Submit" and let me know you took action by sending a copy of your public comments to

By closing this loophole, captive tigers in the US will have far more protection under US law. But please don't wait to speak out for tigers, there are only a few more weeks for public comments to be accepted.

I can't thank you enough.
