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.

Walk to Cure Diabetes - 2011

Click on the link above to see the JDRF main page!

Chrissy Carberry Meenan
It is that time of year again! Our family will be participating in the JDRF Diabetes 3 mile walk to help raise funds and awareness of Type 1 diabetes! Please support us by going to 
(Click on the blank space >) and donating 
to our team "The T1 Crushers". We appreciate your efforts to help us reach our goal this year! Johnny and I would love to be cured of this disease someday soon! Thanks for your support!!


You are not alone! We are here to answer your questions and help you handle the changes diabetes brings to your life.
Being diagnosed with diabetes is never easy. You may feel anger, sadness, guilt, fear ... or all of them at the same time. You may be sort of numb, and not feel much of anything for a while. Remember, whatever your feelings are — or aren't — they are normal, and many of them will pass or change with time. Most important, remember that you are still you and that you are not alone.
Lots to LearnLiving with diabetes is a new challenge, for you and for your family, too. You will have a lot to learn in order to manage your diabetes day to day, and to care for yourself. Your family, friends, teachers, and other people who are close to you will have a lot to learn, too. It can feel overwhelming for all of you at first. This is normal, too. Remembering to take it one day at a time can help. As time goes on, you — and they — will feel more and more confident in your knowledge about the disease and your ability to handle it.
Lots of Hope Keep in mind that the treatments for diabetes are improving all the time, and that even though your life will change, it can still be a full and active life.
The Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation's mission is to find a cure for diabetes.  We are making amazing progress.  But until there is a cure, helping to take care of the needs of people with diabetes, and their families and friends, is every bit as important to us.  We want to give you the information and resources you need to keep you as strong, healthy, and confident as possible.


Plenty of kids ask, "I'm not a scientist, so what can I do to help find a cure?" 
You're probably wondering the same thing. You might be surprised by how much you can do!
Research is very expensive. By participating in the Walk to Cure Diabetes and other JDRF events, you can raise money for scientific research funds that could pay for scientists' salaries and for important laboratory supplies. You can share your knowledge with newly diagnosed kids, and help out at a hospital or diabetes camp.You can be advocates for creating 
a better world: a world without diabetes.

General Diabetes Facts
Diabetes is a chronic, debilitating disease affecting every organ system. There are two major types of diabetes: type 1 and type 2. Type 1 diabetes is an autoimmune disease in which a person's pancreas stops producing insulin, a hormone that enables people to get energy from food. Type 2 diabetes is a metabolic disorder in which a person's body still produces insulin but is unable to use it effectively.

Type 1 Diabetes Facts
Type 1 diabetes is an autoimmune disease in which the body's immune system attacks and destroys the insulin-producing cells of the pancreas. While its causes are not yet entirely understood, scientists believe that both genetic factors and environmental triggers are involved.
