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.

Netflix Originals ~ First Look: Netflix’s Original Series ‘Lilyhammer’
Click on the link above to see the Netflix / Lilyhammer page!

Hi ,Jean Robb here As many of you already know the only time I post anything other than charity stories on my blog is to talk about my brother Teddy and Netflix.  I'm so proud of all the things Teddy has done. Starting in February, Netflix subscribers will have the chance to view the service’s first original series ‘Lilyhammer,’ starring Steve Van Zandt of ‘The Sopranos.’ Here's all the information you'll need to tune in! 

Ted Sarandos, chief content officer of Netflix, announced in Cannes  that Netflix is adding Norwegian-produced TV show Lilyhammer to its original programming lineup. Stevie Van Zandt, who so memorably played mob consigliore Silvio Dante in The Sopranos — plays a Mafioso who testified against his former boss in New York and winds up relocated to the Norwegian countryside as part of the Witness Protection Program. Lilyhammer will premiere on Netflix in February 6th, 2012 with Netflix acquiring the 8 episodes from the show’s first season as well as the upcoming 8-episode second season. 

Sarandos, who was being interviewed by Miramax CEO Mike Lang, said that 60% of viewing on Netflix’s newly separated streaming business is for TV episodes, with Mad Men and Breaking Bad being most popular. Deadline understands that Netflix, which is on the hunt for original programming, has also had talks about reviving Arrested Development with 20th Century Fox TV. Netflix surprised Hollywood in March by outbidding major TV networks for the rights to the David Fincher/Kevin Spacey drama House Of Cards.

Before Netflix launches its big guns with the highly anticipated new season of Arrested Development and House of Cards from David Fincher and Kevin Spacey, the rental/streaming service will test the waters with its first original series, Lilyhammer.
The series brings back to television the familiar face of Steve Van Zandt who – when not playing guitar for Bruce Springsteen’s E Street Band – played New Jersey mobster Silvio Dante on HBO’s The Sopranos during its six-season run. In Lilyhammer, Van Zandt stars as New York mobster Frank ‘The Fixer’ Tagliano, who is shuffled into the witness protection program after dropping a dime on his former boss. Rather than be shipped off to Kansas or New Mexico, Frank insists on calling the host of the 1994 Winter Olympics home – and the Feds move the gangster off to the Norwegian town of Lillehammer. Of course, Frank’s vision of an idyllic, snow-capped getaway filled with gorgeous women and the lifestyle to which he’s grown accustomed, turns out to be a far cry from the actuality of his new situation. From what we can see in the trailer, the series looks to be a blend of drama and comedy – not unlike certain aspects of The Sopranos – with much of the central storyline focusing on the 
stranger-in-a-strange-land aspect.
Take a look at the trailer for Lilyhammer above:

All 8 Episodes of the Entire First Season Available to Watch Instantly on Netflix in the USA, Canada & Latin America Beginning February 6, 2012

As Netflix debuts its first original series, "Lilyhammer," on Feb. 6, the video subscription service has settled on a scheduling strategy suited for the digital world: making every episode available at once.
Signaling that it's embracing users' preference to watch multiple episodes of their favorite programs as a "marathon," Netflix won't be spacing out the eight shows of its first season of the comedic crime series over several weeks. "If you love the first episode, there is no need to wait until next week, or to set a DVR, to catch the next one," Netflix's chief content officer, Ted Sarandos, said in a statement Tuesday.
