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.

In-Sync Exotics is Proud to Present: A New Toy ~ See the tigers at In Sync up close and personal right from your home!
Click on the link above to see the In Sync Exotics main page
Hi, Jean Robb here. As many of you know I've worked with In-Sync Exotics for more than a year now. I believe that some people have a great gift of working with animals because the animal can feel the kind heart and protection from that person 
right from the start of the relationship 
Vicky Keahey ( President & CEO of In-Sync Exotics ) is a great example of this!   

 Vicky has an amazing gift for working with the big cats she and In- Sync Exotics cares for. I will be forever grateful to Vicky and In-Sync for saving Apollo's life. It took love, trust, hard work and many hours of dedication to get Apollo back to the great cat he is today. I've never seen anyone working with animals have the talent and gifts  that  Vicky has to offer the cats at In- Sync.
Vicky works endless hours not because of ego or motive but simply because she loves the cats. Please consider making a visit to In-Sync to meet Vicky and all the big cats she care for! The video above shows the beautiful enclosure and playground provided for the cats. 
It's a great way to see the cats right from home!

Apollo's Story

The USDA confiscated Apollo, another tiger and a lion from a local entertainment facility and brought them to In-Sync Exotics where they would find a safe, nurturing haven. All three cats were neglected and emaciated.Of the three, Apollo was in the worst condition.He was roughly 200 lbs underweight and completely bald from the neck down.He also had open sores covering most of his body. Test revealed his poor skin condition was the result of poor nutrition and unsanitary living conditions. When he arrived he was stressed, agitated and so terrified that he scrunched himself up into a corner until he discovered the den, where he holed himself up for three days. He wouldn't eat for two days, and once he started eating, he only did so when no one was around. With lots of love and patience we have slowly gained Apollo's trust.He has a couple of special friends and loves playing in his tub while it's being clean. Instead of snarling and baring his teeth all of the time, Apollo will now offer his cheek and greet his caregivers with chuffs. He's afraid to leave his cage to go out on the playground, but with some behavior modification we've been able to convince him that short visit in the playground is not so bad. We hope that when Apollo's permanent enclosure is complete he will feel more comfortable about going out to play. Apollo has made remarkable progress since he's been here. He loves dinner time and eats very well. He's now at a healthy weight and has a full body of beautiful fur. 

A New Toy on the Playground!

You have got to see this wonderful video creation of our tigers -- it gives the words "Tiger Cam" a whole new meaning! It's play time for "the babies" at In-Sync Exotics Wildlife Rescue and Education Center in Wylie, Texas.

During morning recess the five tigers find something new in the playground - a special hi-definition video camera hidden safely inside a log to record a "tigers-eye" view of their world.

Our goal to rescue mistreated and/or displaced cats and provide them with a lifetime of excellent care is an expensive labor of love. It costs $100,000 a year to feed our animals and another $15,000 for veterinarian care. Plus we have the added expenses for utilities, enrichment, equipment and suppliesHowever, we cannot do it alone. You can help ensure our cats receive the very best diet, medical care and loving, enriching environment by making a tax-deductible donation today. There are several ways to donate:
