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.

Email me your news. 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. Most of all how did you feel about helping others today.

My goal is to get you to share with all of us your experience. Think about how much we can learn from each other. Please email me your pictures and story to so I can post them each day. I will add the trademarks, video and links for you.

Meadowlark Lemon the Clown Prince of Basketball needs your smiles and prayers


Hi Jean Robb here. I've done several stories about Meadowlark and all of the great work he's done. Meadowlark has always given so much to make us smile and to bring us joy. This week, Meadowlark's beautiful granddaughter Meg passed away leaving behind her two sweet  babies (four year old Miliki and nineteen month old Peter). I can't imagine how hard it would be having to get up and speak at my granddaughters funeral. Meadowlark has been so kind to share with me and many others his sadness and has asked for prayers in this time of need. I thought about how many times he has been an answered prayer for all of us and decided to share with you his story so you can reach out and show your support. Below are the posts from Meadowlark and information about Meg's foundation. I will post the links and information so it will be easy to help out! I hope that you will reach out and send all the love and support  you can. Please lets give Meadowlark his beautiful smile back again!

Please take a moment to listen to Mr Will . Today's show shared the story of Meadowlark Lemon and his families loss of his granddaughter Meg. Will you're a blessing in a time of need!

Please keep my family and I in your prayers today.

My granddaughter passed away this week in Tucson and I am on my way now to speak @ her funeral. Her name is Margaret and she was only 28yrs old with a 4yr old named Maliki and a 19 month old baby named Peter. Thank you for your prayers!
Thank you to everyone who has been praying for my family. Speaking yesterday at my Grandaughter's Funeral in Tucson while looking @ her baby and 4year old son in the front row of the church was one of the most challenging days of my life... I was comforted knowing so many were praying. Meg was a very healthy 28 yr. old & complained of headaches recently - last week they found a brain tumor & she was put on life support after the surgery to remove the tumor. I was able to spend several days last week in the hospital praying with her & altho she did not live, she donated 7 of her organs that went to Arizona recipients so they could live! Thank you again for your continued prayers, love and support! Blessings to you and your families - Meadowlark
A special note from Meadowlark Lemon: 
My first grandchild, Meg (Margaret) born on June 3, 1983 & went to be with the Lord on March 8, 2012. Also, Meg's son Peter, 19 months old, one of my great grandsons so many of you are praying for & have helped to support Peter & his 4 yr. old brother Maliki by donating to "MEG's MEMORIAL FUND" through my Foundation. I will post a pic of Maliki soon. Thank you all for your continued prayerful support & your many generous donations to "MEG's MEMORIAL FUND" that will support my great grandsons & surviving children of other single parent homes who have the same challenge. Blessings, Meadowlark

  1. So sorry for Medowlark Lemon and his family's loss...blessings, prayers and thoughts go out to them:)

  2. Thanks Robin. I just know Meadowlark can feel the prayers and love! I thought maybe you could share his story on your show and share the information about Meg's fund. Thanks for taking the time so share !!!!

  3. A sweet Note to me from Meadowlark
    Jean you have been an angel! We so appreciate what you've been doing to spread the word about my granddaughter, MEG's MEMORIAL FUND! Meg was a single Mom & has always loved children from an early age & her desire was to own a childcare facility one day. Her boys, 4 yr. old Maliki (pronounced Malachi like in the Bible) & baby Peter were her inspiration! We believe the perfect way to honor Meg was to create the MEG's MEMORIAL FUND to take care of her two little boys (my great grandsons) & then also to help other surviving children of single parent homes who's parent has passed away to soon! Many Blessings, Meadowlark

  4. Mr. Lemon, I had the good fortune to meet her grandchildren in Tucson a few months ago, three beautiful children Malaki and Baby Peter, is also Charles his grandson?.
    I hope with all my heart that her granddaughter Meg dream come true.
    A hug empathy with losing a loved one.

  5. Mr. Lemon, in previous post I did not sayed my name, I am Ana Maria Soto, I live in Mexico. I followed his career in basketball for many years. The story of his granddaughter and great-grandchildren moved me. My daughter Olga died of cancer 15 years ago, she left orphaned her four children very young: 9, 7, 4 and 1.
    That's why I read this situation I have felt alive again the story of my daughter. I like to support the foundation of Meg. How is this possible?
