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.

Chimpanzee Swings Into Theaters Earth Day 2012 Disney is celebrating by donating a portion of the proceeds from that first week's ticket sales to benefit animals - in this case, chimpanzees.


Dear jean,

Disneynature has done it again. In fact, they may have done it even better than ever!

The early reviews for Disneynature's new film Chimpanzee are in, and it's being called their best so far - high praise considering their first three movies (Oceans, Earth, African Cats) are among the top four highest grossing full-length nature films of all time.

Here's a preview.

Like their previous films, Chimpanzee's opening week (April 20-26) coincides with Earth Day on April 22. And Disney is celebrating by donating a portion of the proceeds from that first week's ticket sales to benefit animals - in this case, chimpanzees.

Our shared world

You and I know how humans share so many attributes with our animal kingdom friends. And chimpanzees may be the best example of that.

In Chimpanzee, Disneynature highlights those similarities by following the story of Oscar, a playful three-year-old whose life is turned upside-down when he's separated from his mother.

Narrated by Tim Allen (from ABC's Last Man Standing), Chimpanzee shows how now-orphaned Oscar survives all alone in a forest full of danger, and how he's helped by a most unlikely companion and guardian.

Partners in animal protection

Of course, IFAW knows a lot about raising orphaned animals. From orphaned elephants and rhinos in India…to orphaned bears in Russia and Canada, IFAW has some of the world's foremost expertise and experience with rescuing, raising, and releasing orphaned animals.

And Disney has partnered with IFAW for well over a decade to help us rescue and care for the animal victims of disasters and protect habitat critical to elephants, tigers, porpoises and other animals.

Disney has been a true partner in IFAW's mission to make the world better for animals. And I'm thrilled that they continue their tradition of bringing the natural world to film that Walt Disney began with his groundbreaking nature films of the 1940's and 50's.

See Chimpanzee, save chimpanzees

With Chimpanzee, Disneynature breaks new ground in bringing the natural world to film. It's a "must-see" as they say in the film industry.

And remember, proceeds from ticket sales in the first week of release (April 20-26) will go towards helping protect chimpanzees and their habitat.

So you can be the first of your friends to see Chimpanzee...and know that your ticket will be helping save the animals you're watching.

You can reserve your advanced ticket here.

See you at the movies!
