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.

Parental Alienation and Hostile Aggressive Parenting involves the manipulation of children~ Do your part to get your local community aware of this problem!
Click on the link above to see the Parental Alienation Awareness main page.

Hi Jean Robb here. Parental Alienation involves the manipulation of children.

Did You Know That...
Parental Alienation is a form of Child Abuse?

Our mission is to educate the general public, schools, police, mental health counselors, religious leaders, as well as the perpetrators who may be unaware of the effect of alienating behaviors, and how these behaviors harm children. Our goal is education. We believe that with education comes understanding, and the will and power to stop the 
emotional and mental abuse of children.

Parental alienation (or Hostile Aggressive Parenting) is a group of behaviors that are damaging to children's mental and emotional well-being, and can interfere with a relationship of a child and either parent. These behaviors most often accompany high conflict marriages, separation or divorce. 

These behaviors whether verbal or non-verbal, cause a child to be mentally manipulated or bullied into believing a loving parent is the cause of all their problems, and/or the enemy, to be feared, hated, disrespected and/or avoided.

Parental alienation and hostile aggressive parenting deprive children of their right to be loved by and showing love for both of their parents. The destructive actions by an alienating parent or other third person (like another family member, or even a well meaning mental health care worker) can become abusive to the child - as the alienating behaviors are disturbing, confusing and often frightening, to the child, and can rob the child of their sense of security and safety leading to maladaptive emotional or psychiatric reactions.

Most people do not know about Parental Alienation and Hostile Aggressive Parenting until they experience it. Parental Alienation Awareness is put forth to help raise awareness about the growth in the problem of targeting children and their relationship in healthy and loving parent/child bond. 

We need your help to protect the innocent, ...the children.

We need your help to educate and make aware to the public the effects of Parental Alienation and Hostile Aggressive Parenting.

If you've been affected by Parental Alienation or know someone who has, or are a past victim of a parent who exhibited Hostile Aggressive Parenting, please write and tell us your story. We will add your story to our letters page for everyone around the world to publish in their local magazines, newspapers, etc. Please remember to keep your story to the telling of the confusion, loss, love, and heartache. Please refrain from excessive anger and verbally assaulting anyone in your letters.

The aim of the Awareness is to make the general public, judges, police officers, mental health care workers, child protection agencies, lawyers, as well as friends and family of the targeted children or their parents become aware of this growing problem.

With awareness comes education and understanding, and the power to stop the abuse of innocent children caught in the crossfire of people they love.

 Parental Alienation involves the manipulation of children, via a set of behaviors,
resulting in the destruction of a loving and warm relationship they once shared with a parent. Parental Alienation and Hostile Aggressive parenting deprives children of their right to share love with both of their parents. Although Parental Alienation is a global epidemic, most people do not know about Parental Alienation and Hostile Aggressive Parenting until they experience it.

Mission Statement of Parental Alienation Awareness Organization:
"To educate the public and professionals about prevention of, and responses to, Parental Alienation, parental alienation behaviors and Hostile Aggressive Parenting by offering seminars, conferences and meetings and by collecting and disseminating information on these topics."

In addition to following the mission statement of PAAO, North Texas Chapter of PAAO coordinates the annual Parental Alienation Awareness Day & Bubbles of LOVE Day event every April 25th.

PAAO North Texas Chapter meetings are sponsored by the Southlake Public Library. Meetings are held the 2nd Wednesday of every month at 7:00pm at City of Southlake Town Hall, 1400 Main Street, 3rd Floor, Southlake Texas.

PAAO North Texas Chapter is open to anyone who has been affected by Parental Alienation or who wants to be involved in awareness, education, prevention and remedies of Parental Alienation. Please join us to find out how the PAAO North Texas Chapter makes difference in the lives of those affected by Parental Alienation by offering advocacy opportunities, awareness, education and how you can be a part of it.

Parental Alienation Awareness Day and Bubbles of Love~April 25th


 For more information contact Wendy Archer at

Wendy Archer, Parental Alienation Awareness and Education Advocate, has been involved in Parental Alienation Awareness and the related necessary Family Court Reform since September 2009. Motivated by experiencing severe Parental Alienation and witnessing the most severe stage of Parental Alienation Syndrome, Wendy founded The LRC Foundation Inc, a non-profit Texas Corporation. The LRC Foundation Inc, named in honor of Wendy’s children Lauren and Rachel and Clayton, is dedicated to bringing awareness and education and support to the public and professionals to ?Learn Responsible Co-Parenting.?


Realizing that Parental Alienation is a global epidemic that has not received the recognition or support its victims deserve, Wendy jumped into advocacy with great enthusiasm. In March 2011, Wendy decided to focus her efforts to have a positive and widespread impact by coordinating Bubbles of LOVE Day DFW in conjunction with the 6th Annual Parental Alienation Awareness Day on April 25, 2011. At Wendy’s request, twelve mayors in the Dallas/Fort Worth area proclaimed April 25, 2011 Parental Alienation Awareness Day and Bubbles of LOVE Day. Bubbles of LOVE Day DFW received overwhelming local and national and global support from mayors, community leaders, non-profit organizations, and community networking programs, the City of Southlake, Texas and the Town of Trophy Club, Texas.
Wendy has lived in the Dallas/Fort Worth area since 1998. All three of Wendy’s children have attended the Carroll Independent School District since 1998. Wendy has maintained consistent involvement in the Carroll Independent School District since 1998. In addition to being a classroom volunteer on a regular basis, Wendy served as a chairperson on the Parent Teacher Organization Board of Rockenbaugh Elementary School every year that her children attended Rockenbaugh Elementary School. Wendy also served several terms on the Parent Teacher Organization Board of Dawson Middle School.
In addition to involvement with the schools, Wendy has been consistently involved in charitable organizations in the Dallas/Fort Worth area, particularly those who are committed to helping abused women and children. Wendy has consistently volunteered for “Battered Womens Foundation” since 1998 and has recently committed her service to “I Can Still Shine.” Wendy’s teenagers accompany her to volunteer work whenever possible as she believes that we are morally obligated as parents to teach our children to live with integrity and to be compassionate towards others and live with servant hearts.
Even during times of personal and financial challenges, Wendy has continued to give her time and talents to the schools and community. While financial contributions to charitable organizations are an obvious necessity, Wendy believes that everyone should serve others at all times however they are able to do so.
