Volunteer and Market Yourself…Remarkably

“Remarkable Marketable Mehelps you share your remarkable gifts volunteering, making you more marketable along the way.

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.

Tommy Lasorda a chance to work with the USO and give a little something back to our troops who give so much for us.

Hi, Jean Robb here. I have had the opportunity to work with Tommy Lasorda on two different occasions. He has without questions one of the kindest hearts and gives so much to help others. I know when I needed his help with Frank Lucchesi's event I could count on him to make the event special. Now Tommy is helping the USO by bringing the game of baseball to our soldiers. Here's all you'll need to help out and be involved.

Dear Jean --
All across America, it's Opening Day. As a player and a fan, I've always found the start of a new baseball season to be a time full of excitement and promise.
Fans streaming into ballparks, rooting like crazy for the home team. You can't beat that. This year, I'm hoping you'll help make Opening Day extra special by supporting the one team all of us are always rooting for: our troops.
Our troops' service is far more serious than any ball game. Everyday they protect the American way and make possible great moments in our lives like Opening Day. So, it only seems fitting that we open our hearts to show our troops that they have our unyielding support.
Join me and the USO in an Opening Day show of support for our troops. Donate $25 or more before Wednesday at midnight and the USO will send you a limited edition t-shirt.

Support Our Troops: Home or Away

From brave troops serving in remote forward operating bases in Afghanistan to heroic wounded warriors embarking on the road to recovery back here at home, each one of our troops depends on us to be there for them, wherever they are. 
That’s why the USO is dedicated to delivering tangible comforts of home and vital direct services to meet our troops’ needs -- home or away. And by joining our campaign today with just $25 or more, you’ll receive a unique jersey-style t-shirt that will show the world that you’ve got our troops’ back.
Baseball fans are some of the most dedicated and passionate people in the world. When we come together in support of our team, good things happen.
That's why I know, if we can all rally together this Opening Day, we can do something incredible for our troops. Let's make sure they know we support their service and we honor their sacrifice.
Support our troops with a special Opening Day gift to the USO and they'll send you this one-of-a-kind jersey t-shirt.
I'm truly honored to get this chance to work with the USO and give a little something back to our troops who give so much for us. And I thank you for taking part today.
Thanks for all you do for our troops,
Lasorda signature
