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.

Leonardo DiCaprio Donates $1 Million To Save Tigers~ Poaching, illegal wildlife trade and habitat loss have driven tiger numbers from more than 100,000 a century ago to as few as 3,200 today.

Text TIGERS to 20222

 Fortunately, there is still hope. I've been thankful to see WWF's successful projects up close and personal in Asia, and I know that progress can be made.

This week, WWF is celebrating Tiger Week, to highlight the urgent need to help protect tigers in the wild. To support its urgent work in Asia to protect tigers, there is a very easy way you can help:

Please text TIGERS to 20222 to donate $10 and help WWF protect tigers.

Your donation will directly support WWF's tiger protection efforts--ranging from India to China, to the Russian Far East.

There are 3 key reasons why we need to help WWF during Tiger Week:

  • Support park rangers, who are conservation heroes on the frontline of this effort. Rangers live in remote places, away from their family for long periods, and often in tough conditions. In many countries they are also unarmed and have to deal with poachers equipped with sophisticated weapons.
  • Invest in technology so that our efforts are as effective as possible. WWF would like to make sure all rangers have computerized databases linked with GPS-based tracking systems to help improve their patrolling efforts.
  • Get to zero poaching. This is no easy task and WWF is tackling it from the ground up by pushing for no tolerance for poaching and better law enforcement to tackle illegal wildlife trade. WWF is working with national enforcement agencies to make wildlife crime an important issue.
Together, we can preserve an icon of the wild, and save the tiger for future generations. Join us:

Please text TIGERS to 20222 to donate $10 and help WWF protect tigers.
