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.

Heart Broken Father covers "Let It Be" to raise money for his one year old son diagno...


Heart Broken Father Covers “Let It Be” By The Beatles To Raise Money For His One Year Old Son Diagnosed With Cancer

Dear Friends and Supporters,
On July 5th, 2012, my 11-month-old son, Noah, was diagnosed with a malignant brain tumor. Please consider making a donation of support, as well as helping spread this link. The proceeds from your donation will go towards getting Noah the best care possible, as well as helping keep our family afloat while we focus on little Noah’s treatment and comfort

Father posts touching rendition of 'Let It Be' on You Tube to raise money for one-year-old son with brain tumor 

A Salt Lake City father has released a touching rendition of The Beatles' song Let It Be to raise money for his one-year-old son Noah, who is battling a brain tumour.
Introducing the video, posted on YouTube on Friday, Mike Masse, a professional singer, explains that his cute baby boy was diagnosed with the malignant tumour on July 5th and that any donations will go towards getting little Noah the best treatment possible. The footage shows the man singing the heartfelt tune in a dark room while playing the keyboard and cuts to images of him with his son. Noticeably choked up, he explains: 'On July 5th, about two weeks ago, my sweet baby 11-month-old Noah was diagnosed with a malignant brain tumor.'I'm posting this on Noah's first birthday, so happy birthday Noah.' Mr Masse and Noah's mother initially thought the little boy had a stomach flu because he had been nauseous and couldn't keep anything down.
But he said the doctors were concerned and gave him a CT scan, which revealed the tumor. He went in for surgery but they could only remove half because it was bleeding so much,' the father-of-two told Mail Online, adding that before the procedure doctors were 95 per cent sure the cancer would be benign. The boy will begin chemotherapy shortly, his dad said. Mr Masse also uploaded the video on Facebook with a note thanking friends and family for their support.

'Thanks so much for all of the kind comments, thoughts and prayers,' he wrote.
'We're trying to take it a day at a time, but still feeling pretty overwhelmed by it all.'
The performer, who regularly does gigs covering tunes by bands including The Beatles and Coldplay at The Pie Pizzeria in Salt Lake City, has cancelled all his upcoming shows to focus on the tragedy. Mr Masse said making the video was one way he felt he could help his sick son. 'Over the years, I've been posting cover videos and have developed a following of people around the world who appreciate the songs,' he said.
'When this happened everything took a back seat to my son's health. I'm Noah's dad and I thought 'what can I do'. 'We've been feeling quite helpless and this was one way I felt I could actually help.' He said his record company initially suggested appealing to fans. 'They said 'why don't you do a charity song and let people help you to pay the medical costs',' Mr Masse said, adding that, as a huge Beatles fan, Let It Be seemed like the right song. Donations will go towards getting Noah 'the best care possible, as well as helping keep our family afloat while we focus on little Noah's treatment and comfort' Mr Masse added. 
People who donate get a downloadable mp3 version of the tune.

Mike Massé received the worst possible news a father could hear when he was informed on July 5th that his eleven month old son was diagnosed with a malignant form of cancer. 
To better cope with the future onslaught of medical bills, his friends suggested he make a cover song to raise proceeds. He appropriately chose The Beatles’ classic Let It Be
The slight tremble in his voice really expresses the powerful sadness and despair this father must be experiencing behind his stay-strong emotional wall. The video went viral after being featured on the front page of Reddit
