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.

Univision Arizona sports anchor Felipe Corral to host charity golf tournament~Isac Amaya's Story.


This story comes from



, Phoenix Boxing Examiner

Ron Valderrama writes for Boxing News and, with Tony Whitby, co-hosts a boxing show on Max Boxing Radio called "Punches-N-Bunches" Wednesday nights. You may contact Ron with your comments and questions, or follow him on Twitter and Facebook.

If Arizona boxing has a friend, it would have to be Univision Arizona's, Felipe Corral. He has been a valley Icon for many years in Arizona sports, he has always supported, and been involved with many charities. This time, Corral really steps up to the plate by hosting the "1st Annual Felipe Corral, Swing for Scholarships Golf Tournament" on Friday, Sept. 28, at the AZ Biltmore Resort, Adobe golf course. The tournament will benefit the Isac Amaya Foundation, a foundation dedicated to increase enrollment of minority and economically disadvantaged youth in higher education institutions in Arizona and around the country. The Isac Amaya Foundation will also be hosting a "Scholarship Dinner", Saturday, Aug. 25, at Carl Hayden High School in Phoenix. Information about the upcoming Golf Tournament will also be available.  Isac Amaya attended Phoenix College, studied mathematics and loved soccer. He earned an Associate's Degree from Phoenix College and wanted to continue his education by attending Arizona State University. Because Amaya's immigration status, he was not eligible for funds to continue at ASU. In 2006, Amaya joined a volunteer-based youth radio show called "El Break" founded by a group of friends. The show was based on topics ranging from health, arts and culture, to education.That same year, Amaya's employer offered to send him to Tennessee to spend time working and gain a higher-level experience, he was committed to succeed despite the card dealt to him. Sadly, Isac Amaya was killed in a tragic automobile accident on his way to Tennessee. To honor Isac, the radio show focused on helping students achieve their goal of higher education. This would be the birth, and beginning of the Isac Amaya Foundation. Isac Amaya's legacy will continue with the help of Felipe Corral and many others. For years, Corral has donated time and money to many charities, many times unnoticed. His dedication to sports, especially boxing is second to none. Phoenix, being one of the largest cities in America, has very little television news coverage regarding boxing in Arizona. With the exception of Felipe Corral, Univision Arizona, and a couple of other stations in the valley, quality boxing news coverage is reported. Whenever a fight is happening in Phoenix, or Arizona for that matter, Corral and Univision Arizona are there to provide the news with a generous amount of air-time. The interviews are in-depth, whether the fight is a major televised fight, or simple club fight, the result is the same. Corral also has a weekly segment on Univision Arizona called "Promesas del Futuro" (Future Promises). The segment is dedicated to the effort and dedication of young athletes.
For more information about this event, contact, or by phone at (480) 703-9910 or (623) 399-7569. The event will also be featured on Max Boxing Radio's, Punches "N" Bunches Edition, hosted by Tony Whitby. Check them out for details.
