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.

The Dark Side of Pet Vaccination ~ 
 We humans don’t get childhood shots
repeatedly throughout our lives.
Why do our pets?
Top vet schools and these major veterinary organizations have changed their recommended vaccination guidelines to reduce the “vaccine load” on dogs and cats: The American Veterinary Medical Association, the World Small Animal Veterinary Association, the American Animal Hospital Association, the American Association of Feline Practitioners and The American Holistic Veterinary Medical Association.
Unfortunately, changes have been slow to come to the veterinary clinic level.
Why does this matter? Unnecessary vaccination increases the risk of adverse vaccine reactions but does not increase immunity to disease.

Veterinarians: Fully Inform Us Before
Vaccinating Our Dogs and Cats
Important: This website does NOT oppose all vaccination. We do not presume to tell you what decision you should make. We are advocates for informed consent before you make your vaccination decisions. Freedom of choice depends on information.
This website DOES OPPOSE:

  • vaccination without prior explanation of risks, benefits, vaccine effectiveness and duration of immunity
  • revaccination of animals that already have long or lifetime immunity
  • “one size fits all” vaccination protocols
  • multiple vaccines given in one visit, especially to cats and small breed dogs
  • optional vaccines routinely given to pets not specifically at risk
  • optional vaccines offering short immunity, limited effectiveness and high adverse reaction rates
  • vaccination of unhealthy animals
  • vaccination before or during surgery
  • vaccination of animals too young to form immunity
  • vaccination with vaccines on the “not recommended” list of the AVMA, AAHA and/or WSAVA
  • vaccine labels suggesting revaccination intervals sooner than supported by current research

Read What You Don’t Know About the Rabies Vaccine by Jan Rasmusen in the September 2012 issue of in Raw Insticts Magazine.

Jan Rasmusen’s beloved dog Jiggy was diagnosed with autoimmune liver disease after rabies vaccination and multiple “puppy shots.” He was less than a year old then and was still doing relatively well at age 12. Numerous veterinarians who treated Jiggy believe that vaccination likely set off his disease. (Autoimmune disease is a recognized vaccine reaction.) His disease spurred Jan’s research and subsequent advocacy and inspired her multiple national award-winning book, Scared Poopless: The Straight Scoop on Dog Care. Jiggy passed away peacefully August 19, 2012, likely from liver failure that triggered a stroke. His human mom and dad and his best friend Rascal were at his side to say goodbye. Taking care of Jiggy was an education in itself. For 11 years, he received quarterly blood draws and vet checks plus ultrasounds, CT scans and biopsies. He had every integrative treatment imaginable from than a dozen vets. To all outsiders he appeared healthy, but his blood values remained off the chart. (The liver enzymed ALT alone was more than 2300 for years; normal is around 100.) In 2010, a surgeon removed a large malignant tumor removed from his liver; 8 months later, Jiggy developed two bladder lesions — diagnosed by four veterinary specialists as likely being malignant transitional cell carsinoma (TCC). (Tissue samples have been sent to a lab.) With aggressive holistic treatment, growth of remaining liver lesions and bladder growth stopped — and one bladder tumor completely vanished from his latest ultrasound.
Jan has long wanted a not-for-profit website where pet lovers and pet professionals could find reliable, evidence-based information on vaccination. This website began as Jan’s brain child but quickly became a collaborative effort. Veterinarians who have long worried about over-vaccination and vaccine-induced disease (VIDs) — friends and new acquaintances alike — have guided her,

Jan, right, with Drs. Jean Dodds and Ron Schultz at Jan’s Safer Pet Vaccination Benefit Seminar
educated her and allowed her to publish their articles, studies and videos. Pet lovers with vaccine-damaged dogs or cats have stepped up to spread the word and share their stories.
Jan writes several blogs on holistic health care and consumer advocacy – Truth4Dogs and Blog4Dogs – and a fun, but informative free quarterly e-newsletter.

All proceeds from Jan work support research into the rabies vaccine and other research and educational projects.
