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.

Our Mission

To provide financial assistance to those suffering from Alzheimer’s disease, their families or loved ones when finance or basic insurance is unavailable. This is a personal journey to honor my Mother, Maria Mirabel Guzman, who died from this terrible disease. It is my desire to help families care for their loved ones in their own home for as long as possible. A secondary goal is to help improve Alzheimer’s facilities making them a place where families feel their loved ones will be cared for with compassion.     Sign the Petition to the President

José Guzman
Jose Guzman is a former Major League Baseball pitcher, who played with both the Texas Rangers and the Chicago Cubs over a span of 10 years. Although baseball was a major part of his life, nothing was more important to him than his mother. It is because of his personal experience with Alzheimer's and the suffering that it caused his mother, and ultimately his entire family, that he chose to start the Guzman23 Foundation. Through this foundation, Jose hopes to be able to provide financial assistance to those suffering from Alzheimer’s disease, their families or loved ones when finances or basic insurance is unavailable. It is Jose's desire to help families care for their loved ones in their own home as long as possible, as well as helping to improve Alzheimer’s facilities, making them a place where families feel their loved ones will be cared for with compassion.

Facts and Figures on Alzheimer's - Report Published
Alzheimer's Report 2013

The Alzheimer's Association 2013 Alzheimer's Disease Facts and Figures Report reveals new statistics on the ever-growing weight of Alzheimer's disease on our nation.
The report uncovers new information on growing death rates, the cost of the disease, and the burden placed on long-distance caregivers. "Unfortunately today there are no Alzheimer's survivors. If you have Alzheimer's disease, you either die from it or die with it. Now we know that 1 in every 3 seniors dies with Alzheimer's disease or another dementia. Urgent, meaningful action is necessary, particularly as more and more people age into greater risk for developing a disease that has no cure and no way to slow or stop its progression," said Harry Johns, president and CEO of the Alzheimer's Association. By 2025, the number of people 65 and older with Alzheimer's disease is estimated to reach 7.1 million – a 40 percent increase from 5 million aged 65 and older currently affected. Startling facts include:
1 in 3 seniors dies with Alzheimer's or another dementia.
Deaths from Alzheimer's increased 68 percent between 2000 and 2010, while deaths from other major diseases, including the number one cause of death (heart disease), decreased.
In 2012, the direct costs of caring for those with Alzheimer's or other dementias to American society will total an estimated $203 billion, including $142 billion in costs to Medicare and Medicaid.
The face of Alzheimer's is changing, affecting more of our friends and family every day. View the Report
