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.

Tuesday's Children ~ 9/11 Charity Making The Biggest Difference


In the 12 years since the tragic World Trade Center attacks, a number of organizations have committed their missions to meaningfully remembering the thousands of victims murdered, supporting survivors and finding inspirational ways to channel grief into an opportunity to bring comfort, hope and peace to the world.
Find out how you can get involved with the nonprofits that are making the greatest difference.
Tuesday's Children

Originally established to provide support for the more than 3,000 children affected by September 11, Tuesday's Children has now evolved into helping anyone impacted by any disaster around the world.
Find out how you can get involved here. 

Tuesday’s Children partners with recognized leaders in the fields of child development, family advocacy, crisis counseling and mentoring to develop an innovative platform of programs to meet the changing needs of thousands of individuals who continue to heal after the tragic events of September 11, 2001. Tuesday’s Children provides direct services and continuous outreach to approximately 10,000 individuals, including bereaved families and individuals, families of first responders, veterans of post-9/11 military operations, and teenagers from around the world impacted by a traumatic loss due to terrorism. We have an enduring commitment to the children who lost parents on September 11, 2001, and as they grow, so does Tuesday’s Children. We are providing access to career services and empowering them to give back through community service, mentoring, and supporting younger children in our community, including children of veterans and first responders. As a long-term response and recovery organization, the Tuesday’s Children strategy and mission, grounded in the principle of resilience and strength through community, has now been adapted to meet the needs of other communities affected by traumatic events. The Resiliency Center of Newtown, a new program of Tuesday’s Children, is implementing our Long-Term Healing Model, which provides recovery services to support the families impacted by the December 14, 2012 tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary.

Looking Forward:

We lost dear friends and relatives on September, 11th, but in the process, we’ve healed as a community and created lasting relationships that bond us together. Through our commitments to each other, we can heal by turning our tragedies into a positive force for good. We have a enduring commitment to the children who lost parents on September 11th, and as they get older we are providing access to career services and strive to empower them to become the next generation of leaders by allowing them to give back through community service, mentoring, and supporting younger children in our community, including children of veterans and first responders. Tuesday’s Children has a moral responsibility to share the knowledge we’ve gained since September 11th, about long-term and collective healing. For this reason, our mission has expanded to offer support and programming to other communities impacted by acts of terror. Through programs like Project COMMON BOND and the Resiliency Center of Newtown, we are committed to being a leader in long-term recovery from mass acts of tragedy and terrorism. We feel it is our duty not only to memorialize those we’ve lost, but to do all we can to comfort and support their children and families…ur living memorials.

Our Mission

Tuesday’s Children was founded to promote long-term healing in all those directly impacted by the events of September 11, 2001. Our mission today is to keep the promise to those children and families while serving and supporting communities affected by acts of terror worldwide.
