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.

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.

Sneaky Pets and Harmful Foods: Keep Your Pets Safe This Thanksgiving

By Dr. Debora Lichtenberg, VMD, Pets Adviser

It’s time for that fun holiday again! You know. The one where you work all week, get home on Wednesday night, start cooking like a lunatic and continue slaving for the next 24 hours.Then you watch your relatives take a break from TV and games to gobble your food in five minutes flat. By 5 o’clock on Thanksgiving Day, you are standing amid what resembles a test kitchen for Breaking Bad after a meth explosion. Oh, and you have relatives staying for the weekend who need clean beds and breakfast. By Friday morning you need to go back to work to get some rest! Maybe your Thanksgiving is nothing like that. With any luck, the modern American November nightmare has turned into a post-modern Americana weekend of football and friends for whom you are thankful, helping out at every corner, enjoying warm, meaningful conversations by an international fire.Whatever the case, Thanksgiving weekend is often full of food and visitors. You are often busy cooking and hosting, and your pets may get a little lost in the hullabaloo. Your furry Drumsticks and Cranberry-heads need to be kept safe and happy too. Here are a few tips...

Arranging for Pet Care During the Holidays

By Dr. Debora Lichtenberg, VMD, Pets Adviser

The year-end holiday season can be the Bermuda Triangle of anxiety for your pets, not to mention yourself. Our furry friends don’t like change, don’t like when their family is gone and often don’t like intruders (relatives) in their own space. Careful planning may reduce your holiday stress and theirs. Whether it’s to grandmother’s house you go, or your relatives and friends are encircling your own hearth, now is the time to plan for the care of Pumpkin the cat and Holly the hound...

6 Things Your Cat Wishes You Knew

By T.J. Banks, Pets Adviser

Over the years, I’ve been adopted by many cats. Others I’ve met through my Reiki practice, rescue work and pet sitting gigs.
So I like to think I speak cat pretty fluently. Maybe with a funny accent but well enough that we understand each other.
These are some of the things they’ve conveyed to me over the years...
