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.

Veterans Against The Deal "Sgt Bartlett" 2015 USA

As congress prepares to vote yes or no next month on a nuclear deal with Iran, President Obama is facing a growing amount of skepticism. Many senators have stated they will vote against the bill, although words and actions are hardly the same in politics. With President Obama's recent statements that those who don't support the deal also risk going more war, that skepticism is turned into outrage, especially among those whose voices should be heard in this matter, but aren't: veterans.
As of today, that's changing. A non-profit (and non-partisan) organization called Veterans Against the Deal has launched a new campaign from the voice of vets, urging Senators to vote no on the deal. It is currently running in states where some Senators may be on the fence about which side of history they'd like to be standing on when they vote next month.
The first ad features Retired Staff Sgt. Robert Bartlett who was blown up by an Iranian bomb, leaving him disfigured. in addition to that horrible day, he also describes witnessing atrocities at the hands of Iranian terrorists who came into villages, killed children and forced the villagers to do their bidding. "Every politician whose involved in this will be held accountable. They'll have blood on their hands," he says. The ad ends with Bartlett urging those in Montana to call Senator Jon Tester and urge him to vote no on the deal.
As far as political ads go, this one eschews the over-the-top theatrics, (except perhaps for the music) and exploitive imagery. No bloody photographs. No crying victims. Instead, Sgt. Bartlett sits quietly on his sofa and tells you what he thinks. By choosing to shine the spotlight on a vet who sustained a casualty a decade ago, the ad also reminds us that Iran's past actions suggest the chances of "peace in our time," are historically slim.
