    I like to give my loyal readers occasional updates of all my exciting activities and adventures in the research trenches… I’ve been in Ann Arbor, Michigan this summer, teaching a class in Questionnaire Design. I’m also working with two of my most beloved professors, managing their MOOC on the same topic. Basically I can’t get enough of designing questionnaires. I’m […]

    I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: everybody needs research.

Teach in at least 2 forums. In the past I’ve done trainings in research […]

    As promised, following up on last week’s 2013 recap, here’s a look forward with some goals for Jessica Broome Research in 2014. 1. Make more money than last year– and make money every month. I had 2 months last year with no income at all, which was a little scary. Granted, I kind of asked for this (!) by taking 4 […]

    Whoa! I did not mean to abandon my blog for so long.

Now that that’s done, I wanted to recap 2013 for Jessica Broome Research. By the numbers: […]

I’ve been having a ton of fun, and wanted to share my top 5 favorite things about this life. 1. Hunting for my dinner makes me sharper.  Cold calling is stressful: the amount of work for no […]
