    2015 was a blast!! I had trouble keeping my list to “only” 15 great experiences, but here are my favorites: 1. Visiting Iguazu Falls in Argentina and making my location independent dreams a reality! 2. My trip to China and Nigeria— a super cool, if jet lagged, project doing in home interviews with teens. 3. Getting some culture shock closer to […]

    I recently had a project get canceled. This is not out of the ordinary; budgets get cut, priorities shift, and occasionally, another researcher wins the work instead (unbelievable, I know). What was a little out of the ordinary with my recent cancellation was that the process had been dragging on for SIX months. In April, I gave the team a […]

    I just got back from 12 days in China and Nigeria, doing in-home focus groups with teens. A lot of people have been throwing questions at me, so I thought I’d lay it all out here… What’s the project all about? A beverage company wanted to understand teens’ lives: their priorities, struggles, and day-to-day activities. The research agency they used needed another […]

    My parents came to New Orleans to visit this weekend. (That’s them in 1966!) My dad, himself an entrepreneur, and my mom, a logistics and problem-solving whiz, have been two of my greatest supporters—both with practical advice and cheerleading—in the almost six years of Jessica Broome Research. Hearing them say, “You did good!” is more meaningful to me than any praise […]

    David Letterman is on his way out, but in his honor, here’s a top 10 list. 1. Getting locked in a strange Indian family’s bathroom after an in-home interview. The respondent had to let me out! 2. Being told by a respondent in Shawangunk Maximum Security prison that I had some “funky, Frankenstein-looking shoes.” 3. Passing out during focus groups the day after running the New […]

    Last week I gave an overview of one of my favorite projects from last year, a global qualitative study on beverages. I thought you might like to see what a few days in my life look like when I’m doing this kind of work… For my last interview in New York, four of us (me; the videographer; the client; and someone from […]

    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 […]

    I’ve blogged in the past about recent projects I’ve done, but today I wanted to share an incomplete list of types of clients I’d like to work for. Sometimes just putting these things out in the world (or on the Internet) makes them happen! 1. International work: As a Returned Peace Corps volunteer and current world traveler, I have no fear of jet lag or cultural […]
