Qualitative Research Consultants Association (QRCA) - QRCA Views Magazine, Winter 2020

Liz: One of the core questions you seem to always ask your guests is, “What advice would you give yourself ten years ago?” I’ll turn the tables on you now. What advice would you give yourself when you were first starting the podcast? Jamin: Great question! I would tell myself to not be so surprised about how excited people are to be on the show. It’s probably self-selecting, but there is a good part of our industry that likes to talk and open up about things. I’ve interviewed people that I’ve worked with for two decades. In a one-hour interview with them, or a thirty-minute interview with them, I’ve learned more about them than I did in the last two decades. Liz: How can market researchers find your podcasts? We should mention that there is no cost or subscription to listen to them. Jamin: You can access this podcast at https://happymr.com or from wherever you get your podcasts by searching “Happy Market Research.” Liz: Jamin, thanks again for your time today. I really learned a lot and feel like we’ve given our readers a little perspec- tive into the genius behind Happy Market Research. Jamin: My pleasure! I would ask you to be on the show at some point but you already have been! Maybe we can get you to come back. Liz: That would be great! Thanks again. n HUMOR n QUALITATIVE RESEARCH CONSULTANTS ASSOCIATION 59
