While I was getting my Bachelor’s degree I toyed with the idea of pursuing a PhD so that I could spend the rest of my life doing meaningful marketing research. One of my mentors was an African migrant who was currently focused on researching the ethnic history of current eurocentric trends such as CouchSurfing. She inspired me greatly but not enough to waste more years and money on things I could figure out myself with very free Google.
So instead of battling to prove myself by going through third party centers to submit my research findings I am founding my own research center and publishing through it as well as welcoming other researchers to do the same. There are already several theories I have in mind to research first and I have an idea of how I want to publish my finding but you never know how the world will be in a decade at the rate things have gone this year.
I’d also like to roll out some type of survey program in the near future ! One where there would maybe be an app or just a website alone where you can volunteer to be contacted for short surveys for lite research. It’ll also give people a way to make a little bit of money. I’d just have to figure out how to fund the compensation since we won’t be actually selling anything.
