Taylor Research: Life Science Researchers – $225

Taylor Research is a research company in San Diego, CA and I have done studies for them for over 20 years. I do 3 or 4 a year on various topics.

I received an email from them this morning with a great opportunity for those in the Life Science Research field.

Taylor Research is inviting Life Science Researchers who conduct laboratory research to participate in a live zoom interview between the dates of August 25th through August 29th, 2022.  During that time, we will conduct a 90-minute, one-on-one interview requesting your feedback on instrument workflows. Those who complete the survey will receive a thank you gift of $225.

If you are interested, please complete the form here, and in the referral box please indicate that Abby Hewes referred you.

Once you are in the Taylor Research Database, they will email you when they have surveys and studies available. It’s a great way to make extra money.

Yoga with Jennie Olson Six: December and January Class Schedule

My friend Jennie Olson Six is an amazing, nurturing Yogini. She is always sharing her love of yoga and making it accessible to anyone. She sent out an email with some of her upcoming classes for December and January, and I thought I’d share it. For some of us (myself included), it’s hard to get out and “go do” yoga or other classes, especially when kids are out of school. If you want to learn more about Jennie (who she is, what she offers, etc), here is her website.

Virtual Parent Workshop: Self-Monitoring Tools in the Home

This flyer showed up in my email inbox this morning and is a great opportunity to learn and help support your kids. My son’s class does Self & Match and it’s a great way to help kids learn about personal responsibility.

This Self & Match Virtual Parent Workshop takes place on May 11, 2021 at 9:00-10:30 am.

This interactive and hands-on workshop will provide an opportunity for parents and home providers to learn a well-defined, systematic self-monitoring intervention and motivational system to use in the home and school settings. A discussion of self-monitoring procedures incorporating a “match” component will be presented with a specific focus on Self & Match, a user-friendly, easy to implement.

Parents will be shared practice tools and tips that can be implemented immediately. Great workshop for individuals and/or teams (parents and in-home behavior analysts).

Make a note on your calendar and add this link to your online calendar.

Virtual Sleep Well Yoga with Jennie Olson Six

My friend and Yogini, Jennie Olson Six is offering an awesome, relaxing 30 minutes of unwinding movement and the rest of the time is a restful relaxation.

You can do this on your mat or in bed and then drift off to sleep!

Most of us miss our pre-pandemic exercise time. I don’t know about you, but I miss the quiet relaxation that yoga provides. It is impossible for me to do yoga in a house full of people (and CAT). Interruptions (mom mom mom mom mooooooom), cat trying to sleep on my mat, even the Amazon Guy knocking on the door- OY VEY.

The best part of this class is that it fits every budget-By Donation or Free

Jennie has some great tips and more information on other workouts and yoga opportunities for FREE here.
