"If you bring forth what is within you, what you bring forth will save you. If you do not bring forth what is within you, what you do not bring forth will destroy you."

Ruth Lyons was a Cincinnati radio and television personality who was one of the true pioneers of television.  Her trademark was her bouquet-covered microphone, which she always used.  Ruth had a saying that she loved:  "The Lord Will Provide!"  She loved telling stories of situations where people were in need in difficult situations and then something happened, seemingly out of the blue, that helped out in the situation.  I have a story today.

I'm unemployed and I figure that my unemployment check will almost cover my mortgage and utilities, but will not cover food, gas, or any medical bills or insurance.  So I'm going to have to get used to really tightening my belt until I do get a new job.

Yesterday I got a call from Fieldwork Atlanta.  This is a market research organization I have been involved with for years.  I have come in from time to time to do research studies - from 1-1/2 to 3 hours - for which I get paid.  Since I have been working full time, however, I have not qualified for studies that take place during the workday.  And these are the most lucrative studies. 

Fieldwork told me they had a study scheduled for Monday, July 11 for 3 hours.  They then took some specific info and said they would call me back if I was qualified.  I just got a call for them and I am qualified! For my participation in the study, I will receive $125 cash.  WOW!  This couldn't come at a better time!  Hopefully, I will be eligible and available for a few more studies in the next few months.  That would help out so much!

Fieldwork has locations in 12 U.S. cities.  Check out my link above to see if there is one close to you.  All you have to do is register with them, and then wait to get a call if you appear to be qualified for a study.  It's really a lot of fun. And if the study starts around a meal time, they have sandwiches, chips and drinks for you.  All this plus CASH!  I'm so grateful.

  2. Every time things look bleak, remember how this worked for you & keep the faith. Take care.
