Comment on Engagement Powers the Habit Cycle by Natasha http://www.amybucherphd.com/engagement-powers-the-habit-cycle/#comment-21104 Sat, 08 Apr 2017 04:41:23 +0000 http://www.amybucherphd.com/?p=5546#comment-21104 Amazing articles. We ‘reward’ our clients on their wellness levels. More than 60% of our clients do not have wellness levels even though they’re paying premiums , some for longer than 10 years. This keeps me awake at night. We’re running a sample and using data to fnd similarities. I want to use your approach with Nir and Kyra Bobinet to nudge these clients to success. Do you have any other articles we can use in our approach to help our clients and ensure a better success for our clients. Love your work and approach. Planning to show this in a client journey

I believe all three findings are still being seen relevant today in different scenarios. It’s amazing how even how we’ve evolved as human beings, there are still some things that may always be present.

Comment on A Behavior Change Perspective on the Community First! Village in Austin by Danielle K. http://www.amybucherphd.com/a-behavior-change-perspective-on-the-community-first-village-in-austin/#comment-20501 Mon, 31 Oct 2016 18:03:53 +0000 http://www.amybucherphd.com/?p=5300#comment-20501 Yes, “Housing first” is a model Pine Street Inn uses in Boston.

(Getting people housed before working on other issues.)

And PSI has over 900 people housed in buildings across the city (in addition to the emergency shelter beds). They buildings have common kitchen space and a common living room, for the same social reasons.

I learned a lot when I temped in the Pine Street Inn fundraising office. It’s a wonderful organization.

Comment on So You Want to Run the Boston Marathon for Charity? by Amy Bucher http://www.amybucherphd.com/so-you-want-to-run-the-boston-marathon-for-charity/#comment-20113 Fri, 07 Oct 2016 18:36:33 +0000 http://www.amybucherphd.com/?p=3919#comment-20113 Hi Alyssa-

Yep, I just did it through (aggressive) word of mouth. I did weekly blog post updates (which are all still on my site under the 2015 Boston Marathon heading) about my training for the past week. I also sent regular emails, two of them. One was to people who already donated letting them know I was grateful for their generosity and keeping them informed. The other was to people who had not yet donated but I was asking for donations to. I would include links to the blog posts.

Another thing that helped was making it as easy as possible for my coworkers to apply for our company’s matching donations. I included the links to the program and step-by-step instructions.

The only fundraiser I did was Superbowl Squares, which was easy to run and fun.

I hope that helps. Hopefully the ALS Foundation will have support for the fundraising aspect to make it easier for you. Good luck!

-Amy

Comment on Why I Miss Wearing Glasses by Jim http://www.amybucherphd.com/why-i-miss-wearing-glasses/#comment-20112 Fri, 07 Oct 2016 17:46:15 +0000 http://www.amybucherphd.com/?p=2337#comment-20112 Oddly enough you’re by far not the first person to have lasik and find after a short time they really do miss their glasses. Now i’m sure you don’t miss the poor vision even though your vision must not have been too bad to begin with. I am a retired optician and I have a very good friend that had had -5.50 with some astigmatisms as well and becasue she misused her contacts by over wearing them was unable to ever wear contacts again. So she had been wearing glasses since high school. She told me that while in high school and still wearing contacts daily she was a cheerleader. but when she couldn’t wear contacts anymore she quit the team because she couldn’t see well enough to do cheers without her glasses and she just couldn’t see herself wearing glasses as cheerleader. Anyway after she finished school and started working she got a job as an optician. At some point someone from TLC came in and offered her lasik for $500.00 if she would give out cards to TLC. She was fine with that and so was her boss since they didn’t offer lasik. She came out with 20/10 vision and she loved it at first. But after a couple years she told me that she missed her glasses. She had several pairs of plano glasses from where she worked but that didn’t satisfy her. She convinced her doctor at the store she worked at that she was having trouble seeing at night when driving which of course she wasn’t. He finally gave in and prescribed her with -.50 glasses and he even told her that she should only wear them at night when driving. But when she got her glasses she wore them full time. The glasses did change her eyesight slightly and she now has an actual prescription of -.50 and she is perfectly fine with that prescription.

Comment on So You Want to Run the Boston Marathon for Charity? by Alyssa Cantwell http://www.amybucherphd.com/so-you-want-to-run-the-boston-marathon-for-charity/#comment-20086 Thu, 06 Oct 2016 00:11:34 +0000 http://www.amybucherphd.com/?p=3919#comment-20086 Hi Amy, this was a super informative post! I am applying to run on the team for Massachusetts Chapter of the ALS Association. I’m hoping to run in honor of my aunt, who was diagnosed with the disease about two years ago. Their minimum fundraising requirement is $7500, which is a hefty chunk of change and knowing that I am on the hook for anything I don’t raise is making me anxious . Were you able to just raise money by word of mouth? I’d love to hear more specifics about how you accomplished your fundraising goal for DFCI. Thanks so much for sharing!
