Can anyone help

Im just in the process of setting up my business, and need to do a little more market research, before I go ahead with it.

I have to interview at least 1000 women. There are only 10 short questions I need answers to.

I could stand outside in the town centre but since I currently work full time that would only mean a Saturday or Sunday and even if you did 100 women each day (which is unlikely since people never want to stop for you) it will take 8 weekends.

I need other ideas cheap ones since money is really tight...can anyone help?
In Jan 2007 I had a debt of £27,896.00 :eek:
In October 2011 I paid it off and owned £0.00 - Kinda proud of this!:T

    Have you got 10 friends or family members you could enlist to help you with this? Don't know how you reward them, but for some of my friends, their undying gratitude will do me. ;)

    Do you have to ask the questions face to face? If not, can you find 100 women you could email them to (again, with a little help from your friends)?

    Or post your questionnaire to various newsgroups which might have an interest in your product/service.
