Back in the day, I did my own PR, sales & marketing for whatever business idea I was running with at the time. What’s a good remote sales opportunity I can do anywhere in the world that won’t be painful or too high touch? Where I can use my social & business skills (markets, law, cloud, publishing, media, logistics, algos, social media, books, ebooks, design, podcasting, marketing, press release writing, voiceover, journalism) to earn a few extra shillings?

mgr and I haven’t always had the best relationship due to micro managing, and it’s gotten worse while wfh — shes constantly pinging me during random times in the day (which makes me anxious), will ask me where I physically am during our check ins - I’m not sure if I’m imagining it but i feel like she’s asking where I am to see if I’m working enough — any advice? (she’s also insinuated that COVID is a chance to work more, and that shes chosen to just work and not read the news)
Is just me or now that we’re WFH, when coworkers call your work phone unannounced is it bothersome? Like please ping me if you’re trying to get in touch with me (continued...)

For people who live alone, how are you staying motivated? I’ve been feeling more depressed lately and really need some advice to get through this whole wfh thing
My professional life at the moment is far from ideal. I’ve been on quarantine (long story, but a good one) for the last seven years. Royalties from my books don’t pay the bills. My entrepreneurial pursuits remain hampered. For the interim, I’ve been looking for a remote opportunity where I can leverage my skills in marketing, sales, social media, and elsewhere for a decent sum. I have a social media presence which, in recent years, reached millions. There has to be something exciting I can do.

First week on the project, been asked to take notes on wed/thurs during a 2 day workshop. I find it pretty difficult to take meeting notes in a subject area I'm completely unfamiliar with. Any tips?
I was laid off from a resource management role, working with employees approaching or on the bench, working with managers to staff projects, and support functions like report creation, scheduling, etc. Roles like this are few and many large consulting firms have frozen internal hiring. Do you think it would be beneficial to get a SHRM cert? Would that help get a "talent related" HR role? Worth the money? I have a background in recruitment as well.
