Is there a particular industry and/or product/service you are interested in? LinkedIn has a decent tool for narrowing your search based on criteria like WFH/remote, etc.

I would say LinkedIn or maybe some freelance work? There's a lot of biz dev and lead generation type stuff if you'd be interested in that

HelmsBriscoe would be a great place for you!

Can one stock save the market? AAPL is trying to do its best to stem the tide. AAPL has stopped its decline at the 38.2% retracement of its advance since April. It could reassert itself and start a bull run here. However, 70% of the time, it continues to the 50-61.8% line. That would take AAPL down to the 95.48-85.50 Level. Needless to say, given the weight of AAPL is the S&P and DOW, that is where the pain comes in for the indexes. I do think AAPL tries 117-120 before resuming its downtrend.
