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.

I have a social media presence which, in recent years, reached millions. There has to be something exciting I can do.

It's remote, the salary is good, the manager is nice, but you'd be the most senior marketing person; the company is about 200 people. What would you do?

Is there any way I can work my very impressive high school result into my app? (I got a 45/perfect score on IB for those familiar with it) My GPA in college is very weak (3.3 from top school with massive grade inflation) because I didn’t care / felt like GPA mattered so I’m trying to fit my IB score in somewhere to show that I’m still smart, can work hard, and do well when I want to.
Feedback or thoughts: My school has a rigorous virtual schedule. When talking about kids who need to be progress monitored our admin said we must do it either before or after school since the only other time we have is during lunch break. Thoughts?
