Hoping for some advice here!!

I’m a senior sales person that just left my first job (where I was ranked top 10% in sales, worked for 5 years, qualified for presidents club 3 times & was very well known & respected) for a new company that will definitely be better, but I am starting over. Also, working from home for the first time (last job deemed “essential”).

What are some things you all have done to stay motivated during the climb of starting over? Also when learning to work from home?

Have a clear target, a routine, work out early before breakfast & put on some music whilst doing admin. Also doesn‘t hurt to have a hobby to recharge your battery (I‘ve cut work into 3 blocks with longer breaks throughout the day, cooking and music inbetween).

I have applied for multiple upon multiple WFH positions for well over a year now and haven’t gotten anywhere. Some I never hear back. I have had about a handful of interviews and when I reach out, no response. I have the experience and knowledge as well. Or I have come across a lot of scams. At this point in my life I need a WFH. It’s all so discouraging!

I received an offer Friday for a new role that my mentor referred me to & she’s the director of the team. Its more in line with my career trajectory, fully remote, and the culture seems great. They offered 80k and told me the range is 70-80k and they were excited to offer the top of the budget. It’s a little amount but I was hoping for a min of 80, but really like 82k thinking about the role. Do I bother asking since they gave the disclaimer top of budget or ask bc there’s prob room?

This is my first fully remote role and it’s thrown me for a bit of a loop
