Yep!

I was for a long long time (March 2020-July 2021), but dumbly I spoke up and now I’m on 7 engagements as an A2… finding that when one picks up they all decide to pick up and it’s not fun. Learn from me and only pick up 1 or 2 engagements if you’re looking to fill time.

You still haven’t learned !! Let the engagement pick you not the other way round !

like

Current project I’m on. 1-2 hours a day and was just heavily praised

Yes, but that’s normal because all the hard work was front loaded on the engagement. I’ve done my part and now just have to keep an eye on things and make sure to assign any impediments to the right people.

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?
