Not sure if anyone can relate or has any advice, but lately I’ve been feeling a little lost as far as where to live. After 7 years in NYC, I let my apartment go and came to CO for the summer to climb and hike outside. I like the outdoor activity, but don’t think I could live here indefinitely. Now that work’s remote, I don’t really know where to go next.

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?
