I have an opportunity for a new position with higher pay, fully remote with the option of going into the local office whenever I want, unlimited PTO, within a growing industry and in a role that I could then easily transition into pretty much any tech company - but its a drop in title. I’d be going from Director to senior manager - but this is also a much bigger company. I’m fine with it but I’m wondering how it might look on my résumé in the future. Has anyone deal w this before? Any thoughts?

Seeking advice from experienced small business owners. I'm thinking about transitioning from a small physical shop (art, jewelry, incense, books) to doing it all online. For anyone who's made the switch or had an online shop for a while, what are the must-do's and the must avoids for switching over? Business is good so not worried about losing patrons, just want to make it as seamless as possible.
