What is making you hesitate at taking a $225K offer? Short of some non-negotiables (like criminal activity), I would jump on this. Even if you don’t want to do the work long term, the increased income would be a financial boon.

I know we all love the work from home (or do we?) but does anyone actually miss traveling for their consulting engagements and all the fun that goes along with it? The late nights at the office then the bar and random hookups and excitement and all that? Sure it’s a grind but I think I actually miss it too. Maybe I just miss seeing people at work or seeing people at all. I wonder if we’ll ever get back to that.
