Anyone from EY WFH outside the US? Thinking of doing it for a few days, but not sure if I should tell my team since firm policy states we must be in the country.
Reposting here: Are there any remote volunteering opportunities that allow me to utilize my tech skillset? I'd like to help out in a way where I'd provide the most value.
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?
Curious if anyone here has successfully negotiated a remote work arrangement after getting an in-house offer?

Does anyone here struggle with balancing work and attending to children at home as a single mother.

For anyone missing a whiteboard while WFH: I picked up a big dry erase mat from Staples that I mounted on a wall. It doesn’t clean off as easily as an actual whiteboard but it does the job. They also make whiteboard paint you can put on your wall. The best one is made by a company called “remarkable” but it isn’t cheap.
In the past two weeks my work has picked up 10x what it was previously. Now I’m working 70+ hr weeks and often my projects are submitted nearly before deadline since I’m shuffling multiple at once. My team is understaffed and there’s no plan to hire people due to COVID-19. How do you manage to tackle the day instead of let it tackle you? I feel like no one knows how much I’m suffering since I’m WFH’ing and try to relay positive emotions over FaceTime or messages.

My professional life at the moment is far from ideal. I’ve been on quarantine (long story, but a good one) for the last seven years. Royalties from my books don’t pay the bills. My entrepreneurial pursuits remain hampered. For the interim, I’ve been looking for a remote opportunity where I can leverage my skills in marketing, sales, social media, and elsewhere for a decent sum. I have a social media presence which, in recent years, reached millions. There has to be something exciting I can do.
