My new job has a $500 wfh stipend I need to use within 30 days of my start date. I have a button standing desk, an ergo chair (it’s not Herman Miller but I’ve never noticed discomfort), a monitor that’s an older dell model with off color accuracy and sits on a stand. Have a keyboard, mouse, intuos tablet, iPad. I do motion graphic illustration etc. Any suggestions? An Apple Watch? lol

Second vote for headphones! I like my AirPods, mostly because they’re wireless and lightweight, I don’t mind having them in all day.

Does anyone know of any remote contract jobs in auditing? Specifically, risk management, compliance or internal auditing? I’m able to work 20+ hours a week. I’m a detailed-oriented person and and a great communicator. I also have a lot of experience in presentation design and enjoy doing those a lot. I would prefer a contract job receiving a 1099 and am not interested in being a w-2 employee. Please let me know if any of you have any referrals. Thank you and I appreciate any tips you can give.
