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.
Anyone use and recommend the kneeling ergonomic chair? Debating ordering one because my home office chair is really uncomfortable!
Any recs for an ergonomic all-in-one Bluetooth keyboard & mouse/trackpad (Pc compatible)?
Recently saw an article saying that Amazon will allow employees to wfh. Does the employee need to be in that state / within driving distance? Interested in some roles there but not looking to relocate.
Any sub $300 office chair recommendations?
I am lateraling because my firm has forced us back into the office 5 days a week. My office isn’t super social and we are all slammed, so going into the office consists of sitting alone in my office, just like I would at home, except I wasted an hour getting ready and commuting, am in uncomfortable clothes, and am less efficient. I am actually miserable sitting alone in a cold, drab office as opposed to hanging out in a beautiful home office with my dog. People in power: take note.
Struggling to decide on a new chair for my home office. I really want a cute one (and a pretty desk) but also really need the support/comfort of a real office chair. My current one is cuter and it kills my back. Has anyone actually found a cute one that’s supportive? Or do i just need to suck it up and settle for one that doesn’t match my decor?
Anybody have terrible wrist pain and bruising happing on their right (dominant) arm? I have a standing desk and standing chair.. not sure if too high or too low or if a padding issue. I have a mouse
Trying to avoid paying an accountant, can I actually write off home office space/mileage if I was just permalancing for 3 months last year? Shouldn’t the 7 months of W2 take care of this 1099 shit?
Folks on H-1B, do you really need to be in your home office (or within commutable distance during COVID) 1 day per week? How strictly is this enforced, if at all? Thank you!
I’ve been in the industry for about 20 years, hundreds of pitches, dozens of speaking events at big shows. I used to be a natural when presenting. Fluid, clever and insightful while keeping it friendly and conversational. Since covid and WFH my presentation focus is totally off. Low energy, nervous, dry mouth, reading off slides, hard to keep my mind in the bigger picture or focus on the story. Womp womp. Really getting me down and not sure how to get the magic back. Depressing.
Question on taxes, I worked in another country this year (although remained allocated to my home office in the US). When filing will I have to do anything special and/or claim foreign income?
Would you accept capping billable hours at 40/week in exchange for being able to work while completely remote?

What’s the best way to find a job? I’m tired of applying on LinkedIn, websites, cold messaging recruiters for an interview. I just can’t seem to land something. Any feedback?

When you always dial into Skype calls because of a broken computer and everyone thinks you're sus :(
I’m on a 10-day solo retreat in the middle of nowhere. I’m reading The Autobiography of Malcom X. I’m not sure how I’m going to make it back to work, y’all. The pandemic has allowed me to “be” without the gaze of whiteness. I’m tempted to walk away from the Corporate world and all that comes with it. I don’t find it validating and it feels like the hamster wheel of meaninglessness. Am I alone? How do you deal? Do you have an exit plan/strategy?
So bothered by the way the client talked to me today on a call for just doing my job and then they act all cordial once my manager joined. I just can’t shake it. How do you all cope with difficult clients?

Funny how some (most?) firms dont give first year associates a bonus. Because broke people fresh out of school don't need the money...
Just found out I’m getting promoted from Sr AD to ACD. Really happy, but they haven’t told me what the salary increase is yet. What’s reasonable to expect? Another 20k?
How do you deal with bad Google reviews? In my case, it's an angry beneficiary, not even my client.
