To those hired during the COVID-WFH era, how have you adjusted to the work, team culture and company culture? Some background on me, I got my first job outside of college during this wfh era. It was nice in the beginning, but I feel like it’s slowly chipping on my productivity. Thoughts?

Need a wfh setup / monitor. Recommendations?
WFH with a kid is making me less productive, so I end up working 30% longer hours to make up for it. But the longer I work, I get diminishing returns in productivity, so I have to work longer still. At this point, my mental stamina is just worn out. How do I fix this?
Is doing freelance work on the side (when I’m off the clock, of course) considered taboo? Considering signing up for Fiverr to make some fun money but I don’t want any bad blood with my current job because I really like it and am not planning on leaving any time soon.

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?
