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?

My company’s new hybrid working model was finally announced. We’re in a high COL west coast city, but not tech so pay is mediocre. Option A is office/wfh combo. The office downsized, so hot desking 3 days, WFH 2 days. No stipend for supplies, internet, phone. Option B- We can apply for FT remote if we move, but will get a paycut for lower COL areas. No raises for higher COL moves. Still no stipend. Multi-billion $ company, did great bc of the pandemic. How mad should I be?

Is it a good idea to live in a bunch of different cities for a month each while WFH is still a thing? I'm young and it sounds like a fun thing to do before I'm more tied down, but I'm slightly worried I'll never have enough time to make friends anywhere I go. Perhaps I can get a baseline amount of social interaction through dates and rec leagues. Any thoughts on if this is a good idea or what heuristics you would recommend I use to select the cities?

Thoughts on big4 moving to a productivity model over hours model?
