  1. I am an “exempted” furloughed federal employee during this and previous shutdowns. This means that I have to report for work every day until the end of the shutdown. 
  2. I am a 45 year old single mom who has worked in the mental health field for several years, I would like to make a career change, but I am afraid to do so. 
  3. I’m a doctor and words cannot express how much I hate it. 
  4. I have a very interesting job as I am a life coach hired by a company to coach their employees to reach their personal and professional dreams. What should I do next?
