My colleague Sam and I are friendly and caring people. We’re good friends, but when we talk about work issues, there is immediate and complete misunderstanding! I don't know why! What should I do? Help!
My parents don't understand me. They want me to find a decent, stable job and get married...but that’s the life they want for me! I want to live in my own way. Every time we talk it ends up in arguments and frustration. Help! How can I change them?
My boss always changes his plan at the last minute. I often feel very frustrated, angry and stressed-out because it is such a waste of time, and I have to re-do everything within an impossible period of time. Help! How can I tell my boss without offending him that if he keeps doing this, my work will never be finished?
Help!!! I think I’m a slow learner? I hate to say this but compared with others, I am always left behind when learning new things. When I see others learn faster than me, I feel under confident! Help! How can I re-gain my confidence?
Help - I have no work-life balance! I work from 9am to about 9pm, 5 days a week, and often weekends too. There’s just so much to do and not enough time. I feel really tired recently and I fear a burnout. How do I get a proper work-life balance? Should I just go home earlier? Should I start work earlier? Hire more people? I’m already having all my meals at my desk!

I’m having trouble with a major life-changing career decision!! Help! I’ve worked in an interior design firm for years and it’s a nice place - easy life, good money, nice co-workers. Yet, I feel something is missing and I want to achieve more! And what I really want is to set up my own business. I was so excited about this until my friends told me it’s too risky and I’ll end up wasting my time and money. What they said makes so much sense. What if I am wrong? What should I do?

I’ve been working in finance for 10 years, but recently all I think about is baking cakes. I dream of tasty cakes all day and night! It sounds crazy, but I want to quit my job for this. I’m 33 years old, not a kid! At the same time, I’m very unhappy. What should I do?
