I've been a librarian for 10 years and I can feel myself burning out. Also, I can feel myself not making enough money. What else can I do for a living?
Details: public librarian, middle management (i.e. branch manager), reference background, better at big-picture stuff than keeping track of the day-to-day minutiae, pretty smart but kind of ADD, comfortable with tech but not a programmer or sysadmin (though the latter is probably doable with a little training), generally good at my job & regarded as a leader by my peers, can't afford to take on any more student debt.
I seem to be able to help other people brainstorm/research similar questions, but come up empty when trying to apply it to myself.
