Who says there is not a career in flight instructing? Another option to a great career. Wait until you see what they are dong in California!

So true!  There is a shortage of good instructors on the Olympic Peninsula.  Neil and I are very busy with 9 regular students plus BFRs.
Haven't had a CFI applicant in years.  Most pilots say they can't afford to flight instruct.  I encourage them to charge what they need to.

Did you know pilots are paying airlines to fly passengers? The most expensive seat on the plane is in the flightdeck!
