If the latter, I'm debating whether to stay technical (.net/sql stuff) or get into the business side (project management, business analyst)

How much do benefits matter versus working for yourself where you got to pay everything (health insurance, retirement, double social security etc)

Do you think you can sustain a stable income only via consulting? Do you have a customer?

I'm talking in general.

Still waiting on some intelligent responses.

In a very general sense it is ALWAYS better to work for yourself.

Except it very quickly became obvious that no one in their right mind would hire OP as a consultant. 

So the best advice here would be to find a quiet job where you can blend in with the average Milton and hang on for as long as they don't realize you're a moron. :thumbup:

Then I would highly recommend OP learn something other than .net and get some real world experience before even considering becoming a freelancer.

WTF is wrong with .net?

Hell I know a guy who makes a good living by focusing just on VBA

You need to specialize in something relatively obscure if you want to make good money. Microsoft/SQL Server developers do not make good money.

And avoid the "Jack of all trades" trap. I know you are proud you know a little about a lot, but it makes you the lowest of the low.

It is not a question of better. It is a question of are you capable?

Are you capable of doing things on your own? Create value own your own? Sell that value on your own?
No? What kind of a fucking "Engineer" are you? Go kill yourself.

What is wrong with jack of all trades?

If that obscure thing goes away or others catch on and learn it than you are screwed

The answer is yes, hence the question in the OP.
