11-20: You can definitely do it! With the right help and prep.
You have entrepreneurial instincts and what it takes to build your own solopreneur consulting business. However you are torn. You know this could be the right thing for you but taking the leap seems scary, maybe even careless, in a time of high market uncertainty. Then again, your conventional path is no guarantee of better things to come either. You could still get fired down the road, and find yourself job-hunting in a shrinking market. Taking back control of your professional life proactively may seem counter-intuitive at first but more fulfilling in the long run.
