I have been working as a freelancer from 5 years (from first sem of my graduation) for various domains (mostly ERP's for textile industries and Graphics software for the same). Now I am about to complete my Master in Computer Application (around July 2011), Should I establish a proper business in IT sector or continue working as a freelancer. I am 22 now and doing business is not a child's game. I tried to get a job but facing problem due to low grades in my high school (my graduation grades are good [6.3] and masters is [7.2] till now).
I have great understanding of the projects development and clients interactions. I have delivered my applications to 25+ big companies and they are using it. Most of the peoples say to me that I should establish a business.
If I chose to establish a business, what are the steps should I take such as advertising, company promotion, hirings, etc etc.
There will be another problem I am seeing regarding hirings. As I am young enough, the person I will hire will be definitely elder than me. Will they listen to me or believe on what I say or plan to do?
What should I do?
