B. Starting your own web development business.

 Before you decide on starting your own web development business, you must evaluate whether being on your own is the right choice for you.

Being on your own has several advantages, such as: having the chance to make a lot more money than you can make working for someone else, job security, the chance to put your ideas into practice, and lots more.
