I think that depends on what you want to do, what you’re good at, and things you’re not good at. Bolstering the resume with that background shouldn’t be filled to the brim with certs and courses. Imo, you should be filling it out with merit, real world impact, etc

So, I have almost the identical profile. I went from consulting to independent. I now do much more interesting work and work with far more senior executives. I also doubled my income.

There are platforms like Business Talent Group, Catalant, Graphite, Umbrex that do business development. They do take some margin, but I still keep far more of my billing rate. Key for me is that they can find really interesting projects that I would never identify on my own. Like the rest of consulting, the independent market is red hot right now too.
