How much does an AWS Migration project bring in? Is it a viable business to become an AWS Migration expert? If I complete all the certification levels, get a few diverse migration projects under my belt, and set up a firm with specialists, how much would such a company make from AWS Migration projects?

Been freelancing for the last year and doing well. I was offered a FT role, but I don’t need it. I’m on the fence if I should take it or keep FL. I have jobs lined up. Is it a bad idea to go FT?
