Hi! Welcome!

Although from the technical side of things, it may not matter what you get into. However, I would think somewhere you have a real passion (for something).

It's always easier when you've got a passion for something. Business isn't work anymore. Do you have one? That's where I would start.

Hope this helps! Good luck!

How about manufacturing something in the related field you were in. I'm sure you have made quite a few contacts while in this business, and it would be much easier to start something off if you already know the industry, and have people that you can easily connect with.

You should go in a business where you feel like you can work on it 18 hours a day, get some sleep and work again.

A business should be something you love other than something that just makes money. You can't make much money if you don't love what you do.
