Developer Job or Freelance Business

Coming from 20 years as a it engineer it struck me that although a developer job would be great quite a difficult and time consuming task. I’m very interested though in using my newly acquired skill set to start my own company up and start approaching companies in my local area Essex , UK myself for developmemt work
I would be interested if anyone here has some tips. Also if there are people on here from Essex and would be interested in meeting up I’ve setup a freecodecamp

Pardon me, are you asking if we suggest you to do Freelance web development or a Job ?

That’s Ok I’m sure the route I want to take is freelance rather than a job. As this will give me more control. I was just looking to see if other people had this opinion , and also trying to link up with other developers in my local area
