When you are at career crossroads and you want to step out of technology development, what's the one road you should consider, keeping aside personal skills of course. What happens when you are multi skilled and you can't narrow down on one skill?

And after a failed startup what do you do?

Don't know, but personally something tires me about lack of direction.

Talk to people you know in difficult roles and ask them what they like and don't like about what they do. Start to make a list of things that sound interesting to you (or things you want to avoid). That should help guide you towards what you may want to do next.
