    Going solo is definitely an exciting path but it has it's own risks/problems and requires an entirely different mindset.

    People management can be tricky, even for people who were trained to manage people. Not sure if it would be appropriate but you can adjust your path to be a leader not a manager.

    You'd still be responsible for people but you wouldn't be merely managing them. A team lead usually also is an IC but they are act more like an architect rather than the worker. Maybe your company culture would enable such a direction.
