Hello distinguished guys and gals! Having been a technician since 2007 and the recent layoff/ multiple job denials, I have decided to pursue the risky career in IT consultancy. But the first question is should I incorporate or do business as a sole proprietor? 

I plan on being a D.B.A regardless and getting the name of my business trademarked. If I incorporate, do I get the "business name",Inc. trademarked or just "business name" trademarked? 

Also any advise on being a "solopreneur" is welcomed.

Talk to an attorney. They will give you better advice that you will get here and they will be able to address the law in your location. Personally I'd recommend contract work, I've been doing it for the past few years. Provided you know your stuff you can use it to get into a company. Worst case you expand your skill set.
