Natural progression up from A+
What is the natural process upward (certs-wise) after getting one's A+? I love the hands-on work, and I don't want to go into administration if it means doing mainly software configurations (like one would do with an MCSE). I suppose one could be a helpdesk supervisor or something, but is there anything else further up the career ladder than this? I want to find something that's also going to pay the bills, so unless helpdesk can eventually progress to $40k/yr., I would want something that could support a family.
