Given todays scenario, being Jack of all Trades is not a bad idea at all. With your experience, you are in a position where you can don any hat, rather than limiting yourself to just a few things. And I personally don't think that you cannot earn with such a broad skillset.

For being a master, If I were you, I would begin by listing down what I would really like to master of all the items that I would normally do. Then search on the Microsoft database certification list and see which one fits what I jotted down. If you have any existing certification that has expired, upgrading them should be on top of your mind.
