I have been lucky to have a boss who gives me some space. However, there are times when he DOES micromanage and I start feeling claustrophobic! He doesn't do it often - just on some projects - but I don't appreciate it at all!
True, there's always the option of getting another job. But with the economy, this is perhaps not the most viable option for everyone. Now I see why it's better to have no one else as your boss - just yourself. This is my goal in the near future.:-)
Working for yourself is not without shortcomings, though it certainly has its advantages! You can select your customers, your hard work benefits your own company rather than a big corp. that doesn't appreciate you and you can set your own hours!
