Gaining Professional Independence
Jun 29, 2021 Season 1 Episode 39
John Neral

Have you ever felt as if you were “professionally independent?” It’s that moment when you know you are trusted and depended upon to do high-quality work and don’t have someone hovering over you for each task. 

 

As we near the 4th of July Holiday, I’m taking some time on this episode to explore what “professional independence” is and where you can find it in your career. Plus, we will explore how micromanagers impact our careers. And if you have ever considering going into business for yourself, I’ll pull back the curtain on my entrepreneurial journey and why being my boss isn’t always so glamorous.
