Want to do creative work? Start your own business.

Anita Sharpe explains in this Worthwhile post that there’s no room left for creativity in big companies:

“At large companies, you lose sight of creating a product,” said Siegel, who is in the midst of launching the Gospel Music Channel.

Most large companies, even those built on creativity, work off an assembly-line model. Everyone touches just a small piece of the product without being able to take much creative ownership.
