Creative workers benefit from freedom, says actress Julia Louis-Dreyfus. That means seeking "responsibility and authority" with a degree of disregard for what the audience is going to think of your work. "If you start to think about, 'Who's going to like this? Why are they going to like it? Are they going to hate it?' you're going to die on the vine. It's the road to nowhere," Louis-Dreyfus says.
