I have been working as an employee in a big restaurant in Italy but although I am satisfied with the money I make I know very well that I deserve something more.I have never felt independent ,I need to be always submissive in general I deserve a better treatment.
The whole restaurant is based on my own  effort  and techniques .I do not find it fair for myself.
So I have decided to open a restaurant on my own .
Some people tell me to stay in my job because when I open a restaurant then I will be completely occupied.I won't have any free time for myself.
I can not accept it for myself .I think that I can work for myself and not for somebody else.
My first choice will be Greece.
What would you prefer to be in your life?An employer or an employee?

Years ago,I work for somebody'cause I have no experience...

After years past,I would prefer to work for myself...if you have enough cash in flow,run business by yourself,there is no question for  me...

there is one sentence while I read the book: RICH DAD AND POOR DAD.;Someone who is afraid of lossing money,would never win money...

***always to be yourself***

The odd thing about your question comes from the reality of being a good employer in that a good employer knows that they work for their staff and in that way are actually employees OF their workers.

Similar actually to your intended venture. If you start a restaurant, you become a worker for others, especially your clients. You can call it working for yourself, but if you only do things to suit you rather than your guests you will not be successful - so, you work FOR your guests.

It isn't really a semantic argument either - but one that deals with the reality.

I employee about 100 people - and I have little free time, have to be cognizant of all aspects of my business, spend so much time away from home that falling asleep in my own bed is difficult as I am no longer used to it.

I thought I would be able to relax a bit when I stopped working for someone else and started my own company...how incorrect I was. I work longer hours, have less spending money, and heavier responsibility than I ever had as just an "employee" - BUT, I do enjoy the fact that I am the one whose decisions mean success or failure...and besides, it keeps me young.

So go for it. Start your restaurant, Work your a*s off and enjoy your success, but don't think you wont still be an employee.

i'd like to be employee when i have no money;
and i'd like to fool around when i have big money.

i'd like to be an employer only when i have little money, and i want more money.
