Olivia Baker Got an E-mail

Print Share
Olivia continues with her expansion plans, but she gives little regard to one of the members of her team, George Foster, who helped her at the beginning. Olivia has personalized her business too much, to the extent that she does not delegate and has all of the power, with the consequences this entails. She does not share responsibility with the rest of the team.
