Kangaroo was attending a seminar by a business leader who had started 15 business in his lifetime. Most were successful and he sold them off to begin a new business. While sitting and listening she paid extra attention to one point he had made – managers alone create success for their employees. Kangaroo realized that nothing could be truer. As a manger she gave her employees the right opportunities to get ahead in the business and create great things. After leaving the seminar she realized that going back to her business meant she needed to go back with the knowledge that it was on her shoulders.
