Ditch The Act by Ryan Foland and Leonard Kim was a special read for the Bird Rock Systems team! This book opened up our minds to how we can elevate our own personal brand by being vulnerable, relatable, and honest in order to make a long-lasting and meaningful impression.
Thanks to our CEO, we were able to have a virtual meet and greet with one of the authors! Ryan Foland helped our team work through some of the exercises in his book to give us a better understanding of how we can simply introduce ourselves and answer the question, "What do you do?" in a way that emphasizes our value but not giving too much away. The idea of the exercise was to keep your answers simple, yet intriguing by following his simple formula. What is the formula? You'll have to read the book, to find out!
You could say we're the CEO of choosing amazing books!
We are so lucky to have added FIVE new members to the Bird Rock System's team! They all have already been adding so much value to our team and we can't wait to see what they are going to accomplish with us.

We can't believe it has been over a year now when everyone's lives changed as we entered the pandemic. One of the things that kept people connected to family and work was the technology they already had. See our article on ChannelBytes to see technology has evolved one year later.
Whether your company is still working from home or making plans to head back to the office, cloud solutions like Microsoft Azure are still on the rise.
"Many modern organizations already rely on a variety of Microsoft products for daily operations, including Microsoft 360, Outlook, and SharePoint. As such, Azure is specifically designed to seamlessly integrate with these and other Microsoft tools so your team can switch between products effortlessly without needing to log in every time they switch tools or move necessary data manually, allowing them to remain focused on the bigger picture."
DONATE A SURF BOARD, CHANGE A LIFE
We are looking for surf board and boogie board donations, in partnership with Mi Sueno Foundation, to give to the children at Door of Faith orphanage in Baja, California. The orphanage is close to the coast and we know all board donations will be put to great use. The ocean is a special place, and being able to open up that world to the children of Baja can be life changing!
Please contact me directly, firstname.lastname@example.org. If you would like to donate a board (short boards preferred), please include a photo if possible. Learn more ways to support Door of Faith Orphanage at https://www.corazondevida.ord/contact
