Microsoft might have flexed its My Way or the Highway? muscle a bit too hard during former CEO's Stave Ballmer's reign, but the house that Bill Gates built is becoming a bit more accommodating now. it's not going to pull the Sharepoint carpet out from anyone, it's just going to make it irresistible to move to Office 365 and OneDrive and, get this, money won?t be the main motivator.

Each week, we’ll tackle a new topic--building critical knowledge and instilling a recovery-first mindset that will carry you through even the toughest situations.
