    3. You’re Beard! You take a more laid-back and quiet approach to life but you always know everything that’s going on. Your attention to detail and the support you give to others is what makes you special.
    4. You’re Nathan! You always have your teams back and will do anything to help them succeed. You may seem timid at first, but the care you have for the people around you makes you an invaluable friend.
