Don’t Mind the Fire
I’m writing this week’s issue on my way back from our company’s annual retreat. We are a remote company, so these weeks are crucial for us to build and strengthen the relationships that sustain as throughout the rest of the year. This year we went to a beautiful little town called Stowe, Vermont. Here are a couple of photos from one of my trail runs.
Our company’s approach to remote work might interest some of you. Take a look at how we define the difference between a good and a bad remote worker, as well as our CEO’s recent podcast on Indiehackers.
Have a wonderful week, and stay safe!

📖 Quote of the week
“I think that says a lot about a person: how they handle being second best. Do they work on themselves? Or attack the person ahead of them?”
