The whole team is on the show! Jon, Helen, Jason, Josh, and Justin are on the mics to discuss our recent team retreat to Nashville, Tennessee. If you're wondering what a retreat looks like for a remote team, you'll get a lot out of this episode. We also reveal some of our exploits in Music City:
"Going to a Tiki Bar is usually a mistake."
"For 51 weeks, our small team works efficiently. Our team retreat week is a culmination of celebrations, milestones, birthdays, and holidays we might have missed. It's special to condense these moments into one week and see everyone in person to celebrate our achievements from the previous year." – Helen

- How to plan a team retreat: Planning a retreat can be a daunting task, so we wanted to share our learnings in the hopes that it’ll be helpful for other remote teams out there.
- The city you choose for your retreat will significantly influence the team's productivity and leisure activities.
- Be intentional and set aside time for planning and product discussions.
- A retreat is a great time for a remote team to celebrate milestones and achievements.
- Have a balance between work activities and fun activities.
- Simple activities like games or cards can be as fulfilling as fancy events.
