If you're just joining my newsletter, welcome 👋🏼 I'd like to highlight two articles that aren't new, but I've just re-read in the past week that really resonate with me.

How To Be Successful by Sam Altman –  Regardless of your profession/industry, this article sheds some sage advice for what differentiates "successful" people from others. - Why You're Having Trouble Hiring by Blair Reeves –  As we've been discussing created a distributed workforce more and more at Hy-Vee, I keep coming back to this article. It highlights some solid reasons why you'd want to work in a low cost of living area versus SF/NYC.
