I’ll go ahead and assume you went with option two. The opportunity to innovate is something most of us want more of in our daily work lives. Yet often, we feel we can’t be more creative at work because of factors beyond our control. Perhaps your company is risk-averse and likes to play it safe, perhaps your targets are intimidatingly aggressive.”][tm_spacer size=”lg:50″][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/2″ xs_spacing=”margin_bottom:30″][tm_image image=”54″][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/2″][tm_image image=”55″][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][tm_spacer size=”lg:50″][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/2″][tm_heading tag=”p” custom_google_font=”” text=”Your entire energy changes when you’re standing.

In this respect, the services have been able to leverage the great amounts of data they gathered over three years’ worth of studies to make their standards up to date and operationally relevant. We found over the last few years that in some cases we were doing things because that’s the way we’ve always done them.”][/vc_column][/vc_row]
[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]During the summer my wife and I got to go on an amazing road trip in Vancouver Mountain with our good friends Samuel and Hildegunn Taipale. Norway is just amazing landscapes after amazing landscapes. Definitely a place worth visiting if you ever get the chance! Thanks to Visit Norway for making our trip possible.
Now that the weather is warming, we can’t think of nothing better than the two-hour ride up to Hudson for the weekend. For a truly special stay, Haviland House checks all the boxes for a trip upstate: a comfortable stay in an elegant home with dreamy interiors.
“Thought to be the first structure on Fifth Street, the house was built in 1825 and later named for its original owner, Steamboat Captain John T.”
Today, the three-bedroom vacation home sleeps six and is filled with gorgeous antiques, original wide plank flooring, multiple wood-burning fireplaces, and a screened porch and backyard that is perfect for dining al fresco. One of the best draws to the house is its close proximity to all of the city’s wonderful restaurants and shops.[/vc_column_text][tm_spacer size=”lg:20″][tm_heading tag=”h5″ custom_google_font=”” text=”LOVE WHAT YOU DO.

And although the house comes with a fully-equipped kitchen, if you would prefer to dine out, we recommend Fish & Game, one of our favorite farm-to-table restaurants serving seasonal food in a former 19th century blacksmith shop.”][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/2″][tm_heading tag=”p” custom_google_font=”” text=”Haviland House is available to rent throughout the year from Red Cottage, a boutique rental agency with a curated collection of beautiful vacation homes upstate with properties ranging from cozy cottages and rustic cabins to airy farmhouses and palatial estates.”][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][/vc_column][/vc_row]
