Ron Halversen – The Web Development Consultant Your Business Needs To Get To The Next Level – Clarity Ventures, Inc. Self-appointed leaders in the tech space are a dime a dozen.

When it comes to leadership, that is exactly what has lacked in the Raider organization for what seems like decades.

Many people have different definitions of success from their business. Fancy cars in the driveway, a big house by the lake, designer clothes, while there are others that like things a little simpler and invest in travel. To the truly successful, there is no better currency in all the world. When you can’t travel, the next best thing is making your home one that can give you a sense of “being away from it all,” and that starts with updating your outdoor living space. Start with patio umbrellas for the shade you will need to really soak in the mornings with coffee and the afternoons with tea.
