Tignes, in the French Alps, is an inspirational ski resort. It is one of the only snow guaranteed resorts and offers something for every level of skier.

The isolation will facilitate a new approach to thinking and the clean air may inspire some new ideas. If nothing else, a trip here will clear your head for what is coming in 2014.
Amsterdam might have been one of Steve Job’s favorite cities on earth. It’s a place where eclectic innovation abounds, with plenty of diverse sights, smells and activities to inspire. From the magic of the tulip fields, to ultra-modern pay-as-you-go public restrooms, the cafes, canal boat rides, historic buildings and delicious dinners it can be as non-stop or as laid back of a vacation as you would like. Though, no matter what your itinerary is, you are sure to find something to spark a creative idea for your real estate business. One popular web hosting firm just opened a European data center here in order to deliver better service for those seeking to reach prospects in Africa, the Middle East and Eastern Europe.

Ice skating and snow serve as a refreshing change for those spending the rest of the year in a sun drenched oasis like South Florida or Southern California. Plus, for those in the real estate game, New York provides a chance to see what is going on with the new tax free Start-up NY zones, take a look at how investors are making so much on flipping houses in Brooklyn, or even scoop up a massive discount on a home in the Hamptons.
