“I knew right then that I was home.  It was validation.  I didn’t have to fight this fight, learn this thing, or walk alone in it.  There are others that are walking right alongside me, maybe a little bit further, maybe half a step back but we’re all on the same path together.  And NAMC has always been there on every phone call, question, or introduction, and then some… it’s really a reflection of NAMC’s integrity. There are just so many words that can’t even touch what NAMC means to the success of our people.”
