Nate’s Monday Morning Message 

“My father gave me the greatest gift anyone could give another person, he believed in me.” - Jim Valvano

Welcome to Nate’s Monday Message…hard to believe we are already into the month of June and summer is definitely here! Next Sunday is Father’s Day and naturally, one of my favorite days to celebrate with my family. Being a father has taught me some of the most important lessons in life and I was blessed with a second opportunity later in my life when Mila was born. In all my accomplishments, being a father to my three children has been the most rewarding.

While I don’t have a close relationship with my own father, it has served as a good reminder to be there for my own children, regardless of what it takes. Any man can be a father, but it takes a real man to show up day after day with love in his heart and a determination to create a good life for their child. I salute all those men reading this email who make a difference. Happy Father’s Day! Let’s make it a great week!
