My favorite event of the year is FNCE! It is so special to me to meet my existing customers, embrace old colleagues and spread the word about NutritionJobs to new professionals. For most of us, making the trip is not easy but well worth the effort. It’s a lot of work preparing my family for my trip and getting my booth set up and running. FNCE is truly the most inspirational few days. So once again, FNCE was a major success.
