Vulnerability, life change, and making honey | Podcast Interview with Nathan Sheets, CEO of Nature Nate’s Honey

For those that played sports, we have all heard the metaphor, “to leave it all on the field.”

Basically, give it your best. Don’t leave anything back.

If there is such a metaphor in podcasting, then this week’s podcast episode with Nathan Sheets is it.

Nathan shares it all. He is an open book.

However, not in an ingenious way, but in an inspiring way.

Nathan is an incredible man of faith, but as most captivating stories go, it came with some valleys.

He shares the ups and downs, highs and lows – yet does it in a way to help us all.

I loved our conversation, learned a lot from it, and I am confident you will as well.

Nathan not only has an impressive personal story but also a professional one as well.

He started Nature Nate’s Honey and has grown it to one of the best-known honey brands in the country.

So to say the least, there is a lot to learn in this episode.

In this episode, you’ll discover… 

  • Why being a parent is harder than being a CEO (and how humility makes both jobs easier) ([4:06]
  • How figuring out your children’s “love bank” helps you avoid having agonizing regrets as they grow up ([5:55]
  • The insidious way many parents use travel as a way to relax from parenting ([11:16]
  • How to guide your children towards their full potential (without being overbearing or too critical) ([13:43]
  • The weird way being desperate helps you get closer to God (and how to ask for salvation before hitting rock bottom) ([22:06]
  • Why you have to fail more often if you want success (and why this applies to your personal life as much as it does in business) ([24:54]
  • The wicked way watching porn haunts you for decades after and cripples your marriage ([26:44]

Nathan Sheets Bio

Nathan Sheets got the nickname “Nature Nate” in college because he was a nature lover and outdoorsman.

Nature Nate’s Honey Company is now the #1 branded honey in the U.S. and employs over 80 employees.  Nathan is passionate about developing a company that is driven by more than the bottom line — measuring success not just by what we achieve, but also by what we contribute to others.  As Nathan likes to say, “The Lord has blessed us so that we can be a blessing to others.”

How are you looking to finish the year?

Do you need to get unstuck? Do you need to clarify your next moves?

Check this out.  Maybe it will help.

We launched the ‘Confident and Consistent Leader’ Challenge in June to a group of leaders.

Each of those participants had success from the program!

How do I know?

Well, they either told me or put it in the follow-up survey……but none of them asked for their money back!

Actually, some of them have continued on with coaching!!

Well, due to the success, we launched another cohort in September.

The same thing happened!

All participants had success, nobody asked for a refund, and some continued on with coaching.

So, as they say, “if it isn’t broke……..”

We are launching another cohort on November 1.
