When I started Nature Nate’s Honey Co., I was asked by a mentor, “What do you want to do with a honey company?” My quick answer was, “I want to help people.” I desired to create a company, not just sell a product. By creating a company, we would be able to provide fair-paying jobs and, ultimately through the sale of honey, be able to make a tangible impact in the lives of others. Always starting with making the most pure, best-tasting honey for our customers.
On my business card I have the title of “Chief Steward.” A steward is someone entrusted to manage and oversee something that does not belong to them. My belief of stewardship is grounded in the principle that everything I own has been provided to me by the Lord in order to steward for His purposes. It is motivating and challenging to maintain a proper understanding and perspective on this purpose of mine at Nature Nate’s.
My prayer is that I learn and grow from my successes and failures to be gifted a better understanding of the responsibilities. I have an appreciation for the opportunity to watch all the Lord accomplishes through Nature Nate’s. Living and working in authentic, transparent community with the Nature Nate’s family helps keep me accountable, always striving to be a better steward.
I thank God for allowing us to serve you and your family.
