Since an early age, Nathan exhibited a strong work ethic and unrivaled entrepreneurial spirit. Before entering college, Nathan served in the United States Navy Reserve for six years as a way to fund his college education. While attending Texas State University, Nathan teamed up with his brother to work with their family’s pen and pencil company known as Calladium Corporation. Upon graduation, Nathan moved back to Dallas where he began developing business for a small graphic design company.
After two years, Nathan started his own advertising firm, Holmes and Dean, which focused on internal work inside of Calladium Corporation as well as contract work for third party clients. After selling Calladium Corporation, Nathan continued Holmes and Dean for another two years focusing on a wide range of clients. After reaching a high level of success so early in his life, Nathan’s wife Patty suggested they find a hobby to enjoy as a couple. One night while watching television, Nathan was inspired to explore the world of beekeeping when he saw an AT&T commercial with a woman in a bee suit, keeping bees. A quick internet search for local beekeeping companies led Nathan to North Dallas Honey Company, where, much to his wife’s surprise, he purchased a hive to keep in his parents’ backyard.
After a year of working internally with North Dallas Honey Company and maintaining a flourishing bee hive at home, Nathan’s love of beekeeping sweetened when he purchased the company to start his own sweet venture in 1997. Soon after, Nathan began to serve with an international church planting ministry, then Global Missions Fellowship, now e3 Partners Ministry, where he served from 1998 until 2010 as the Vice President for Partnership Development.
Nathan was also the driving force behind the nationwide “I Am Second” media campaign that highlights stories of hundreds of transformed lives through the grace of Jesus Christ. Nathan Sheets’ infectious, friendly and humble presence serves as an invaluable asset to Nature Nate’s success. Happily consumed by and dedicated to his leadership role at Nature Nate’s, Nathan is now actively focused on developing Nature Nate’s Honey and other products throughout the United States. He currently resides in Frisco with his wife, Patty, and their four children: Hudson, Haddon, Sophie and Samuel.
