Nadine Artemis’s official biography begins when she first combined flasks of essential oils to recreate Nina Ricci’s L’Air du Temps for a school science fair. These early botanical-inclinations led her on petal-pathed adventures in creating organic beauty balms, reviving elixirs, healing oral care and perfumed poetry to quench the natural yearnings of many.

Nadine opened North America’s first full concept Aromatherapy store, Osmosis, in 1994. Since that day she has received glowing reviews for her formulations in the Hollywood Reporter, Flare, the New York Times, Vogue and The National Post.

Nadine has addressed gatherings at conferences, appeared on television and radio shows, and she is a frequent commentator on health and beauty topics for national media outlets.

In addition to her innovative product work, Nadine is the author of two books: Renegade Beauty: Reveal and Revive Your Natural Radiance and Holistic Dental Care: The Complete Guide to Healthy Teeth and Gums. Her healing creations, along with her concept of “renegade beauty,” encourage effortlessness and inspire people to rethink conventional notions of beauty and wellness.

Celebrity fans include Shailene Woodley, Carrie-Anne Moss and Mandy Moore. Aveda founder, Horst Rechelbacher, calls Nadine “a pure flower of creativity.” Alanis Morissette describes her as “a true sense-visionary.”

089: Mark LaMaster | Uplifting Dads

Mark LeMaster describes himself as a K-Love listenin’, Dave Ramsey recommendin’, Bulletproof Coffee drinkin’, Nebraska Football followin’, Jeep Wrangler drivin’, high handicap golfin’, God-fearin’ father, husband, and son who wants to share his failures and successes to help other men improve their relationships with their children, bringing them all closer to God.

Mark LaMaster | Uplifting Dads

Mark LaMaster’s mission is to offer encouragement and inspiration for men to become the fathers they’ve always dreamed of being. He believes that all dads have an incredible, God-given opportunity to make a lasting positive impact on their children, their families, and their earthly homes.

A former nurse, Mark has authored two books:

  • Friday Night Lights: For Fathers and Sons, published in December 2015, is a game plan for dads to help develop their sons into the men God intended them to be.
  • Friday Night Lights: For Fathers and Daughters, published in May 2018, is a guide to producing ten episodes of your own personal TV series, covering topics from faith and friendships to social media and self-image.

Mark wants to make sure each and every dad out there has access to positive, encouraging, and faith-filled resources about how to be the best parent they can be. He seeks to build a sense of community among like-minded fathers who want to learn from, strengthen, and support one another in a space free of judgment or criticism. Mark creates faith-filled fatherhood resources because the Bible has instructed us (dads) to help one another along on our earthly journey while we look with hope to our ultimate destination: heaven.

Mark lives in Minnesota with his beautiful bride, Jen, and two amazing children, Hannah and Lincoln.

Scott Beebe is the founder of My Business On Purpose, a business coaching, training, and strategy group that helps small business owners and organizational leaders transition from working IN their businesses to working ON their businesses. Scott is also the host of the Business On Purpose podcast; a weekly podcast where Scott interviews small business owners who share insights into how they are living their business on purpose.

Scott was born in Washington DC and lived in Charlotte NC, Houston TX, Portland OR, and Greenville SC before graduating from the University of South Carolina in 1997. After college, he moved to Texas with his new bride Ashley, where he attended and graduated Southwestern Theological Seminary, then worked as a legal drug-salesman for Pfizer selling Lipitor, Viagra, and other well-known products.

Among his many roles, Scott has served as Associate Pastor at First Baptist Church of Euless TX; he founded and served as lead pastor for LifePointe Church in Burleson TX; and he was international administrator for HELP, Inc., where he worked with multi-cultural teams both in the U.S. and Nigeria to build a platform for sustainable partnership with Nigerians through a variety of sectors, including business, finance, and agriculture.

Over the years, Scott’s numerous roles have provided him with experience in direct and B2B sales, designing and implementing organizational strategy, training and development, marketing, fundraising, teaching and speaking. The diversity of his roles and locations have shaped his unique view of businesses, churches, and cultures around the world.

From this unique perspective, Scott created the Four Steps To Business Freedom; a six-month, group coaching experience built exclusively for businesses under $25mm and under 25 employees. The program:

  • Helps owners and organizational leaders develop and implement a vision, a mission, and a set of values;
  • Helps them build systems and processes to liberate them from the chaos of working IN the business;
  • Leads weekly, virtual mastermind groups to uncover and implement the things they cannot see.

Scott loves to read and learn. He and his wife Ashley travel whenever possible and make enjoying time with their three children a priority. Scott and his family live in Bluffton, SC (near Hilton Head), where they spend most of their time on the water!
