Nabil Ansara’s love for business and sales started at an early age. Coming from a family of entrepreneurs, customer service and business came as second nature.

At the age of 11, he was selling jewelry at his family’s jewelry store inside one of the busiest malls in southeastern Michigan.

By the time he graduated high school, he was managing several locations and was leading the sales chart, capitalizing on his ability to create and maintain relationships.

Nabil’s natural ability to connect with people and show them real value has always been the key to his success. After graduating high school, Nabil enrolled at Davenport University where he sharpened his marketing skills, helping his knowledge in sales and entrepreneurship.

Being fascinated with the music industry and learning on how to market his services, Nabil decided to open up a recording studio in 2004. His goal was to supply local artists and advertising agencies with original music for their commercials and create a hub for local recording artists to have a creative space to work in, which he ran for 15 years before making a switch into the managed service world of the IT industry.

After 12 months of working for a local IT provider in southeastern Michigan, Nabil and his family decided to take a leap of faith and relocate to Phoenix Arizona. Through God’s will and persistence, Nabil met Randy Reed the owner and operator of Team Logic IT in Phoenix Arizona. TeamLogic IT was exactly what he needed to take his career to the next level!

Today, he is the director of business development for three offices in the Phoenix area! There is nothing that makes Nabil happier than being able to help businesses grow through technology.

My Little Mascara Club is a subscription club that delivers the one makeup item that most women will not leave the house without – mascara.

At the heart of the club experience is their mission: to help women feel better about themselves and life. Not only does their mascara provide a confidence boost, but each customer discovers all kinds of “happy moments” along the way.

Recently touted in the press as Top 5 Best Beauty Subscription of 2020, their “little” mascara features innovations in both form and function, while offering a cleaner, more natural formula than most other mascara products.

Christie Kerner has been leading people and building companies for over 25 years. She’s built a few companies that she owned, including one she sold, and she has been a founding leader to help build a few companies for others.

Clearly, she loves building companies. So much so, that she ran the Center for Entrepreneurship at ASU, has helped build startup communities internationally, and is regularly as advisor to other founders.

Her latest venture, My Little Mascara Club, launched publicly in March 2020 and has quickly taken off.

It was long before Christie got a Masters in Management and Leadership that she fell in love with the human side of business. Her lifelong study of emotional intelligence paired with her love for building successful businesses – and helping others do the same – combine to make her an excellent leader and advisor to those who care about creating amazing companies and working with the best talent.

Kyle McIntosh

With a background in marketing, in various for profit and not for profit companies, Kyle McIntosh wondered, “How can I pair the passion and commitment to community progress of a non-profit with the sustainability and reach of a for profit company?” From this question and perspective a mission evolved to tear down the false distinction between the two sectors and to promote companies with Conscious Capitalism® business models through MAC6.

Kyle is the President and Creative Excitant of MAC6.  Day to day, his main operational role is on the “spaces” side of the business, focusing on creating thriving communities in the commercial office buildings, the co-working space, and the co-manufacturing space.  The other role that he plays is that of EOS implementer, working with clients to bring the Entrepreneurial Operating System, from the book Traction® to their businesses.  Additionally, he sits on the boards of Conscious Capitalism Arizona, telling the stories of good businesses in Arizona, and The Tempe Chamber of Commerce, sustaining Tempe’s quality of life and keeping our community and economy vibrant.
