About CraigW315
Joined April 2016
I have worked in the retail industry for... well, way too long... and after many years of earning just barely enough to get by, I am now looking for any opportunity to provide better lives for my wife and kids.

I enjoy working with people and learning new things. I like helping others develop their abilities and Wealthy Affiliate will be a great tool for that. I personally know many, many people who could benefit tremendously from the training here. I hope to learn as much as I can and share that with others. There is really no place I'd rather be right now.

Good evening Graig,

We have met along the way I think.
A family is the most important part of life, you are right, their well-being is a priority.
As you have been with Wealthy Affiliate a while I hope your hard work has started to pay off.
I hope you will find to check my third post on the world library, it is a great source for writing. In the fourth post have a look at the documentary, it might be of your interest.
Thanks for the follow and good luck.

My family is a big part of my motivation as well. Someone once told me I had to take care of myself because my family needs me, and I took that to heart and it helped keep me on my journey of weight loss and health. Now I believe that helping others with help me continue on that journey, while I make enough money to help my family.
Your bio has been motivational to me. Thank You for that.

Thank you.

Zig Ziglar said “You will get all you want in life, if you help enough other people get what they want.”

You'll probably find that most of the successful people here at WA are also the ones who are the most helpful, so I suspect that you will do rather well.

Best of luck to you!

Hi Craig!

It's a pleasure to meet you. I enjoyed your message on my profile. It looks like WA is full of us like-minded people, seeking knowledge, wanting to share and, teach that knowledge and find financial freedom. You have a lot of great content here, I'm going to dive in and check it out. Thanks for sharing!

Thank you for the follow as well:)

All the best,

CraigW315 Premium
Thank you as well.

Every so often, I come across a profile or comment from someone here that just "clicks" with me, like your profile did. I usually then find myself looking forward to future posts by that person because I tend to be in sync with their way of thinking.

Hi Craig. When it comes to working for someone else I fully agree with you that you earn just enough to get by. I think this opportunity at WA is a great one. I have just joined and am still going through the training but so far so good. Have an awesome day.
CraigW315 Premium
Best of luck to you. I love seeing people here succeed.

Sounds awesome, Craig. I can totally appreciate where you are coming from. I was an educator in a parochial school setting for far too long. Now this is my side kick and new interest. Gotta keep life fresh and exciting I say. I hope we can interact from time to time. Your anniversary is coming up! Celebrate it, guy!
CraigW315 Premium
Yes, I signed up in April, but I only really started to get serious around October or so. Still, I celebrate pretty much every day here because I have finally found what I want to do.

Hello again Craig!

Just wanted to say I had a look at your Website.
I really like your "About me" page. As you'll understand, I love science fiction movies about the space, et's and so on. As a child I read tons of different comics, Donald Duck and Superman for example. My father he still loves to read "The Phantom". Can you guess what he gets as a Christmas Gift or Birthday gift?!

I like your attitude: It's important as an adult to keep the child inside of you alive, that makes the world a lot brighter. Myself, I still love Mickey Mouse and wish I could fly like Superman ;-)

By the way the Picture of you and your son is aaaawsome!!
Keep on flying!

I think a commonly-desired power is flight, but I think I would be like the title character in the movie Meteor Man, who could fly, but only did so about 4 feet off the ground at the speed of a fast walk... Ha ha!

I've got some stuff out there, but I need to pick up the pace and be more consistent...

Hello Craig!
Thank your for liking my comment the other day!
I've got the same view as you: WA, this is the place to be. I've definitively caught the WA-bug myself! Just read your Blog - the title caught my eyes as I had a look at your Posts.
Wish you success in the online business - may you achieve your goals!

Hello Craig,♫Welcome! Nice to meet you ツ I wish you a lot of learning pleasure and fun on WA. Thank you for adding me to your network.

From the start, I have written training for every issue I had problems with myself. I made an addition for After The Walkthrough. Also a list of 1001 niche ideas, a checklist with 25 points to go through before you publish a post, 101 blogging ideas when you get stuck and an A-Z WA dictionary. I just love lists:) It has been very helpful to a lot of people. I have listed them in one blog you can find on my profile. It's the first website link right under “Follow me on” (click on my picture to get there). I hope to help you with those.

If you have any questions, please reply to this message or leave a comment on my profile.
Success building your business in 2017. See you around, Greetings Loes

Thank you for connecting.
This is a great place to get training and connecting with people.
Yes, I believe your life in retail was not easy and you could tell us many stories.
I did choose this over another program because I like the way that everything is laid out here and easy to navigate.
I see by your second picture that you have a partner and reason to succeed.
To your Health, Happiness and Success

Yes, I think I could probably write a book about my life in retail, but I'm not sure if it would be classified as Comedy or Horror... Ha ha

I agree, WA is a great place with a ton of information and it seems to keep getting better!
Roybretton Premium
Hello Craig, I've just been reading your profile and it is good that you are trying to better yourself! It looks like you have been busy here at Wealthy Affiliate, I hope that it is working well for you and I wish you every success in what you are doing.

All the best to you Craig, Roy.
CraigW315 Premium
Thank you very much. I'm doing what I can, but I wish I had time to do more.

Hi there, thanks for the follow, I'm now following you back.

I seen your answer below and good on you for getting back on board here at WA.

It's certainly the best platform I've found online, the training is so easy to follow and the network of people and all of their walks of life is inspiring.

Here's to a great journey with WA!


CraigW315 Premium
One of the best things about WA is definitely the community. I love the positivity and support of so many people here. It's really an amazing place.
despatis Premium
Dear Craig, thanks for sharing and for accepting my invite, much appreciated. Seems you're doing very well, so keep on track and let's stay in touch.

Hi Craig!

I was just noticing one of your comments on another blog and was going to follow you but you beat me to it, lol.

It's great to meet you and thanks for the follow.

How do you like WA since you joined? I hope you have a fantastic year. :)
CraigW315 Premium
I had a somewhat rough start. I joined back in April or so and I really liked it, but I felt a bit overwhelmed. I think I put out a post or two, but mostly just did a couple of lessons and then backed away from it.

A couple of months ago, I lost my job and decided that I would look into WA again while job hunting. I am so glad I did. I have been much more committed to it this time (although I still slack off a bit-- I need to work on that) and the positivity of the community and the sense that I am accomplishing something have been extremely helpful to my morale.

I am still in the early stages of learning, and probably quite far from making any real revenue, but I am loving it here and I feel as if I have finally found what I should be doing. I am working on the bootcamp because I want to reach out to other people like myself who just need that one great opportunity to turn their lives around.

I hope that you also have a great 2017. I think it may just be an amazing year.

Hi Craig, thank you for the follow back! It's great to be a part of your network here at WA.

I too, am here to do what I can to provide a better life for my hubby and kids...working so much at a regular job does get tiring when earning just enough to barely scrape by...I hear you on that! I'm hoping too that someday my kids will follow my footsteps in one way or another and own their own online businesses instead of working for someone else.

Looking forward to seeing you succeed in all your goals and hoping you're having a great 2017 so far!

Best wishes :) ~Sherry

Hello Craig and welcome to Wealthy Affiliate.
Since you joined way back in April you will no doubt have come to realise that internet marketing can be a steep learning curve.
If you do get stuck then can I suggest you browse some of the 270+ blogs I have published within WA.

Thank you for the follow and I will follow you as well.
Enjoy your day.

Hi! Yes, it is quite the learning curve. I am reading what I can and learning what I can, while trying not to be too overwhelmed!

There is a ton of information here and much to learn, but I am very excited by the opportunities WA represents.

I technically did start in April, but quickly became sidetracked, so I am making another, more serious attempt this time and loving it. Hopefully it will be smooth(er) sailing this time.

Thank you so much for taking a moment to reply. I appreciate it.

Craig, I see you are making some good progress through the Affiliate Bootcamp. Just wanted to pop by and see if you need a hand with anything?

I also wanted to mention the success rates of Bootcamp. Absolutely everyone that has taken action on all of the phases of Bootcamp has a business that is generating consistent income online. MANY of these folks are going to be at our super affiliate conference next year.

I want this to be you and I want you to succeed with your promotions. So, please promise me that if you ever need a hand or feel stuck as you move forward, that you will get in touch with me!

Trust me, I know things can be a little overwhelming sometimes and I don't want you feeling like that.

Anyways, just checking in. Get back at me if you need anything Craig.
CraigW315 Premium
That's a dangerous post because now I'm going to be hounding you. Ha ha.

More seriously, I posted a couple of questions earlier tonight. If I don't get a response I'll take you up on this.
Kyle Premium
Haha, well I am happy to give you a hand Craig. If you need anything at all moving forward do let me know. ;)
