Hi, I’m Craig!
A real-life person with the same hopes and dreams you probably have. Looking for ways to be more creative from an entrepreneurial standpoint in other areas of interest in my life (my true passions) while striving for the greatest freedom and flexibility in generating wealth and maintaining a balanced life. To build wealth and a lasting legacy by living a long, happy, healthy, and peaceful yet fun life with freedom and financial security for me and my family. How about that? Doesn’t that sound like a fantastic plan?
Today, I am enjoying the fruits of my labor from the last 20+ years working many jobs …and still working. With that, plus over 40 years on this planet, I’ve been to many places, met a lot of people, and worked for 8 different companies in numerous positions and hundreds of “bosses”. I understand how hard it is to survive in the business world.
Even with all of my corporate experience (and MBA), I never could get my head wrapped around working for other people while they seem to get all the benefits and rewards. Everything I could possibly do, I did. Trying to climb that ladder and make it to the next rung. Well, maybe not everything… I am an honest, hardworking, and ethical person with moral values. In today’s business world, that doesn’t always cut the mustard. People step all over you to get to the top. Competition is expected and even promoted. And some people will sacrifice anything – including ethics and values – to reach that top rung. After all, “It’s just business”, right? Assuming they get that corporate job in the first place because, today, the competition is fierce for almost ANY job.
Currently, I am an invested partner and sales manager in a biotech distribution company selling scientific instruments for a larger conglomerate. It’s a small business with around 20 great people and fairly stable. I make a comfortable living and have no trouble supporting my family, have no “real” debt, and we pay our bills on time. But I don’t want to EVER worry about these things – debt, putting my two girls through college, dependency on social security or medicare, affording nice vacations, being able to donate money and give back to society in any way possible. Job security is better for me now, but I haven’t always been this fortunate and I took great risks to get here. I’ve been through those mass layoffs and I know how quickly the tide turns in the business world. There are no guarantees in life! I realized I needed to take control and design my own future… my own “guarantee”. Something that can weather just about any storm.
So, I decided to take the plunge and start working on something I’ve been scared to do for nearly two decades – start an online business that can earn income while I’m living the life I want.
I mean, come on… is that really possible? Earn enough to never worry about finances again! Maybe even quit the day job and have unlimited freedom in my life! For me and my family, that actually isn’t asking a lot. We are not the materialistic type. We live very modestly. Most of our furniture and things are hand-me-downs, we drive modest cars, live in a small house… But like most people, we just want to live a happy life without the stresses of “no money” or “not enough”. Wouldn’t it be nice to not have to worry about money anymore?
My wife and I have a 2026 master plan (once the girls go off to college) to buy a house with more land and have a retirement home for rescued senior dogs. We want to be able to pay for any medical treatment, surgeries, etc. in order for these dogs to live out their natural life in a comfortable place. We have already been very active doing this for the last 20+ years… and 13 dogs! Currently, we have 4 senior dogs.
So, I’m halfway to the freedom and financial security I’m expecting in order to build wealth and a lasting legacy. Creating an online business was my next step to creating the life I want. I joined Wealthy Affiliate and, so far, it is everything I had hoped for!!!
