Background

About Craig

My education and experience is in the realm of management, operations, and human resources. I previously attained success in all endeavors and hope to transfer my previous successes into a future growing, sustainable business. My complete background is as follows for you to make the most well-informed decision:

Diagnoses and Comorbidities:
Asperger's (on the higher end of functioning - entrepreneurialism is one opportunity where divergent thinking is celebrated, not held in disdain), ADHD, Epilepsy, 2 concussions, 1 Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) that nearly ended in death (1 millimeter from hitting my brain stem). Cognitive function has remained intact following concussions and TBI.
Successes:
Record high score for the Naval Nuclear Engineering entrance exam (NYC). Capsim business simulation (CEO that controlled all facets and achieved a 99.99% score excelling beyond international schools and the vaunted Harvard students on both the undergraduate/graduate level). Attained professional status as a runner (excellent skill transfer of envisioning a goal and the steps/determination/drive to ensure the goal is met).

The business's purpose would be to serve the underserved populations unable or incapable of receiving products and services from major 1st party cell phone retailer with major e-commerce competition from Walmart, Target, Best Buy, and Amazon. I hope to use my capabilities to serve a wide swath of the population while sharing earnings with both friends and family = strong anticipated growth over 5-10 years.

I have attached the business plan, which doesn't fully cover the exit strategy of either licensing internal, documented trade secrets for operations (Lean Six Sigma approach to operations to reduce error and ensure consistency/efficiency), or an e-commerce branch with a capital intensive distributorship build-out. In the near-term, marketing, online presence, and the introduction of Point-of-Sale (POS) systems with membership in the STAR Network to accept credit/debit cards as a form of payment, are areas that are largely untapped.

I am mainly seeking someone that can complement my abilities in conceptualizing and implementing strategies.
