About Craig

I love people, ideas, and business. And adventure, pranks, and learning about lots of different things.

I love helping people become their best self, and am building PEAR Factor as the tangible realization of that passion. PEAR Factor provides training, coaching, and other services designed to eliminate success blockers and help people live turned-on, tuned-in lives and perform at their best. We also will build offerings for teams and businesses as well to drive peak performance at all levels.

I do a lot of training, and have created lots of different products, training programs, and packaged services over the years.

I want a cofounder(s) who is intersted in changing the world by helping people find and live their greatness, and have a blast doing it. We need marketing/sales, and software development leaders.
