When writing this post it was hard for me to make the decision between writing about Craig’s awesome work and extensive experience, or about what a great person Craig is.
And I dont just mean “a nice guy” – I mean one of those great people who are great to the core.
A guy who runs a great business and still has time to do volunteer builds in the community; a guy who organizes meet ups so others have the opportunity to meet like-minded professionals; and a guy who genuinely cares.
So this is what I came up with.
I had the pleasure of meeting Craig a while back and I must say, he is a true humanitarian in all it’s meaning. A guy who always looks to help others and doesn’t expect anything in return.
I remember the first time I met craig and we gave each other our elevator speeches, the first thing he said after that was, “How can I help Bonsai?”
Really? I’m so used to the “you know why I’m great? You know why you should use me?…etc). Craig is everything opposite that and is truly focused on the relationship from a genuine stand point.
You may think to yourself, “Thats nice and fluffy, but that won’t pay the bills” – but you’d be wrong. Craig is so obsessed with providing the best possible customer service/experience, that it makes it a no-brainer to go to him for work. He is not only very fair in his pricing, but I know I never have to worry about something not being done to my satisfaction, because he always delivers. Always.
BUT… Craig is no pushover. He has a great sense of business and knows when and how to push back. He won’t allow himself to be taken advantage of, and thats where he earns his respect. Great customer experience; great work; one of the nicest guys I know; and knows when to draw the line. That’s why Craig is my #FollowFriday.
I raise my glass to you Craig – you are one of the good guys and Bonsai appreciates all you do!
