Craig Kruckeberg was born to two serial entrepreneurs, Dick and Lorraine Kruckeberg. He grew up in a town of two thousand people and after High School went off and got his then-girlfriend pregnant and did a stint of nine months at a cooking school.

Five years later, he came back and went to work for his parents at a company they had started while he was off living his life (story in his book) and after a few years, bought it from his parents and grew it into a thirty-five million dollar a year company. Twelve years later, he sold it to a private equity for twenty-five times what he paid his parents for it.

“Craig, I just finished reading your book and I just wanted to let you know how much I LOVED it. I learned so much and I loved how you got right to the point. It was amazing to hear your story. I am truly inspired by how you kept pushing to go the extra mile to make a product that was actually good and not just what made the most money. Your life is a never-ending story of opportunities turned successes (and a few not so successful outcomes which turned to lessons) because of your passion and perseverance. It is inspiring. Thank you so much for letting me read a copy before it was published! it was AMAZING!”
