I ignored this section for awhile, unsure of what to write and say.
As with anything the best solution is the truth.
My name is Craig Stanland, I live in Brooklyn, NY. I allowed fear, a sense of unworthiness and greed to override what I know is right and committed the biggest mistake of my life.
I used the knowledge I had gained from years of being a successful sales executive to perpetuate fraud against a major corporation. I was arrested by the FBI and sentenced to twenty four months in Federal prison, three years of supervised release and ordered to pay restitution in the amount of eight hundred and thirty-four thousand dollars.
I was lying to myself, my wife and my family. As a result I am divorced, I am financially ruined and I will forever be labeled as a criminal.
I’m forty two years old and restarting life.
This is my second chance at life. This is an opportunity to be the best version of myself I can be, this is an opportunity to do the things I love.
Adversity can either destroy you or make you stronger than ever.
This is the story of my journey back to who I was meant to be. This is the story of me trying to improve myself every day. I am not always going to be successful. There will be stumbles and falls. But I will wipe the dirt off of me and continue down the path.
Thank you for reading and feel free to contact me directly.
