Craig P. Stone    

C-level Executive, Entrepreneur & Experimenter

Craig lives by the philosophy since we are on borrowed time gifted to us so in order to make this world a better place the greatest use of life is to spend it on something that will outlast you, and each day we are writing a new chapter. His goal has been and continues to be changing people’s lives by showing them what Craig calls, “Stone’s Steps to Success” which is a formula that works to overcome any challenge and achieve one’s goals to give you “peace of mind” in any platform.

He is a well-known Entrepreneur, Executive and Innovator who has created, spearheaded and sold six (6) companies knowing "to do the so-called impossible you must see the invisible" -Vinod Khosla. For each and every platform Craig started in his career, he looked for what he thought others thought was the "invisible" or “impossible” and knew he could make it "visible" and “possible.”

As Craig says, since we just use 10% of our brain if we push ourselves we are easily able to run more than one company at the same time by delegating tasks and having great people working for him and by doing so; had an opportunity to expand his horizons.

He graduated in three years and ended up became a Managing Director of an Investment Banking firm, then ventured abroad becoming the Founder & Senior Managing Partner for a Global Opportunistic firm based offices overseas with 25 employees. Craig took over a failing business becoming CEO with 122 employees and turned it around and later sold the entire firm at a substantial profit. He then Co-Founded an Internet Finance Company and worked as COO responsible for day-to-day operations & strategy. He then ventured into the Real Estate Development business & assembled and was the Co-Developer of a 22 Story 97 unit residential building and a 33 Story mixed-use hotel with 203 units both in New York City which was flipped for a profit. He next became a Co-Founder of an Opportunistic Investment Company and handled its expansion with over 50 employees.

Presently, he is the Founder & CEO of an International Real Estate firm, Stanton Wells & Stone LLC where he is considered an expert in real estate (among other platforms in New York City with services such as Investment Banking, Private Equity, Residential & Commercial Brokerage, Investments, Development and Consulting.

On the side he sold/brokered private jets and managed the top 100 poker players in the world always pursing his passions embracing a “job” not “work.”

While continuing working in the real world, Craig is exceptionally proud of being a Performance Coach; empowering clients for the past two (2) decades (while doing other business transactions) from both well-known and not so well known and young and not so young to make informed decisions about their trajectory, a solutions based approach to career, mental health and life decisions.

He believes, “Ordinary people can do extraordinary things." There are no perfect people in the world, only obstacles which ordinary people rise to meet - if given the right tools.

He has a separate entertainment platform (Stone Entertainment Corp.) where Craig worked, oversaw and continues spearheading media projects; first at NBC as the youngest Writer-Producer at that time for the Network in New York City. During that time he started an Off-Broadway Company called "The Ubiquitous Players" writing and co-producing drama, comedy and musical productions in Manhattan. Away from the office, he leveraged his marketing and deal making skills to become the Co-Producer of the award-winning documentary, "At the Edge of the World" receiving 12 international awards and traveling to 14 cities around the world to speak. The documentary led into the television show "Whale Wars" on Animal Planet. He subsequently was a consultant to ESPNs "Knight School" with Coach Bob Knight for ESPN. He did an additional documentary becoming the Executive Producer and Co-Producer of the award winning - The World Away - The extraordinary Apollo 11 Mission set against the tragic back story of the original rocket program in World War II which won 2 international awards. Craig had the opportunity to partner with Brillstein-Grey Entertainment, Sony Television and the William Morris Agency on projects.

As Les Brown said, “You must be willing to do the things today others don't do in order to have the things tomorrow others won't have.”

Craig has an “emotional investment” in people’s success showing them how to run the day not have the day run them and make them better than they ever thought possible.
