Deane Craig & Anna
Double Diamonds Craig and Anna Deane tell their story. They met, aged 12, at school. Craig was not a good student and left after year 11 to join the Airforce. From an early age he had developed a good work ethic and was prepared to work to achieve his goals. An example was as a teenager his friends were into racing mini bikes. Craig's parents had no money so he went out and got a job so he could get his bike and parts etc to go racing. After basic training in Adelaide he and Anna started really giong out. He was sent to Perth and Anna went with him. After he got out of the Airforce he worked in the computer industry. Anna worked for Yellow pages. They were both 27 when they saw the plan, shown to them by Craig's cousin. At first Anna was negative but Craig went ahead and built it anyway.Once Anna came on board and with some challenges issued and goals set the business took off. Basically, know what you want, devolop a plan to get it then work the plan. No excuses.
