Willie Crawford was raised on a tobacco farm in
North Carolina, living off welfare most of his youth. His family
was so poor that he once wore his grandmother’s shoe to school
while working to earn money to replace his only dilapidated
pair. This built a burning desire in Willie to break away from
the poverty and build his own business.
Willie worked his way through college, then joined
the Air Force where he traveled to 47 different countries while
serving as a navigator on C-130 transport aircraft. During that
time, Willie also learned “a little” of five different languages.
In 1996, while still serving in the Air Force in
Hawaii, Willie decided to start his own internet-based business. By
the time he retired in 2003, Willie had built that into a 6-figure

Willie leverages his knowledge of online marketing,

When Willie is not busy teaching ecommerce online

through their doors, he enjoys deep sea fishing in The Gulf of
Mexico… not too far from his Florida home.
