Joseph Ritchwood- 29, I was born and raised in New Jersey until I was about 17 years old. From there, I moved to Florida and then eventually, North Carolina. At the age of 19 I enlisted in the United States Marine Corps, where I served for 3 years and 10 months. After being injured in Afghanistan in 2011 due to an I.E.D blast, I was medically discharged. I struggled to get my life back on track but soon decided to go to college to pursue Psychology. Through trial and error, I soon came to realization that I lost all passion to study psychology and I wanted to help people in other ways. I chose to go the fitness route. After spending a lot of time learning the craft, I decided to open up my own personal training business where I would go to clients' houses and train them. I chose this form of personal training because some people felt inferior in the gym setting, so coming to their house and bringing equipment was sort of my niche. Soon after, I decided to join a humanitarian program where I went to Brazil to help people living in poverty. That went well, however, something was missing. I ventured off for a little, and finally! I found how I wanted to help people. You see, I loved to educate people, and I also loved to help people become successful. So, my mother gave me an opportunity of a lifetime. I am now a Vice President of Operations for an online school, and soon to be CEO. We have a holistic approach to learning, and our classes help with self growth and awareness. Furthermore, I am the CEO of World Digital Marketing, and I absolutely love helping small businesses grow and become successful. We all have a desire to do--or be--something in life, and I want to help others get to their desired destination .
