John is a man with a burning desire to change lives. Raised the son of a founding coder for AMAZON, John experienced a better childhood than most. He was lucky enough to travel the
US at a young age and was afforded many opportunities in life to be successful. As a true go- getter, John has built a name for himself as a contractor. He has also been responsible for founding companies Xpert Auto Detailers, Scoops Italian Ice, Amity Autos, Top Knotch, Perspective Recovery, Tampa Bay Business Network, Networking4ACause, and a Bed and Breakfast located in South Carolina.
John grew up with his two brothers and as most brothers often do, they became best friends and spent years of their lives together experiencing all that life has to offer. As they reached their late teen years, experiencing with drugs and alcohol became the norm and although John never became “addicted” to any one substance, he did socially use drugs and alcohol from time to time. While attending a concert, John and his brother, Sam, were offered LSD and chose to accept. That decision would change John’s family’s life forever… John and Sam both enjoyed their evening at the concert and the next day when they awoke, John noticed something “off” about Sam. He was not the same person. He never, “snapped out of it”.
Doctors eventually diagnosed Sam with drug induced psychosis which developed into
paranoid schizophrenia. John at that time put his life on hold to help his brother face this battle with mental illness. This type of psychosis lasted for years and eventually lead to Sam’s suicide in 2012. Upon the news of Sam’s death, John was devastated. His family was devastated. He had lost his best friend. To this day the pain is still real and still hurts.
John currently resides in Lakeland, FL and has recently pursued modeling as a tool to build his social media influence while he is finishing a real estate development in Central Florida. John has also been working on several philanthropy missions during this time period and creating relationships with those groups on the ground in Nicaragua. He is making arrangements and has purchased a cargo shipping container for his soon coming move to Nicaragua. John will be vital in overseeing the build out and startup processes of Perspective Recovery. You may see more about John through his website www.TheJohnRiggins.com or his
