Why Ramit?

The journey from researching multimillion-dollar trades in a bankers' suit in an office cubicle in Manhattan to the rough and tumble of professional squash inside a Plexiglass box was a while in the making. Ramit knows that you have to put in the hours, be disciplined, make sacrifices. And you always have to be honest - sport has the power to make you feel like a king one day and the next day you might feel like you have forgotten how to hit the ball but the truth always lies in between!
