From homeless drug addict to successful business owner

His first memory wasn’t a fond one. It wasn’t one that any child should ever have to endure.

The police were pounding at his front door, in pursuit of his parents who would be arrested for running a cocaine business out of their home.

Drug dealing wasn’t the only crime he witnessed.

At 12 years old, scared and confused, he would watch something unfold that he wished he’d never have to see…

…His mother in handcuffs, being escorted by police from his front door – arrested for operating a prostitution ring.

Life as he knew it was hard. And it didn’t get much easier after that.

His childhood programming progressed and manifested into some unhealthy beliefs and habits that would spiral his life out of control.

But the transformation he experienced years later is nothing short of something you’d see in a movie.

This is just a piece of the story of my friend, Westley Morris.

Not only is Westley one of Empowered Living’s 6-Figure Speaker Training Mentors, he is so much more than that.

Westley is one of the strongest people I know. He has overcome so much. Whether it be childhood trauma or adulthood adversity, he’s been through it all.

And I’m not just talking about what I mentioned above.

I’m talking about hitting rock bottom as a homeless drug dealer, panhandling the streets of Philadelphia.

How did he get there? And what has happened since?

Ten years later, he’s living the life of his dreams with his wife Daria, running a family Massage Therapy business while building his speaker training business at the same time, and inspiring others to break through their limiting beliefs.

So, what’s the secret ingredient? How did he make it happen?

How did he go from years of childhood trauma and negative programming to turning his life around and living each day with purpose and passion?
