"When your "WHY" is greater than your '"HOW", nothing can stand in your way"

Westley Arden Morris is a true

SURVIVOR

Growing up around an immense amount of violence, crime, prostitution, drug use, divorce. Westley developed a very low self-esteem, anger & resentment towards himself and others as a result of watching his mother being arrested for running a prostitution enterprise out of her massage business at the age of 12. Westley turned to drugs and alcohol to cope with his emotions at the age of 13. The unfavorable results of his drug use showed up in his life rather quickly. By the time he was 19 years old he had already spent time in juvenile detention centers, alternative behavioral schools, and lost his  drivers license for 22 years as a result of three DUIs and numerous underage drinking charges. At the age of 15, Westley walked in to a room to find his older sister blue in the face and unresponsive due to a heroin overdose. He was forced to learn that life can be a cruel and unfair place at a very young age.
 

After failing out of school and trying to run from his issues, Westley moved to Philadelphia Pennsylvania at the age of 25. Not long after, he became a homeless, hopeless, heroin addict and was reduced to an animalistic level, panhandling and defecating in the Kennsington section of North Philadelphia. Through the process of change and development he began to change his habits, circle of influence, and mindset.  In 2015, Westley heard the calling from a divine voice that said “Go help your Mother”. With no formal education Westley grew that same massage business 1017% in 5 years during a global pandemic. All while riding a bicycle 8 miles to get to work. Westley has now grown 3 successful businesses and has helped thousands of people to believe that what once seemed impossible is now possible. He is a Business owner, Father, Husband, Leader, Motivator, Consultant, and most of all your friend.
