Fellow Fit For Service brother Eric Morris joins Lance today from Aubrey Marcus’ program. Eric talks about his experience with COVID-19 and how it has impacted his business, Local 130 Seafood, and his surrounding area. Opening about his background growing up in New York, Eric shares a poem description of his history of substance abuse, alcoholism, and heavy partying. Learning about the connection between trauma and substance abuse helped Eric pave his new life path and begin a process of healing. Join Lance and Eric as they discuss a variety of stories from Aubrey Marcus’ program and the powerful benefits of meditation.


Eric answers with, “Rise up and don’t let adversity beat you!”
