Below is from the No Halo website about page:
Dependent on OxyContin, Nico faced a critical crossroad when the availability of the drug diminished. Faced with limited options, he turned to heroin as a means of escape. By the time he reached his twenties, Nico found himself living in his truck, ensnared in a cycle of desperation. It was this distress that ultimately compelled him to break free from opioid addiction, although he did so without seeking professional help to address the underlying issues.
Reintegrating into his family’s support system, Nico sought solace in excessive alcohol consumption, which strained relationships and led to his eventual expulsion from their homes. This rejection only amplified his feelings of isolation. Rock bottom arrived when Nico found himself living in a dilapidated building, broken physically, mentally, and spiritually. Despite the challenges, he recognized a higher purpose and chose to embark on a spiritual journey of healing.
Through introspection and self-study, Nico gained valuable insights into his thoughts, emotions, and actions. This newfound awareness led to transformative changes in his life and propelled him toward serving others on their own paths of self-discovery. Fueling his purpose, Nico authored the book “Five Things to Know Before You Get Sober,” sharing his experiences and providing guidance to those seeking a similar path of personal growth.
Driven by his commitment to serve others, Nico pursued higher education with unwavering determination. He earned a bachelor’s degree with honors, solidifying his academic achievements. Today, Nico is the proud founder of No Halo, a personal and professional development services company. The name reflects his belief that nobody is born an angel, but everyone has the capacity to improve themselves each day.
Nico Morales stands as a living testament to the power of resilience, determination, and personal growth. His life experiences have shaped his mission to inspire others to discover their purpose, navigate life’s challenges, and embrace imperfections. Through his work, Nico embodies the transformative journey from adversity to empowerment, reminding us all that it is never too late to change our lives for the better.
