Morrow has also lived with SMA his entire life, and in his blog posts he writes frequently about how he’s overcome obstacles related to his disability. His first post on Unstoppable Me, titled “7 Life Lessons from a Guy Who Can’t Move Anything but His Face,” has been shared more than 70,000 times.

Unstoppable Me is an especially great resource for people with SMA and other disabilities who want to enter the workforce, as Morrow goes into detail about the ups and downs of his career. At one point he even moved to Mexico to start his own consulting business, and did it because medical costs were significantly cheaper there than in the U.S. All of his blog posts and interviews offer concise and straightforward advice for how to face challenges that come with having a severe physical disability.
