Description

For young adults and people who want help achieving their goals, Wes's advice based on his life experiences as the "Godfather of Canadian Hip Hop" will guide them on the right path.

As someone who has experienced the highs and lows that come with being a performer, Wes "Maestro" Williams has had to overcome many challenges in his life. These are also the same challenges that we all face on the way to where we want to be, and Wes's practical and empowering strategies will help you get there. Sometimes these obstacles come from within, whether it's a fear of failure or low self-esteem. Sometimes they come from your circumstances; perhaps there are people around you who are keeping you down or "in your place," even if they don't mean to. In Stick to Your Vision, Wes shows you how to define your vision, how to achieve it, and what to do once you're there. He offers useful tips and advice, as well as inspirational stories and quotes, and exercises that will keep you moving towards your own vision.

Praise For Stick to Your Vision

"'Stick To Your Vision' and '416/905' were legendary moments in my life, not to mention this man's career. Those two songs let me know that it was possible to make a city so far removed feel like it was a part of it all. Now every song and move I make I think about my people back home and how proud I am of them and they are of me. I owe a part of my confidence as a rapper to Maestro."
- Drake

"Maestro poured the foundation that many have built their homes on. The second act in his career shows he has a lot to offer and is worth listening to."
- George Stroumboulopoulos, host of The Hour and The Strombo Show on CBC
