We had the good fortune of connecting with Ashera & Courtney Westbrook and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Ashera & Courtney, how has your background shaped the person you are today?
We were born and raised in Dallas, Texas. Our Christian and family oriented background impacted who we are today.
What should our readers know about your business?
Our WHY sets us apart from others. It drives us to the fullest. We gas up and roll with the day. That WHY is your go to when the road gets tough. You have to remember WHY you started and roll over the speed bumps. We all have them so don’t allow social media to fool you. We ride with grace and humbleness. We are grateful that our higher power directed us to the plant based lifestyle. This wasn’t our path, but it’s the journey he wanted us to take. So here we are. We are so thankful that we have a supportive family and earthlings that we’ve never met. You have to focus and apply the pressure. Those are the best results. Pay your tithes and always give back. A blessing is a blessing no matter how small or big it is. We are thankful.
Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
If, this was before the pandemic and one of our best friends came to town for a week to visit, we would definitely check the weather first. Residing in Texas the weather is very unpredictable. On a nice sunny day we would visit the Downtown area and check out the new vegan spot Belse restaurant and Klyde Warren Park. We would definitely do a PopUp so that he or she could taste the Vegan Time Machine food as well. We would probably find a nice spot to go dancing that doesn’t have a lot of traffic. We would also check out the Dallas arboretum, an art exhibit, Dallas Aquarium, or Perot museum of nature & science.
The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
We would like to dedicate our shoutout to our mother, LaSonya Westbrook. She has been our backbone through everything, she is very supportive in everything we do; especially with starting up our business. We are extremely grateful for her, she pushes us to keep going and is always there with uplifting words. Seeing her happy makes us happy. She deserves the world. Vegan Time Machine is on our own path. Where ever God wants to take us we will be completely satisfied and grateful. We won’t stop no matter the obstacles or challenges. We love it!
