    I Just Flipped the Switch! When The Interviewer Becomes The Interviewee || Omar Pinto, Recovery & Life Coach, Motivational Speaker & Host of The SHAIR Podcast

    Join host Lori Windfeldt as she interviews the interviewer, ladled with her usual trenchant commentary and charm.
    Omar was 10 years into his sobriety when he took a chance and launched what is today considered one of the most successful recovery podcasts on iTunes. The SHAIR Podcast has over 2 million downloads and listeners from all over the world. A while back he was introduced to Life Coaching, Recovery Coaching and Personal Development and he hasn’t looked back since! Coaching was the turning point that allowed Omar to get out of his own way, becoming the person he was always meant to be.  
    This episode includes discussion on:
    All things Omar SHAIR – The meaning behind the podcast and recovery community SHARING HELPS ADDICTS IN RECOVERY SHARING HELPS ALCOHOLICS IN RECOVERY SHARING HELPS ALL IN RECOVERY Most important word is sharing. That is what we do. Being open honest vulnerable and giving people opportunity to heal When is the right time to start a podcast? The 11th tradition of Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) Living life, recovery and sobriety OUTLOUD Helping and healing through storytelling Sobriety vs being clean and/or sober Holistic recovery was important from the beginning of SHAIR Recovery Community (SRC) group inception. Not just 12-step (NA or AA) but all recovery paths. SRC members use their moral compass & their intuition to run meetings in this private group. They know what to say…. The right thing to say. What in the freaking world is neuro linguistic programming (NLP)? Programming and brainwashing – have our brains been hacked? Have you questioned whether or not you’d like to take a leap of faith in becoming a coach…. Listen to Omar’s story of service turned career. What is your value as a coach. Not just money and time… what is your value? Well, also money and time. Omar talks ‘pricing your worth’ when it comes to charging for service. Religious childhood trauma – raised in dogmatic/religious/cult like environments Eat shit sandwiches, accept your gift as a healer, eat more shit sandwiches and all will be right in your world.

JCBIEDA ,

This isn’t just for people “recovering”

I love how these conversations flow; easy and candid. You don’t necessarily have to be in recovery from alcohol/drugs to enjoy this podcast! We can all relate to “recovery” in general because we are all recovering from something!

5 stars from a podcast connoisseur

I consider myself a podcast connoisseur. I listen to podcasts every time I go for a run, which is often. Some get me through a few miles, others maybe 5 or 6. Well, listening to Lori could get me through an entire marathon. Her questions are thoughtful and her laugh is downright infectious. Well done! You can be sure I will be a long time listener!
