Freddy Negrete - Guns, Gangs, Tattoos & Recovery... 

Freddy Negrete is a legendary tattoo artist based in Hollywood, CA. He’s been profiled on numerous media and has tattooed numerous celebrities, musicians and sport personalities.

Freddy was orphaned at the age of two when his mother and father, both Pachuco gangsters, went to jail. After a youth of foster care and boys’ homes, Freddy went down the same path as his parents and lived a cycle of gangs, drugs, and incarceration.

Freddy honed his skills as a tattooist in prison and is now a world-renowned pioneer of black and grey realism. Freddy endured countless ups and downs with addiction and suffered deadly health issues, but he asked for healing and, after a pivotal moment, he received it.

He is now clean and sober and helping others in the community get out of the dangerous life he once lived.

Sue Curr is a motivational speaker, life coach, and author. She helps people achieve their full potential and instill in them the confidence to live life the way they want.

It’s hard to believe that 5 years ago, Sue was at death’s door. Her organs were failing from a 5-bottle-of-Chardonnay-a-day drinking habit. By shear strength and resolve, she made it out alive. Now Sue doesn’t waste a minute of her life.

Fear less live more is her motto. At the age of 57, Sue eliminated her remaining fear of heights by skydiving. She now knows there is no limit to what she can do.

Sue's story is dark and laced with humor as she tells us how she went from lying in a hospital bed to flying high on life!

CLEAN DATE: September 26th, 2012

Sean Croxton joins us today on The SHAIR Podcast.

How can you identify and remove self-limiting beliefs?

How are your feelings of unworthiness affecting your ability to achieve your dreams?

How can you move on from the past to become your greatest self?

Many of us were raised to have negative thoughts about wealth or that we are not deserving prosperity. Addicts and alcoholics especially suffer at the hands of self-limiting beliefs and feelings of unworthiness.

Today we have Sean Croxton on the show. Sean is the creator of one of the first health-based video channels on the internet. His first podcast, Underground Wellness Radio, ran for seven years and got millions of downloads.

Now Sean hosts the Quote of the Day podcast, a short show that features quotes from motivational talks, and he is getting ready to launch the Money Mind Academy to help people break free from old thought patterns to achieve financial success.

Sean is not a recovering addict or alcoholic, but because of his troubled childhood, he experienced the same feelings self-doubt and guilt that kept him from accomplishing his goals. He shares how he identified and overcame his self-limiting beliefs to achieve things he never thought possible.

This episode will revolutionize the way you see your health, wealth, and future. Don't miss it!

Andy Ramage is the cofounder of the One Year No Beer alcohol-free lifestyle revolution. He is a master practitioner of NLP (neuro-linguistic programming), a mindful-based awareness coach, and is currently studying masters in positive psychology and coaching psychology.

How can you quit alcohol in today’s drinking culture?

Andy used to be a heavy drinker. As a broker, it was part of his job to entertain clients. But after years of drinking he noticed he was gaining weight, performing poorly, and was too tired to enjoy his family. He decided to take a break from alcohol, and to his surprise, discovered that it was the most incredible thing he had ever done in his life.

Now Andy wants to counteract our alcohol-drenched culture by promoting an alcohol-free lifestyle and giving people the tools they need to combat the enormous social pressure to drink. 

Listen to his story about the superpowers that come with an alcohol-free lifestyle!

Sasha Tozzi is a recovery lifestyle coach, a Y12SR (Yoga for 12 Step Recovery) instructor, a Reiki practitioner, and a writer. She helps individuals with physical and emotional sobriety, self-sabotage, and codependent relationships.

As a teenager, Sasha suffered from clinical depression and social anxiety. When she found alcohol, she thought it was the answer to all her problems. Later, she coupled her binge drinking with an addiction to cocaine, which led her to nights of blacking out, reckless behavior, and a shame cycle she could not escape.

Sasha eventually accepted the fact that she had a problem, and got help, but that wasn’t the end of her journey. After she got sober, she discovered she had deeper problems with food and codependency underneath it all. 

Listen to Sasha’s empowering story of how she took ownership of her recovery and how she now helps other people to do the same.

Kyczy Hawk dove head-first into the counter-culture, drug-filled world of 1960s San Fransisco. She became an alcoholic and an IV heroin user, and let herself be abused by men to the point where she had but one thread of dignity left.

Fourteen years later, Kyczy was overworked, overwhelmed and in danger of a relapse. By a divine sign, she discovers yoga, taking her recovery to new heights of healing, self-discovery, and self-love. She has written the book Yoga and the Twelve-Step Path where she weaves to two philosophies of yoga and twelve steps together.

Can yoga help maintain long-term sobriety?

Listen to her transformational journey from substance abuse and self-loathing to yoga and self-love in recovery!

Rebecca Spuller joins us today on The SHAIR Podcast.

Today Rebecca walks us through her horrific battle with alcoholism, depression, suicide and death in the family.  It’s an incredible journey from recovery and how she transformed her life.

In the past 11 months, she’s gotten sober, left a 6-figure job to start my own consulting company and basically, just reinvented her life.  She created a blog called My 2.0 Project where Rebecca has chronicled everything she’s been doing since shortly after she got sober.

When she first started this blog, it was under the cover of anonymity due, in part, to her profession as a corporate HR manager, but also, because she was still harboring a lot of shame and embarrassment about her alcoholism. Well… fuck that.  She works for herself, no longer embarrassed, and is not inclined to hide anymore.

Join us now as Rebecca shares her amazing journey with us.
