Showing Up With Asher Gottesman

By Asher Gottesman
Everyone has challenges in life. There’s no one that knows this better than entrepreneur and spiritual mentor Asher Gottesman, who overcame lifelong addiction issues only to self-destruct.

Now more than a decade sober and in recovery, Gottesman has devoted his life to teaching others how to show up.

In this podcast, Gottesman asks fellow entrepreneurs, athletes, celebrities, influencers and other public figures about what “showing up” means to them. These real, raw and sometimes humorous conversations about personal development will inspire listeners to show up in their own lives.

Chris Medina Shows Up To Be A Psychic Medium
A rabbi and a psychic walk into a podcast, but this isn’t a bad joke! Chris Medina is a psychic medium with an incredibly interesting story. If you aren’t into psychics or don’t believe in them, know that Chris thinks most are frauds as well. But we all experience intuition, whether its psychic intuition or feeling like something is or isn’t trustworthy. Chris had a challenging childhood, where he felt guided by spirits instead of his parents. He also talks about struggling in an unhappy life, addiction issues, finally becoming comfortable with his own psychic abilities and how we all have gifts. But most importantly, he isn’t afraid to keep it real.

Andrea Arlington Shows Up For Reality
Showing up for friends and family with addiction is tough. No one knows this better than former reality star and founder of Families United For Recovery, Andrea Arlington. You might remember her from Pretty Wild on E! (Leslie Mann played her in the movie The Bling Ring) or her daughters Alexis Neiers Haines and Tess Taylor. Today, Andrea is a completely different person than you probably remember her to be. With two daughters in long term recovery from heroin addiction, Andrea shares her own story of leaving home as a teenager to become a model, having a brother who was an addict, and feeling like she didn’t belong. She opens up to Asher about guilt, shame, how Brene Brown changed her life, the dangers of being a people pleaser, numbing out, healthy boundaries, feeling like a bad mom and how her son-in-law’s brutal honesty was exactly what she needed to change. Today, Andrea is a Daring Way Facilitator, ICF, PCC Life Coach, a better mother, grandmother and inspiration to others. Asher talks about how he had some of the same maladaptive behaviors and what lead him to change, as well as why drugs and alcohol are a short-term solution to a longer-term problem.

Emily Lynn Paulson Shows Up To Be A Sober Mom
Emily Lynn Paulson was just like Asher—a parent to five kids who had a seemingly perfect life on the outside. She had a thriving business and an Instagram feed anyone would be jealous of. But everything was edited, filtered and Photoshopped (at least in the spiritual sense). In real life, Emily was an alcoholic who was hiding deep secrets. In this episode, she gets deep about making mistakes and learning to forgive herself, the importance of self-care, sleep, meditation, Catholicism, exercise, making certain things in her life non-negotiable and how she finally got sober. But perhaps the best lesson here is that she finally learned to stop caring what other people think, which is something most of us struggle with. Emily also talks about writing her book Highlight Real. Emily’s sobriety date is January 2nd, 2017! If you’re struggling this time of year, Emily’s story will prove that you don’t need a glass of champagne to celebrate a new beginning. This episode is a must-listen listen for everyone. Even if you don’t struggle with addiction, alcoholism or being a parent, it’s very easy to relate to Emily’s story.
