One on One Coaching with Omar
WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING
I first reached out to Omar in January of 2108. I had hit a wall. I was 18 months sober. I was struggling with how to move forward in sobriety now that my life is put back together. I mostly was struggling with “my purpose” in life. A good friend of mine put me in touch with Omar, so I reached out. At first, I struggled with the idea of a “coach”, I mean I consider myself a successful guy. Why do I need a coach?
Then I put my ego aside. Then I struggled with the idea of how much each session costs. It didn’t take me long before I added up how much I was spending on Starbucks and lunches with clients to debunk that excuse. Once I got myself mentally past all the roadblocks we were able to get down to work. Omar has opened my eyes to a world I had been closing myself off to. He has helped me with my limiting beliefs about myself and my business. He has helped clear away some anger and resentment I had been holding on to with my wife for over 5 years. That was a game changer.
My marriage is now flourishing because of ridding myself of that burden. There have been many unintended surprises along the way with Omar. I can honestly say that it has been an amazing 6 months with “O”. There is still more work to be done so I will continue to see “O” for as long as it takes. Omar has made it possible for me to flourish spiritually, emotionally and financially! I have made a life long friend and mentor. My wife and I are eternally grateful! I highly recommend you stop kicking the tires and put your ass in the seat next to Omar. You won’t regret it!!
I have been listening to the SHAIR podcast for the past two years. I love the podcast and listen to it often, the podcast has allowed me to build up the courage and confidence to start addressing my addictive behaviors and to actually make it out to meetings. The meetings alone weren’t cutting it, I wasn’t able to talk openly about me, to get inside of the reasons why I would feel so compelled to continuously jump back into the same old routine bad habits.
I needed something more, something new, I needed to talk to someone, I needed help. I recall hearing O mention some one-on-one coaching services as well as an online community for extra support in the SHAIR podcast intro. I finally remembered to check out this website and came across the coaching page. I read through the options and at this point I decided, I need to make an investment in myself, I had nothing else to lose and everything to gain, and besides you get to connect with the man, Omar himself!
This has been the best investment I have ever made. My anxiety, fear of failure, negative self-image, and stress levels were through the roof when we started. Now I can’t even imagine that old life I was stuck in. Today I feel clean, clear, motivated, relaxed, happy, and able to breathe fresh air on the other side. Not only do I feel better, I have some tools to rely on that weren’t there before.
If you’re reading this and want to make some immediate and high impact changes, this is it, make the leap and never look back.
I have known Omar Pinto for many years from various activities we share while I was living in Costa Rica. A few months ago it became clear to me and to my wife, that I needed some personal coaching in various areas of my life. I live a very busy life that includes a lot of hours at work and multiple long business hours. It was time to prioritize the core values of my life in order to get back to the successful road I have had and that I wanted for the rest of my professional years.
I contacted Omar and he answered back immediately; this was the kind of reply I was looking for and needed. We scheduled various Skype meetings and spent various sessions exploring areas of my life that eventually were the genesis of some of my uncomfortable feelings. Omar helped me to detect unresolved issues that I did not know existed and furthermore, guide me to resolve unsettled emotional states that needed to be reconciled. It was an amazing and gratifying journey that resulted in a better me with myself, a better me with my wife and sons and a better me at work.
At the end, it was clear to me that I needed this type of coaching if I wanted to continue my journey in a more satisfying mode. I needed advice from someone I was able to trust and had lived similar experiences in the past, that fully understood the meaning and antidote for fear, shame and guilt; in summary someone that understood and was able to share with me the fact that all of this was not unique, that I was not unique, that we are many and that there is a solution.
Omar has helped transform my life in aspects I didn’t even recognize I needed. I’m a high achieving professional with a skeptic tone toward the life coaching industry, but I’m also intuitive and saw something in Omar that I wanted in my life, so I gave him a try.
4 months later, we are still at it, and I wouldn’t give up my weekly sessions with O for anything. They’ve proven to be priceless, and I can say with certainty that my life is thriving in a way I never knew was possible.
I first reached out to Omar for Life Coaching and for help to stop and/or slow down drinking. At first it was very uncomfortable to open up about past issues that were buried deeper than I could have even imagined. His demeanor and style makes it very easy to feel comfortable and to let down your guard no matter how strong.
The biggest part about coaching in my opinion besides growth and improvement is trust. I can say without a shadow of a doubt that I trust that he is going to help steer me in the right direction. He has an incredible soul and an incredible way of approaching life. He has helped me tremendously and has even helped to accelerate my Real Estate business and career.
If you are on the fence regarding “if you need help” overcoming whatever issues you are battling, get off the fence! I have found his help, support, and guidance to be truly invaluable. After just 5 months of working with him on a weekly or bi-weekly basis I not only consider him a coach, but a friend and mentor. He is doing incredible things for the recovery community!
Three months after putting down the bottle, I had no desire to drink. Yet something didn’t feel right: the tremendous stress — from problems at work, members of my family, and my inability to resolve problems — was still there, smothering me. I was drowning in indecision. I was lost and stressed to the max.
So, I took a leap of faith and began one-on-one life coaching with Omar Pinto (“O”) of SHAIR.
After an amazingly short amount of time, I was able to see life so differently and clearly: I knew who I was and what was important to me, so I was able to make good decisions. My brain was functioning better. I discovered new life strategies to help me achieve my goals. Sure, there are bumps in the road – but now, they don’t confuse, threaten, or derail me. I manage my life.
I’m not sure where I’d be if I hadn’t found SHAIR and coaching with O; I shudder to think about it, really. I’m 100% sure I would have relapsed. Coaching with O saved my life, and I will be forever grateful!!
“I consider Omar to be a vital member of my “Mastermind” group, a diverse group of individuals that I rely on for guidance. I can always rely on Omar to be brutally honest and to have excellent suggestions for how to proceed.
I emphasize ”suggestions” rather than advice since Omar allows me to come to my own conclusions. He just helps me see all of my options and helps to point out the pros and cons of each. Omar is also an inspiration when it comes to entrepreneurship.
Omar has taken giant leaps of faith with no safety net in his professional life and has come out a winner. You simply cannot go wrong working with Omar, or as his colleagues call him by his nom de guerre, “O”!
