40,000 Steps is an advocacy business addressing recovery from addiction and mental illness through podcasting, blogging, public speaking, and live event production.
As a recovering alcoholic and lifelong sparring partner of depression and anxiety, advocacy is a vital part of my recovery program.
By sharing my story and amplifying others' voices on the podcast, I'm making good on my second chance by chipping away at the stigma surrounding addiction and mental illness.
40,000 Steps Radio is available on all podcasting platforms. Visit https://anchor.fm/christopher-heimerman to find the link to your favorite, from Apple Music to Google Podcasts.
Guests on the podcast run the gamut, from recovery/running legend Charlie Engle to musicians and physicians.
I also a public speaker who relishes the opportunity to speak at events, from mental health conferences to private business retreats. I've also had the pleasure of speaking at treatment centers.
Speaking of events, I'm producing This Is My Brave on Oct. 13 at The Egyptian Theatre. It stars local residents who take the stage and share their stories of triumph over mental illness.
