Episode #26: Nikky Goncalves from Healthnut Nutrition on The Power of Positivity

July 5, 2017

Today on the podcast I’m chatting with a familiar face! If you guys have followed THM for a while now, then you’ll definitely recognize my dear friend Nikky from HealthNut Nutrition.

On episode #26 of That's So Maven, we're chatting with Nikky Goncalves from Healthnut Nutrition all about life on YouTube, finding a better work-life balance and the power of positive thinking!

Nikky and I have collaborated many times in the past (Avocado Week anyone?!) and over the course of the last couple of years she’s become a close friend. She is truly one of the most genuine people I have ever met and I can attest to the fact that what you see on her amazing YouTube videos, blog or social media is actually what you get in person. She is a ray of positivity, but also isn’t afraid to keep it real and be honest with her struggles. If you aren’t following her already, you should do so now (YouTube | Instagram | Blog)

But despite knowing Nikky pretty well, I have a ton of questions for her, and what better platform to ask all those nosy questions than to put her on the hot seat on my podcast?

Here’s what we chatted about on today’s episode:

  • Nikky’s own health journey and why she decided to launch Healthnut Nutrition
  • Why she chose to use YouTube as her primary platform
  • How she’s navigated diet pressure through her life and on her channel
  • Her tips for staying positive and living a happy and healthy life
  • Finding a healthy medium with her boyfriend, Matt and her tips for finding a healthy balance in your relationships
  • What it’s like to share her life on YouTube and how she’s found a better work-life balance
  • The health habit she can’t live without

    Can’t wait to listen! I’m very intrigued about the relationship portion because I’m currently trying to find my balance now that I’ve moved in with my fiancee.

    I think I’m a pretty positive person. Meditation has really helped me keep my positive vibes more present and at the forefront!
