WELCOME TO REPLAY FRIDAY! Where we provide you with some AMAZING extra content every Friday, by re-sharing interviews that I’ve been on that you may have missed!

Today’s episode is a Replay of The Nion Life Podcast with world renowned photographer and creative, Nick Onken. Here’s what she shared about our episode:

Something I’ve been thinking about lately is the connection between fitness and the creative lifestyle. Bringing movement and fitness into my life and taking care of my body allows me more clarity of mind, which in turn helps me continue to press forward in my creative journey.

Today I’m talking to Amanda Bucci, fitness expert and online entrepreneur and coach. Amanda started her creative journey when she fell in love with exercise. From there she started building fitness training programs and then transitioned over to entrepreneur coaching. I met Amanda through Lewis Howes and she hired me to photograph her for her brand. We quickly became friends, and I love what she’s up to. It all plays into the space of creative entrepreneurship and how we create a balanced lifestyle that integrates your relationships, business, spirituality, personal development, fitness, and creativity.


“It has been a result of my ambition, a result of my creativity, a result of putting myself in the right environment.”
