Today we’d like to introduce you to Jonny Morelli.
Jonny, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
For most of my life, I suffered from severe migraines and gut issues, specifically IBS and being lactose intolerant. Between my diet, medication, and lifestyle, I never had energy and relied on caffeinated energy drinks to get through the day. After watching the documentary Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead in 2012, I began juicing and eliminated meat and dairy from his diet. I was able to lose 70 pounds now free of migraines and all of my digestive issues which hampered me all of my life. I got so inspired and passionate about how the diet and lifestyle were able to change my life, I turned to social media to provide inspiration to those starting or on similar journeys. I have since left a job of 12 years and become a social media content creator as well as a health coach where I continue to help those in search of diet and lifestyle changes. It has become a passion of mine as well as a mission to help inspire and encourage all to incorporate drinking vegetable juices daily as well as eating more raw fruits and vegetables. I also have a fur child Noah, who is also the co-star of my videos to help spread this positive message.
We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc. – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
It hasn’t been smooth, after leaving a job, I was grinding every day. Between selling juices out of the house, health coaching and creating a lot of social media content, it was very overwhelming and challenging at times. What’s helped me push through and stay in alignment has been focusing most of my energy on staying consistent and staying passionate about my mission.
We’d love to hear more about your business.
What was once just a platform in which I posted juice recipes roughly four years ago has turned into a much bigger platform in which sponsorships, affiliate deals and more have come about. All of which I always make sure is in alignment with what I live and preach daily. I also a health coach and put everything into helping each individual I work with and am focused on helping them reach their health goals. There isn’t a more grateful feeling to me seeing people thrive and reach their goals.
What were you like growing up?
Growing up, I was raised in an Italian family and was also on a mostly standard American diet. I was always creative and active as a kid and in school, but my health issues and low energy from my poor diet and partying kept me from really tapping into what I loved and what I wanted to do. I basically ate terrible food, took pills for migraines and GI issues, pounded energy drinks because my poor diet and lifestyle didn’t provide me with the energy and would go out drinking with friends all weekend to escape my unhappy reality.
