S1, E14 A Legally Blind Author Is Distrupting the Publishing House with Nikki Nardizzi


In Nikki Nardizzi’s first release, BADASS grATTITUDE: A memoir of finding forgiveness and strength, Nikki reveals the emotional and physical toll her circumstances took on her and how she took control over their hold on her.

She has come a long way since winning “½ 1st Place” at her temple’s talent show when she was just eight years old. Which she half won for seemingly endless hula-hooping. She believes, now, that she won for finally ending the spectacle.

But then, by the time she turned 41, Nikki had been diagnosed with Juvenile Diabetes, become legally blind, contracted meningitis, lost both her parents, and had a kidney and pancreas transplant.

At 43, her husband ‘suggested’ they live separately.

He said she was miserable. He said he was miserable and that he couldn’t keep living like that. He said she should find her happiness. He was right.

So, she set out to find it, along with her self-confidence and worth that was lost so long ago.

It was time to think outside the box … the box she created for herself. She had to change her perception of her life, her abilities, and what she focused her attention on. She found gratitude for the things she had, rather than succumbing to what she didn’t. That, and other changes she incorporated into her life impacted her in every way.

BADASS grATTITUDE …, has a 5 of 5-star rating on Amazon, a 4.4 of 5 stars at Good Reads, and 3 of 4 stars at Online Book Club.org.,

Nikki currently lives in New York City with her husband and senior rescue dog, Winston, working on her next book. She stands as CEO of That’s Bananas, LLC, which oversees publishing and production companies under the same name.

She enjoys supporting charities close to her heart, shopping, and surrounding herself with loving and supportive people. Her experiences have achieved her the unofficial title of advisor to friends and family, helping them navigate their own challenges.
