 MPF discussion with Frank 'Ed Accura' featuring Matt AndreeBlacks Can’t Swim: Is it a Cultural or a Physical ThingEd Accura is a British songwriter, producer, rapper and host of In The Deep Side podcast, songwriter, screenwriter and producer of the new documentary feature film "A Film Called Blacks Can't Swim," directed by award-winning filmmaker Mysterex (MO-AM). This film is about a black British who after watching an upsetting news report on bad weather and flooding, develops an acute phobia with water. His anxiety with not being able to swim and irrational fears of drowning pushes him into buying a life jacket which he wears everywhere he goes. He is torn between his friends who try and encourage him to learn how to swim and society who dramatically dampens his confidence with stereotypes on black people and their inability to swim. The film combines acting with real interview footage of various members of the community voicing their thoughts on the subject.  Ed is a co-founder of the BLACK SWIMMING ASSOCIATION, a charity set up to encourage black and minority ethnic (BAME) people to go swimming after figures showed they were half as likely than white people to do so.  The Black Swimming Association (BSA), the first of its kind in the UK, aims to highlight the importance of swimming as an essential life skill after research from the World Health Organisation found the risk of drowning is higher among BAME communities.On this episode of My Perfect Failure (Blacks Can’t Swim: Is it a Cultural or a Physical Thing) Frank describes how a holiday to Barbados led him on a journey to confront his fear of swimming.   This journey has now become a crusade not only for Frank who is now learning to swim himself, but Frank is also bringing needed focus to a real issue within the BAME community.  Recent statistics show 95% of black adults in England  are not able to swim and 80 percent of children in England are also able to swim.

She is an inspiring speaker and author of five books including finalist in the Business Book Awards in March 2020. A regular on podcasts across Europe, America, and Canada as well as the UK, Vicki will surprise you with her take on property, finance and the next decade. Since first recognising property as the best strategy to create her financial security, Vicki has shied away from the “get rich” gurus and their flash cars and shiny shoes. Many of her talks have been said to be straight talking and brutally honest. Vicki would tell you that being successful in property takes commitment and hard work. It takes a good understanding of the market and an even better understanding of the maths involved. Vicki runs both a property training and a property sourcing business. In recent years she has helped clients invest over £5 million pounds and bought over 70 properties. Her investors typically earn 15-20% interest over three years and deals have included traditional buy-to-lets, HMO’s, semi-commercial units, developments, barn conversions and good deal of sourcing. Not bad for a “made-redundant” “single-parent”!When not on holiday scuba diving as her alter-ego The Property Mermaid, she loves having time with her growing family; now with two grandchildren, and recently discovered a love for gardening – COVID induced of course.  On this episode of My Perfect Failure (From Redundancy to Reinvention) with COVID 19 having a devastating impact on the Job Market resulting in many of us either being made redundant or facing redundancy.

  MPF discussion with Ashanti JohnsonThe Power of visualisation with Ashanti Johnson About AshantiMental Fitness Expert and founder of 360.Mind.Body.Soul, Ashanti Johnson, created 360MBS in 2010 for those ready for a mental and physical change. This group fitness gym offers 4 fitness floors including a barre, cycle and functional training studio with over 50 classes taught per week by 15 certified fitness Instructors. Ashanti herself battled weight gain throughout her teens and 20s and noticed a key pattern that her weight gain was a side effect of her stress level & emotionality. Once she began to acknowledge her inner turmoil, connecting her mind to her body and building her spiritual connection, the weight fell off with little effort. She got certified in 2005 in Group Fitness and Personal Training through the Aerobics and Fitness Association of America (AFAA) as well as Senior Fitness, Pound and over the years began to teach everything from kickboxing to meditation. She realized through her own story getting fit has as much to do with diet and exercise as self-love and "mental fitness." She began 360 doing mental fitness workshops in addition to fitness classes and meal plans and the results lead to over 25,000 pounds lost in the past 8 years. Ashanti did a Tedx Talk about the Power of Visualization and how we can manifest our visions through mental fitness. She continues to speak and teach about the mind, body, soul connection online and in person monthly. On this episode of My Perfect Failure (The Power of Visualisation) Ashanti explains the power of visualisation, how she has used visulisation to transform her life and also the lives of her clients.  On this episode Ashanti explains how we to can use visulisation to transform our lives.
