In the midst of a wave of Black Lives Matter protests that swept the globe in 2020, last August marked the second annual Black Pound Day; its aim being to encourage support from people to buy from Black-owned companies (both local to them and online).The power of black and other ethnic consumers represents a significant proportion of the marketplace with an estimated spending power of £300 billion per year in the UK.

While black people are avid consumers, we generate and hold very little wealth comparatively speaking. A recent report by the Runnymede Trust titled, The Colour of Money: How racial inequalities obstruct a fair and resilient economy, highlighted this fact.

Kenroy Malcolm is an aspiring property investor and runs a YouTube channel where he provides tips and tricks to help his viewers save money as well as charting his own wealth-building journey. He is part of a small minority of black content creators in the personal finance space online who are keen to inspire and encourage others

On this episode, Kenroy and I talk about why wealth-building is not just important, but an essential part of creating economic freedom. We also talk about his own personal finance journey and his inspiration for YouTube.

We live in an age where there is certainly a recognition that men and women are entitled to equal opportunities, and rightfully so. But despite the shift towards more women becoming leaders in the workplace and other areas of life, men still feel under a lot of pressure to be financially successful. How do we resolve the internal conflict between the intrinsic need to be capable providers and the reality that our value as men doesn’t need to be centred on our ability to accumulate resources?

How transparent should we be with our partners about money, and how do we share the responsibilities for managing finances within our relationships?

This episode features a new addition to the Man Ting podcast, Chukwudi Ugbomah.

Chukwudi is a teacher in a secondary school, a musician and he’s currently engaged to be married. In this episode, we talk about the complex minefield that is dating for marriage, knowing when you’ve found ‘the one’, and resolving conflicts within our relationships when they arise.

Both myself and Chukwudi are massive sports fans, and in the week where Kobe Bryant was killed in a helicopter crash along with his 13 year old daughter and 7 other victims, it was impossible not to talk about his legacy as a supreme athlete on the court, and a doting dad off it. We explore what the concept of legacy means for us, and how we as men create something of value for those who come after to emulate and surpass.

Rest in Peace:
