#110 - Change a Child's Life - Jordan Shweitzer, Professional Footballer and Philanthropreneur
bootbags™ is a 2-part project originated as an idea to further connect sports to fashion and a charity that is dedicated to giving cleats to kids in under developed communities. Founded by pro soccer players, Shane Malcolm and Jordan Schweitzer in 2019, the company is dedicated to providing quality products for traveling athletes, professionals and sports enthusiasts.
For every 5 bootbags we sell, it gives us an opportunity to give a pair of new or lightly used boots to a child in need.
Jordan is a great guy and I had a real connection whilst talking to him. A professional footballer who plays for the Phoenix Rising and has a real love for the game. His work outside his footballing career is astonishing and shows the kind of guy he is. Link for Bootbags is below... follow their journey. I love businesses like this!
#109 - Your Search for Clarity - Alex Manzi, Inner Peace Coach, Author and Founder of 'In the Moment'
I first met Alex when we did a dual podcast together, #53 - Depression and Anxiety in your early 20's, over 18 months ago. This man has the unique skill of making you feel completely calm whilst speaking with him. The perspective on life that you have off the back of your conversations with him is quite incredible. Alex has written, AND PUBLISHED, his book - 'Search for Clarity' - during the COVID19 lockdown.
This guy is epic and it was a real pleasure to get him on the show once more!!
#108 - The Male Mental Health Fallout - An Internal Pandemic - Arby Keheli, Strength and Conditioning Coach and Close Friend
I have known Arby for a long time now. He was one of the founding team members at F45 Oxford Circus when we opened back in July 2018. I have watched him grow year on year into one of the most impressive blokes I know. He is kind, extremely intelligent and a freak of nature in a training sense.
When he reached out to me about an incident that occurred to one of his friends I was humbled. He wanted to use The Inspiration Space to talk about how he was feeling and how he wanted to talk about an issue that would help others.
'Mental Health' or 'Psychological Wellbeing', as I like to refer to it, is at the core of what this platform is all about. enjoy. This one is touching.
Big love to this guy as he moves on from working at F45 Oxford Circus and onto his next step at Loughborough University.
