Tainted Canvas: A Black British Secret Guide to Success
Who are we? Why are we here? And now that we are here, what are we going to do about it? ‘Tainted Canvas: A Black British Secret Guide to Success’ is the first book of its kind. It is the handbook we never knew we needed, a beacon of knowledge and information, to guide the Black British into unlocking the secret to not only becoming successful, but how to STAY successful. The saying goes “you have to work TWICE as hard, to get half as much”, but why is that? What TRAPS are we born into? How were those traps made? And how do we get out of them? Stormzy, the multi-platinum selling, multi-award winning & one of the biggest Black recording artists to come out of Great Britain, when asked if ‘Britain was still racist?’ replied “Definitely, 100%” why was that? And how did that response impact the mammoth of wealth he created? Success comes with trails and tribulations, once you ‘make it’ out, can you stay out? And if you can, how does this impact you mentally? It’s called ‘Tainted Canvas’ for a reason, find out why!
Urban demographic, Male & Female, between the age of 14-60 would are interested in all things business, finance, British & Black history and human behavioural habits.
