Risk and Return: A Journey of Entrepreneurship and self-discovery in Africa
Risk and Return is the story of Yomi's return to Afriica - a journey that begins with a search for self-fulfillment, which then evolves into an entrepreneurial adventure filled with tribulations, triumphs and many life lessons that will keep readers engaged from start to finish.
In a casual conversational voice, Yomi gives an honest, often hilarious and sometimes sobering account of what it feels like to chase a dream under highly uncertain circumstances. His anecdotes and reflections about navigating an unfamiliar sometimes unforgiving, African business environment - as an idealistic returnee an eager entrepreneur, or a young family man - will help readers navigate the challenging and sometimes terrifying times that a person experiences when embarking on a big life change.
