At a crossroads in life or your career and searching for inspiration to go after a dream or the courage to stay the course in the face of so much uncertainty?
Then Risk and Return is just the book for you.
"Short, succinct, unforgettable life lessons of how to capture tomorrow today. This book comes highly recommended not just to the youth in search of meaning but also to the leader about to be displaced and the elder scared of disruption." [Konyin Ajayi (SAN), Managing Partner, Olaniwun Ajayi LP]
"As an African entrepreneur who has been through many of the trials and tribulations Yomi describes in his book, I can relate to the ups and downs, but also the immense joy and fulfillment of building businesses on the African continent.” (Frederick K. Swaniker, chairman and founder, African Leadership Group)
“This book is literally what every single person who wants to move back to Africa should read. Even people who are already back should read it just so they know there's a community of people who have been through what they are experiencing.” - (Seni Sulyman, VP, global operations, Andela)
"It is rare to get an inside scoop on the vulnerabilities of the entrepreneur who is well ahead in the 'making it' journey, especially in the African context of prayer-as-strategy which leaves room for minimal lessons to be learned. In Risk and return, Yomi has done a rich and thoughtful job of capturing that experience so others can learn." (Misan Rewane, cofounder and CEO, WAVE Academies)
Risk and Return is the story of one man’s return to Africa - 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 listeners engaged from start to finish.
In a casual conversational voice, the author, Yomi Jemibewon, 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 listeners navigate the challenging and sometimes terrifying times that a person experiences when embarking on a big life change.
For those listeners with a special passion for Africa, his story just might inspire action to join the wave of people collaborating to galvanize positive change in Africa.

Loved this book
I have read my share of business literature. This is by far my favorite. It is likely that I connect with this book for such reasons as being a Nigerian who spent a good chunk of years living in America but I would actually like to think it’s more than the distinctly and unapologetically Nigerian voice in which this was written that endeared me to this work.
I love that the author got down in the weeds when it came time to discuss the work he did in his business. I love that he didn’t paper over his privileged background as many authors tend to do. I appreciated how honest he was about the difficulties he and the team faced along the way, even when it came to matters of integrity.
Most importantly, Warren Buffet and other business titans whose books I have consumed are mere ideas to me. I have actually met a few Forbes list billionaires in my life. One actually told about how his big break was buying Chase Bank. I drew a blank because I had no idea how his insight could get me to buy a Chase Bank too. Yomi is relatable. Not a distant idea. And he is doing hard but good work in a place that matters. I am inspired.
I highly recommend the book. Nigeria, the world’s most misunderstood country is a character in the book. This book could be a useful tool to see Nigeria differently both for Nigerians and others who are just curious.
