About the author

My training in Entrepreneurship, especially in Impact Businesses, enough to know that 90% of startup business ventures fail on or before celebrating their fifth birthday, leaving their owners devastated with unfulfilled dreams of prosperity owing to inherent dry spells of ideas and capacity; I feel more enabled to touch their needs in this therapeutic piece of work (and side support) to help them bounce back even more successfully.

In this era of social media and improved communication technologies which have ushered in dry spells in communication, where break-ups have become a norm, I am a safe pair of hands as a peer educator to victims of relationship break-ups.

Kindness: as an author-friendly press, we take the word “friendly” seriously. A good publisher shouldn’t be just a business partner, but should be full of people you’d want to invite to dinner. Whether it be making a good joke or allaying your worries about being an author, kindness is our hallmark.
