Jacques Nkoa, entrepreneur, author, & consultant

"A guide to the entrepreneur, a guide to students, a guide to life.  Sensational this masterpiece.

Richard Sufo, Assistant Lecturer, Le Mans University


A story of friendship

"This is my story too. I like it because a lot of people talk about their success, but very often, we do not know the failure that preceded. As Efuet said in the book, being an entrepreneur, you have challenges such as fundraising, criticisms, pressures and so on. The story in this book is a real story, and it can't teach you success, but it can help many young entrepreneurs avoid pitfalls, speed up their project. WlH's adventure has given me the courage to face difficulties in life and in my career

"I loved how vulnerable the writer gets and how he is willing to share some untold truths with the readers; but what marks me the most is the fact that he reminds us that there is light at the end of the tunnel."

Starting from nothing and building an empire

Entrepreneurial risk-taking

"The author has a special, complex style of writing, a clever blend of romanesque and comic, so much so that one is always amazed at every sentence by the turn of events as told by the author with well-found formulas and metaphors. One discovers a man who possesses values that are rare in these times, above all someone who is determined and tenacious, yet full of compassion for others. In reading this book, one cannot help but feel that entrepreneurial risk-taking is not always a pleasure, but can also turn into a path of Golgotha. Recommended reading".

"I have listened and read many startuppers tell stories concerning their days of little beginnings. However, Atem's story stands tall and feels like an executive summary every aspiring entrepreneur, CEO, leader, manager, storyteller or those who want to keep a positive attitude must have as a guide on the table going forward."
