Risk and Glory

Cooking had become a death trap!

I have always had a passion for solving problems. It is safe to say that entrepreneurship found me because of my drive to solve problems. My journey changed, my passion didn’t.

Straight out of university, in 2012, I set out to solve a common problem in northern Nigeria, a worrisome rate of children not going to school.

I convinced other young people to join me to bridge this education gap. We set up the Ambition Nigeria Network, connecting teenagers with mentors. These mentors were determined to spur interest in education and learning.

"RISK AND GLORY!  (What’s your story?)"

Billionaire Tomorrow launches a new section capturing the sacrifice, spirit and splendour of the African entrepreneur.

This is a section written by entrepreneurs for entrepreneurs. Each piece is a snapshot in the struggles and triumphs of those who swim against the tide to risk their own money for uncertain reward. The thoughts of an entrepreneur who fights his, or her, way past the naysayers, sceptics and reluctant lenders to stake their claim.

The way to reward and glory? All too often, this is a rocky road, fringed with thorns, with slithering snakes in the shady undergrowth.

You can earn from telling these stories too. If you write for Risk and Glory you get a chance to earn our new token – The Bil. The more people who read your story, the more tokens you earn. Send me 800 words of your story to me at Chris@billionairetomorrow.com.

Check it out.
