A love Affair with Failure

By Dr. Akintoye Akindele & Olakunle Soriyan

In A Love Affair with Failure, the authors aim to help emerging entrepreneurs be prepared for the inevitable challenges ahead and urge them to be resilient in pursuing their dreams, embracing the idea of failing not only as a prerequisite for achieving success, but also a victory in itself because it signifies having had the courage to take action.
