  1. I read your story on Bellanaija and I was once again reassured of my path. I’m presently trying to set up my own consulting firm and I would appreciate some help along the way. I have a lot of passion for people and for instilling the right values. I will appreciate any advise.

    Thanks for being true to yourself.

  2. Dear Mr Tewe,

    I learned about your blog through Bella Naija, and was truly inspired. I am currently getting a masters in management at Wake Forest University in North Carolina, U.S. My undergrad degree is in economics. I have made the decision to move back to Nigeria after I graduate in May to do my NYSC. I am also currently refining my skills in critical thinking, analysis and problem solving. I enjoy working with consumer products. And I am still in the process of defining a career path that will incorporate my skills and passion to add value to the organisation that I choose to join.

    I will like to keep you as a point of contact since I am just starting to build my professional network in Nigeria. I would appreciate it if I could get your contact information in an e-mail, so that I can keep up with you.

    Sincerely,
    Zainab Lawal

  3. I just ran through your book, free from corporate slavery and I must commend you for the straight to the point approach. I couldnt leave the book until I was through with it. I have found in one of the testimonies of ex- corporate slaves what my heart goes for and the courage to kick start it in spite of its rare nature around here.
    I will like to keep in touch with you, your book has shown that people can take charge of their destinies even in Nigeria.

  4. Weldone sir,i must confess i was really inspired by your presentation today at the RISE seminar in FUTA especially the way you speak which reminds me of my model fela durotoye.indeed you are a great man,i reckon with you.

  5. Hello Jimi,
    I listened to an interview you granted on Sharing life issues with Jazz B and I was thrilled and truly inspired. I actually responded to your request by sending ”Yes” to Jimi Tewe . I did get a call from your representative who promised that I would subsequently receive a call from you.
    I have been working with an Audit firm for over 8years and I must say I don’t enjoy my job anymore .Furthermore the job does not give me enough time to spend with my children and family .Recently my husband and i realized that my children had developmental and speech challenges and my job has made it difficult in attending to this challenges.

    I hope to become an entrepreneur in the nearest future, however I don’t want to stop work immediately but get a job that would be quite flexible so that I can have a clear head to concentrate on the children and developing my business.

    Currently I search for Jobs (accounting and audit related jobs) almost every day but I have not been so lucky. I have the requisite qualification and the years of experience. My proposed line of business is to deliver School Uniforms , School and office Stationery to schools and parents at their door steps .
    I also love to work with the less privileged and bless people’s lives as this gives me fulfillment.

    I sincerely hope you get this mail and would appreciate your advice as i look forward to your response.

    God Bless
