Rise and thrive!

Designed specifically for entrepreneurs and business leaders. Rise will support you build the mental stamina to cope with the everyday challenges of running a business.


I'm very happy from what I've gained from [Rise] during the COVID months. Because...I've learned to be more cautious about wellness. I didn't take wellness as a priority before and now I do. Wellness has helped me take care of myself first so that I can be able to take care of my partners and those that I work with especially during this time.

- Betty Mahugu, Founder and President, Go Tell World Exposures + Rise participant

Access On-Demand Reflection Sessions

Running a business can be challenging. As entrepreneurs, we carry so many responsibilities from managing our clients and teams, to managing our family and personal life.

A key to winning as a business owner and manager is rooting yourself in daily practices of preparation and guided reflection.

Start your day with AMI’s Jonathan Cook, focused on your business and your personal wellness. As one of Africa’s leaders in adult learning for business management, Jonathan will take you through a free 15-minute pre-recorded practice to help you start your day and thrive in your business. Listen whenever you want during the week to help you center your entrepreneurial energy.

New pre-recorded practice sessions are released every month and are available for your daily use on the AMI Learn App.

Every month, psychologist Jonathan Cook hosts interactive webinars for the Rise community. Here, participants get a deep dive into key topics around wellness and an opportunity to have questions answered live.
