Happy new year!
If you’re resuming work this week, I’m sending hugs. Why can’t our capitalist bosses leave us for the first week of the year?

For this year’s first Naira Life, we spoke with a university-trained architectural engineer who decided to chase tech after his parents had spent over $100k on his education. He was even meant to take over his dad’s architecture company. Last year, he had where he made $14k as a software dev working from home.
Did he make the right decision?

The #NairaLife of the Software Dev That Only Thinks in Dollars
After five years in university and over $100k in fees, today’s subject on #NairaLife decided in his final year that he didn’t want to work in architecture again. Clearly, his parents weren’t happy. But maybe their minds are changed now that he’s making tech money.
An excerpt: “I didn’t want to look back at 30 and regret not going into tech. In my head, it was: worst case scenario, I end up with a really high-paying job; best case, I create a product that makes me a billionaire. Win-win”Read His Story Here
