She’s worked for her brother in multiple roles and earns ₦60k.

19 September

Hey, you. This song has lived in my head rent-free for the past three days. Please, what is a “munch”, and why’s she calling the guy one? Why does it have Instagram Reels in a chokehold? And, most importantly, am I losing touch with my Gen Z side?

My existential crisis aside, I really think you should read this week’s #NairaLife. I’ve plugged it in this letter. 💜

The Inside Gist: The Regretful #NairaLife of a Nine-Year Career Spent in a Family Business

[David decided to nap on company time, so I’m gisting with myself again. No one seemed to mind the last time.]

I read this lady’s story, and I was torn between blaming the brother for not being more appreciative of her efforts and wondering how much the other employees earned if the managing editor/head of operations/HR lead was paid ₦50k.

Like?! My heart went out to her. Imagine sticking around even when you’re not happy because of family, and then, the decision comes around to bite you in the ass.

What part got you the most emotional?

The part where she said she feels she would’ve had better friendships and relationships, and even gotten married, if she had switched jobs. I can’t imagine what it’s like to watch the years pass by from one spot, and feel alone professionally, financially and emotionally, as she did.
