Nigerians react to Jason Njoku's thread about never staying more than 10 days away from his family
"I leave my kid for 2 days and my heart starts doing gbim gbim. Indeed, having a family is like deciding to have your heart live outside your body. Balance is key."
"Thanks for this Jason! Thought i was alone on this!"
"Fantastic rule Jason and u agree. Spend as much time with family as possible."
"I totally love this! Some people will say you can do this because you've made money."
"Great point on the retirement target. Although I feel like $2m is what I subscribe to. Good health + family time is a goal!"
"I’m Curious Jason, you really think a family of say 4-5 could retire off $1m comfortably.. don’t mean recurring yearly income but $1m combined net worth."
"Sweet goals ."
Mary Njoku slams those who say a woman’s place is in the kitchen
Mary said in the post that almost 78% of chefs and head cooks in the world are men, yet some "idiots" still say a woman's place is in the kitchen.
She further noted that men too are quite familiar with kitchens, but only the "paid kitchens" and unfairly leave the unpaid ones for women to run.
