Would You Wait to Build Your Career Before Starting a Family?

Truth be told, one of life's biggest goals for almost every human is the complete life.

By that, I mean a good job, luxury home, fancy cars, and a six-figure dollar bank account balance that can easily afford a quarterly vacation in Hawaii or the Maldives.

That though is not all I reckon. A wonderful husband or wife and beautiful kids completes the package, doesn't it?

However, before getting that plaque of honour for achieving it all, which should come first when you set off? Career and financial growth or building a family? 

This was the central conversation on this edition of Whaats Up Lagos. 

Show host Wemimo Adewuni has got the right "philosophy" for this. For her, you can "hustle" both only if you are a "serious-minded" person. 

A caller, however, explains how his perception changed in the face of reality. 

He said, "I used to tell myself that if I don't have at least fifty million, I am not ready, until reality came around and kicked me in the face.

"I decided to switch that plan because I was 30 and I had not gotten my masters yet. So I got married before that."

For another caller though, it is simple; "na anywhere belle face." This simply means making the plans as you go along.

Not the best strategy to have you think?

Watch the video for her explanation, as well as that of a caller who warns about "letting Nigeria happen to you."
