I’m getting married.
What? Now don’t look at me like that. Okay, let’s get right into it!
December 2022, I was done working as a Content Writer x Social Media Manager x Executive Assistant.
You’d think I was earning half a million. Over what, biko?
So I looked my boss in the eye and told her I wasn’t coming back the next year.
She didn’t take it well but smart woman found a way to keep me around albeit remotely, and with a pay cut.
2023 started with me being all about Product Management.
I met very amazing people steadily grinding and not minding the sleepless nights tech rewarded them with.
It’s been a ride, really. Nights where you’d cry yourself to bed and on some mornings, I had no will whatsoever to get off the bed. I’d blame myself for wanting to do ‘too much’, I could have just stayed with my full-time job until one Alhaji’s son finds me and seek my hand in marriage.
May, my boss came with an offer. I didn’t take it.
You’d think I was making millions lol. I was a very broke girl but Olamide once recounted this old adage in one of his songs: whatever you wouldn’t accept as a rich man, the best time to reject such is while you’re poor.
Trust me, it sounds better in Yoruba language.
September again, she comes along with a different offer, and to be honest, it’s way better than the previous deals we’ve had and I just might be taking it…
I’ve boldly been calling myself the Product Girl for months now, guess I’m about to be a Product X Operations Girl.
My girl saw this bio description and said; this might be you soon and oh well…
I’m quite excited for the adventure ahead; pursuing Product Management and being in Operations.
I’ve begged my guys ahead; I don’t have the slightest idea what lies ahead but one thing I’m certain of; I’m not dropping one for one.
Now you may wonder why I took on the role eventhough it’s hardly an hybrid one. Money is my No. 1 motivation.
I’m tired of sending epistles on my guys’ birthdays, I want to gift them too!
Also, I have a feeling, scratch that, I know it’ll come in handy when I’m met with the opportunity to pursue PM full-time.
Writing this felt personal and that’s why I chose a channel where just a few people can put a face to my name.
Plus, why did I open a Medium account? It’s a digital safe space where I document as I journey through life.
