I Need Serious Advice On The Path To Tow

I am currently confused right now on what to do. I need advice.

I got this job that pays 200k+ a month plus a decent accommodation. Iam very good at my job and I have been planning on opening my own. As a matter of fact I have planned to start buying the equipments needed for the company by October. Although if everything goes as planned the company would begin operation by middle of next year. I also have the intention of combining my job and running the company(it's no big deal). However I ran into this sure link of getting a very high paid job abroad. The link is legit and very sure, all I have to do is accept and I will leave ASAP but my problem here is that my parents wokldolet me step out of the country cause I'm their only son. I needed the abroad job as it would boost my income and enable me achieve what I had planned. If I should follow my initial plan the company would run on a small scale. However, with the fund from the away job I could get enough money to go into full business.

Iam thinking of defying them and go ahead with the abroad plan. But one mind is telling me to hold onto my initial plan.

Please what do I do?

Ps I have already been offered the job abroad all I have to do is to accept it. And I don't have much time left.

I need sincere inputs
Negative comments are welcomed too


No sure links any where in the world. Look before you leap.

Have you gotten an employment letter?

Have you spoken to the HR personnel of that company with the email or phone number provided on the website?

Have you confirmed that the job link is not a scam?

Have you confirmed if that company and link actually exist?


It is suicidal to leave your family and a well paying job only to be stranded or trafficked.

Their fears are real. You won’t marry a white woman, but you WON’T RETURN.
Money is not everything. More importantly you are comfortable in Nigeria and you seem to have a bright future. I see no reason why you should be desperate. If you work deligently in Nigeria you are likely to build a great business. Many have done it.
Family is important.

Yes ..... US, Canada, France and Australia.

Pls don’t go any Asian or Arabic countries or any country that doesn’t speak English. shocked

U can’t be in US for 6 months without using car. Either u are on visiting or student visa not to talk of PR or LR.

That shows how good their economy is.

Guy how much is the company abroad going to pay you as salary? Subtract house rent, light, water, gas, heater bills.... Also find out what other bills you will have to face, monthly insurance is also there waiting for you... If the remaining money is worth it, say close to 800k or 1M then you can go, if not think hard before you do anything. But let us in on your abroad salary, you will get better advice from then on

Re: Should I Leave My N200k Job For Abroad Job? by dnapstar(m): 10:17am On Sep 22
My advice to you is to remain here and work with what you have, provided you have a contract with your current company.
Build your own company little by little.
"A bird at hand is better than a thousand in the bush"
"The devil you know is Better than the angel you don't know"
Don't allow the greed of being paid more or travelling abroad push you.
200k is not bad and most importantly you claim to like your Job.
That is a perfect combo.
You are a king at home and would always be a stranger in another man's home.

NB provided you have a contract with your current company and your happy there, please stay.

I am speaking from first hand experience.

if I was the one I would have just gone and begin sending mad cash to my parents when I settle down. however that's me cause I have an independent mind I don't know about how strict or uncompromising your folks are

make sure you dig dee into to reason your aren't allowed to travel out

being an only child it could be more than the fact that they love you so much , THERE COULD BE A SPIRITUAL REASON
you might think that only happens in nollywood but we can't rule out the possibility


how long did they wait before conceiving and what measures was taking for you to be conceived.



it could also be that they are scared that when you go you will marry onyeocha (white person) and refuse to come back . nothing scares African parents especially IBO's like that for their first sons.

me I don't really know how to convince people in this situation that its so juicy for my future and I might strongly regret dropping it I no go even tell anybody I will just waka.

You better go abroad if you've got someone over there who's gonna give you a headstart , and your passport is genuine so you wouldn't be living a fugitive life.


Over there is a thousand times better than over here.

200K and a decent Accommodation is great wonder why u still want to travel outside.. Family First

just 200k is great wonder? I know folks who were earning 2 million naira after tax and still left. grin What you should say is 200k is great compared to going to a country illegally or staying where you haven't got the legal rights to be employed in a decent job. If he can go through permanent resident visa, then 200k is a joke to hold him back.

Sir I understand your grief

Some decisions are very hard to make as you consider both the nagative and positive side of the decision

Well let's look into what you just said
You have a very good job and you are doing well in it, a very good apartment which is perfect
Everyone would like to have the same too

But going outside the country would be a very good action and an advice able one because everyone would tell you to they want to leave this country (Nigeria)...well I laugh at they sometimes and always say this to my self "shey na when you taste two soup you go know the one way sweet pass" if they leave this country without adequate planning of thier staying in thier new country like considering the following
1:what will I be doing there?
2:who do I know there
3:Is the county safe for migrants??
4:what If I go there and things didn't work out as planed what would be my next plan
5:what are the unusual happenings In the country( of cause every country have strange happenings)
6: isn't my country better than that country and if the country is better than my on what stand is that

All these are what I advice the people to consider before leaving the country

Well if you are sure of your wellbeing in the country and all those mentioned considerings are good to you, you can move on

And for your parents they are just scared with time they will get used to it


Am a student who just finished my secondary school this year (2018) and am the only child of my parents and am planning on setting my self up with something before entering into the university

And one quote that keeps me going is something I lernt from Jenifer dairy which is "the law of attraction" if you think positivity you will have positive things coming your way"


Wish you good luck sir
