The corporate world is one heck of a tough ride especially for women in Nigeria. There is a lot to navigate from meeting deadlines, keeping up with the difficulties that come with the corporate world, managing the traffic in major parts of the country, picking up the kids (for those with children), managing the home; the list is endless.
