Rehman Akhtar (@hellorehman) has an incredibly inspiring story and shares it with us today. Despite being my mums older brother he started his career driving a cab, stacking shelves and looking for penny’s behind the sofa with his wife to pay for food. Cut forward 20 years and he works a senior role in the worlds largest oil company in Saudi Arabia. Listen as he gives tips, tricks and advice on money management and more.

Sadly, his wife (my aunt) passed away suddenly, around this time last year. To hear that story and to catch up with his personal life, be sure to checkout the two episodes he shot on Omar’s podcast ‘The O Zone’ where he discusses all that and more.
