Rehman Akhtar is truly a one of a kind human with the stamina to outlast any form of adversity whilst holding his morals, beliefs and values in high regard throughout. It’s a tough balance to perfect and it’s one that Rehman has mastered. As well as being my uncle, he has been a huge inspiration and influence in my life.

In this episode we discover the raw life lessons Rehman experienced being one of the few Pakistani’s in a British school in the 70’s and how those challenges built the characteristics that had him endure poverty whilst raising a family with a wife and two kids to eventually landing an executive role at one of the most successful companies in the world, Saudi Aramco.

Rehman’s story will have you laughing hysterically one second and in tears of sympathy the next. This is a special one folks, I hope you enjoy.

You ever wanted to see what it takes to run a business at a young age whilst managing a family, marriage, kids? This is my truth. My drive, motivation and passion comes from years of training in holding myself to a higher standard in everything I do. But what good is all the lessons I’ve learnt and practice daily if I can’t share them with the world?

Who is Omar Choudhry?

I was 17 when I began setting up and running my own creative media agency for 4 years – this experience taught me the foundations of business, growth and most importantly, design.

I decided to pursue design as a full-time focus at 21 and have since had the pleasure of working with some of the most inspiring people and brands that I would never have dreamt of meeting. I’ve also been nominated for 2 Entrepreneur of the Year awards and designed apps that have reached #1 on the App Store.

My laptop and one piece of software have taken me around the world, from Miami to L.A. all the way to Singapore and I’m driven by the notion of endless possibilities — I reflect this in my design work and the way I live my day to day life.

Now happily married at 26 and father to a previous little daughter, I share my passions and adventures with my family whilst still working with some of the most thrilling start-ups around the world. I also conduct workshops with young people as well as speaking for multi-national companies like BT to help inspire and motivate the next generation.

Day to day I operate a full-service media agency in London called Flavr and my latest project, Feedsauce has been in the works for over a year. Feedsauce is a bespoke photography platform providing high quality, custom Instagram photos for your product. We’ve built a super simple and smart website that allows you to get your hand-made, edited and ready to download images within 7 days. I’m currently focussed on developing our product offering and building the future of custom content.
