An ambitious graduate from the University of Wisconsin - Madison, Akbar has accomplished as much in his post graduate life as he was able to achieve throughout his academic career. With numerous interests and the capacity to excel across various fields, Akbar graduated with a double major in Political Science and Languages & Cultures of Asia alongside a double minor in Religious Studies and South Asian Studies. Leveraging location-independent platforms, he established a company that operates in 5 countries around the world four years after he graduated. It was at that point he decided to turn his attention to mentoring Gen X & Y clients on developing assets and creating more financial choice for themselves. Akbar lives in Chicago, IL and you can follow him on Instagram at @live_outside_the_cubicle. When Akbar isn't helping people create more choices in their life, you can find him with his family, reading, or snowboarding.
