Are you struggling to achieve the results and life you desire?  Are you feeling stuck? Are you looking for ways to get past your fears, limiting beliefs and doubts? Are you ready to level up your life and your outcomes?

Our special guest Akhtar Khan answers these and other questions about fear, self-sabotage and personal transformation.

Akhtar Khan (UK) is the Founder of Reaching Excellence, and is a renowned and respected high performance, property and business success coach.

As a successful business investor, property entrepreneur and authority on mindset, Akhtar’s ongoing mission and commitment are in supporting others in building wealth through property and business so that they can live life on their terms.

Having had a challenging start in life, growing up in a dysfunctional single-parent family with minimal financial resources, Akhtar discovered that a lack of resources was less important than an attitude of resourcefulness, coupled with a healthy mindset of possibility and good old hard work.

With no personal funds, no experience, and no track record from a standing start, Akhtar built a multi-million-pound portfolio that generated him a 6 figure income that allowed him to retire at the ripe age of 37.
