This week Jason speaks to journalist and media business owner Robin, who explains how his parents' early sacrifices to fund his education enabled him to attend Oxford University, which led to him associating with the UK's new prime minister and several other members of the current cabinet.
Be sure to listen to why and how, after 20 years, Robin made the leap from a well-paid job as a television journalist, to starting and running his own media business, and how he navigated the financial highs and lows.
