Ian Dunlap of Hyper Acceleration is a normal guy on a very interesting path in business.

He loves spending time with friends and family, working out, music, and reading.

Ian was born to be an entrepreneur. He had his dad as a role model. Throughout his childhood and teenage years, he had several small businesses.

Before starting Hyper Acceleration, he ran a marketing consultancy for nine years. He gave it all up for investing when a client owed him $80k, and he was faced with the decision of whether to take them to court or do something else to make up for that loss.

In today’s podcast episode, Ian shares the story of how he walked away from his marketing business of nine years for something entirely new for him. He shares some invaluable advice on who you should target in your business. He also has a challenge for you that could earn you some cash.
