Ian Redpath worked as a financial planner but when someone offered to buy his business, it gave him the chance to think about what his real love and passion was. After a discussion with his daughter, he decided to sell his financial planning business and start a new one - "Detour Adventures" so he could spend every day doing what he loves most - 4 wheel driving, in luxury. Ian has now had his business for just over a year and with 12 months experience in a new business there are some wonderful learnings for us in regards to setting up a business, creating a new category, setting standadrds for ourselves and our brand, and chasing dreams.

At 1300m above sea level in Ian's new office, this is what we chat to about in today's show:-

  •  The background to Detour Adventures and how to create a new category in off-road driving
