Troy Dunn Net Worth $500,000
Dunn started his career in finding long lost relatives when he first did it for his mother; she had been adopted, and in 1990 decided that she wanted to find her birth parents. Dunn helped her do that, being able to trace them and reunite her with her biological family.
This event led him to start his own private investigation agency, The Instant People Locator. The Licensed Investigative agency aims to “reunite one half of the world with the other half.” Dunn uses the most in-depth and accurate data files available anywhere to find specific people. Slowly he was able to reunite long lost relatives with each other. The services that he offers became his sole career, and the source of his net worth.
When the internet was launched and became mainstream, Dunn transferred his services on to the new platform and became BigHugs.com. With the use of the internet he was able to provide services to more people, and was able to collate more information for his process of finding people easier.
Dunn’s website became a huge success and helped him with his wealth. With his new feats, another website that specializes in genealogical and historical record – Ancestry.com – saw the attention that he was getting, and decided to purchase the website. The huge deal tremendously increased Dunn’s net worth.
After selling the website, Dunn was able to catch the attention of people from television, and was able to land his own show, entitled “The Locator”, with concept of helping people find their long lost loved ones. The show became an international hit, increasing his fame considerably, and helping his wealth tremendously too. The program lasted for five years and was able to reunite hundreds of families over the course of the show.
After the success of his first show, the network gave Dunn another show “APB with Troy Dunn” in which he served as the host, and at the same time the executive producer. Later he transferred to another network and hosted the show “Last Hope with Troy Dunn.”
Although he has enjoyed many successes in his business and his television shows, Dunn has also had his fair share of controversy. Some people criticised him when he decided to support the adoptive parents of a child rather than the real parents; some saw it as a contradiction to his services and what he does for others.
Despite his controversies, Dunn has continued his services and added more endeavours. He has beenable to write two books, “It’s Never Too Late” and “Family: The Good ‘F’ Word”. He is also a senior partner in a leadership-training company.
In terms of his personal life, Dunn is married to Jennifer, and together they have nine children.
