Hi, we’re Penny and Thomas Power and we have a passion for business and a love for people.
For 25 years, we’ve been supporting small businesses to thrive in an ever changing world. Creating the first social network for businesses, Thomas and I were early adopters of the digital age and have since built and sold 3 other businesses, spoken on global stages and published nine books between us. During this time, we experienced many successes, including an OBE being awarded in 2014, but we have also suffered massive financial adversity and emotional hardship. Married for 30 years, we have been on a journey together through life which has been both exhilarating and terrifying, but has enabled us to build an emotional resilience to business and develop the skills and mindset required to grow both personally and professionally.
In 2018 we went through a redesign of our lives to lead the life and business we wanted and to encourage others to do the same. We took all of our knowledge and experience and created BIP Mastermind. The vast number of applicants encouraged us to build a community which supported more business owners into the future, whilst maintaining a strong culture of intimacy and honesty.
BIP100 exists to support experts and small business owners who would like to belong to a smaller community and grow their skills and confidence so they can build a stronger business, with more predictability and enjoyment. We want to provide a safe space for emotional support whilst connecting people to the right experts across all aspects of business to ensure everyone is equipped with the necessary knowledge and skills to progress their business forward. We know what it’s like to experience the extreme highs and lows of business and we understand how important it is to lead a business that makes you feel like you’re achieving your own version of success.
