Making breakthroughs in business isn’t easy. In fact, it can get quite difficult. Really personal. Ask Penny Power – she’s learned a lot of hard lessons, and is willing to share them all.
In this week’s podcast we get very personal with Penny Power. She’s started businesses and put her all into them – then saw them fail. She’s learned (and shared). In the course of her “hard knock lessons” she took notes, then compiled them into a new book.
In “Business Is Personal” Penny writes about the hard work and frustrations – and the successes – that come with business.
In the course of her ups and downs, Penny has become recognised as a mental health expert for her understanding of the struggles of small business owners. To listen to her is to hear first-had the upsets and the small victories that make business so rewarding.
In the New Year Honours 2014, Penny was awarded an OBE for ‘Services to Entrepreneurship in Social and Digital Development’ by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth. The Most Excellent Order of the British Empire is a British order of chivalry, rewarding contributions to the arts and sciences, work with charitable and welfare organisations, and public service.
And in her struggles and successes, you hear the lessons that every business owner needs to hear.
You’re not alone. Penny’s by your side.
