[P.O.W.E.R. Plug Podcast] How the P.O.W.E.R. Program Has Become a Movement

When you started your business, did you pick a bank based on convenience because a bank is a bank is a bank, just a place to store money and pay bills?

What if there was a bank leading a movement for women entrepreneurs and all women in business with an entrepreneurial spirit? Would that make a difference?

According to a 2017 study published by American Express, women are opening 1.5 times the number of businesses than men. Over the past 20 years, the number of women-owned businesses has grown 114% and there are an estimated 11.6 million women-owned businesses in the U.S.  SonaBank noticed this powerful trend and decided these women deserved more from a bank.

In this episode, I speak with Joe Shearin, CEO of SonaBank, about how the idea for the P.O.W.E.R program came about, why it's become a movement of entrepreneurial-minded women, and the impact of the most powerful woman in his life.
