Peter Thorpe started his career in sales at the age of eighteen. By the time he was thirty, he had become the General Manager of Sharp Corporation of Australia. He left Sharp to start his own business and since then, he has been a retailer, an importer and has operated his own advertising business.
In 1988, with no previous experience in publishing, he decided to start his own magazine. Called "Australian Small Business Review" it was based on his personal experience gained while starting and running various businesses himself. It was an outstanding success and he was eventually bought out by a large publishing house.

His book Small Business Street Smarts, has now sold over 18,000 copies and his latest work, Search Engine Secrets is destined to also join the best seller list.

In 1997, he started his own Internet Development company where he helps businesses both large and small with their online marketing.
