Forbes Business Council Invite!

Throughout my life, I heard the name Forbes and associated it with the absolute definition of success.

Travie McCoy and Bruno Mars’ song “Billionaire” always comes into my head:

“I wanna be on the cover of Forbes magazine, smiling next to Oprah and the Queen”

I never ever thought my name would become associated with one with such gravitas.

What is the Forbes Business Council?

The Forbes Business Council is an invitation-only organisation consisting of a group of successful business owners of small and mid-sized businesses.

This is straight off the Forbes website:

“Members are respected leaders who are selected for the council based on the depth and diversity of experience in leadership, management, customer engagement, technology & growth.”

So, to receive an invitation was a complete shock and honour. I am proud to say that I accepted their invite and I am now officially a member of the Forbes Business Council.

What do I do as a Forbes Business Council Member

Being an official member of the Forbes Business Council doesn’t come with lots of responsibilities, but it does mean that they call on me from time to time for my “expert opinion” on certain matters and I get to write on topics I am experienced in, to be published on their website.

This is a magnificent opportunity for me to give back to budding entrepreneurs out there as I’ve now been given a platform to voice my experience and opinions on.

Please do keep a look out for my content on the Forbes website as I’m sure there will be new pieces up soon!

I will be sure to share these across my social platforms, so do ensure you’re following me on LinkedIn, Instagram and Twitter for more information.

In the meantime, I can keep dreaming about being on the cover of Forbes magazine, smiling next to Oprah and the Queen.
