I’m gonna brag. Somebody has to do it, (especially since I have outgrown my mother’s proud gushing about her daughter). I have been invited – and accepted – into the Forbes Dallas Business Council. This is an invitation-only community for Greater Dallas business owners and leaders.
I’m joining other Forbes Dallas Business Council members, who are vetted and selected by a review committee based on the depth and diversity of experience. The council members become part of a curated network of successful peers with access to a variety of exclusive benefits and resources. I now have access to opportunities designed to help me reach peak professional influence. I will have the chance to connect and collaborate with other respected local leaders in a private forum and at members-only events. AND – what I’m super excited about – is as an accepted member of the Council, I will also able to work with a professional editorial team to share my expert insights in original business articles on Forbes.com. Not to mention the option to contribute to published Q&A panels alongside other experts. (Some of you may know that I have already submitted three articles to a Texas based magazine that I look forward to seeing published in the springtime.)
Whew! That is a LOT – and it’s FORBES, y’all.
But wait, there’s more:
In addition to the opportunity for exposure and positioning as an industry leader on Forbes.com, Forbes Councils combine an high-touch approach with their extensive resources and global reach of the Forbes brand. As a result, Forbes Council members get access to the people, benefits and expertise they need to grow their businesses — and a dedicated member concierge who acts as an extension of their own team, providing personalized one-on-one support. (I wonder if they will be willing to drop off my dry cleaning? haha!)
I’m so excited for this opportunity that I wanted to share it with my tribe (you) first. I have SO MANY visions for ML Interiors Group that I am certain the value of this Forbes community and my acceptance will help me further grow and impact both our direct clients and aspiring designers.
Scott Gerber, founder of Forbes Councils, says, “Our mission with Forbes Councils is to bring together proven leaders from every industry, creating a curated, social capital-driven network that helps every member grow professionally and make an even greater impact on the business world.”
I’m super stoked and very grateful to all of you who support me and my fabulous team of designers. I’m blessed to love the work I do, and look forward to continuing to grow and be able to assist more people achieve their dreams. And obviously, I’m honored to be affiliated with such a brand as Forbes.
