Guess who got some exciting news from the Forbes Coaches Council? Heather Pinay!

Have you heard of Forbes?

Have you heard of

I bet you have. We have too.

More than that we have actually heard from the people at

Two weeks ago, the conglomerate found Heather online, and reached out to her. After a vetting process, application, and a vote, Heather has been invited her to be an exclusive member of their prestigious Forbes Coaches Council.

By exclusive, I’m talking less than 300 members from across North America, and only 5 in Canada exclusive. It’s kind of a big deal. The coaches council is by invitation only and will provide Heather and Authentically with unmatched opportunities.

Authentically is less than a year old - we began in February of this year and have made an impact on upwards of 35 different Saskatchewan-based businesses. We have seen some pretty amazing growth in that time - thanks to our fantastic clients, hard work, late nights, creativity and tenacity. This amazing opportunity with the Forbes Coaches Council means that we will have access to even more resources for our clients and expand our influence to an international scale. We can’t wait to share the benefits with you, in learnings, insight, and prestige.

Heather is over the moon about this. I am over the moon about this. We were talking this morning and she explained to me what it meant to her:

This is exciting because I had a dream and went for it - and through hard work and dedication, and simply saying ‘yes,’ again and again - it has grown bigger than me. I can’t even believe how rapidly we’ve grown in a turbulent economy. I have the opportunity to empower clients on a daily basis and that is a huge. I can’t wait to share the benefits of being a part of this council with our clients
— Heather Pinay, Owner, Authentically

The honour is reserved for small business owners who exemplify a model in which their clients can gain personal and professional confidence.
