WHAT is FEAR Really??

2018-09-19T23:13:37-04:00Wednesday, September 19, 2018|

What is fear? Fear is the feeling you get when you are afraid or worried that something bad is going to happen. As human, you will always feel fear. But you must be very careful not to empower it so that it adversely influences your actions and decisions. It causes you to feel anxiety, insecurity, and a complete lack of positive feeling. When fear overruns you...  there is a tendency for you to become hesitant or procrastinate, not able to think sensibly or logically. Fear imposes limitations upon your potential and ability, and in the process ruins your relationships with others. When you fill your mind with only courageous thoughts, you leave no room for fears and you tend to make courageous decisions. Courage is not absence of fear but the overcoming of fear. Fear is all that lies between you and your dreams. Instead of seeing or feeling the fear, look at the further side of it towards your dreams. Move forward despite feeling the fear. Just have faith and do it. Your faith will never let you down. It will see you through. You permit your mind to habitually dwell on countless negative thoughts and the resultant fears. The [...]

My friend, Neil Simon

2018-09-04T07:43:04-04:00Tuesday, September 4, 2018|

Back in 1985, I was doing the Broadway Show, The Marriage of Figaro co-starring Christopher Reeve.  I had a chance to hang with a lot of the young stars working in New York City and among them was Matthew Broderick.  One night I was visiting the cast of Biloxi Blues and by chance the playwright Neil Simon, was walking out of the backstage door as I was walking in -- it was a true Hollywood meet cute -- we looked at each other smiled, I must have giggled and he invited me for an after show drink at Joe Allen's.  We talked for the next 6 months -- it was an amazing time - except for the 30 year age difference -- it might have turned out differently!  He was a prince, so funny and he will be missed!  Matthew Broderick played Eugene Jerome and in the cast were so many up and comers like Penelope Ann Miller, Matt Mulheron, Alan Ruck (Ferris Bueller's Day Off), Bill Sadler and Brian Tarantina    This is a clip from the LA TIMES: Neil Simon, whose comic touch in “The Odd Couple,” “Barefoot in the Park” and many other hits on stage and [...]

Forbes Riley + Home Shopping + Perfect Pitch

2018-05-21T03:28:09-04:00Monday, May 21, 2018|

My home for more than 28 years - live home shopping around the world.  One of the secets is that you MUST have the Perfect Pitch! How to Develop Your Perfect Pitch Okay - you've invented, created or licensed the perfect product - now how do you market and make money from it? First contacting me is a great idea -- hint, hint! But when the moment arises to go to the network you will only have a few minutes to win over the buyers. Don’t waste their time with details about why you came up with the product idea. Instead, focus on the selling points, the financial aspects, and keep your pitch short and sweet. Be considerate of the buyer’s limited time; don’t waste minutes with “cutesy stuff" and PLEASE don’t tell a buyer that your product is the best thing in the world and that they will make billions of dollars with it. They hear this everyday! Simply get to the point with solid benefits and features. Start with how your product will benefit their pocketbook. Retail buyers are most concerned about their bottom line – it’s how they keep their bosses happy. Just as you are hoping to make [...]
