Overcome to $uccess By Forbes Riley You are the sum of the obstacles you overcome: If you are lucky to live long enough, you're likely to go through some pretty bad stuff, whether it's the death of loved ones, losing all of your money or possessions, sickness and injuries, and other traumatic events. At best, you find that you come out of it—you've lived through some horrible circumstances or even seemingly improbable near-death experiences, and you discover yourself on the other side of it. You also realize that some people don't make it through similar circumstances, literally, by not escaping death or succumbing to suicide, but here you are, you made it through. The powerful thing about living through the horrible times isn't just in the survival. I have learned that when you come through a personal tragedy, you come through different. Life is never about what happens to you; instead it is about how you choose to handle the hand you've been dealt. Under the same circumstances handed to two different people, one shuts down, wallows in self-pity, succumbs to fear, and uses their hardships as an excuse, while the other takes the challenge head-on, gets up, pushes back, [...]

When we first purchased the building that was to become the Forbes Riley production studios it was a bit of a gamble and leap of faith into the unknown. I had longed dreamed about creating a space where I could perform, or film, or hold classes but with the launch of our fitness company SpinGym my focus was split and then I was crazy raising twin toddlers. We purchased the building and began the buildout with the back half being the "studio" and the front half being office and the coolest conference room I could imagine - its round, white, with a wall painted as a white board. It turned out better than I could imagined. Then what to do with it -- luckily I had some amazing girlfriends who came to my rescue - in particular were Daphne Street and Leslie Belcher. Over lunch I outlined this dream I had to teach and coach and transform the lives of people (okay, specifically women) but I was open. Within months of talking about this vision we created to completely unique and amazing programs. The first was Forbes Factor - an interactive one day, life changing experience. We had [...]

Yes, you read that correctly. Today’s guest, Forbes Riley is an amazing woman and one of the most successful infomercial and product saleswomen on the planet.

Forbes Riley, Former Actress Finds A New Role And Spins It Into Millions May 30, 2015 FORBES RILEY One of the reasons I started my website is that I wanted a place for women to come together and dream. We women need to know that we don’t have to hang on to an old dream that has stopped nurturing us — that there is always time to start a new dream. This week’s story is about a woman who hoped to become a famous actress — and sold health and fitness products for others as a side job. But when her acting career wasn’t getting her the gigs she wanted, she knew it was time to embrace the job she’d been doing all along. Now, the infomercial maven has launched her own product line, and she’s become the star of her fitness empire. -– MarloThomas.com By Lori Weiss Forbes Riley is the billion-dollar woman. Actually, she’s brought in $2.5 billion, if you add up all the products she’s sold on TV.

Last year's momentous run of director Michael Baumgarten's anti-bullying drama, The Martial Arts Kid, is now paving the way for Traditionz Films's newest contribution to the film front with the new action comedy, Paying Mr. McGetty. Don "The Dragon" Wilson will be returning to the fray along with actor and stuntman R. Marcos Taylor now debuting in a lead role after briefly going toe-to-toe in Baumgarten's previous film. Those of you none too familiar with Taylor can currently spot him in F. Gary Gray's Straight Outta Compton in a winning performance as Suge Knight. Here, from a script by Baumgarten and co-scribe Adam Marsh, Taylor stars as Tyrell, a floundering music producer who wakes up one morning next to a mysterious woman and no recollection of the evening prior, along with a phone call from his girlfriend over an eviction notice, and mobsters looking for him at the behest of a local top crime boss.
