Forbes NEW Movie – Paying Mr. McGetty

2017-08-12T15:49:04-04:00Saturday, September 10, 2016|Tags: , , , |

    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.

Launching Forbes Factor

2017-08-12T15:49:05-04:00Sunday, September 4, 2016|Tags: , , , |

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.   My husband and I had longed talked 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 we also had 2 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 [...]

So WHO is Forbes Riley?

2017-08-12T15:49:05-04:00Friday, September 2, 2016|Tags: , , , |

If you look up in the dictionary the words “perseverance and determination”, there is a picture of Forbes Riley.  As a little girl she overcame a disfiguring accident, having her mother being held hostage by gunpoint in her home, and a tragic accident that landed her father in the hospital for over 3 years while she was a teenager.  While most young girls in her position might have thrown in the towel, Forbes learned early on the power of forging ahead, even when there is no end in sight and everyone tells you it’s not possible.  Another major obstacle Forbes fought was her weight – now to most people that’s a typical struggle, but when you have dreams of being a Broadway dancer and actress it became monumental.  She worked in spite of hurtful comments and rejection and acted in TV (24, The Practice), movies, hosted TV shows (ESPN’s X-Games, her own talk show on TLC, and a series for ABC Family.  Finally, after two decades of humiliation she managed to turn her weight and eating around when at age 42 she gave birth to 7-pound twins and co-hosted the Jack Lalanne Juicer infomercial, which aired worldwide for 8 [...]

It is amazing to me how time flies -- the summer vacation flew by, I'll sneeze and it will be Christmas.  I am just taking a quiet reflect on the choices I've made - some good, some not so.  This summer I took the twins out west to a Dude Ranch in southern Colorado.  I'm grateful I remember to make the time, create the memories and take the photos!  thanks for letting me share --

  I've hosted a lot of infomercials in my time, but this was by far one of my ALL time favorites - Why? I got to include my whole family for the very first time.  The product was a frozen food home delivery company (they shall remain nameless as the show tested well and they decided NOT to roll it out because (as I was told) they did n't want to grow the business that fast -- go figure! The pictures say it all and I'm sorry the world didn't get to enjoy this show - it was a true sit-com!

Be Fearless

2017-08-12T15:49:09-04:00Tuesday, July 5, 2016|

We all have fear – but its important to REDEFINE - False Evidence Appearing Real! Overcoming fear requires a growth mindset; an attitude that we can grow and change if we choose. Nothing is “locked in” forever; we can change.  It takes time and practice.  Hopefully these tips will help you begin your journey to ditch fear. Here’s how you can start overcoming fear: 1. Look within. What is the root of your fear? Meditate on it. Look inside and ask yourself when the fear started: How far back does your fear go? Did you have an early failure that has stuck with you?  Explore it. 2. Be aware of fear in your life. Before you can begin overcoming fear, you have to admit that you have it. Perhaps fear is your “normal” state of being, and that is quite a bit to overcome all at once.  Write down some aspects of your life where have fear;  getting them down on paper is important, because trying to simply think them through never works. 3. Adopt a mindset of gratitude. Whenever you feel fear, try to feel grateful instead. I have been performing a lot of solos recently, and it is scary!  Instead of freaking [...]
