The first time I ever met Forbes Riley was while I was working in New Business Development department with HSN (the Home Shopping Network) here in St. Petersburg, FL. My first impression of Forbes was one of electricity and excitement. She has such an aura and energy that emits from her and when you speak with her, well, what can I say “you’re hooked”. I often felt if you shook her hand you might just get a bolt of an electric shock run through your veins. I immediately knew she was someone I wanted to learn more about. I also felt like we were somehow connected and had something in common (little did I know how right I was, we were both born and raised in New York-- (I knew I liked her for some reason :)).
I hadn’t seen Forbes for a while. I stopped working with HSN and worked on other ventures and one night when I attended a cruise meeting with the AMA, Forbes was the keynote speaker. It was such a pleasure to see her again and get yet another dose of high energy.
I asked her if she would be a guest on the show and she graciously accepted.
Tonight in this episode, Forbes will cover some tips on how to pitch your business or idea, teach you about some great healthy options on food and exercise and overall give you a boost of confidence that I feel we all need from time-to-time.
