What are you willing to do to achieve your goals?
Most people will say anything, yet many of them will give up the minute it gets hard.
If you truly want to achieve your goals, you won’t let anything get in your way – just like Forbes Riley.
Forbes has overcome circumstances that would force most people to walk away and quit (more on this in the episode). Nevertheless, she has gone on to mesmerize audiences with her authentic, inspirational style as a motivational keynote speaker and entrepreneur.
Forbes is one of the pioneers behind the As Seen on TV infomercial phenomenon, having hosted over 180+ infomercials, and generating over $2.5 billion in global sales.
Today, Forbes is an entrepreneur, the CEO of SpinGym having sold more than 2 million units, the host of the Forbes Factor, a motivational speaker, and a loving mother.
In this episode of the Rock Your Money, Rock Your Life, Forbes and I discuss why she chooses to live a bold and outrageous life, how she became MORE successful when the pandemic took over the world, and how the queen of the pitch Engages, Excites, & Enrolls.
