In an age where women are truly rising to power and choosing not to play small; TV Celebrity, Motivational Speaker and Best Selling Author, Forbes Riley, truly shines as a role model and a powerhouse to watch. Tonight in St Petersburg, Florida at the acclaimed Estate located downtown, Forbes along with 7 other outstanding women will be honored as Tampa Bay's Most Powerful Women 2018.
The coordinator behind this "Celebration of Women", Andreas Malissovas, is an Entrepreneur and Owner of Events & Adventures Inc. He stated, "When we announced that we were looking for Tampa Bay's Most Powerful Women, Forbes Riley's name was nominated by several different people. It's exciting to see the impact she has had on so many in our area and a joy to celebrate not only her achievements in the media, on tv and in print, but also in the community. Tonight we honor and glorify women who make a difference AND even more important, we shine the spotlight to help raise funds and awareness for tremendous contribution the St. Petersburg Free Clinic brings to so many in need."
Before Forbes Riley became a media sensation for empowering people and sharing "Forbes Factor Live" across the globe, she had her share of obstacles to overcome. From being overweight with frizzy hair, buck teeth and a misshapen nose, which led to feeling alone and bullied in school, to having her dad spend 3 years in the hospital to overcome a horrific accident in the workplace, to losing a young boy she helped raise for 12 years, to a tragic gang murder. Her story is truly one of overcoming obstacles and discovering "life happens for you, not to you." Fast forward a few years and she is raising boy/girl teenage twins who attend St. Petersburg High School, is a best selling author, the Creator and CEO of the global fitness phenomenon, SpinGym and via home shopping and tv infomercials, has grossed more than $2.5 Billion in product sales.
Her mission of inclusion and promoting greatness in others has led her to build Forbes Riley Studios flagship, state of the art, tv production studio, in St Petersburg; a hub for seminars, trainings as well as major feature films, commercial shoots and even national tv talk show, Forbes Living seen on Oxygen.
TV Fitness Star, Debbie Seibers says, "I can’t say enough of the passionate powerhouse, Forbes Riley!! I first met her on the set of an Infomercial she was hosting. I was the fitness talent working with her and she inspired me to be a host, a fitness expert and has been inspiring me ever since. She is definitely one of the best motivational speakers you will ever witness:) So proud of her!!!
Tonight's award and "The Celebration of Women" is a glorious gala with an eye towards fundraising and charity while contributing back to the community. Truly showing that when you "Give more than you GET, you get more than you could ever imagine!
