Hi to all my Women out there! I am Erica Diamond. I am 38. I am a Wife. I am a Mother of 2 young boys. I am a Certified Women’s Life, Business & Success Coach. I am an Editor-In-Chief and Blogger for all Women and Moms. I am an Award-Winning Entrepreneur and Businesswoman. I am an Author. I am a Speaker. I am a Weekly Parenting TV Correspondent. I am a Spokesperson. I am a Mentor. I am a Hockey Mom. I am a serial Volunteer. I was a Woman on the Fence.
This blog was created for all women who have ever been on the fence… In Life. In Business. In Love. In anything. Period.
We are bright. We are dynamic. We are educated. We are perfectionists. We are tired. We love our husbands. We hate our husbands. We love our kids. Our kids annoy us. We want to work. We can’t juggle it all. We expect two dozen roses on our anniversary. We give. We get. We’re happy. We’re discouraged. We’re intuitive. We’re funny.
We’re women. Black. White. Asian. Hispanic. Through it all, we stick together.
Therefore my ladies, the goal of this Blog is to teach, inspire and unite all women. To let you all vent your frustrations about living life on the fence. It’s time to make a move. It’s time to GET OFF THE FENCE! It’s time to make up or break up. It’s time to quit your job. It’s time to enroll in medical school. It’s time to come out of the closet. It’s time to speak your truth. It’s time to start LIVING YOUR LIFE!
This blog is for you, if you care about being inspired, empowered, successful, and a thriving woman.
I want to hear from you… OFTEN! You will be my guide. I will abide by the laws of supply and demand. I will give you what you ask for. I will let you set the tone.
Today is your day.
You’re off to Great Places!
You’re off and away!
You have brains in your head.
You have feet in your shoes.
You can steer yourself
any direction you choose.
You’re on your own. And you know what you know.
And YOU are the guy who’ll decide where to go.
be your name Buxbaum or Bixby or Bray
or Mordecai Ali Van Allen O’Shea,
You’re off to Great Places!
Today is your day!
Your mountain is waiting.
So…get on your way!”
Oh The Places You’ll Go! ~DR. SEUSS

Erica Diamond (B.A. Psychology) is the Founder and Editor-In-Chief of WomenOnTheFence.com®: Certified Women’s Success and Lifestyle Coach, Weekly TV Parenting Correspondent, Award-Winning Entrepreneur, Author, Speaker, Spokesperson, Huffington Post Contributor, Mentor, and most recently Founder of the Global Get Off The Fence Movement. With over 20 years sales experience, and 15 years marketing experience, Erica Diamond is a born Entrepreneur and Coach. Using a small savings from her first job as a Marketing Manager at a large corporation, Erica built her Promotional Products Company, Unique Corporate Gifts from scratch in 1999 at 24 years old.
After enjoying seven years of great success with Unique Corporate Gifts, Erica sold it in 2006 to Canada’s Largest Bag Retail Chain to raise her young boys. Her first business journey awarded her a Young Entrepreneur Award, Top 30 under 30 Entrepreneur Award, Top 40 under 40 Entrepreneur Award nomination, among numerous others, and finally, The Profit Hot 50 Award – One of Canada’s 50 Emerging Growth Companies. She was the only female CEO on this list. Erica was also featured on the cover of the Business section of multiple newspapers, radio, magazines and television.
Fast forward to September 2009, the birth of her second venture, WomenOnTheFence.com®(now syndicated to over 2 million readers a month). With one son in grade school, and the other son in preschool, Erica started to get the entrepreneurial itch again, thinking “It’s time to create something again, but what will it be?” She knew she was too entrepreneurial to work for anyone. Sitting on the fence with what she wanted to do, she imagined that if she was on the fence – an intelligent mom and savvy business woman – there were probably others who were sitting on the fence too, in many aspects of their lives as well: how to raise their kids, how to keep the passion alive in a marriage, how to manage a career and parenthood, how to know when to quit your job and try something new, how to juggle friendships, how to stay in good health, how to find “me-time,” etc.
Erica envisioned a hub where bright, dynamic, modern, women and moms could be inspired, empowered, educated, entertained and learn something new in their life. She started writing, and it took off immediately. Using all her coaching and entrepreneurial talent and passion, women everywhere connected with the concept of being “stuck and on the fence,” unsure of where to go. Today, women come from around the world for a daily dose of success advice, hope, inspiration and laughter about all the “on the fence” issues women face today. If you’re single, married, divorced, a mom, a MomPreneur, a woman, you’ll love the captivating blog posts, articles and interviews written by Erica and her incredible team of Guest Bloggers and Celebrities alike. Ranging from light to thought-provoking, Erica’s goal is to leave you feeling inspired, educated, enlightened and entertained.
