Motivation Monday: SPANX & My Confession

Happy Monday! Today, I wanted to publish a Motivation Monday, because that's just what I was after watching MAKERS' latest video on Sara Blakely. Firstly, if you're not familiar with Makers.com, may I suggest you head over there right after you finish reading (and watching) this post. They are doing some incredible work in the women's space.

Striving for Balance

By Guest Blogger Alison Kramer We should probably begin by defining success. To me, it meant spending my days doing something I loved. Having the flexibility to be present for school concerts, sick days and summers. Travel. And rarely, if ever, being told what to do. If you look at that list carefully, you will note I am basically unemployable –…

Freaky Friday

So, this is the deal, ladies. Our website got overtaken by hackers in Pakistan this past weekend. We then decided Monday morning to prematurely launch our new site redesign (it was the same amount of work to bring back the old site, or get the new one up and running). But maybe that was a mistake. We've been working on our blog redesign…

#WomenOnTheFence Celebrates Its 5th Blogiversary!

Today we celebrate the 5th anniversary of a blog that was born out of feeling stuck, on the fence, alone, confused, and wanting to create a space for women to get inspired, get off the fence, grow, succeed and thrive. You have made that happen. I am grateful for this community who has stood by me in my darkest hours,…

Remembering Joan

Joan Rivers was a woman off the fence. She lived life on her own terms. She was ballsy, gutsy, ridiculous at times. She wasn't afraid to speak her mind, and in fact, to her admission, her success came as a direct result. She was Simon Cowell before we even met Simon Cowell.

Meeting Barbara Walters and Sage Advice

It's not everyday you get to meet trailblazers. Glass ceiling breakers. It's not every day you get to meet people who were doing it FIRST. I have been fortunate enough to have met and interviewed some remarkable people over the years since starting this women's lifestyle brand 5 years ago, next month.

Wordless Wednesday: Tremblant Living for the Loving

A few weeks ago, I had the great privilege of vacationing in Mont Tremblant, a beautiful vacation resort about 90 minutes north of Montreal in the Laurentian Mountains. My family has been skiing at Tremblant for years, and while we are used to going during the wintertime, this was our first vacation there during the summer.
