INTERVIEW: The Secret To Success and How To Live Your Passion With Adam Braun

“Four years ago, I sat at my desk overlooking the Manhattan skyline from the 25th floor of 3 Times Square. I was in my mid-twenties, earning a six-figure salary at Bain & Company, which has now been rated the #1 global consulting firm by Consulting Magazine for 11 years straight. I looked down at the drafted email on my desktop, took a deep breath, and pressed send. The email notified more than 400 coworkers and friends that I was leaving what I’d previously believed was my dream job to pursue the non-profit I had founded, Pencils of Promise (PoP).

Erica Diamond Interviews Jazz Pop Music Phenom Nikki Yanofsky

I recently sat down with jazz pop sensation Nikki Yanofsky, and what I discovered was a cool, bright, articulate and grounded young woman who knows what she wants, is doing what she loves, and is chasing her passion with fierce determination.

INTERVIEW: Erica Diamond Gets Up Close and Personal with Kristen Johnston

I was watching 20/20 about three weeks ago, and saw the familiar, smiley face that is Kristen Johnston. But, it wasn’t such a smiley interview. It was deep, and it was dark. I was mesmerized. Her story was riveting. I chased her down until I found her, and am thrilled to feature her today on WomenOnTheFence.com.

I give you, actress, author, and activist, Kristen Johnston.

Interview with Soledad O’Brien: On Career, Marriage, Motherhood and More

When I met Soledad O’Brien for the first time in August at Blogher, in New York City, I was truly intrigued. She is the CNN anchor we watch daily cover hurricanes, disasters, and important news. Yet, when you speak to her in person, she has this other side. This aura to her. A sweet, fun-loving, and exceptionally charming side. To top it off- she’s a mom of four children. I loved her essence, and so I asked her for an interview. Her response, “I will never forget Women On The Fence. You have my word, I will give you an interview.”

Erica Diamond Interviews Huffington Post Founder Arianna Huffington

I am still on a high from meeting a true pioneer and leader in her field, Arianna Huffington, founder of The Huffington Post. This woman is the real deal. When you talk to her, you can FEEL her energy. She gives you direct eye contact (which I love), a firm handshake, and lets you know she HEARS you. This woman is open, and oozes creativity. It is palpable.

When I got word I was granted an interview with Arianna, I was excited. If you are a regular reader, you know that entrepreneurship is very near and dear to my heart, so to be able to chat about all things life and business, (and to pick her brain), was quite thrilling.
