Become a Domestic Diva! Last Minute Halloween DIY Ideas

In honor of tomorrow night, one of my favorites of the year (behind The Grammys and American Music Awards), here are some fun, last minute, Halloween Do-It-Yourself craft ideas for your home to make you look like the Domestic Goddess you are.
I give you… this week’s Global TV Parenting segment.

To Marry For Love or Money?

To Marry For Love or Money?

We’ve all seen ’em in our communities. The girl who marries not for love, nor companionship, nor even looks for that matter. It’s the woman who marries for money. Hello, remember Anna Nicole Smith?

Overcoming Body Image Issues

Overcoming Body Image Issues

I moved to Los Angeles from Seattle ten years ago with a very mediocre body image. If I exercised and ate right, I felt better. I never had a six pack or anything hard core like that, but I still thought I looked okay. Then, when I arrived in Los Angeles (otherwise known as Lala Land) and started pursuing acting, the way I ‘felt’ wasn’t gonna cut it according to my agents and manager.

Wisdom Wednesday with Jason Derulo

Wisdom Wednesday with Jason Derulo

So, I experienced star-struckness (okay I know that’s not a word) this morning. But we LOVE music artist Jason Derulo in our house. We play his songs all the time (especially Ridin’ Solo, Don’t Wanna Go Home, and In My Head), and my kids know all the words. So when I got word last night that his live TV segment was going to air right after mine, I admit, I got excited!

So, You Wanna Become An Entrepreneur?

So, You Wanna Become An Entrepreneur?

Maybe you’re struggling with work life balance and craving more flexibility in your schedule. Maybe you have an idea you want to put forth into the world. Maybe your kids are now in school full time and you are wrestling with the idea of starting your own business. Maybe, maybe, maybe.

Well, I have a few more questions for you:

Do you wake up Monday morning and wish it were Friday already?
Are you tired of getting a paycheck for doing something you hate?
Are you a stay-at-home mom who is antsy to finally do something for herself while raising her kids?
Are you a professional who is looking to change career paths entirely?
Are you burning out in the corporate world?
Have you ever thought of turning your hobby into a career?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, you just may be ready to get off the fence and START YOUR OWN BUSINESS.

5 Men’s Fall Fashion Trends

5 Men’s Fall Fashion Trends

So, I’ve never done this one before… written a post for the MEN. But, most of fabulous women here in our community have men in their lives, so I wanted to share the men’s fall fashion trends as well (since I already shared the women’s fall fashion trends). I’m trying to be diplomatic here. 😉

So, if you’re trying to get your man to perhaps, be a little more stylish, check out the fall trends and must-haves for MEN. All of this beautiful fashion is from LE CHÂTEAU, the amazing apparel company who dresses me each week for my Global TV segments.

Erica Diamond’s Top 10 Secrets To Success

Erica Diamond’s Top 10 Secrets To Success

Happy Hump Day! As a Certified Women’s Life and Success Coach, I have worked with hundreds of women as a coach, consultant and mentor for almost 15 years. I have always been fascinated by success – you know, what makes someone successful, and I don’t just mean from a financial standpoint. I have studied success for thousands of hours, and have spoken on the topic many times. Based on my research, and based upon my own personal experience as a thriving mom, wife with career woman, here are my Top 10 Secrets to Success in Life and Womanhood. There are many more, but I tried to cover the ones that meant the most. I’d love to know yours, and I’d love you to share them below.

Let’s get to it, shall we?

Ending Mommy Wars

Ending Mommy Wars

There’s always a first for everything. This week, I did my first live TV interview with either food poisoning or a terrible case of the stomach flu. I still don’t know which it was (I ate mussels the night before the interview), and I still don’t know how I made it through. But somehow I did. Without vomiting. 😉

On this week’s parenting segment, Camille Ross and I talked why moms are so judgmental of one other. I showcased what one awesome group of working moms in Connecticut did to end “Mommy Wars,” and instead of judging each others’ differences, are SUPPORTING each others’ differences. It takes a village to raise a child, and we must be each other’s cheerleaders, not frenemies.
