Erica Diamond Interviews Huffington Post Founder Arianna Huffington

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.

Wordless Wednesday: A Dream Meeting With Arianna Huffington

Wordless Wednesday: A Dream Meeting With Arianna Huffington

Yes, today I got to meet and interview someone on my short list of “People I’d Like To Have Dinner With” Arianna Huffington, founder of The Huffington Post (others on my list include… Oprah Winfrey, Martha Stewart, Maya Angelou, Phil Knight, Richard Branson, Anthony Robbins, BIll Gates, Steven Spielberg, Madonna). As a Huffington Post contributor and an entrepreneur myself since the age of 24, it never grows tired when I have the opportunity to meet incredible visionaries and pioneers who have mastered their craft. It’s what turns me on. I’m still juiced.

I give you, the brains behind The Huffington Post, Arianna Huffington, et moi a Montreal. 😉

The Liz Lange Interview: Her Maternity Empire, Motherhood, and More

Liz, I’m thrilled to have you, a savvy entrepreneur and mom grace our blog. I don’t think Liz Lange Maternity needs much introduction– most of our mom readers know this well-known, fantastic brand. I loved my Liz Lange Maternity clothes when I was pregnant- comfort, style, affordability. Please tell us the story of how Liz Lange Maternity was born.

Erica Diamond Interviews Craig Newmark. Yah, THAT Craig- Founder of craigslist

Erica Diamond Interviews Craig Newmark. Yah, THAT Craig- Founder of craigslist

If you follow this blog, you know that I go after what I want. With RELENTLESS DETEMINATION. There is an interview I have wanted for some time. Yes, Craig. THE Craig, founder of craigslist (who nicely corrected my spelling of CraigsList, explaining it should be written in all lower-case). The way he spells craigslist and his newest initiative, craigconnects.org, is just so very Craig- understated, modest, simple. When I interviewed him, and I kept challenging him for more MEAT, more stories, more guts, for all my women who love details. But I learned something from Craig. Sometimes, less is more. He’s concise, and precise. But that doesn’t mean he isn’t all heart. Cuz he is. When I blamed my demand for more ‘meat’ on the battle of the sexes… that women are ‘oversharers’ and men are ‘undersharers,’ he told me, “that’s all I got.” So, in the words of my uncle who always tells his daughters to “land the plane” when they go off on a tangent, enjoy this simple, but powerful interview from a remarkable entrepreneur and do-gooder in this universe, Craig Newmark.

The 'Secret Sauce' To Becoming a Woman of Action - With Sheri Salata

The ‘Secret Sauce’ To Becoming a Woman of Action – With Sheri Salata

My hubby was on “Daddy duty” this past Sunday during our yearly women’s luncheon for Breast Cancer Research: “Women of Action, Pink Lady Fund.” Each year, three outstanding women in our community are honored for their accomplishments and tireless dedication to their work and community, and for being “a woman of action.” Six hundred women strong. The highlight of the event, is always the guest speaker. The event is only a few years old, but over the past few years, we have seen the likes of Marianne Pearl (who was portrayed by Angelina Jolie in the movie A Mighty Heart), Margaret Trudeau (former wife of our former Prime Minister Pierre Elliott Trudeau, who suffered with mental illness), and Jeannette Walls (author of the best-selling book, The Glass Castle).

Ramona, can you tell us a little bit about your business and how you got started, notably your skincare line TruRenewal, your jewelry line Ramona Singer Jewelry for HSN, True Faith Jewelry, and Ramona Pinot Grigio? This is a place where many entrepreneurs come to get inspired and educated. I read that your father gave you a $70,000 loan when you were 29 years old to start your own business, and you paid it back, with interest, in one month.

INTERVIEW: Erica Diamond Goes One-On-One with Actress Holly Robinson Peete

I recently had the privilege and honor of connecting with a great activist and actress, Holly Robinson Peete. Perhaps you remember her from 21 Jump Street with Johnny Depp. Perhaps you loved her on Hangin’ With Mr. Cooper, or watched her on The Apprentice raise the most money in the history of the show for her charity. Perhaps you loved her on CBS’s The Talk.

One thing I know about this chick… she is a straight shooter, honest, lovable and kind. Enjoy getting to know Holly in my interview…

Jill Zarin- Real Housewives of New York. I wanted the interview. I landed the interview. And I think you will agree after reading, why she was a perfect fit for WomenOnTheFence.com.

So I’m not going to wax on. Instead, I present you, Jill Zarin.

It’s usually me doing the interviewing. But a few weeks ago I had the pleasure of being interviewed by Emmy Award-Winning TV Host, Michelle Rivera. I have since seen the social media feedback as positive, which led me to believe that perhaps my readers would want to read the interview. I decided to post it on the blog, especially for the new and upcoming bloggers looking for tips.
