Hello World… I Finally did it!!

Hi to all my Women out there! I am Erica Diamond. I am 34.  I am Wife.  I am a Mother of 2 young boys. I am an Award Winning Entrepreneur and Businesswoman. I am a Hockey Mom. I am a serial Volunteer. I am a Woman On The Fence.

This blog was created for all of us women who are 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,  my goal of this Blog is to 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!

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 o Great Places!
Today is your day!
Your mountain is waiting.
So…get on your way!”

Oh The Places You’ll Go!


Now, here I go. I’m getting off the fence…

  2. As authentic as you’ve always been Erica! Love the idea… ingnite the spark in the RIGHT direction. Looking forward to your blog. Warm hugs, Tania

    PS. Another recommended read is “Not Guilty- My Guide To Working Hard, Raising Kids And Laughing Through The Chaos” by Debbie Travis.

  3. You’re doing it. You always do it. And this time you are sharing it. That’s huge. And from this we all grow exponentially. Jesse is now 24 and ready to marry you. : )
    I love you.

  4. Great start Er! Can’t wait to read more! I get the GOOP Newsletter from Gwyneth Paltrow, that’s a great one with recipes, activities, horizon-broadening ideas for those of us who are not resigned to sitting on any fences…

  5. What a great notion. As an exhausted non “fence sitter” I applaud you and wish you luck and fun. It’s 8:39 on Friday night and I’m in bed – pathetic evidence that I’m your audience. Keep ’em coming.

  6. hilly, too bad you had to find out the awful truth this way! but yes there are fleeting moments in a woman’s life where she actually hates her husband. lucky for them it doesn’t last too long. flowers and foot massages help! 😉

  7. Hey GIRL, you are sooooooo creative, i think you will like doing this thing!! good luck!! btw: great idea, you always have great ideas!!! you GO GIRL!! xoxoxo & hugs k

  8. I am SO THERE. At some point past the age of 40 I realized that I have been on the fence for quite a long time. The economy has really pointed up that fact in the past several months. Were it not for the delicate balance I have achieved between my career and my personal experience as a mom, I might have gotten off the fence a long while ago.

  9. Congrats Erica. I’m confused, I always thought u had a blog? I’m guessing this is a relaunch or rebrand? Either way mazels my love!!
