It is with great excitment and joy that I share this news today with you, my incredible Women On The Fence readers. This has been over three years in the making. If you have been following on Facebook or Twitter, you might have seen that I am starting a movement. Yes, a MOVEMENT. It was an AHA moment that hit me over the head like a ton of bricks. The Worldwide GET OFF THE FENCE Movement is coming!

Here is what it’s all about:

The GET OFF THE FENCE Movement was created by Erica Diamond, Founder and Editor-in-Chief of the Award-Winning Lifestyle Brand Women On The Fence®. This movement is about taking the leap, and jumping OFF THE FENCE to a better you. To a thriving you.

This community is for everyone – young and old, man, woman and child. This movement is about holding yourself accountable to your goals, and motivating others to do the same. We’re all on the fence or stuck about something in our life. It’s time to GET OFF THE FENCE! It’s time to make up or break up, quit your job, come out of the closet, stop procrastinating, start your own business, lose weight, get healthy, break up with that toxic friend, volunteer, stop bullying, go to bed early, stop obsessing over your smart phone. Whatever it is holding you back, you are taking the pledge to GET OFF THE FENCE.

Please SHARE YOUR STORY on our Facebook wall. We are building a judgment-free community to share your story, get off the fence, help others, and achieve your goals. It can be sharing your poster, your video, an inspirational quote or message, or anything else. Because sharing your story is the first step to taking the leap…

I hope you’ll join us and take the pledge to GET OFF THE FENCE, and take the leap to your best you.


More details to come….

So what is this movement REALLY ABOUT you may ask? This movement is about holding yourself accountable to your goals and thriving. It’s about taking the first step. Our new Facebook community will be where you can check in with others who are also working towards their goals, discuss challenges, triumphs and more. The mobile phone App will be where you will be able to enter in your OFF THE FENCE goal, get inspiration, motivation, videos, etc….

My goal is for this movement to spread like a virus – you get off the fence, and grab a friend with you. It’s like the CHEESE TOUCH in Diary of a Wimpy Kid (I’m a mom of course) – once you’ve been touched, you have the ‘cheese touch,’ and it passes to every person you touch. My goal is through YOUR STORIES, you will inspire someone else who is stuck in their life, to take the leap with you. Because once you know that someone else can do it, it makes it more real for yourself to get off the fence and just do it.

A few of the people who have jumped on board:

Have YOU gotten off the fence? Are you still on the fence? You could be part of our YouTube video currently in the works. Your story could inspire someone to create change in their own life. If you are, please email your picture to [email protected].
