Women’s Success Coach. I am an Editor-In-Chief and Blogger for all Women and Moms. I am an Award Winning Entrepreneur and Businesswoman
Using a small savings from her first job as a Marketing Manager at a large corporation, Erica built her Promotional Products Company, Unique Corporate Gifts from scratch in 1999 at 24 years old.
After enjoying seven years of great financial success with her Company, Erica sold her business in 2006 to Canada’s Largest Bag Retail Chain to raise her young boys. Her business journey along the way has awarded her a ProMontreal Young Entrepreneur Award, Top 30 under 30 Entrepreneur Award, Top 40 under 40 Entrepreneur Award nomination, 2011 RBC Canadian Women Entrepreneur Award nomination among numerous others, and finally, The Profit Hot 50 Award – One of Canada’s 50 Emerging Growth Companies. She was the only female CEO on this list. Erica has also been on the cover of the Business section of multiple newspapers including The National Post and Financial Post, and is a Media Personality frequently called-upon on television, radio, magazine and newspaper.
Fast forward to September 2009, the birth of WomenOnTheFence.com (now syndicated to over 2 million readers a month). With one son in grade school, and the other son in preschool, Erica started to get the entrepreneurial itch again, “It’s time to do something, but what can I do?” She knew she was too entrepreneurial to work for anyone. Sitting on the fence with what she wanted to do, she imagined that if she was on the fence – a smart, intelligent mom and business woman – there were probably others who were sitting on the fence in many other aspects of their lives as well: how to raise their kids, how to keep the passion alive with a marriage and a career, how to juggle friendships, how to find “me-time,” etc.
Erica envisioned a hub where bright, dynamic, modern, women and moms could get inspired, be entertained and learn something new in their life. She started writing, and it took off immediately. Women everywhere have connected with the concept of being “stuck and on the fence,” unsure of where to go. Today, women come from around the world for a daily dose of success advice, hope, inspiration and laughter about all the “on the fence” issues women face today. If you’re single, married, divorced, a mom, a MomPreneur, a woman, you’ll love the captivating blog posts, articles and interviews written by Erica and her incredible team of Guest Bloggers and Celebrities alike. Ranging from light to thought-provoking, Erica’s goal is to leave you feeling inspired, educated, enlightened and entertained.
