As the story has it, one day I headed to the opposite side of the globe – the Flipside. I arrived in Korea on February 16th, 2005 and thought I’d do a year, then leave. I went from being some random foreign girl to taking on labels I never imagined – university professor, film extra, professional boxer, reality TV star, CEO of my own girls-only fitness company (Flipside Fitness), CEO of my own boxing club (Hulk's Club, formerly known as Hulk's Boxing), and now I'm launching my 3rd business -- Empowered Clubhouse.

After 11.5yrs in Korea, I then picked up one day and returned to Toronto, Canada. But then I left again. This time it was for the Philippines. That's where I am now, living in the land of the happy people. The struggles are real and the struggles are many but I'm living life on my terms, I'm calling the shots, and I'm doing what I love. Life is an amazing adventure and this is my story of yesterday.

Finally Some Final Decisions... Friday, September 16

What was anticipated to be a short discussion and quick picking got stretched for hours.

Today I picked the fighters for my team, Team Blue, for Agency Wars Alumni Thunder.

My assistant, our team manager, picked me up from my apartment in Cabbagetown and then we headed off to Clancy's Boxing together.  So far so good with working with him.  We seem to be a good match and click well.  I can't quite master the poker face needed during our team pickings talk today with the opposing team but that's okay. 

We had met at 4pm for the meeting, we left at 5:30pm.  Text messages and phone calls regarding the pickings last long into the evening and into the late night.  Everything was finalized at 11:22pm.

I'm confident with who we've picked, with who we got, and with the team that finally evolved out of the messiness of it all.  Go Team Blue!
