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.

A Continuation of the Week's Hectic Schedule... Monday, October 24

I woke up to the smell of flowers in my room – flowers that had been given to me yesterday. 

It was a brutally packed weekend and I was hoping to have today to recover, refresh and breath from it all but no such luck.  It was go, go, go from the moment I woke up.  At 4am I got a phone call from Korea and though I may have woken up to the smell of flowers, 4am is still 4am.  There was no disguising the brutalness of that.

Took the phone call and then went back to bed.

Woke up a few hours later, ready to start the day and attack my list of things to do.

I’m in the process of trying to plan a visit back to Korea, to get my stuff and do some legal stuff that needs to be done.  But in trying to plan this, I’m also trying to map out plans for the following…
  • Personal training licensing course
  • Remaining due courses for my boxing coach license
  • Getting my police record background check (for coaching license)
  • Setting up a possible next fight overseas
  • Figuring out where I’ll be living once the lease is up at my apartment
  • Planning a club Christmas party
  • Getting my G1 license
  • Setting up when to take the CPR/First Aid course
