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.

Finding the Path to my Ikigai and Happiness

The Japanese have this thing called Ikigai.  It's all about finding your niche in life.
I've been consumed with thinking about it lately but I think I know what mine is, it's my Second Dream.  My issue is trying to find out the means to take my Ikigai, my Second Dream, and take it from being a long stream of thoughts and ideas in my head and making it a reality.
These days things have really started to fall into place and now I'm a part of a church I call home.
I really miss my church over on Ossington but haven't heard anything from any of them.  It is what it is though and I don't care to get sad about it.  Only forward movement, positive thinking, please.  I'm definitely feel more and more at home at this new church though and today, when service ended, something so beautiful happened to me.
