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.

One Great Idea Has Me Thinking More Ideas... Monday, October 17

Yesterday I lost my iPhone and today I got a new one, just like that.

Hello Bunz... thank you Bunz.

Seriously, if you don't know what Bunz is than I highly recommend you to check it out on Facebook.  Bunz is an old school bartering Facebook group where you can request things or offer things but things can't be sold or bought with money.  You have to barter.  Many people ask for subway tokens or gift certificates.  Today I offered my services -- personal training.

Bartered for a free phone -- her iPhone for four personal training sessions, and just like that I had a new phone.  Picked it up today before lunch, sweet, and the success of this deal has definitely put the wheels in my head in my motion.  I'm a starving athlete but I have needs just like the next person... but I've got a service that isn't cheap.  This could be my ticket to getting things, very cool.
