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.

Staying Inspired, Focused and Determined

We all define ourselves differently and labelling myself as "average" or "normal" was never a goal
of mine.  I want to be so much more than I already am so to not pursue my potential
and aim to stretch it would be such a personal disappointment. 
My first reaction when I saw this particular quote was to laugh because back when I was creating Hulk's, eating physical food had gone from being a necessity to a luxury.  It was either feed my construction workers or feed myself.  I fed them and lived off whatever food and coffee friends brought.  I fed off the drive to make my dream come true.
Oh I'm going to get it.  Still dealing with a bit of sensory overload with how to go about it but it's definitely in the works and every day I'm closure than I was the day before.
This is going to happen... just waiting for the pop.
