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.

Stepping Back for My Second Dream... Wednesday, November 16

Today's Schedule:
6:15am       Coach at the female-only gym
12pm         Train PT client, "Deadly Lady D"
1pm           Train PT client, "Give-the-Hell" H.
2pm           Drop by Warriors
3pm      '    Work on my business proposal, Distillery District
6pm           Scoring Seminar for Agency Wars fight night at Clancy's Boxing
7:30pm       Coach Team Blue at Clancy's Boxing

9pm          WAS SUPPOSED TO GO TRAINING... but didn't....

I took the night off training.  I know, I know, impossible to think I did such a thing but I did.  After the third cup of coffee proved to be just as ineffective as the first, I decided that perhaps I had exhausted myself and needed to catch up on my business planning.  I had been up since 5am, have been running at full speed for weeks now, and my Second Dream planning had been pushed aside because my focus had been on Team Blue and coaching at the female-only gym. 

In exactly two weeks my Team Blue will be stepping into the ring to fight and so it's coming down to the crunch.   I've been at Clancy's Boxing 4 days a week for the past eight weeks and as sad as it'll be to have that over and done with, I think two more weeks of it are all I can honestly handle.  I love coaching my team but it's eating my energy and time like there's no tomorrow.  The women-only gym and Team Blue take up most of my time and energy.  Consequently, because of the two, my days start around 5am and end at 11:30pm because fitting it all I have to do in between those two committments is rough.  I knew taking on both something would have to give and it's been my training and time on my Second Dream that has.

Tonight I was finally able to devote a chunk of time and undivided attention to my Second Dream.
