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.

Work, Work, Work... Tuesday, November 8

Today's Schedule:
8am-9pm            Flipside Fitness boot camp in High Park
10am                   Business phone call with Korea
10:30am-11am   Studying at the Toronto Reference Library      
11:30am              Background police check phone call (for finalizing boxing coaching license)
12pm-8pm          Coaching at the women's only gym downtown
9pm-11pm          Boxing and weight training at System Fitness

I woke up at 6:30am and left my house today at 7:20am so that I could make it across town for my 8am boot camp in High Park. And in between leaving the house at 7:20am and arriving back home around 11:45pm, I had a whack of things to do, people to see, places to go.  Trying to find time to do my laundry these days... wow.  The struggle IS real! 

Entrepreneur: a person who works 24/7 to avoid a 40 hour work week.

There are entrepreneurs and there are wantapreneurs -- wanna be's who, for whatever reason, aren't actually entrepreneurs. Some of them aren't entrepreneurs because they don't sport the dedication, passion and drive. Others don't nurse their own ideas and individuality, and then there are those who simply just don't have the guts to take the leap of faith and fly on their own. 

I calculated my weekly "work" hours today...
36hrs        Women-only gym
5hrs           Flipside Fitness
5hrs           Coaching Team Blue
5hrs           Library time
16hrs         Training (boxing/ weight training/ running)
TOTAL:    67 hours 
I am an entrepreneur.
