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.

The Entrepreneur Saves the Athlete... Saturday, December 18

Today's Schedule:
10am      Personal training session with one of my clients.
11:20am  Pick up my last paycheck at female-only gym downtown.
12pm      Brunch with the Captain.
1:30pm    Stop by Clancy's Boxing.
7:30pm    Grant African Church Christmas production.

Today I got paid... three times!
I got paid by my personal training client.
I got paid by the female-only gym for my last shifts.
I got paid by Clancy's Boxing for coaching Team Blue.

I trekked around Toronto today collecting some paychecks and, I'm not going to lie, it felt pretty good but I know this money has to hold me over till maybe as late as mid April.  

On Monday I have another two pay checks to pick up, sweet.  My hard work is paying off.  My days of being a "starving athlete" are over.  I am still an athlete but the entrepreneur in me is keeping me fed and full.
