As the story has it, I woke up and found myself on the very opposite side of the globe – the flipside. I arrived February 16th, 2005 and thought I’d simply do a year, then leave. Years later and I’m still here. I went from being some random foreign girl to taking on labels I never imagined – university professor, film extra, professional boxer, CEO of my own girls-only fitness company, Flipside Fitness, and CEO of my own boxing club, Korea's largest -- Hulk's Club, formerly known as Hulk's Boxing.

After 11.5yrs in Korea, I picked up one day and left. I returned to Toronto, Canada but only to pack up my bags and venture out again. Now I'm living in Makate, Philippines. Life, for me, is better in Asia and I'm so happy here. This a new chapter in the book of my life though, it's a whole new book I've started!!! I'm a whole new woman and I left Korea with Flipside Fitness on my brain, Hulk's in my heart, boxing in my bag, and my four-legged friend Balboa Button by my side.

Life is an 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.
