As the story has it, one day I headed to the opposite side of the globe – the Flipside. I arrived in Asia February 16th, 2005 and thought I’d 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, 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 left. I returned to Toronto, Canada 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. But then I left again. This time it was for the Philippines. That's where I'm at 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.

Going Hard with the Hustle... Saturday, January 7

4.5hrs at the library.
3hrs at home.
7.5hrs in total today spent on my business proposal.

Researching info, sorting through format stuff, typing stuff up, brainstorming ideas.

My original plan was to finish my business proposal by January 31st, because I thought I'd be heading out to the Philippines on that day, but now I have a little more time.  More time, that is, if I don't fly out to Mexico to train and fight before heading out to the Philippines.  Regardless, my fly out date for the Philippines has been pushed to February.

I need to get a rough draft of my business proposal done before the Philippines.

My plan is to go to the Philippines at the end of February, leave in late May/early June. Fly to Korea to conclude my stuff there.  Stay there for a couple of weeks, at most, then be back in Canada by mid June.  Start approaching investors and looking at real state, and adopt my Olga Ali.  Not too sure on when exactly to adopt her and by that I mean when in my coming true of my Second Dream would be appropriate to do so.  Do I wait till I have my grand opening of it to adopt her or do I get her in the process leading up to it, like when I get my location, first investor, or what?  What milestone in making my Second Dream come true do I go and get my girl Olga???
