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.

Preparing to Launch... Wednesday, February 15

I'm definitely putting "it" out there, out into the universe... 

"It" refers to my Second Dream.

I sat down today and slaved away at securing different social media links -- Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, email address, and domain name.  Before I leave for the Philippines the plan is to launch the website for my Second Dream thus revealing the actual name of it for all to see.  

A part of me is nervous to reveal my next company's name, the name of my Second Dream.  I know copy cats exist but I also know that copy cats can't duplicate the passion and love I have for what I'm about to launch.  I've put countless time and effort into this.

This is my Second Dream but if Flipside Fitness was the stepping stone to Hulk's Boxing and Hulk's Boxing was the stepping stone to Hulk's Club, than Hulk's Club is the stepping stone to this, to my Second Dream.  It's almost as if I've gone full circle actually; it's Flipside Fitness but on the same magnitude as Hulk's Club but done with no business partners.  It's just me, myself and I.   

Tomorrow I'm going to get a sweater printed with my new company's name on it, the name of my Second Dream, and I'm super giddy just thinking about it.  I'm curious who will comment on it first.
