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.

Adding Up the Numbers... Thursday, May 11

While laying in bed tonight, struggling to stop my brain from working on overtime, I figured out some numbers...

When I ran Hulk's in Korea I worked a 70hr, 6 day work week.  

I'm pretty much still working a 70hr work week but it's a 7 day week.  Today I spent 4hrs training between boxing and weight training, and then I spent 6 hours business planning.

My upcoming business poses a possibly 90hr, 7 day work week unless I hire a crew. 

I have 6 job positions I have to hire for, for the daily running of my business, so I'm looking at about 20 people I have to hire.  And this doesn't even account for the hired help I'll have to get for the setting up and construction of my business. 

I've been making a lot of contacts here though so I'm very optimistic that once I get my written-in-stone investors the ball will start to roll super fast.  Already I have made connections and know who I'll be hiring for my realtor, PR Rep, corporate lawyer, graphic street artist, and renovation team.
