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 Makati, Philippines. Life for me is better in Asia and I'm so happy here. This isn't 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. 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.

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.
