As the story has it, one day I headed to the opposite side of the globe – the Flipside. I arrived in Korea on February 16th, 2005 and thought I’d do a year, then leave. 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 returned to Toronto, Canada. But then I left again. This time it was for the Philippines. That's where I am 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 With a Get-it-Done Female... Thursday, July 6

I wrote on my Facebook status at exactly 11:14pm that I seriously think I have hit the jackpot with my new broker.  After spending most of my day looking at locations online and dealing with random brokers on the phone and through email, I finally met my match.

I had talked to a total of six brokers... woozers.

But then it happened, I came across her.

The fact that she's a female is only perfect because my female-only company is being built so far by females only so it's pretty awesome to add her to my crew.

This broker called me twice and then phone texts that started at 12:42pm went well into the evening with the last one being at 11:21pm when she told me she'd text me in the morning to discuss which locations we will be seeing tomorrow.  Oh, and she emailed me a file she had put together of several possible locations... ALL of which are located in Makati and ALL of which bigger and cheaper than I expected and all within my budget.

And THAT'S how you hustle it like a boss babe!
