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.

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!
