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.

Let's Get this Bad Boy Printed... Saturday, July 1

I celebrated Canada Day -- Canada's 150th birthday -- by finalizing my business plan set for here, in the Philippines.  It's been a busy week but today I finally got a chance to designate a good chunk of hours to working on my business proposal.  I finished it, finally, and then I headed out to print it.  No such luck.  Makati may be a busy and infested city during the week but when the weekend hits it's pretty dead here.  A lot of the businesses don't open because the people just aren't here.  More people work here than live here.

I can't even remember when I started working on my business plan but it was all set in Toronto and then a little over a month ago I decided to set it here in the Philippines so I had to change it all.  Toronto is so different than the Philippines and so I had to start a big portion of my research all over again.  But now it's done.  I was really hoping to get it printed today but now it'll have to wait till Monday.  

My business proposal is done... it's 49 pages long.
