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.

More Interested in the "Side Shows"... Saturday, August 12

Best thing about History Con for me was meeting numerous entrepreneurs who have launched their own little shops and were selling their product/service at the expo.  I met a young artist who for just a few bucks draws you into a cartoon character.  It's not a caricature like one would expect, she makes you look like a superhero.  I really wanted to get her to draw me but I discovered her right as I was leaving.  

Another really impressive entrepreneur I met was this young lady who launched her own metal jewelry company though I should note she makes more than just jewelry.  She uses a kind of welding metal to create this one of a kind, custom pieces, like rings, bookmarks and keychains.  She made me a bracelet, an Empowered bracelet, and I totally love it.
