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.

Office Work Day... Thursday, October 5

Thursdays are meant for office work for me.  Doing all that "fun" background stuff that comes with launching your own business and trying to propel it forward which means it's spent answering emails, typing up business plans, setting up meetings, going to meetings, and every thing in between.  Thursdays and Saturdays are the only two days of the week when I don't actually box with Saturday being the only day off I have of training.  On Thursdays I do sprints or I go to the boxing club to do functional weight training with the kettle bells but the rest of the day, the entire day for that matter, is spent sitting at my kitchen table with my computer popped open and coffee in hand.  

Today's mission was to create two new business cards, one for my partner and one for myself.  

Confession here... almost all of my photos are edited via my cell phone, it's true.  It's ghetto but it's true and unless I told you else what you would have never suspected it.

Today's office work...

  • Respond to emails regarding Hulk's Boxing.
  • Contact some coaches in Korea.
  • Work on English/Korean translations for Hulk's Boxing.
