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.

A New Level of Exhaustion... Friday, November 3

My body most definitely knows it's Friday.  It feels it's Friday, all 1000 and 1 parts and pieces of my body.  By the time I finished boxing though, I was seriously ready to crash and call it a night, call it a week actually.  I couldn't though.  I had a business meeting out in BGC and tonight was Skittles' soft opening party.  Many of his family, friends, investors and business associates would be there so I knew I had to be on my best behavour and looking good.  Many of his business associates are business associates of me or are potentials.  

Tonight was going to be big and it was.  Tonight was definitely big. 

I was so incredibly exhausted but so incredibly proud of Skittles.  He was absolutely loving all the people flooding his new mens-only salon.  He's quite the social butterfly and he was buzzing all over the place.  I, on the other hand, I don't like crowds so I found my comfortable spot on the couch and pretty much claimed it for the rest of the evening.  

I didn't get home till after midnight and when I arrived home I pretty much couldn't mentally function or make a full sentence, I was so exhausted.  But I had made it to the end of a very intense week of training and had attended a very successful soft-opening party -- success and success.
