As the story has it, one day I headed to the opposite side of the globe – the Flipside. I arrived in Korea February 16th, 2005 and thought I’d do a year, then leave. I was wrong. I stayed, launched my first company, Flipside Fitness, and then opened Korea's largest boxing club, Hulk's Boxing (now called Hulk's Club).

After 11.5yrs in Korea, I then picked up one day and returned to Toronto, Canada. But then I left again.

Now I live in the Philippines where I am the CEO and head coach of Empowered Clubhouse, the Philippines' first and only boxing clubhouse exclusively just for women. I also am the founder of the Lil' Sistas Project, CEO and designer of Slay Gear and Baa Baa Black Sheep .Ph.

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.
