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.

Not One but Other Struggles... Wednesday, November 8

Embracing a bit of the suck today.  Just frustrated with feeling like I'm a hamster in a wheel, busting my butt off but getting no where fast.  It's also hard to be seeing Skittles' success with his newly-launched business and not trying to be green with envy.  I know how he hustled though, that guy hustled hard and heavy, and I know he's due all the success he's getting, but it doesn't mean it's not hard to see.  I want to be 100% proud of him and I am but I also want to be 100% happy for him and I know I'm not really there.

The struggle is real but the struggles are more than most know.
