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.

I'm Different, He's Not... Thursday, December 21

It's coming to the end of the year but I'm not slowing down one bit.

This time next year every thing is going to be different, mark my words.

This time last year I was living in Canada and now I'm living in the Philippines.

Two years ago, a bit over, I was living in Korea.

This time next year, I'll be typing you this from the inside of my new business, Empowered Clubhouse, and it's going to be amazing.  

I had a chat with Snickers about it tonight... yes, you read right, Snickers.  He had texted me several times, asking when I had time to talk.  I agreed upon tonight, tonight at 10pm, so that's exactly when we talked.  It was a short conversation, it always is, but he asked me if I was happy here in the Philippines.  Yes, I am very happy here.  Of course I miss my close friends in Canada but I'm doing what I love here and I'm surrounded by such awesome people that support and encourage me.  I have a whole different life here and though the struggle is real, the struggle is one I know is worth fighting for because I'm not alone fighting it here.  

Snickers says he's going to move to the Philippines for some kind of work connected to Bitcoin.  I don't take it seriously though and I refuse to read into it.  I have my own opinion of Bitcoin just like I have my opinion of Snickers wanting to move here but I won't give it.  My concern is with Hulk's and with Empowered.  Our third business partner is running full force with Hulk's so I know it's in good hands but I don't want Snickers here.  I can't have him here.  It's already a little nerve racking to be living so close to Korea but to get word that he's thinking about moving here.  It better just be all talk.  I'm finally healing from all the damage he did, I don't want to unravel all the efforts to build myself up that has been done.  I feel like this is just another head game and I'm not playing so beyond expressing somewhat of an opinion here on my homepage this will be the extent to which I give it even a second thought.
