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.

Weekend Work Overload... Sunday, January 28

I've yet to find a church here in BGC so, until then, Sunday mornings are spent figuring out what to eat and what to work on for Empowered.  There's always work to do, it never ends, but I love it.

I've started working on an Empowered company profile book today.  It's 28 pages so far.

Next Sunday I'll be launching my BoxHIIT in the Park and I'm going with it being free.  There's no fee, no sign up, and no way of me knowing who and how many want participate until I show up to coach them so it's going to be a bit challenging to plan out.  I'm running it for free because the idea behind that is that if participants really like it then, once I launch the actual physical building for Empowered, there's a good potential that some of them will follow me and join Empowered.  Regardless of if they do or they don't, it's a form of advertising for Empowered and me.  That one hour, once a week, free session could be the launch pad for further exposure, connections, and endless opportunities.  Plus, it'd give me ample opportunity to test out what works and see what doesn't work without much risk involved.  If participants don't enjoy it, well, then they don't have to participate.  It's not like they're paying for it so they're not stuck in a commitment.  Having said this, it also means they can't really be demanding or have such high expectations because it's free.  It's like a win-win situation.
