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.

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.
