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.

A Strong MonSLAY... Monday, February 12

I've been working for awhile on a website for Empowered.  I pick at it, add things here and there, drop things, adjust other things, and play around with some ideas on it.  It's not yet done but will it ever really be?  It'll always be evolving, just like me.  I overthink a lot of things, I know, I'm well aware of this, and often this is what holds me back.  I want to prepare and then prepare some more.  My move to the Philippines wasn't a planned thing, I was just suppose to be here for three months, so my move here was totally unexpected.  But it's proven to be so worth the jump.  I took a leap of faith, jumped with two feet, and landed nicely here in The Fort, BGC.  

Today I took another jump.  Well, I was more like pushed.

I was pondering over the website when I decided to take a break and go to the bathroom.  I was talking to Snickers and he had been sitting there watching me.  When I was in the bathroom he took out his credit card and went into my wix profile.  

And just like that, my website was launched.

I had already purchased the domain name but hadn't yet paid for wix or made the connection.  Today it happened.

They say if you wait till you're ready you'll never be ready.  Many times there is no waiting till you're ready, till you're comfortable.  Instead, it's just about taking that leap of faith and going with it.  I'm going with my website.  I'd love it if you'd check it out and give me some feedback.  I have a mini blog on it that's more or less just for Empowered-focus things like events and training sessions I'm running and other random notices.  

It's just a website, sure, but it is more of Empowered that I'm putting out there for the world, potential investors and future clients to critic, judge me, and formulate their opinion about me and my company on.
