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.

Building Up My Team... Saturday, February 3

Juggling the numbers for Empowered late in the evening, I made an interesting discovery.

With no business partner now, I can afford to hire three additional workers and give myself more equity... nice.  I'm planning on making two of those three workers boxing coaches and make the third my assistant/social coordinator.  I even know exactly who I want to hire for the positive and have gone as far as to offer her the job.  She'd be like a PR rep but her job has a lot of potential for movement within the company and additional responsibilities.  It's a very tailored job I created specifically for someone who has personally always supported me and what I'm doing with Empowered.  

Hard times make people hungry for more and I think this particular person is hungry because she's having a bit of a rough situation with her current job.  She wants more and she deserves more.  Plus she's got a really sweet personality is just is a really, really nice person -- always positive, very punctual and always wanting to improve herself and learn more.  

Start-Up Crew for Empowered:
Me -- Head Coach
Boxing Coach
Social Coordinator/ Assistant
2 Fuel Longe Ladies
2 Front Desk Gals
... an Empowered team of 7... love it.

Hi Anonymous #1,

Yes, I do have the funds to build and run my own empire. Thank you for your concern. It's called investors. If you'd care to join them, please drop me a private email. If not, that's okay too. Just continue watching and see how it all comes together.

Hello Anonymous #2,
True, at one point I didn't but I do know. Not sure how that's funny except for cruel funny but okay.
