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.

Building My Team... Thursday, March 29

I had a meeting today with probably the only other woman working on this Holy Week Thursday, a potential investor. She's a young boss lady who has quite the impressive hustle, flying in and out of the Philippines on almost a bi-weekly bases. Her busy schedule makes her a hard one to catch but today we had arranged to meet up for coffee and to talk business, to talk about Empowered. 

She's in. She definitely is a poster child for what my business is about and she's definitely in. 

With approaching potential investors for Empowered, I've come to the conclusion that I need to be approaching a more specific type of investor. Investors that are entrepreneurs, more specifically entrepreneurs who have built something and/or females that are into fitness and are health conscious. 

My confirmed investors, they're all big into health and fitness, one is a fellow fighter actually and another is someone I've coached in boxing and they're all entrepreneurs who have built something. I couldn't be happier to have them on my team because they get my vision, they see the potential of what I'm starting, and they understand my mission.
