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.

Feeling the Pressure... Saturday, March 17

The hardest part of my boxing isn't the actual training, the boxing, it's the walk to and from the boxing club.  When I look over and see that big Telus building starring back at me.  It's in that building that I want to launch Empowered.  This time next week that building will either be mine or it won't be mine.  Already the walk to the Philippine Army Gym is a hard one because I see that building.  This time next week, it'll either become a super happy one or an incredibly sad one.

It all comes down to what goes down this Wednesday.

Less than a week, less than a handful of days.

I gave my investors until Tuesday/Wednesday to tell me how much they're investing and on Wednesday I have to tell MegaWorld whether or not we're taking the space.  If I get at least 4 million pesos invested, I'm taking it.  If I don't, I can't. 

To want something so bad and to be so close to either getting it or losing it... wow.
