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.

Time is Ticking... Saturday, April 7

Twice I was mistaken today as being one of the coaches at the Philippine Army Gym.  One member asked me if the club had an extra pair of hand wraps and another member asked me if they could put music on.  

I AM a coach but I'm not a coach at the Philippine Army.

Yet again the universe is telling me to get my ducks in order and launch Empowered, seriously.

To everything there is a purpose and a plan, a right time and a way, but I question every day when this is going to start to unfold itself for me, for Empowered.  I think things happen because you make them happen so I struggle with accepting the notion that things happen "in due time".  Where there's a will there's a way so perhaps it's not about a "right time" or time at all except the time it takes for you to figure out the way to make your will happen.  I don't know.  

The frustrations are real.
