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.

An End and a Beginning?!... Saturday, June 30

At the KMC Solutions meeting today I got into quite an interesting discussion with a young, energetic guy that was super supportive of me and Empowered, my business.  We talked about the power of social media and I had noted that though I don't have many followers on Instagram, about 1800, my followers are quite interactive with me.  Many of them like my pictures but some of them post comments on my pictures and some go even further with messaging me privately about my Instagram Stories.  On an average day, I'd say that I get anywhere from 4 to 15 private messages from followers.

So my numbers are low but my interaction is pretty high.

It's pretty cool.  
What this particular young guy recommended to me was to start a Vlog, a suggestion that many others have given me actually.  I don't really know how to do a Vlog though and I doubt the camera on my phone will be sufficient.  It's another added expense too that I really can't afford so that may be the crash and burn of that idea.

Homepages are kind of out dated I find.  They're a lost form of entertainment, perhaps like MySpace.  I don't know.  Vlogs are the thing and YouTube is ranked as still the number one form of social media.

An idea I'll consider and look into.  

Now to see if any of my friends have a good camera they can perhaps sell me on the cheap.
