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.

The Power of a Little Boy

 I woke up like this... Balboa sitting on my chest, waiting patiently for me to wake up.
Me trying to trust the journey but having no patience today to fully do so.
Annnnnnnnnd... he's back on my chest.  
Midday walk means a midday talk with him on my chest, listening but waiting for me to cuddle him.
It had been a stressful and very trying day but I think Balboa knew that, hence the loads of extra attention and extra long moments of him sitting on my chest.  He knows it calms me down.
