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.

Boxing with Business on the Mind

I'm switching food delivery companies so this week no food has been coming for me.  It's been just me cooking for me, if you'd even call what I'm doing "cooking".  This was my breakfast.  Even the pups were confused. 
Despite being all smiles, I arrived at boxing feeling like I just had the crap beaten out of me.
 Coach Marcelo sensed it so he tried hard to readjust my focus and get me laughing.
I must admit though, I was struggling to stay focused on my training because my mind was elsewhere.
I have to give it to them though, to Coach Marcelo and my buddies at the boxing club.  They always have such positive vibes and I do feel supported here, not only with my boxing but also with my business.
