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.

Hustle and Heart... Friday, October 19

I was up super early today because of early morning personal training.  

Up at 5:30am, out by 7am, and then I didn't return till about 4pm.  

By the time 4pm came around, I had trained my clients and exhausted myself at boxing, caught up with business emails and a few business calls, and had one business meeting in between my last client and my boxing.

I crashed for an hour upon getting home, after showering, eating and walking the pups.  But I was awake by 6:30pm and out the door to do some errands.  I had to meet with one of my design teams and then get some pricing for something I'm working on for the Lil' Sistas Project.

Doesn't sound like much fun, right?  I enjoy it but it's a lot of work.


I posted a picture of me on Instagram, a response to something claiming I must "have so much free time" because I work for myself.  They couldn't be more far from the truth even if they wanted.
