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.

A Night About Mess Ups

Tonight I was one of the guest speakers at F-Up Nights Manila, an event by Impact Hub, and I was joined by non other than a fellow boss babe that I chit chat with on social media.  We've never actually met, despite living in the same city block, so tonight it was pretty cool to finally meet and have her come out to support me.

The purpose of the event was to share your mess ups as an entrepreneur.
Honestly, I rather hear about how someone messed up than how they succeeded because these days I've been meeting too many fake-it-till-you-make-it entrepreneurs and wantrepreneurs that really talk big but not real.
