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.

Busy Bere... Monday, November 12

Today I didn't have any morning clients because one returned to the Philippines last night and one is returning today.  It was a nice day off coaching but it definitely wasn't a day off work.  I wanted it to be a full day off work but with an afternoon interview with the Manila Times, an evening business event, and about a dozen errands to do at the mall and printers for Empowered, I definitely got in a a few days worth of steps all in one day, today.

Nov. 12 -- Today, interview with the Manila Times.
Nov. 21 -- Next week, I'm one of the guest speakers at F* Up Nights.
Nov. 24 -- Launch of the Lil' Sistas Project extension at the Center of Hope.
Nov. 28 -- In two weeks, I'm one of the presenters at the VIA Startup Summit.

I'm always super busy and just when I think there's a break, something else comes up.

Tonight a good thing came up, a very good thing.  I made quite possibly the best connection tonight at the business event I attended.  I met a man whose wife runs a clothing factory.  PERFECT!!! She's exactly who I need to bring into my team to get the ball rolling with my Slay clothing line.  Am super excited to meet this lady who I've already labelled a lifesaver in my life.  Plan is to meet her either later this week or early next.
