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.

Graduation Day for Us Startups

Today was the big day of the VIA Startup Summit
... aka, my graduation from my 6 month incubation period with Space for Ingenious.
I think the coolest thing today was meeting the boss babe behind Angkas and then being asked to do a media interview.  Turns out I actually know her, Angie, "The Angkas Lady".  She's the gorgeous wife of my friend's business partner.  Apparently I met her over a year ago but today I freaked out when I found out she was the one who created Angkas.  In my excitement, after all I am a HUGE fan of Angkas, I laughed and blurted out "I love you" to her.  Oh gosh, it was so funny.  I do love her though for creating Angkas.  It's made my life so easier to get around.  No more walking 60kms a week!!! 
I gave my speech today though it wasn't exactly a minute.
And then after several other speakers and many hours later, I was called up again for my certificate.
Viola... I can't believe it's been 6 months already!!!
