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 Correlation, Perhaps... Friday, April 19

It's Holy Week and yesterday started the four day weekend.  I promised Skittles I wouldn't do work but we all know that's a lie.  I did however promise that I'd "relax" and hang out poolside, and that's exactly what I did today.

Poolside for a couple of hours.

I couldn't really work even if I wanted to though.  Most of the businesses I do business with are closed, workers aren't replying to any business related email, call or text.  So I was limited to only doing business with those suppliers and businesses I deal with outside of the Philippines border and any freelance/entrepreneur. 

I've come to the conclusion that holidays are for those who hate their job or need some kind of break from their job.   So ya, basically anyone not happy with their employment.  Maybe that's mean of me to say, maybe it's the honest truth.  So ask yourself,  if you love holidays, do you also love your job?
