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.

And the Winners Are... Saturday, April 27

Earlier this week I launched a Free Food Promo with the Six Pack Chef.  They offered me a one week food delivery subscription to one of my Instagram followers and the only thing I had to do was figure out a way to pick a winner.  And that's what I did.

I posted the rules on Instagram, the Empowered Clubhouse website and Facebook pages, and then I watched in shock at just how many ladies jumped in on it and tagged their gal pals.

452 ladies tagged via 47 ladies who participated... wow!!!

Next on my to-do-list for this promo was figuring out how to do a legit and fair draw.

The solution, a prize winner draw phone app.

Great, that solved that problem but how will those involved know it's fair?! Exactly, and hence my next problem.  

My solution, download another app but this one that films my phone screen so I can show everyone what's going on and what would be going on would be me using the prize winner draw phone app to pick the winners.

There was surprisingly enough, a lot of work that went into executing this promo, not only with downloading the apps but then having to enter in all 47 participants' names, their numbers, and then of course contacting all four winners.  

Was it worth it though?  Hell yeah. 

Promo events, definitely something I'll use again for Empowered.  Not only did I get a huge response and generate a lot of extra followers for my personal Instagram page but also Empowered's page, but it was a lot of fun to see how many got competitive and chatted amongst each other on the pages.
