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.

Today's Heroes... Wednesday, May 8

I'm convinced the workers at At Home, the massive department store at the mall, are my new bff's.  I'm joking but not really.  I've gone there three days in a row now with last night me purchasing that white metal shelf unit and today me returning there to ask if they can come make it for me.

Mission accomplished -- got them to come to my house to make the shelf!

I asked them how much they'd charge for building my shelf unit and they said it was up to me so I made an offer but said it came with an exception.  The exception being they had to figure out a way to get the massive rug that I just bought from their store to my home.  

"No problem", they said.  Thirty minutes later they showed up on a scooter with that rug standing vertically between the two workers.  In less than thirty minutes they had that shelf unit made and it looked great.  Honestly, they were the sweetest workers e-v-e-r, using their lunch hour to come to my house and help me out as such.  Much appreciated.
