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.

Juggling Texts is My Thang... Friday, September 13

You know when you watch a little kid run, sometimes they run so fast their legs can't keep up with their body.  Their body goes forward, their legs struggle to keep up, and ultimately what happens is they last for maybe a few more steps and then they crash.

I feel like these days I'm that little kid.  Running fast but my legs just can't keep up.

I'm waiting for the crash.

I juggled business dealings and business conversations with 21 people in 8 different countries.

  1. Canada
  2. Korea
  3. Pakistan
  4. The Philippines
  5. The States
  6. Honk Kong 
  7. China
  8. France
From suppliers to sponsors, manufacturers to clients, I juggled numerous conversations at once.

Dear People of the Universe, don't call me.  On any given day I'm juggling at least a few conversations in various countries so I can't and I won't take your call.  


I feel like at this point in the game, I can't.  Phone conversations straw into casual conversations, with rambling about this and that, and quite honestly I don't have the time nor the undivided focus to entertain such a conversation.  I can however handle numerous conversations via text.  Text messages are to the point.  No business contacting me via text rambles on about the weather or asks what I'm up to.  No, hell no.  Texts are to the point.  

I am a text message junkie but a vegan phone conversationalist.
