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.

Not Intimidated, just Annoyed... Thursday, September 5

I was asked the day off the event to go to an event tonight -- a gym's grand opening.

I won't go into the details of my opinion here but will say although I did have plans tonight, a previous day's plans that I had to change to tonight actually, I refrained from attending the event because I felt it was a conflict of interest... a "conflict of interest", yes, most definitely.

I suspect the random messages from people are going to continue into the weekend.

I appreciate everyone's concerns and them looking out for me but it's really not necessary.  For me to feel threatened by the use of a similar name would mean I'd have to discredit my own value.  I don't know their business model or even why they called it why they did, but I know why I called my business what I did.  It took me well over 35 years to finally get to the point in my life where I could take ownership of it and really become me, more of me.  

I am empowered and I am Empowered.

Those who know me and know parts of my story, know it all to be so bang on true.

I'm not hating on this other place but I'm just not participating either.

I wish them good luck and those that know me know how I feel about good luck.  I wish them it.
