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.

Nothing to Prove... Thursday, September 26

"If you can justify your price point, then don't settle for less than your worth."

Probably one of the most valuable and applicable piece of entrepreneurial advice I ever got, something that really helped me set my own price point with my fighters at Empowered.

I have trained in 6 different countries, in over 20 boxing clubs.
I have fought in 6 different countries.
I have 17 years of boxing experience, over 9 years of boxing coach experience.
I first started boxing in Canada, with Egerton Marcus, Canadian silver medalist Olympian.
In Korea I created Flipside Fitness and it evolved into me launching my first physical training facility, Hulk's Boxing.
Hulk's Boxing evolved into Hulk's Club, a 11,000sqm boxing and MMA club.
Empowered Clubhouse is my third boxing business.
Empowered is the first and only female-only private boxing clubhouse in the Philippines. 

Today I had three female fighters from Team Insider come and see Empowered.  They came to train here too and to see how I am as a coach.  I'm definitely a lot stricter with them than they're used to.
