Listen on

Episode notes

We head to Bali to chat to Aussie swimming legend Michael Klim. (virtually of course ๐Ÿ™„...still need to find that โœˆ๏ธpartner ๐Ÿ˜‚)

After a stellar career including 21 world records, multiple FINA World Champs and Olympic gold, Michael has set himself up with his business Milk & Co.

Today we discuss how swimming was the sanctuary for a young Michael Klim, his career in the pool, the highs and lows and how he was forced to innovate on the run to achieve the ultimate success. We get an insiders perspective on what was a dominant Aussie swim team and learn who his greatest rival was.

We explore the challenges and triumphs of Milk & Co, what traits Michael took from life as an athlete into business and how his priorities have changed over time.

Enjoy the chat. ๐ŸŠ๐Ÿปโ€โ™‚๏ธ๐Ÿงด๐Ÿฅ‡
