Episode 13 - Michael Klim


“For me it all comes down to finding the purpose. What is your purpose? Whatever it may be, an event, sport, business, if you have that purpose it creates passion and if you have passion you can do anything. The other things will flow off it and then you can build a team, whatever it is, it starts with finding your purpose”

My special guest is Michael Klim. Michael is a legend of the swimming pool having competed in 3 Olympics which included 2 gold medals, 3 silvers and a bronze. He was a world champion and world record holder and has now continued with an impressive transition into the entrepreneurial world with his highly successful Milk & Co amongst a host of accomplishments since leaving the pool.

You will learn plenty from Michael Klim in episode 13 of the Talking with TK Podcast.
