Throughout his professional career, Mike Kotch had the pleasure of being a guest on various platforms. In particular, he had the opportunity to appear on Inspirery and Ideamensch as of late as a guest star. On these entrepreneurial interview platforms, guests discuss their professional journey, a typical day in their life, tips and tricks to stay productive, and inspirational quotes that have personally impacted their lives. In addition, they often talk about where they obtained their business ideas and some advice they’d give to young entrepreneurs.

Eventually, he landed himself a position as a swim coach and passionately coached countless talented swimmers over several years.
