His business resume also includes a 14 year stint owning and operating three full service restaurants, six years managing a BMC Millwork operation with billings in excess of $40 million, and prior to opening SwimLabs worked as a franchise broker.

You sound Fantastic, but I am writing a book on swim coaching and I am not sure I want to share any of my ideas before the book comes out later this year.

I have coached swimmers that have won more than one gold medal in the Olympics for the USA!
