This is Part Two of my interview with Col Collective founder Mike Cotty. In this episode, we discuss what it takes to film an episode, edit and produce it. We also talk about why quality matters and how he’s been able to leverage his body of work and relationships to gain sponsorships that essentially pay for him to travel the world and film the greatest cycling climbs. But there’s more to the story. He’s growing his business by adding small, private cycling camps out of his home base in Europe, with more opportunities beyond that. If you’re interested in the business side of things, or just want to see what it takes to launch your own successful YouTube channel, this episode is for you!
