My apologies for only 3 interviews this week…but I just got married!

Just Married!

I’m usually very strict about my publishing schedule: 5 interviews per week, plus an occasional post on the weekends. However, this week I was only able to produce 3 interviews, but I think getting married is a pretty good excuse πŸ™‚

I’d like to introduce you all to my beautiful wife, Tugba Thomas. We got married on Monday in a traditional Turkish ceremony at a special marriage hall. The ceremony was short and sweet with most of the guests being her friends, but I had a few Turkish and Australian friends come wish us luck.

Back to the schedule

I’ll be back to the normal schedule next week with 5 new interviews. Also be on the look out for a new income report in the coming days. I appreciate everything you all do to support me! Thanks! Always feel free to contact me if you need help with anything.

    Thanks, Towhid. We won’t be able to have a honeymoon until next year due to time constraints, but it’s worth the wait.

Mike, congrats on getting married! Maine, Turkey, and Austrailia represented…that’s an international affair right there.

I know it’s difficult to turn off the entrepreneurial workaholic-ism (I have the same problem)…but a wedding certainly qualifies, along with the honeymoon. Enjoy the break, we’re still here.

    Mike From Maine - March 23, 2013

    Brian, it was a very international wedding πŸ™‚

    It really is hard to turn off the entrepreneurial bug in my ear. I’ll be back on Monday.

Hey Congratulations Mike to you and your lovely bride.

I think getting married is a decent excuse for slacking off for a day or two eh?

Hope you both will be very happy together.
