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 🙂

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.


  1. Congrats again mate!
    I just got married myself a few months ago and now also expecting a little one by the end of August 🙂
    Crazy times!

    1. Thanks, Ralph. Wow, you work quickly 🙂 I think we’ll wait a little while…but you never know…

      1. Hey Mike… Forget about everything but that beautiful young lady! Go enjoy your new marriage this stuff will be here…

  2. Hey congrats Mike!

    I think people will understand about the “shortage” of interviews 🙂

    1. Dan…I hope so…I still felt guilty about missing two of them…workaholic 🙂

      1. Well Mike there is more to life, easpecially now. Just being provocative when i use the expression – “get a life” – now you obviously did, and i am thrilled for you both (been marreid44 years), please live it to the full
        & make room for you both and all aspects oflife. BE Happy.

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

  3. Congrats and best wishes to you and Tugba!

    you could interview Tugba or she could interview you for a laugh 🙂

  4. That is great news, congratulation from Spain Mike.

    My baby first birthday was this 17 and mine on 20 so this week have been a litle busy for the two of us, Good luck!!!

  5. Just want to wish you all the best!
    And Gefeliciteerd van Holland.
    Ik wens je het beste toe en hoop dat jullie nog vele jaren
    samen zullen!


  6. 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.

    1. Brian, it was a very international wedding 🙂

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

  7. 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.

    Best wishes

  8. Congratulations! As a fan I am always pulling for you on the entrepreneurial front but now I wish you the best on the personal side of things too. All the best in the future.

  9. Congratulations, … you’re excused for taking it easy this week… :).. Best wishes to both of you.. You’re a lucky guy, you can tell that not only is she beautiful but she has a kind hearted smile too!! 🙂

    1. I appreciate the permission, Jason 🙂 Yes, she’s a wonderful woman…she always makes sure that I publish a new interview every day.

      1. So I guess we should also thank her for helping to give us such great content through your interviews.

        That said: Thank you [insert wife’s name] 🙂

  10. dude.. you could have got dressed up 🙂

    I can’t believe you didn’t mention this during our interview… well done and good luck.. we’ve only been married for 29 years.. so can’t give you much advice!

  11. CONGRATULATION To Both Of You !
    Wish You All The Very Best! Lots of Fun and Cherish Life Together as life Time Partner!

  12. Way to go. Cheers to the beginning of another chapter in your journey. Wishing you and your wife many years of happiness.

  13. Congrats! Man! Many best wishes on the future!

    Heck, I have a hard time keeping up with all of your podcasts anyhow. I think I might have seen all of them this week.

    1. Quinton, yeah, you guys can use this as a chance to watch some that you’ve missed.

  14. Congratulations Mike! You went MIA a few days, and the next thing you got married! This is just so sudden and unexpected. How about…

    Next interview: How my wife made …

    Lol, may you two have a blissful marriage, which I’m sure you will!


    1. Thanks, Pradeep! I was in India for three months in 2008…it’s a beautiful country.

  16. Congrats Mike! We have some big news this week with the launch of the new site, but nothing like this. Here’s to many happy years to come.

  17. Congrats Mike, loving the hat by the way traditional head gear? Enjoy your honeymoon.

    1. Stuart, that was my wife’s idea. I had to go around with her to antique clothes shops to find all the stuff, but it was worth it in the end.

  18. Congrats Mike, you are a beautiful couple. I wish you both all the happiness you desire, and even more. 🙂

    1. Eddy…you wouldn’t possibly be from Maine with that “stunna” comment, would you? 🙂

      1. No Mike, unfortunately not, I’m from the south of England, near London. Maybe the folks from Maine use bad “gramma” to.

  19. congratulations and best wishes to the bride, wonderful times ahead for you both!

  20. Wow, congratulations Mike! We will all understand if you take a week off for your honeymoon! 🙂

    1. Thanks, Faheem. I’ve been so happy by all the kind words from you guys. I have an amazing audience!
