It’s okay to share your personal life in the business world. It gives people something to relate to. Picking the appropriate times for these discussions is the key.
I believe it’s appropriate for me to share my engagement. Choosing to get married is a risk, just like anything else. However, I know that spending time with Nichole has been the most uplifting experience in my life. She inspires me every day and encourages me to follow through with my business ideas. With her love and support, I have went from looking for a job to working full time on my business and even creating part time work for people in Bloomington, Indiana. As I have mentioned, it’s vital to surround yourself with people who truly want you to succeed. Nichole has always believed in me and knew I would start to see some success even when things were slow. I have been so fortunate to have her in my life.
Since Nichole has been an Indianapolis Colts fan her whole life, I thought it would be nice to take her on a private tour of Lucas Oil Stadium. In the middle of the tour, I asked her to marry me. Luckily, she said yes! I couldn’t have pulled it off without my sister Carrie and brother-in-law Vince. They went out of their way to help me arrange everything and to ensure Nichole was truly surprised…I will forever be grateful for that. Thank you to my wonderful family and friends for all of the love and support.
