In September of 1977, these two non-drinkers met at their university sponsored Booze Cruise as it floated around the Boston Harbor. An otherwise bookwormish Maura brought her guitar aboard and was harmonizing tunes from James Taylor and Carole King when a common friend introduced her to the polite co-captain of the university basketball team.
Now, nearly four decades later, this Florida couple has embarked upon their third entrepreneurial endeavor. They've raised a daughter, opened and exited a thriving computer firm and are now enjoying lifestyle careers following their passions while positively impacting culture with their own personal brands. What you don't know about this enduring couple is that Jim and Maura Sweeney's 1981 wedding couldn't be announced to the public, as Jim Sweeney was preparing to testify against the mob in one of the most publicized collegiate gambling scandals of our era.
