• Sharing the Wisdom —
guest Josh Meyer, Lincoln-Goldfinch Law firm
told us about the three bankruptcy options (7, 11, and 13), when to use which one, and what to do next.
He also suggested we change our attitude with this quote from the Supreme Court in 1934:
"[Bankruptcy] gives to the honest, but unfortunate deader a new opportunity in life and a Clearfield, for your effort unhampered by the pressure and discouragement, a preexisting debt."
Here's something else to think about: Did you know that bankruptcy helped build America? It certainly played a key role in the early days of Texas. Ups and downs are what happens in personal and business life. You will want to hear and read what Josh had to say specifically that's applicable to your business or the businesses of others you work with or sell to. Creditor discussion was very enlightening.
