Businesses That Have Filed For Bankruptcy

February 9, 2018

Most people who are considering bankruptcy feel embarrassed, but one way to think about it differently is to consider the businesses who file bankruptcy.  Businesses are not embarrassed when they file for bankruptcy, so why should people have to feel that way?

 

Businesses file bankruptcy in order to start over and become profitable again. In my opinion people should file bankruptcy for exactly the same reason! 

 

Look through this list of hundreds of companies that have filed bankruptcy. There are many big names on the list, but they all have one thing in common with people who need to file personal bankruptcy - a need for a brighter future!
