I learned the hard way that running a business is not easy. When I started my first business, which was a restaurant, I thought it would be the best restaurant in town. I had a lot of success in the beginning, but over time, the money stopped flowing in, and I barely had any customers. I became buried in debt and eventually I had to shut the restaurant down. I was left with virtually nothing and had to file for bankruptcy, which I did using a Sacramento bankruptcy lawyer and some funds that I had stashed away for emergency situations.

After acquiring the title of bankrupt and having my restaurant taken from me, I was a broken man. I didn’t know what to do and had little desire to continue on. I didn’t think about suicide, but I was pretty depressed for a while. I was during this time that I met a woman who would later become my wife. She helped me get out of my depression and with her encouragement, I was able to get a job and earn enough money to open a second restaurant.

I learned from the mistakes of my first restaurant and used my experience to keep my second restaurant full of customers. I’ve become debt free and I’m no longer bankrupt. The best thing about my situation is that I met my wife. If it weren’t for her, I would probably still be sitting at home, moping around, worried about all the money I owed. Even worse, I would probably be homeless. I do have to give some thanks to the bankruptcy attorney as well, because without him, the debt collectors would have really been on my back to get the money. They might have even tried to take my home and belongings from me.
