Most people, if not all, fear bankruptcy. This is specifically true for business persons, especially those who are new in business or had never experienced bankruptcy yet. Entrepreneurs who experienced bankruptcy a lot (sometimes recovered, sometimes failed to) are more resilient to this situation because they already know the ins and outs – as well as the sleepless nights and emotional distress that comes with it.
If you’re new to bankruptcy, or if it’s your first time going down on such, these are some of the questions you probably asked yourself:
- What will happen to (my) properties?
- Can certain assets be protected?
- Is there a minimum debt requirement?
- Which type of bankruptcy should be filed?
- How will the credit score be affected?
Of course, these questions play in your mind because you want to simulate what could happen, all out of worry and fear.
You don’t need to worry and fear much, though – though we know that bankruptcy is really a terrifying thing! But one thing we can assure you: you’ll most likely recover from a bankruptcy (even if you lose to it). Whether you win over your business or lose them out of debt, you can always pick yourself up and start over again.
If you doubt us, you can simply read stories of entrepreneurs who survived it; sometimes, they too lose their business(es) and assets from one of their bankruptcy cases. Yet they recovered!
