Isn’t bankruptcy the worst thing that can happen to you?
I always thought so, but to be honest, it’s the best thing ever!
Life was pretty good.
My business was running well, not excellent, but well.
I had a lot of free time.
Debts were almost paid of etc etc.
I had nothing to complain, but still I did.
It just was not enough.
Not having enough was the drive to expend my business. You might thinks that that is a good thing.
It is, but not if you are not financially strong and the risk is to big.
I thought that if I bought another restaurant would bring me good fortune and that all my financial worries would be over.
There are only so many hours in a day. I could only be at one place at a time. It was horrible, I was only working and working and working.
My other businesses, I build with my own hands. The last one? was already there, I just cleaned it. But later I figured out that everything was all broken. So a lot more money was needed.
There wasn’t a bank to help me, they refused.
After seven long months I was able to get rid of the place. I turned in the keys and that was that?
No, it had cost me over $140.000 and personally I was a wreck.
I couldn’t call in sick, because I didn’t pick up the phone….
Even though Het Heden went really well, it was not enough to deal with those debts.
At the end of 2013 and in the beginning on 2014 I was talking to social services to see if there was something left to do.
Hitting rock bottom was the best thing ever. It got me going again!
Hitting rock bottom gave us the drive to look further, to look for other options.
There was a family to provide for!
Het Heden survived because of two generous people who borrowed me money.
Next to that I started to look for opportunities online, because I saw other people around me having success doing business online.
I was looking for a business opportunity that:
was easy to do
had no or little investment needed
was not about three way calls en doing home meetings ( My brother tried to trick me for something like that and only the idea horrified me)
I could be passionate about.
And it should be something that I could started right away and combine with my daily tasks like saving a restaurant…
I started blogging.
I started to cash in on my passion.
My wife Muriël joint me and now we are cashing together.
How? check this link.
This is how I got started… I bought the trial
and never gave up.
Now a year later business is booming! online and offline.
I grew as a person and I am still learning every day.
So many things can happen in a year.
Don’t give up….ever
This post is not to brag, but the press upon you that bankruptcy is not the end of the world.
I strongly believe that everything is for a reason and that in the end good will come of it.
Everything comes and everything goes…..Anicha
