@Aaron- the actual spreadsheet would be helpful! Hopefully we can get.

don’t think that filing Chapter 11 as a company will get an individual out of a Personal Guarantee.

Pretty somber and disheartening to listen to something that seem to becoming more of a reality for many of us
Kevin Creighton
53:32
Donald Trump filed for bankruptcy before
nancy Citti
53:43
3 times
Kevin Creighton
54:20
he didn’t make the rules, just following them
nancy Citti
56:33
He would build buildings, casinos, golf course, etc, and not pay the subcontractors by filing. Has been doing this for years. This is completely different than one of our businesses.
Dan Newby
58:48
it so.the lender can and will sue the individual to collect the difference of the loan and the Chapter 11 plan payout,
Dan Newby
01:01:05
talk to a business bankruptcy attorney before moving on this. the personal guarantee we sign is a civil instrument and the lenders can and will sue the. individual to attach assets

An interesting twist from the banks... ours is now holding on to all deposits for up to 2 weeks before making our money available to us. They want to make sure the checks clear before they allow us to spend the money. Changes the way we manage payables, and disrupts cashflow even more.
Antonio Thomas
01:06:45
