Business is about taking risks. Sometimes you win; sometimes you lose. The community wants people to associate together and take business risks; that is why states provide for the formation of corporations and other limited liability entities. Workers in groups can do big things. On the other hand, we don’t want a free-for-all when the chips are down. We don’t want a first to sue mentality in the business world. That is why we allow for business bankruptcies. There are two types – liquidation, where recovery is hopeless– and reorganization — where if we can maintain order, we might just recover from the downturn.
If your business in trouble, you should get advice from objective outsiders who can evaluate your chances more clearly that you might. If you are worn out, tired of the rat race and the headache of debt, you might give up too easily. On the other hand, if you are married to your business and clinging desperately when you should let go, you may just be wasting time and energy? Call some of the attorneys and advisors listed in these posts for an objective opinion about your situation! Take back control of your life and have peace of mind!
