When people in Melbourne ask me about Going Bankrupt, I let them know the simple Native American Fable of the little boy and the Rattlesnake. An old rattlesnake asks a passing young boy to carry him to the mountain top to see one last sunset before he passes away. The boy was reluctant, but the rattlesnake pledged not to bite him in exchange for the ride. They travelled together only for the snake to ultimately attack the boy despite his vow not to do so. The snake’s reply was ‘You knew what I was when you picked me up.’
Obtaining the right financial advice in Melbourne when it concerns Going Bankrupt is a whole lot like that little boy’s journey, fraught with risk and danger, and typically skewed for the benefit of the person providing the advice. In most cases you’ll get bitten except if you know what you’ve picked up before you move forward (avoid the rattlesnakes). I discovered the problem with obtaining financial advice as a teenager, and it has been key to Going Bankrupt. I’d been keeping my nose to the grindstone for a few years, and saved up a little bit of money I wanted to invest. It was the early 1980s so interest rates were rather high and investing your money was really profitable. I spent a few years researching varied investment options, and I went to visit a few financial advisors. It was crystal clear that they had more money than I did: they had great suits and plush offices; they all appeared to exude confidence and have all the answers. What hit me was that they all had a really different idea of what I should do. This puzzled me so much that it put me off the whole idea of opting for any of them.
I’m sure currently you have read enough on the internet to be totally puzzled about Going Bankrupt and exactly what to do. It would most likely be easier for me to help you learn about the nature of the financial snakes you may be grasping while you are trying to get to the bottom of your financial troubles in Melbourne. In essence, you need to try and understand what your overarching alternatives are, do your very own research into where to proceed with your plan for Going Bankrupt and then approach what you feel is best in Melbourne for your needs. Basically, you have 3 options for whom to turn to.
The first option is a Solicitor – This may look like the go-to choice when you appear to be in trouble. But there certainly is only so much help they can give on this matter. There are definitely specialist legal advisors in bankruptcy, but their expertise includes a hefty price.
Another possibility you may consider is your accountant – they are incredibly helpful and vital to the process of operating your business, but for the most part, when you are considering Going Bankrupt, your accountant won’t be much help to you anymore.
Your best option? A Financial Counsellor that can talk about debt consolidation, personal insolvency agreements, and virtually all you have to figure out when it comes to Going Bankrupt.
