Credit score • A FICO (Fair Isaac Company) score is an evaluation of a person’s ability to repay debt • It is a number between 300 and 850 • A higher number is a better credit score • Indicator of a person’s ability to pay back a loan • A lower score may increase the interest rates a consumer pays or they may not receive credit • The creditor has a greater risk that the individual may not pay back the money they loaned Seguin - Debt 2011

  18. Millionaires file BK? • There are many ways that the millionaire mind is different from the average persons. It is through this thought process that true greatness is achieved. For starters, quitting or complete failures are simply not options they entertain.Ask any millionaire what they would do should they go bankrupt, most will tell you it does not matter because they will be right back on top in no time at all. In fact, most if not, all millionaires have filed bankruptcy at least once in their adult lives. Seguin - Debt 2011

  19. Is BK a good choice? • What hope do we have for our future? • Demand better for yourself. Seguin - Debt 2011

  20. Moral obligation • If a business or individual goes through bankruptcy successfully, many of their debts are legally discharged. Creditors no longer have any legal right to collect on those debts. However, the moral obligation to pay those debts remains. This might seem inconsequential -- if the law says the debt is forgiven, why would anyone pay it?There are certainly situations in individual bankruptcies where the moral obligation is important. If your parents loaned you money, you would probably feel a responsibility to pay them back, even if your parents "discharged" the debt. It can be even more important for business owners. If a business goes through Chapter 11, it would probably want to make some good faith payments toward debts if they ever wanted to use the same suppliers once the reorganization is complete.
