3 Famous People Who Bounced Back After Bankruptcy, Dothan, Alabama

Whether you have big business goals in mind or are just trying to get by, stabilizing your finances can really take you to task. And when you have to file for bankruptcy, you may feel as though success will never be in your future. Luckily, the expert attorneys at The Gil Law Firm are available to provide you with the advice and support you need to get back on your feet. This Dothan, AL, based firm has the skills and experience necessary to consolidate your debt and help you get to where you want to be.

To give you an idea of how much you can accomplish even after filing for bankruptcy, here are three well-known names who found success after financial failure:

  • Walt Disney: Yes, the mastermind behind some of the most recognizable and lucrative animations in history once experienced serious financial struggles. In fact, his first attempt to build an animation company from the ground up went sour when his financial backers filed for bankruptcy. 
  • Henry Ford: Before he became an automobile visionary, Henry Ford made a huge blunder after founding his first car company. Focusing more on product development than on marketing, Ford failed to make any profit from his inventions and was forced to leave the company and file for bankruptcy. 
  • Abraham Lincoln: Believe it or not, the 16th president of The United States actually filed for bankruptcy several times. His first brush with financial trouble happened in 1833 when his business failed to gain traction in a tough economy. Due to mounting debt, Lincoln was forced to sell his share of the business and then later pay a hefty fine when his business partner passed away. With no bankruptcy laws to protect him, Lincoln was sued for the rest of his assets.
