Jimmy Pardo, Jimmy Dore and I wrote and performed “The Golfers” back in the 1900s. It debuted in March 1996 as part of our Must-See Sketch Show (with Pat Francis and Jack Thomas) at The Complex in Hollywood. Watch as The Golfers impart wisdom on Personal Finance and technology.
Suggestions on how to avoid Bankruptcy: If it’s credit card debt that is killing you, see my post about 0% balance transfer credit cards to take a breather from paying high interest, while you regroup. If that doesn’t work for you, watch my Peer To Peer Lending post. Here’s another option: If you have a good job with disposable income, but all of that extra money is going to pay interest on your huge debt, do you know someone who is loaded? If so, they can only get about 1% to 2% on their money now. Assemble your bills and paystubs. Offer them 4% if they’ll play bank and give you a consolidation loan to pay off all your cards. They’ll want to know how quickly you can pay them back. If that is not an option, approach a bank for a consolidation loan.
