I have been bushwalking since I was a kid. I really love the outdoors and keeping in shape. It gets me out of the workplace and helps me eliminate the tension from the week. I have been pretty privileged in my career and landed a great job right out of Uni. I was making fantastic money and had all the trimmings: cars, boats and a nice property. Our firm was downsizing and got layed off. I thought it wouldn’t take long to find another job. After 6 months of looking I realized I couldn’t manage my debts any longer; I still didn’t have a job that paid anywhere near the money I was on, so my loan payments were more than my total earnings, and I was going backwards fast. One day a chap came to the door to take my car, as I didn’t realize I had missed 3 payments. That was a wakeup call. Not only that they sold the car but that I still owed $18,000 for a car I didn’t have. I then realized I had no option but to go bankrupt. I called Bankruptcy Experts Bendigo, they got onto my case right away and I found myself debt-free within the week. Now I get to keep all my salary and actually have a bit left over. Best thing I have ever done.
