Going Broke

Going broke is tough enough, and then friends – and even total strangers – want to tell you how run your life. That’s what happened to Meg T.

Meg T. graduated from law school, expecting to do fairly well in life. But she soon found herself thousands of dollars in debt – because of student loans, infrequent work and overspending. Meg eventually filed for bankruptcy. She knew there would be repercussions to her financial profile, but she didn’t anticipate the other effects.
