I apologize if I'm posting in the wrong area or if I shouldn't be posting this at all. I try to contribute ideas when I can and don't want to be one of those people that only take and don't give but I figured where else better to ask for advise then in this Awesome forum filled with Intelligent people. So here goes... My father is 57 years old and has been a Chef his whole life, he opened a few restaurants in the Mid-West and they failed b/c he specializes in Italian and they just weren't into that out there. So last April of 2008, he opened a small eatery in Huntington Station, NY (Long Island). It's not his style at all but it was all he could afford. This place is more of a take out place and was a BBQ joint before, he made it into a fancy little italian/american/seafod/continental eatery, I mean the menu is huge. You can see for yourself at myspace*com/jerichogrill. So I know that it takes more than a year to have a steady customer base but we just don't have that kind of time. This place is right on a busy road but pushed back to where it's barely seen. But be that as it may, the rest of the stores in the shopping center do pretty well and he put banners and signs on the sidewalk so people know that it exists. He has tried all kinds of advertising and marketing, my brothers and I even handed out flyers, coupons and free food. My father is a GREAT cook and everyone loves his food, he does have repeat customers but just not enough. Anyway, he is now about $150,000 in debt and it's only getting worse. He is talking to a bankruptcy lawyer tomorrow and we have an appointment with our local SCORE next week to discuss all options. My question is should my dad put the house in my name before claiming bankruptcy or is he safe because he has a corporation? And should he even contemplate bankruptcy? He's been trying to sell the business, we are now selling it for $35,000 and the rent is like $2,000/mo and the lease if for like 5 years with option to extend. The bills aren't bad but we have to keep up the house too, that's what makes it difficult. My mom & I are working and doing what we can, my 1 brother is on unemployment which is a joke and my other brother is a full time student so it's getting pretty bad. Sorry for rambling but I just wanted to get some advice and/or suggestions from you black hatters as I think you guys are some of the smartest and most clever bunch of people I've ever talked too. Some of the things I read in this forum just blow my mind. I'm not looking for handouts or sympathy, I work full time and as I stated in my recent post, I am constantly utilizing black hat to make more money... I am just looking for input. So thank you for your time and I appreciate any feedback. As always, BlackHatWorld friggggggggin Rulezzzzzzzz!!
