Recently Diana Nyad swam for almost 53 hours straight to cover the 110-mile distance from Cuba to Key West Florida. That’s a remarkable feat. But what really makes it special is the fact that this is Diana’s fifth attempt at the distance and that she is 64 years old.

We all have our little reversals of fortune. But for many, these dips can quickly spiral downward into insurmountable debt. Don’t despair, darlings, I sat down with local bankruptcy expert Attorney Andrew Korduba to discuss common myths about the “b” word and how you can spiral upward again.
 
Myth #1: Filing for bankruptcy will ruin your credit.
“This is simply not true,” Andrew says. “Most often, filing for bankruptcy relief actually helps a person’s credit score improve during the first three years (and beyond with proper financial planning). The reason? After bankruptcy, you will have eliminated all unp ...
