No. of Recommendations: 1
After ten years of trying ot avoid Hell (BK), I had to take the plunge. The reasons don't matter, but it was inevitable. The matter was discharged in June. Now I am working to rebuild. First, no credit cards or loans of any kind - except:

Student Loans

These two add up to about $250,000 in debts. On top of that, I have two children in college with tuition to pay. On top of that, I am in my 50's with no retirement fund.

Okay all of you caring, smart people - I have about 15 years to put all of this right, keep my business going, and not work myself to death doing it. I do not have time to investigate the market on my own, so what about an aggresive mutual?

ANy and all suggestions are greatly appreciated.
