What caused the difficulties is that I had a pretty booming business that I sold in January of 2003. After working 60-80 hours a week and then selling my business, I found I had nothing to do. I actually went into a bit of a depression and didn’t really care a whole lot about much of anything. We had gone through a lot of the money that we got from selling the business.
Before Hiring Michael Mack, Jim Got Scammed by a Tax Resolution Company
Like a lot of people, you pay them so many thousands of dollars and they tell you what you want to hear. But in the end, they ultimately don’t really do a lot for you. When I talked with Mike, he was very concise and clear on what he was going to do. He asked a lot of questions and was very understanding. After he told me he could help me, he laid out a plan of attack and basically followed through with it step by step. Mike is very good at what he does.
Working with Mike has helped a lot because he is finally somebody who does what he says he is going to do and doesn’t just tell you what you want to hear. Our financial situation has changed and improved because it has freed me up to venture into some other businesses that have done pretty well and are doing well.
What I would tell people who have similar problems—or maybe, in some cases, worse problems—is that don’t let fear cripple you. A lot of times people get themselves into such a situation, and they are so afraid and hopeless that they don’t do anything. By not doing anything, the situation just gets worse and, ultimately, you wind up in a situation where you lose a lot of control or the rights that you may have had if you would have acted sooner. So don’t let the fear and worry cripple you. Take action. Call Mike. Tell him your problem, and let him figure a solution for you. It’s a lot better than sitting and living in fear wondering what’s going to happen.
