It seems everyone has a woe story about the 2008 crash and my husband Mike and I are no exception. We had a successful real estate business in a small rural town in northeast Washington…but when two of our agents decided to jump ship and go with the new guy on the block, we decided the time was best for closing up shop.
I stayed in real estate and did well under the circumstances. Mike became a catastrophe insurance adjuster. However, no matter how hard we worked, we could never seem to get ahead of the debt left over . . .
