Life Wasn't Always a Circus for PT Barnum, Who Had to File for Bankruptcy, Notes Tampa Bankruptcy Firm Clark & Washington

P.T. Barnum was a true show and business man, but he found himself in financial troubles frequently. So, Barnum was never deterred by these troubles and carried on, much like you can, with the help of Tampa bankruptcy firm, Clark & Washington.

    NORCROSS, GA, December 18, 2012 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Clark & Washington, a Tampa bankruptcy law firm, notes that even the greatest show on Earth may not always be successful, but the main man behind it knew how to rise from the ashes like a phoenix. P.T. Barnum made every situation, good and bad, work for him, and even after he declared bankruptcy; it still didn't stop the irrepressible Barnum.

Barnum was a man of opportunity, in that he saw an opportunity in everything. He created the Barnum and Bailey circus, which eventually joined with Ringling Brothers to create one of the most successful traveling circuses to date. A professional naysayer, he was determined to debunk many hoaxes. He also purchased Scudder's American Museum, and developed it into a profitable museum of oddities. Though he had successes, Barnum had many struggles, like loss of circus animals to accidents or the American Museum burning down twice, but the professional showman never saw it as anything but another opportunity to rise again, bigger and better.

Barnum was the consummate showman and businessman, and though there are many points of his life he spent in debt and bankruptcy, he always kept a clear head and worked toward a better financial situation. If you are facing bankruptcy, the Tampa bankruptcy lawyers at Clark & Washington can help rebuild your financial futures and get you started on a path to success. As Barnum proved, success is only an idea away, and the team at Clark & Washington can get you out from under your bankruptcy and to your new fresh start.
