How is MC Hammer and Walt Disney related?


by Jameel Murray

Although many people believe that celebrities are rich and full of money, there are fair shares of celebrities who have filed for bankruptcy. Besides the recent news of Nicholas Cage and NBA star Antoine Walker, the public is oblivious to famous people who have filed for bankruptcy. One celebrity who should be the poster boy for bankruptcy is Mc Hammer. In 1996, Hammer owed $10 million to creditors and filed for bankruptcy. Since his bankruptcy claim, Hammer has become an entrepreneur in an attempt to reclaim success. Another bankruptcy that people never can recall was the bankruptcy of Walt Disney. In 1921, Disney began a company called laugh-o-gram, which would eventually cause him to file for bankruptcy. After his bankruptcy, Disney moved to Hollywood and became the most celebrated animator ever. Although bankruptcy can be a financial standstill in one’s life, it also teaches to be more careful with finances and can inspire one to pursue great ventures such as Walt Disney and MC Hammer.

  2. Chapter 7 Bankruptcy gives you the right to eliminate most of the common types of unsecured debts, like credit card debt, medical bills, bank loans, finance company loans and credit union loans.

  3. The funny thing is that bankruptcy and non-bankruptcy debt relief programs have about the same effect on one's credit score and on one's outlook toward money management. For the most part, bankruptcy is a solution when all else fails to solve the problem. But it is a viable solution for unmanageable debt and debt relief that must be considered seriously.

  4. I was wondering if you ever thought of changing the page layout of your site?
    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.

    But maybe you could a little more in the way of
    content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or
    two pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?

  12. This kind of language schools are aimed to keep your children
    learning about new languages as well as cultures. But be sure to have the old
    removed first; otherwise the new will not come into play. The
    videos relax, they make people smile and as they say, laughter is the best
    medicine.

    - Box Case. If you are a brand conscious person and wants to buy that laptop that reflects status
    and class, then going for apple brand is the best
    option. You can also watch movies that you've downloaded or play one of many games that are available for the Mac such as The Sims 3.
