In its "Ten Things" column this month, SmartMoney Magazine explores "Ten Things Bankruptcy Court Won't Tell You." Included on the list compiled by author Elizabeth O'Brien are: "this could actually improve your credit score down the road" (#4); "debt-settlement firms may do more harm than good" (#5); "better save up before you file" (#7); and "just because your bills stop coming doesn't mean you shouldn't pay them" (#8). For the full list with accompanying commentary, click here.
And if the topic of bankruptcy holds no interest for you (shame!), then perhaps this article from the same issue will: Ten Ways to Make Your Boss Love You. Assume, for the moment, that you're asked to write a related article, entitled "Ten Ways to Put A Smile On Your Dean's Face." What's on the list?
