In this week's episode of the Crushing Debt Podcast, I interview bankruptcy lawyer, consumer advocate, and founder of Collateral Bankruptcy Services, Ian Leavengood.

Collateral Bankruptcy Services (CBS) helps borrowers return their secured vehicles to the creditor.  In today's episode, we talk about:

  • What CBS is and how it started.
  • Who CBS helps, and when.
  • What a 521 letter is and why its relevant.
  • When does CBS help and when is it appropriate to contact them.
  • How much their services cost the consumer (spoiler - $0).
  • What CBS pays to people that refer clients to them (spoiler - again $0).
  • What happens after CBS takes possession of a vehicle.
  • What is a zombie car.
  • Changes and trends since CBS has been assisting borrowers in collection and repossession of their vehicles.

If you want to return your car, truck, RV, boat, motorcycle, jetski, 4-wheeler, etc., you can reach Ian at Ian@CollateralBankruptcyServices.com or their office manager Ashley at Ashley@CollateralBankruptcyServices.com

In these uncertain economic times, if you know someone who wants to return their vehicle to the creditor, but their creditor is being unresponsive, please share this episode with them! Contact me at Shawn@YesnerLaw.com or www.YesnerLaw.com.

Professional and collegiate sports have been cancelled, foreign travel is suspended, schools are closed, conferences are cancelled, the markets are in a state of shock.  While we all self-quarantine, force-quarantine, and practice "social distancing" I thought I would string together some interviews to discuss the impact of COVID-19, or the Coronavirus, on the economy.  Thank you all who provided your input, or a sound-bite, and in today's episode of the Crushing Debt Podcast, you'll hear from:

What is the impact of the economy on you? Please comment or send me an email at Shawn@YesnerLaw.com, and if you or your business are in trouble because of the slow-down, we can help you.

In this week’s episode of the Crushing Debt Podcast, I discuss bankruptcy code sections 362(b)(22) and 362(l).

Why are these sections important? They describe the landlord’s rights when a tenant files bankruptcy. The landlord’s next step after the tenant files eviction is going to be determined by: (a) whether the landlord has a judgment for possession, and (b) what the tenant represents to the Court in the bankruptcy schedules.

Plus, we need to know whether the debtor filed Chapter 7, Liquidation, or Chapter 13, Reorganization.

Plus, should the landlord file a Proof of Claim (and what is that)? Should the landlord seek a “Comfort Order” (and what is that)?

I discuss all of that in this week’s episode of the show.

Please remember to give our sponsor a look - Attorneys First Insurance at www.AttorneysFirst.com.

If you have questions for me, please email me at Shawn@YesnerLaw.com or www.YesnerLaw.com. And it would be a great help to me if you would share this week’s show with a landlord that you know.

Fresh off the heals of Podfest 2020, and Episode 208 (Top 10 things to Generate Referrals from a Conference), one suggestion to grow the show was to create bonus episodes. I'm not going to do these very often, probably when I have a non-legal topic (like today).

To refresh:

  1. Goals- had two of them and accomplished both. 
  2. Tools - my shirts, stickers, books, and business cards.
  3. Never Eat Alone - I never did.
  4. Party After the Party - made some great connections outside of the conference sessions.
  5. Conference App - definitely used and engaged with this tool to increase my visibility at the conference.
  6. Tag Team Networking - thank you to my partner, Madison Thayer
  7. Visit Vendors - did this, got some cool SWAG
  8. Hobbies - created and ran in the Podfest Meetup Run Club 5k
  9. Schedule a Meeting from the Meeting - I have a ton of podcast interviews coming up in the future.
  10. Break Out of Your Comfort Zone - Podfest Jam Bank was AMAZING!
  11. Bonus - I spoke for the third year in a row, with ideas for Podfest 2021.

Bonus Content links: 

Thank all.  Please let me know if you want more bonus content. If you enjoy the episode, I would appreciate if you would ask one other person to listen.

Welcome to the last show of year four of content for The Crushing Debt Podcast! Like last year’s episode at around this same time, as you listen to this show (if you listen on the day of release) I’ll be on my way to Orlando for Podfest Multimedia Expo 2020. This will be my fourth year attending and my third year speaking!

In this episode, I provide my top ten (plus one bonus) tips on how to generate referrals when you attend a trade show or conference, including:

  1. Goals - set, strategize and share
  2. Bring Your Networking Tools
  3. Never Eat Alone
  4. Party After the Party
  5. Conference App
  6. Network with Friends (Tag-Team Networking)
  7. Visit Vendors
  8. Incorporate Hobbies
  9. Schedule a Meeting from a Meeting
  10. Break Out of Your Comfort Zone

There is a bonus strategy in there, but you’ll have to listen to hear it.

What else do you do to generate referrals from a conference or tradeshow? Please share your ideas. And speaking of sharing, if you found this content useful, please share it with your friends and encourage them to subscribe to the show.

Thank you to our sponsor - Attorneys First Insurance. If you are an attorney or title company, please visit them at www.AttorneysFirst.com.
