Dire business situation worked out

A few years ago, my husband and I had one of our greatest personal challenges. My husband, a self-employed building contractor, decided to build and manage a business we knew virtually nothing about: a 26-lane bowling center. Our community was sorely in need of some positive family/recreational activities, and we thought this would help fill that need. My husband spent years investigating and researching the industry, and finally built and opened the center, much to the community’s delight. However, it proved to be a management and financial disaster for our partners and us.

We soon found ourselves in over our heads with financial obligations, difficult employee and customer relations, and strains within the relationships between our business partners. My husband worked 15 hours a day seven days a week for five years to maintain the integrity of the business. When he wasn’t working, he would often sit in despair. We feared foreclosure and bankruptcy.
