What happens when you’re unwilling to let go of a lifestyle you’re no longer able to afford? Bill Thompson grew up in a well-to-do family. He was accustomed to having money or always getting everything he wanted. As an adult, Thompson became a commodities trader, and with his family bought a home on Chicago’s North Shore. But at the age of 35 he lost his job. Eventually bills couldn’t be paid. The bank was threatening to foreclose on his house, and it created tensions at home. Then things started unraveling, and Thompson, well, tried to make ends meet.
