Tom Monaghan -Description
Tom Monaghan had many adversities, but the main adversity that he had was when he was responsible for $75,000 in debt. Tom first started out his business with his brother, Jim. Jim had a job at the post office, so he didn't have much time to devote to the business, so Tom had to find another partner. The partnership quickly fell when he wouldn't pay the $500. His partner later landed in the hospital and asked to dissolve the partnership. After it was dissolved, his ex-partner declared bankruptcy, and was responsible for $75,000 in debt. This describes one of Tom Monaghan’s biggest and worst adversity.
