Aames Eyes Career As Financial Adviser

Former child star WILLIE AAMES is plotting to launch a new career as a financial adviser, one year after declaring bankruptcy.
The Charles In Charge star became homeless for a brief period in 2008 after claiming debts over $350,000 (GBP218,750), and survived a suicide attempt while suffering a deep depression.
He explains, "I was sleeping in parks I was sleeping in parking garages."
But he insists his fortunes have changed and now the 49 year old is working to help others avoid financial pitfalls.
He adds, "It's not unusual for anyone who's been through traumatic experiences to be an advocate for other people so that you can help them stay out of that situation if possible... I was very good at making money (but) I didn't know how to hang on to it."
