Your credit matters. Whether you need financing when you launch your business or you hope to expand it in the future, chances are that you will need to have a good credit score. If you’re not sure what your score is that’s a good sign that you should check and we can help.
The sooner you know the better. Better credit doesn’t happen over night, so checking early gives you the ability to build credit while you are developing your business.
Understand Your Credit is a great opportunity to get a better understanding of what your credit score means. We will run your credit report from two of the three credit bureaus and walk you thru the different components of the report. With your report in hand you can identify what is good and what could be improved. At the end of this seminar you will understand what affects your credit, why it matters, and how you can get the score you want.
Building your credit takes time so participants will be allowed to request a free second credit report one year after completing the seminar so they can see their hard work pay off.
