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 overnight, so checking early gives you the ability to build credit while you are developing your business.
Understanding Your Credit is a great opportunity to gain a better awareness of what your credit score means. We will run your credit report from two of the three credit bureaus and walk you through 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 have a better understanding of what factors affect your credit, why it matters, and how you can earn 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 how their hard work has paid off.
ELIGIBILITY: This seminar is currently only available to existing business owners with a business license that have a Seattle address.
Registration closes at midnight on Monday, October 21st.
