Let’s Talk About Credit
A good credit score saves you money by opening the door to cheaper loans, better credit card offers, and greater job and housing opportunities. Fortunately, a credit score doesn’t depend on how much money you have; it only depends on your ability to follow some basic rules. In this workshop, you can learn the formula to increase your credit score and the opportunity to work one-on-one with a Financial Coach.
