Credit 101

Credit plays an important role in the development of one's financial and business life. Whether seeking financing from a lender or even through credit cards, credit determines the availability of credit and the cost that you pay for access to those funds. In addition, some auto insurers and employers also base decisions on credit. In this webinar, attendees will learn what makes up your credit score, where you can find your credit report for free, and tips for improving your score.  We will also focus on resources and tools that can make the teaching of credit repair more exciting.
