August 14, 2019

Much of our financial life often revolves around one number- our credit score. It’s really important that your score is in a healthy range as it impacts loan terms, insurance rates, and even job offers. Luckily we all have free access to our credit scores, credit reports, and the steps we need to take to ensure that our credit score is in great shape. We’re sharing that information with you in this episode. Depending on your history, it could be a long road of rebuilding your credit, but boosting your score can help in more ways than you may even realize!

  1. Hi guys! Listening a 2nd time because I’m either a knucklehead and missed the fine and simple point I was hoping to hear… or well, let’s assume I missed it with kids loading in and out of the backseat. But my vanilla question is probably based on old mythology… but IS IT TRUE that if/when I order my credit reports from the Big-3 credit agencies… that it puts a credit mark against me for the queries? Pls advise? Thanks a million, love the show. And PS yes… lots of dating sites targeting working professionals have men and women who shout out their scores. Funny ~ but real. SoCal jb

    • Hey JB! No, if you check your own score that counts as a ‘soft inquiry’ and your score shouldn’t be affected.

      Haha, and pretty funny that folks are touting their credit scores. It’s great that it’s being talked about I guess- certainly better than hiding it!
