So, do you know how your credit score is measured and the different credit scores that you have?
What about the specific actions you should be taking to build, improve and maintain good credit?
A good credit score makes it easier to get credit, qualify for some types of employment and can also save you thousands of dollars over the course of your life. The good news is that building solid credit is not difficult, as long as you understand the fundamentals of building credit and managing it responsibly.
