I remember during the remodel of my home a few years ago having to visit the home improvement store several times. Throughout the course of the sixty days of remodeling, I was called on (obviously) to buy various home related products. All my other credit cards to this point had small limits of $500-2000 limits.
When speaking to many clients who live “paycheck to paycheck” I had a thought before the end of 2017 to create a challenge for myself to live as they do for some time. I know in order to be empathic one does not need to go through a client's specific situation but I became rather curious what it is like having to count literally every penny spent.
Many clients have asked me for a place to receive their credit score. I have always defaulted to saying “go to your bank/credit union or Google it.” But after my own experience with Credit Sesame, I knew I needed to share.
I remember being a child and the thought of having my own space always was an exciting prospect. Coming from a family of six with four boys (yes, no sisters) let's say life was rather loud and hectic in our home.
Whether you're applying for a loan, mortgage or are just getting ahead of the financial game it is always smart to look at your credit report. I have much critique of our government but this is one specific area that I really appreciate.
