Credit plays a huge role in the world of start up businesses, but depending on when you were born, you may have viewed credit as only being used for big purchases such as home loans, or to finance a car. This certainly holds true for many consumers; however, credit is also being used in other ways such as jump starting a small business, traveling, and for daily essentials.
In our most recent installment in partnership with FICO, Real Credit Conversations: Young Adults on FICO® Scores, we are exploring how a few young adults first learned about the importance of credit reports, their FICO® Scores, and how they are actively using credit to fund their needs and some of their wants.
First up, we met Lawren, who shared with us how her father’s savviness and knowledge of credit taught her how to navigate starting out small to accomplish some of her financial goals.
Next, we had Kyle, who committed to moving across several state lines in pursuit of his first home. Kyle’s patience and parents were huge influences on his smart credit habits.
For our last installment we have Marshae. Marshae has been a Small Business owner since college, and contributes much of her success to using smart money tactics to hire, scale, and continuously move her business forward.
