Things I’ve Learned About Improving My Credit Score [TIPS]

Over the past year, I’ve been able to transform from Credit Standing though good habits, budgeting and discipline. I purchased my home, got approved for a 0% interest loan on my car, and overall get way more “You’re Approved” letters than I use to. There was a point when I could barely get approved for a $100.00 credit line. Today, I have credit that is equivalent to some people’s annual salaries. I’ve learned not to spend what I cannot pay back in cash and to pay my creditors ON TIME.

I subscribed to Equifax’s Credit Monitoring service to stay up to date on my score and changes to my report. Additionally, I created an account at CreditKarma.com (which is free). Once a year, I also obtain a FREE copy of my credit report (from all 3 credit bureaus) at: ANNUAL CREDIT REPORT.

I am posting a few tips and things that were helpful for me in hopes that it will help others. However, the most important thing to keep in mind is that this process is about DISCIPLINE. You have to make a decision that you are going to FOCUS on making things better and really ACT on your desire to fix things. Personally, I have enjoyed so many more opportunities because of the choices I’ve made about my credit. You can too.

As of today, my score is 715. I can remember a time when it was 520, so don’t be discouraged. I plan to continue to increase my score through the habits I’ve created. Check out these tips and feel free to let me know if you have any specific questions. I’ll do my best to continue to post resources on this topic…. […]

#212Degrees | Need To Renew Your Inspiration? READ and WATCH This Video!

I cannot explain all of the positive energy I feel around me. Today, I had the opportunity to share ideas with my co-workers about how we can “renew our passions,” and take our Digital Influence to the NEXT level. It was very inspiring and left so many of us feeling EMPOWERED.

Sometimes, it is so easy to just “let life happen” when we should be raising our standards and expanding our success. I never want to forget what it felt like to be where I am today. I never want to settle. I want to rise to my highest potential and enjoy an infinite expansion of success. What we focus on, grows. We must FEED our passions daily, renew the inspiration that got us going in the first place and put in the WORK to see our dreams manifest themselves.

I am proud of what I’ve accomplished (so far) in my life, but I am convinced that if I apply MORE effort, I can create a life that many would consider “unimaginable.” THIS VIDEO has me motivated in ways I cannot explain! The concept of “212” degrees can be applied to your life spiritually and professionally. Please watch it and be inspired!! […]

Between the Ages of 28-32? READ THIS | You could be experiencing your “Saturn Return”

If you’re between the ages of 28-32, chances are you’re feeling like life is taking on a “new meaning” OR life is just passing you by. Some may blame their fluctuating emotions but there’s a reason why you’re feeling this way. It’s your Saturn Return.

This is such a special time in your life. It’s a time when you should really get serious about your goals and pursue your dreams. I am 33 years old and can truly say, I experienced some of the BEST years of my life during my “Saturn Return.” I moved to Atlanta and got my first major market radio gig, my web development business grew, my physical fitness improved, I purchased my first home, I GOT MARRIED and gave birth to my first daughter. I also grew (tremendously) in my awareness of the “Law of Attraction.”

Keep in mind, your Saturn Return could also represent a BIG CHANGE  in your life (like changing careers, beginning new relationships, etc.)

You could be on the brink of something INCREDIBLE! I did a little research online about the Saturn Return and have compiled some things you should know here. Check it out: […]
