Unveiling the Secrets Behind Your Credit Score
Ever wonder why the credit score a lender receives isn’t the same as what you just received off of one of the free credit report sites? Why do the 3 main credit reporting agencies never have the same score – sometimes even up to a 100 point difference? How can you ensure you’re maximizing the key factors that drive the credit reporting agency’s scoring models?
If you’ve ever been shocked by a lender telling you your score isn’t quite what you thought it was, then you are not alone. Millions of Americans, even those within the finance/lending world that routinely deal with credit, are often left wondering how and why their score is what it is. Understanding how to maximize your credit score will have a long lasting impact on just about every facet of your life now and in the future. Those that chose to ignore it and hope that all is well are almost always certain to pay significantly more, sometimes totaling hundreds of thousands of dollars over their lifetime.

The Faurote Group, a consulting firm that’s been instrumental in helping organizations grow, explains a proven, step-by-step process to help determine the state of your business. This webinar will give you valuable insight in preparing for the next step in the business planning process.
