Your Credit & You
Presented in partnership with Gloucester County Library System
Personal credit plays an important role in your business. Small or start-up businesses have not had the chance to establish business credit, so their access to capital is tied directly to the credit of the owners. In this workshop, we’ll cover:
- What are credit scores
- Credit myths
- How are credit scores calculated
- Changing your credit score
- What types of financing are available
- What lenders look for
In addition to these items, we’ll distribute a sample credit report and go through the details with you to give you a hands-on experience of interpreting a credit report.
