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. We distribute a sample credit report to the participants and go through the details to give them a hands-on experience of interpreting a credit report. In this workshop, we?ll cover:
What are credit scores?
How are credit scores calculated?
Changing your credit score
What types of financing are available?
What lenders look for
