Happy New Year and a cheer to a healthy credit report for 2009!
So few Canadians have any idea what their credit score is or how it affects a huge portion of their financial life - their debt!
In my newest book, She Inc., I dedicate a large section to helping readers understand the importance of their credit score, how to clean up their credit and report if it's less than satisfactory and how to empower themselves with lenders. It's still a mystery to most and a societal taboo. But we need to start talking in order to dig our way out of this mess, especially with the economy on the skids.
Credit Canada reports that we're over 1.1 trillion dollars in household debt - so you're not alone.
Over the coming weeks, I'll dedicate my blog writings to this very important subject, or of course, you can get She Inc. at your local book store or library if you'd like to get a jump start on understanding, protecting and repairing your credit.
Check back soon and be sure to leave a comment if you have a credit question.
