Build Your Credit To Grow Your Business

When you’re a business owner, strong credit scores can be an asset by helping you qualify for a business credit card, an SBA loan, or other types of funding that take the owner’s personal credit into account. But if you’re not careful, your business can hurt your credit scores. In addition, your business also has its own credit scores and reports which are used in a variety of credit and business decisions, but many business owners don’t know that.

In this workshop you will learn:

  • The fastest ways to boost your personal credit scores

  • The big credit score mistake many small business owners make

  • Key ways business credit is different from personal credit

  • Quick steps you can take now to build business credit (even if you have no business credit or poor personal credit)

  • And much more!
