Your credit score is a determining factor for many things in your life - from buying a new car and opening a credit card account to purchasing a new home and even getting a job. Many young adults today don’t understand what their credit score means or how the financial decisions they make impact it. On today’s episode, I’m going to explain what your credit score is and why it’s important to periodically check your credit report and address any issues that may arise. I’ll also explain how to check your credit report, how often you should check it, and why your credit history matters.
