67. How to Fix Your Credit Score When It Drops 100 Points

June 8, 2022

Adulting is sooooo hard. You would think after doing it for this long, I’d have it down packed right? No!

Recently, my life has been crazy. And like most people, when my life gets off track from my routine other things can go sideways too. 

In this episode, I share why my credit score dropped 100 points and how I fixed it in less than 10 days. 

I learned from this experience that I am not perfect. However, if I can share my truth, maybe it might help you. 

In this episode you'll learn:

  • How in the heck I missed two credit card payments
  • The consequences of not paying your credit card bills on time
  • What factors impact your credit score
  • Steps you can take to raise your credit score, and more
