It's amazing how many things your credit score affects in life. I guess people who are going to do business with you want to find the easiest way to see if you are going to hold up your end of the bargain, and your credit score is the way they do that. I will be making sure my kids know to get a good score early and to maintain it.

This was a great video with lots of wonderful information. It's amazing just how important our credit score is to our lives and just how much it affects us. I didn't realize how much it did until well into adulthood, and ever since then, I have been very careful to make sure that I've been careful with it.

Your credit scores and credit history can influence so much these days! It's important to make sure you are checking those things frequently and keeping up with your payments, so your credit scores stay good.

It's so easy for your credit score to dip and so hard to build it back up again. But it does effect so many elements of your life. Great video and insight!
