As a Certified Financial Planner, I know a lot about financial planning issues, but there’s one thing that I didn’t realize I didn’t know much about and that thing is credit.
Several years ago, I went on a bold quest to find what my true credit score was and in doing so, I quickly learned that there are many different types of credit scores. You can see that quest here.
That’s when I realized that there were a lot of things about credit that I didn’t know.
I was determined to find out, so I did a lot of research so that I understood how credit works especially since I devoted several chapter on credit in my book, Soldier of Finance.
That experience has help me realize that I need to seek out credit experts to help me keep up with the always changing credit landscape.
One such expert is Gerri Detweiler, who is the Director of Consumer Education at Credit.com. Gerri has become my go-to person for anything that has to do with credit.
I was excited when Gerri agreed to come on the GFC podcast to share her expertise, and also answer questions from the GFC community.
