Personal credit plays an important role in your business. Small or start-up businesses have not had the chance to establish business credit, so their access to capital is tied directly to the credit of the owners. In this live webinar, we’ll cover:
What are credit scores
How are credit scores calculated
Changing your credit score
What types of financing are available
What lenders look for
In addition to these items, we’ll look at a sample credit report so the participants can go through the details to give them a hands-on experience of interpreting a credit report.
