Understanding Credit: Behind the Numbers


Credit is a super popular topic. And there’s a myth that because you have good credit, you’re in good financial health. Chloe and Lauryn constantly see people getting taken advantage of by people on social media, promising to help others fix their credit. Your credit score is not the end-all-be-all, and good credit doesn’t mean you have good financial habits.

So, Chloe and Lauryn are going behind the numbers to help you understand what you need to know about credit.

In this episode, Lauryn and Chloé talk about:

  • The BIG myth around your credit score
  • ​The details about your credit report and credit score
  • ​What “good” credit actually means, and what it can do for you
  • ​Why a good credit score isn’t an indicator of financial health
  • ​How to check your credit report three times a year & why you should
  • ​Types of credit
  • ​How to be smart with credit
  • ​What to think about before “credit card hacking”

“It’s foolish to buy something that’s overpriced; more foolish, if it’s unnecessary; and even more foolish, to buy it on credit.” ― Mokokoma Mokhonoana
