Happy Holidays and a 2017 Announcement!

Hello everyone!

Normally on Wednesdays we share some of our thoughts related to the weekly podcast episode, but this week we are switching things up with an announcement.

Thank You!

First of all, we’d like to thank you so much for your support. The three of us have absolutely loved recording and producing the podcast. It’s been a fun project and one we hope you’ve enjoyed just as much as we have. We couldn’t continue without your support.

An Announcement

Secondly, we have an announcement. We’ve worked hard this year to bring you new content each week to listen and read. It’s unbelievable how much work actually goes into a podcast. We certainly didn’t know how much work it would be when we first began. 🙂 Thus, we are taking a short break from our regular schedule for the holidays.

We plan to spend time with family and friends resting and recouping from this crazy year. We’re also working on Financial Conversation 2.0!, which we plan to launch in January.

While we’re gone, you can go back and catch some of our other podcast episodes.

When we return, we plan to have plenty of new content and ideas to bring to the show, as well as some improvements behind-the-scenes to make it easier for you to enjoy our conversations.

We’re working on brainstorming new ideas for 2017, so if you have something you’d like us to cover, comment below or reach out to us on Facebook or Twitter.

For now, we hope you have a safe and happy holiday season!

It can affect the types of credit cards you can get, for sure, but it can also affect your car insurance, ability to get a mortgage and even your ability to get the job you want. Yes, employers look at credit reports, in an effort to see how responsible a person is.

So you want to repair your credit. How do you go about doing that? There are credit repair companies out there, but you may want to save a bit of money. Maybe you can spend hours on the phone with credit bureaus, navigating through the massive piles of paperwork that come from challenging negative items on your reports. It doesn’t sound like fun.
