This is a 5,000+ word guide on how to become a master of all things credit and credit scoring.
Yup, you read that right. 5,000+ words.
I am not a big fan of using 5,000 words when 500 will do, but a topic this important demands a thorough write up.
First, because your credit score is a vital part of your financial health, and therefore your overall well-being.
Bad credit = more stress, more frustration, and more money needed to buy things like houses and cars. (Read: less freedom)
And secondly, because 90% of the things that you read and hear about credit scores are completely false.
Everybody thinks they understand credit scores when in truth, less than 10% of these people have any idea what they’re talking about. (10% figure based on my own experiences. Scientific accuracy be damned)
Today you become a part of that educated minority.
Over the next 5,000+ words you’ll learn everything you’ll ever need to know about credit and credit scoring.
Go ahead and bookmark this page because you’ll probably want to refer back to it a time or two.
At the very least it will help you diffuse your friend/roommate/coworker/neighbor who keeps telling you that credit cards are evil and to be avoided at all costs. (Face palm)
Ready? Let’s get started.
Alright, travel junkies.
Earlier this week I shared a few things that I learned in 2015 and told you about the new direction for GFF.
Today, I want to share something even cooler.
To show my commitment to helping you create a lifestyle of freedom, I am going to give away 15 free 15-minute conversations.
No sales pitch, no hassles, no BS.
2014 was a year of excitement and change for GFF.
How much change?
Well, one year ago my website looked like this.
I was one step short of becoming one of those “Airlines HATE him! Try this one neat trick to save MILLIONS!” websites.
And I wondered why my friends thought I was crazy…….
While skimming news headlines last week I came across an article titled “United Airlines sues 22-year-old who found method for buying cheaper plane tickets”.
Being a 20 something-year-old who helps people learn methods for buying cheaper plane tickets, I was naturally a little concerned.
Apparently a lot of you were as well, as I received more than a dozen emails about it.
A quick peruse of the article confirmed my suspicions that one of the major airlines had finally decided to sue the creator of Skiplagged.com, a website that helps travelers find cheaper flights by using a strategy called “hidden city ticketing”.
Let’s walk through an example to show you how this works.
