From Childhood Games to Credit Scores…

Thank you for sponsoring this post.’s team understands that a credit score is not just a number; it’s a lifestyle.

Okay, friends. Let’s talk money. 

A few weeks ago, I shared a slightly more personal post about my experience with credit card debt. It was a tough one to write but one a lot of you seemed to relate to and it got me thinking. We don’t really talk about money a lot. And we should.

One of my biggest takeaways as an adult (so far) is that it’s okay to turn to the pros when we need help. Whether it’s keeping our house clean, organizing closets, doing our taxes or re-decorating our living room sometimes things go better when we enlist a little bit of help. 

Well, the same goes for our credit. Now don’t get me wrong, we are much more than our credit score and it’s definitely not written in stone. At the same time, it won’t fix itself.’s mission is to empower each of us to achieve the credit score we deserve & enjoy a lifestyle of greater opportunity. They focus on their customers’ stories and determination to develop a healthier relationship with their credit and make a significant, long-lasting lifestyle change that can provide access to their financial dreams.

Let’s take a step back for a second. For most of us, our first experience with money was playing board games as a child. Whether you were buying property, trading assets or planning your life one roll of the dice at a time – we were taught at an early age to dream big and plan the life we wanted to live. Fast forward to today and man do I wish it was that easy. 

Brandon and I have been in our first home for a little over a year and we’re starting to have conversations about our future and building a family (Brandon, no pressure if you’re reading this – just bein’ real). As we work together to build a steady future, a lot of that focus is on finances. We’re having conversations on how we can do that together and create joint wealth but a lot of it also has to do with our personal finance history. I struggled with credit card debt in the past and as PROUD as I am that I’ve been able to put that behind me, I’m still in the process of building up my credit score. It truly is much more than a number – it’s a lifestyle – so I’m putting in a lot of work to plan and dream, just like I did as a child. 

Knowing that there is a team of pros I can lean on to educate and empower people like me looking to achieve the credit score I deserve is a weight lifted, truly. Yes, the responsibility is on me but I’m all for turning to outside help. That’s where comes in.
