COMMUNITY PARTNER - Credit Matters: Know Your Score and More

The Zions Bank Business Resource Center has been an incredible partner in supporting our M43 entrepreneurs. Through workshops and one-on-one support they have been providing the knowledge, tools, and guidance needed to succeed as a small business. Check out this event…it will be well worth your time!

ABOUT THIS EVENT FROM THE ZIONS BANK BRC:

Your credit score can affect what interest rates you are offered on loans, if you will be considered for certain jobs or even if you qualify for the best auto insurance rates. So how do you build and manage credit? This topic isn’t usually taught in schools or discussed at the family dinner table, leaving most of us to try to figure things out on our own. We hope we’ll get it right.

But hope is not a financial strategy. Our best intentions can sometimes lead to costly mistakes or misinformation that limit our personal and business opportunities. Learn how to take control of your credit by attending this complimentary workshop. In this workshop, you will learn about:

• Different types of credit and the cost of credit

• What goes into a credit score

• Where to access your credit report

• How to identify and dispute errors

• When and why you might need a credit freeze

• How financial institutions and others use credit data for decisions

• Good habits you can begin today to improve your situation
