Build Your Credit to Grow Your Business

 When you’re a business owner, strong credit scores can be an asset by helping you qualify for a business credit card, an SBA loan, or other types of funding that take the owner’s personal credit into account. But if you’re not careful, your business can hurt your credit scores. In addition, your business also has its own credit scores and reports which are used in a variety of credit and business decisions, but many business owners don’t know that.

This workshop is presented by credit expert Gerri Detweiler, head of Market Education at Nav.com.

Date: Wednesday, April 5, 2017
Time: 6:30 - 8:30 p.m.
