STATS OF BLACK WOMEN IN FINANCE

Black females are working successfully around the globe in the financial field, despite racism challenges. Women-owned businesses are low in the market, and black women commonly face a lack of venture capital funding and access to loans. American Express reported that the ratio of women of color from 2018-19 is increased in women-owned businesses. During a similar period, black women entrepreneurs experienced a high growth rate in the financial industry than any other group.

psychology Jun 18, 2020

According to the Oxford Dictionary, Resilience is "the capacity to recover quickly from difficulties; toughness."  I have been reticent on my blog as life has taken a tailspin.  Between the coronavirus pandemic, protesting to prove MY LIFE MATTERS, getting married, taking a securities test (not once but twice) and failing, being thrown into homeschooling my kids, completely revamping everything behind the scenes of my business, wondering if I am still going to make my goal of being debt-free (except real estate) by 30, not being able to flex my extrovert muscles, life has taken an interesting turn.

Uncategorized Jun 14, 2020

Definition

A number given to an individual to indicate creditworthiness to a lender.

Why It's Important

I am sure every one reading this knows what a credit score is.  If not, check out my blog posts below.  So, I am not going to bore you with details but I am going to provide some facts you may not have known!

There are hundreds of different credit scores lenders use to evaluate your creditworthiness.  No, there is not just one or three but hundreds! It is almost safe to say that each lender will probably use a different score that's why sites like Credit Karma and Credit Sesame can only give you an estimate.  Don't be surprised if it doesn't match what the lender pulled on you.

You can request a copy of what the lender used!  If you would like to see how your creditworthiness was evaluated, the lender has to provide a copy of what they used by law.  So, if you are curious just ask for it!
Most jobs now look at your credit score!  As a matter...
