Do you know your credit score?

(Because it’s probably affecting your life more than you realize.)

Bank of the West’s Mitch Taralson joins us for Episode 20 to share his “Five Things To Improve Your Credit Score.”

We also talk about credit score rumors. Does your job affect your score? Does being married? How about how often you check your own score…does that hurt you?

Mitch shares why all of these are important:

1. The impact of your payment history
2. Utilization of all of your credit
3. How long you have been using credit
4. Why types of accounts you have
5. New credit and credit inquiries
