Patience is Key

I started my journey in March 2013 with a credit score of 492 across the board! It has been almost 5 months, and now Fico Scores: EX 581 EQ 499 TU 572!

My Equifax needs to hurry and catch up...I know I have to have patience because I didn't get myself in this mess overnight...I just hope I reach my goal of 640+ by the time my lease is up in March 2014!

I have been working really hard trying to get our finances back on track!

Advice for future newlyweds--Do not go into debt trying to have a perfect wedding...invest in your future!! A wedding last 4 hours, and your future last a lifetime!!
