Same here.

She's actually the one that taught me a thing or two about credit/finances. And I thought I knew a thing or two. Go figure.

Mine really took over finances for 14 months. She basically got things organized and transferred around to save money. She knows nothing about credit repair but has never had an issue or reason to learn.


I did the repair work on past mistakes. I'm done repairing, though. Last late payment falls off in Oct.

I thought that because I'm an A+ in budgeting and saving money that that meant that I was an A+ in credit scores/reports.

She's not as good with the budgeting but she doesn't spend unwisely either... so we've learned from each other.


Amazing how it can work out when two contrasting styles mesh and work together as a team.
