Description: Debt and credit can be powerful tools, but only if used properly. Join us to learn ways to manage general debt, including deciding when it’s worth taking the debt in the first place; how to effectively manage a credit card; and why your credit score is so important for your future. Use debt and credit the right way, with confidence. The goal of “How to Manage Debt and Credit” is to help you understand and navigate the ever-expanding world of borrowing. You will learn how to manage general debt, and the difference between “good” debt and “bad” debt; how to use credit cards as a resource and a tool for your future; and what a credit score is, why it’s important, and strategies to improve a weak score or maintain a strong one. Debt and credit can be powerful tools, or dangerous opportunities. Take the time to learn how to use them correctly and you will thank yourself down the road.
