April is Financial Literacy Month – Establish Credit

Since April is Financial Literacy Month I’ve invited a few folks to share their blogs with my readers throughout the month.

One of the most often asked questions about personal finance is how to establish credit. There are several strategies that people use. One of my favorite tips is to get a cell phone. It’s a manageable monthly bill that will allow you to have a needed service while building credit. This article from The Smarter Wallet suggests a few other ways to establish credit.

Don’t forget to purchase a copy of Money Matters: The Get It Done in 1 Minute Workbook at a 25% discount (use code XS8K4YGX). Spread the word that financial literacy is power! Buy a book for a friend and a relative.
