Living Well with Bad Credit: Buy a House, Start a Business, and Even Take a Vacation No Matter How Low Your Credit Score
By Geoff Williams and Chris Balish
Here’s what the publisher’s site says about it: “Bad credit happens to good people, but it doesn’t have to ruin their lives. While there are many books about how to repair bad credit, there are exactly zero books about how to live with bad credit (the reality of more than 11.3 million Americans) and zero books about how to live well with bad credit. That’s where Living Well with Bad Credit comes in.
It’s a unique book that offers:
- Usable tips on how to embrace, and even benefit from, a low credit score
- Invaluable advice for dealing with ‘lifestyle’ events such as how to buy a
car or qualify for a credit card with bad credit
- Interviews with dozens of experts and successful professionals who
share ideas on how to live with the negative effects of bad credit
- Practical discussion on topics that go beyond finance, such as healing
self-esteem and building relationships in spite of bad credit.While bad credit can be a setback, it doesn’t have to be”
