Adulting is Serious Business (trailer)
Hello and welcome to this episode of Journey into Finance- a mother's journey with your host En Towner, author of Journey into Finance, blogger and advocate of financial literacy. In a previous episode of my podcast called Master the Game I spoke a little bit about credit and after a suggestion from one of our listeners in addition to a conversation with one of my daughters, I decided to delve a bit deeper on how I established a credit score over 700 and watched it fall down to 300 and started my own credit repair. Thanks for joining and for your financial support.  Suggestions for the audience name can be sent to etjourne.com/contact.
