Because swimming in student loan debt doesn’t count as cardio, so you’ll need some funds for that gym membership, plus your rent payment, phone bill and money for a social life, right? Well, even in college, some of these things require you to have a credit score, and a decent one at that. With so much on your plate, how are you possibly expected to focus on building your credit in college? That’s a great question and one that we are going to answer for you today with a special treat, so stay with me.
Hello everyone and thank you for tuning in to Ask Abby, my name is Abby and like I said, we have a special treat in today’s show. I’m interviewing Peyton Mandel, a current college student, who, while in college full-time, working part time, has also, somehow, managed to build her credit while in college. So, I’m going to bring on this credit guru in just a minute, but before I do, I just want to let you know how this show is going to work.
I have quite a few questions for her, but I’d also love to know what questions you have. So while we are chatting, please add your comments and questions in the comment bar and we will get to them toward the end of the show.
So, I’m going to go ahead and bring Peyton on now….
Hi, Peyton, welcome to the show!
We are so excited to have you on today and so excited to learn exactly how you’ve managed to juggle everything that you have going on and still been able to build up your killer credit score. So, we have a ton of questions for you, but first and foremost, would you mind giving us a quick introduction of what you have going on in your life right now?
