  1. Clever way to preview the conference through this podcast series that you’ve started. I even noticed how you have links built right into the conference agenda. :) I look forward to future podcast samplers.

    Excellent and poignant topic that trips up a lot of people, especially ADHDers. Great advice for those first few steps to tackling the problem that are universally applicable to anything we face. #1 Building awareness and defining the problem.

    One thing I hope Stephanie will bring up in the conference are the components of a credit score. One of the components that make up about 30% of our score is the credit utilization rate. Basically it’s a ratio of how much credit we use compared to how much we have available. So lowering a credit limit can potentially hurt your credit score.

    Understandably, the focus is on debt management and helping to curb our impulse spending that gets us in trouble in the first place. Still some basic understanding of how lenders use our credit score and how that can help us have a lower interest rate in the future thereby keeping more of our money rather than giving it to the banks.
