all things money, honey

This post is sponsored by Lexington Law, but the content and opinions expressed here are my own.

I recently talked about finances, budgeting, and saving on my YouTube channel. So many people left comments about how these things aren't talked about enough, or how they wish they learned more about these topics in school. I couldn't agree more.

When I entered the real world - aka, left for college - I knew zilch about money. I would always call up my mom with questions. Heck, I still do at 33-years-old. At the time, I knew very little about credit and how it impacted my chances of renting an apartment or purchasing a car. I also racked up a lot of debt using a credit card, which I'm still trying to pay off. I'm so close!

I honestly never paid much attention to my credit score, until it was time to purchase our home years ago. Purchasing a home is a lot as it is. Throw in being self-employed and a credit score that needs improving, and it almost seems impossible. My husband and I thankfully made it work, but I definitely started paying more attention and educating myself.

Today, I can confidently say that I'm proud of my credit score.

I'm working with Lexington Law on this blog post to share how they are helping me maintain good credit. Lexington Law is a consumer advocacy law firm that has been helping people improve their credit for over a decade. Not only do they manage and monitor your credit, they also challenge any negative items with credit bureaus.

Personally, they are currently working on a dispute to remove a negative item from my credit. Years ago, I was unaware our lender sold our mortgage to another servicing company. I missed a payment and it negatively impacted my credit score. Lexington Law is working to remove this negative item, which is truly awesome.

Besides this, what I love about Lexington Law is that I can find tools and everything I need to know on their website or app. I can see my credit score and reports, negative items, cases, and more. There is even a money manager that allows me to track our expenses, create a budget, and set goals. Like I said, it's a one stop shop for everything I need in terms of money.

I highly recommend Lexington Law if you are looking to learn more about all things money and improve or manage your credit. They offer free 10-minute consultations, along with free credit score, credit report summary, and expert recommendation.
