What's the secret to getting a credit score of 800 or higher? Have you wondered about the relationship between a business credit score and business funding? When is it the right time to use business funding to grow your business to the next level? How can great credit help create financial freedom? Jordan Goodman, America's Money Answers Man, talks with Carl Scaramuzza, known as Credit Carl, in the first portion of today's show. In the second half, Jordan talks with John Lanza about helping kids learn strong personal finance skills. Lanza, author of "The Art of Allowance: A Short, Practical Guide to Raising Money-Smart, Money-Empowered Kids" plus the highly acclaimed Money Mammals book series, talks with Goodman about how critical it is for parents to help kids master critical personal finance skills from a young age. Goodman and Lanza discuss what allowances should and should not be, helping kids resist consumerism, avoiding raising spoiled kids and much more.
