About Us

The Credit Solution Program offers products available for purchase that can help you learn about credit scores, debt, and other aspects of personal finance.

In addition to the products available for purchase, we provide valuable information on credit and finances through our email newsletter, video series, and blog articles.

Our goal is to help you strengthen your credit profile, which is one of the most crucial financial decisions you can make. Our books and training products are designed to be convenient, personal, and effective. Our program helps you to understand consumer credit by simplifying complex topics and making the most important information more easily accessible.

Our company was founded with two key principles: First and foremost as an informational resource for consumers on credit, debt, and other personal finance topics. Secondly, we aim to entertain while educating. We know that it’s often hard to get yourself focused to learn what you need to ultimately change your life for the better – so we strive to present our content in the most engaging way possible.
