Remote Jobs to Grow Your Business

Getting business financing, without having great credit, often comes down to being able to prove the minimum amount of sales or revenue requested by the lender.

I made a promise to every incubator member that I would help you get business financing even if you have “bad” credit. I meant what I said, not only are we providing you with alternative financing options, but also we’re leading a 60 day credit bootcamp to help you raise your score to a 620, the average score that business financiers like to see for business loans, business lines of credit, and business credit cards. I have brought in the best credit repair expert that I know, Alleyna Alleyne, who I’ve watched raise her clients scores 107 points in 60 days (580-687). And she’s joining us to help every woman in the incubator get to at least a score of 620 to qualify for more business funding. So if you need help with your credit, or even want to go well past 620, mark your calendar and tune in for this special masterclass series. Alleyna can be reached via email at aalleyne@tiptopfinancials.com.
