Credit is like Pizza

A guide to understanding and building credit.

About the Book

Credit is like pizza is a book written about the ins and outs of credit and credit scores in a language that teens or young adults can relate to without being bored silly. 

Because credit is like pizza, everyone will relate to it on a very basic level.  FOOD!

It is humorous, easy to understand and a must read for all young adults, teens and basically anyone else who will read it.  

You will learn how to establish credit, how to maintain credit and how to get the best credit score possible all while laughing at the examples that are secretly helping the information stick.  

Everyone can learn from the book Credit is like Pizza.  With illustrations and easy to understand language you don't need to be an expert to walk away feeling like one!  

Written because the author got tired of hearing the phrase "I wish someone would have taught me about my credit when I was young" when speaking with clients who had damage their credit at a young age.  

BUT, everyone can learn more about credit and credit scores and if you read this book you will!

This book was entertaining and very enlightening! It was easy to read and it answered some questions that have been bothering me about credit for a while. It reads like a story not a textbook. I highly recommend it.
