How do you begin again when your divorce wreaked havoc on your finances, your lifestyle, and your emotions? From reading my book you know that I got divorced after 11 years. I had no idea how vast the devastation of my divorce would be on every element of my life.
Coming to the decision that my marriage was ending was already heartbreaking and then to discover the financial pitfall it put me in was horrific. I learned very quickly that businesses and financial institutions treat people that have a 760-credit score very different from people that have a 526-credit score.
I was the same person that paid my bills on time, but because the Ex chose not to pay for the things he was financially responsible for, I got caught in the crossfire of the collapse. This 526-credit score caused my interest rates to rise, my insurance premiums to increase, and my job to question my integrity because of the drastic drop in my credit score. Before this happened to me I had no idea how closely jobs viewed your credit rating. Not knowing where to turn, I decided I would have to participate in my own rescue. I read everything I could find on credit restoration, money management, and investment opportunities. I learned how to effectively manage my credit and how it affects the decision-making process used by lenders. I leveraged this knowledge to start over because the increased cost of my bills forced me out of the 2-bedroom apartment I was living in with my two sons.
When you’re a single mother that sees the foundation of your existence rocking your children to the edge, you move pass all your fears. I started my real estate investment business that I later named Source Trinity Homes. My business helped me to streamline my efforts to get a new home, increase my credit rating, and give my children a stable foundation.
The lessons from my struggles are woven into the fabric of my company. I share the lessons that I learned so that I can have a positive affect on the people I encounter and to inspire, motivate, and create lasting change in everyone I meet.
